29th July 2011: Nearly done! I've finished the boiler suit! :D I'm really happy with the way it's turned out! I've also painted the shoes. All I have to do is the collar and then I'm done!! :D So excited!! :)
27th July 2011: Progress! My friend who can't attend the expo gave me a boiler suit that I could use! :D The colours a bit off but I don't really mind that. It was absolutely MASSIVE on me so I had to take it in a lot! Lucky, Ganta's costume has seams both down the front and back that I could use to disguise all the alterations.
I've also made all the belt holders he has although you can't see them clearly on the picture.
The logos took quite a long time, I'm really proud of how the back turned out. The front one had to be cut down as it didn't fit on the pocket....so it could've looked better! (but I still like it)
Hopefully a lot more progress tomorrow!! X'D
14th July 2011: Wig styled I'm not great at wig styling and this is my first time styling in spikes and so on...X'D
I think it turned out well! His hair is different in each picture so I spiked the back and tried to make the main spikes at the front. The big one in the middle was quite hard to do so I think it turned out pretty well.
I have so much to do on this cosplay otherwise ^^;; I need help whether to buy or make a boiler suit base...
21st June 2011: Wig base The wig arrived literally about 30 minutes ago X'D I had to try it on so here is how it looks! It obviously needs styling but it's a good base I think. It's slightly thin in areas but I think it'll be fine (well, hope it will)...It makes my eyes stand out but Ganta has brown eyes, and I'm not keen on contact lenses. Anyway - back to textiles revision ^^;;
13th June 2011: Wig and so on I've ordered the wig (which will need a lot of styling!!) which will hopefully come in the next 2/3 weeks.
Now, the boiler suit base is proving really hard to find. I just can't find the right colour or size (I found a really good colour/price but started at 42" chest...which is way too big for me). As the style I'm looking for is men's I'm probably going to have to order the smallest male chest size...>.<;;
