Itegami (Gijinka) - Okami


Ayacon 2011




When I saw there was an Okami group I was really eager but didn't think I'd suit any of the characters. Then I realised they were doing the Zodiac Gods O_O

Itegami is awesome! Power of Blizzard, giant conch horn, long coat, lots of layers... *realises this is for a con in August* DAMMIT! LOL

Seriously, I can't wait for this. It's an amazing group of cosplayers and I'm just honoured to be a part of it!

Wow, I do not envy you. XD Mine isn't anywhere near as layered as this and I'm still like "DEAR GOD NO LINING I WILL MELT". This is really cool though, no pun intended.

sjbonnar posted on 16 June, 2011 - 15:44
LMAO No, I think most of us are looking at layers, I just think I got the short straw in terms of heat LOL Love him though! ^_^ (NO LINING ON THIS COAT PLZ! >_<)

This is going to look awesome...we are going to look awesome =D I love this outfit but will be very warm I think unless you cheat a bit. (Such a thing as a thin/light fabric that looks like winter clothing? XD)

I like the chunky rope, did it come like that or did you twist smaller ones together?

sjbonnar posted on 29 July, 2011 - 20:10
Kawaii: Thank you very much ^_^ Amy: I tried doing one last failed miserably. Then I got the idea to try and find a barrier rope LOL

Progress Journal

9th August 2011

First Layer of Papier Mache

DONE! Another layer or two then PAINT!

Does it look like a Kakuna to anyone else...?

9th August 2011

Final Shape

Ok, so the final shape of the horn (more angular than I'd like...) and I've covered the duct tape with masking tape as I plan on papier macheing it later and I know from experience that papier mache doesn't cling to duct tape.

8th August 2011

Taking Shape

Ok, so the thing is starting to take shape now. Cut my fingers to ribbons on loose bits of wire...not fun LOL


7th August 2011

Work Begins on the Conch Horn

Ok, so I started work on the horn... the base I was planning to use fell through so got wire mesh and decided to make a shape out of that.

It's so much stronger than I remember!

6th August 2011

BAH! New Fabric

Still haven't heard back from the fabric place so I took matters into my own hands. Went out and decided instead of Polyester I'd go for an off-white Cotton Drill. Got a bi-stretch variant so it has some give. I'd hate to ruin the coat just because it doesn't move well with me ^_^'

28th July 2011

Wig, Earmuffs, Scarf and Rope

Just a shot of some of the things I have so far!

Sorry for the blurriness!

27th July 2011

Rope sorted!

One of the odd things I've been sorting is the thick, braided rope which Itegami wears to hold his conch horn.

18th July 2011


Gods, I've been working on the oddest things lately to get this sorted LOL After the fiasco with the fabric I've gotta send that back and get new stuff so now I'm focussing on things that aren't the coat. Got the scarf sorted now, just need to do a bit more sewing on it ^_^

It's two bought scarves that I've had to modify to suit the length and style but almost done!

15th July 2011

FABRIC RAGE the fabric that I ordered showed up...and it's black ¬_¬

HOW FAR FROM WHITE CAN YOU GET!? The seller's response? "Sometimes it happens." ¬_¬ But they are swapping it thankfully.

GRR! Delayed!

5th July 2011


The wig arrived and is pretty nice, needs a little bit of styling and it'll be sorted!
