Dave Strider
Homestuck

Cosplayer: AkujiDelano

Variant: God Tier

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

24th June 2012: Dying cloak again! Today I went out and got some darker dye. With this I can make the hood and cloak a much darker shade of red.
Hopefully that'll make the entire cosplay less of a red blob.
Just need to have access to the washing machine and it will be fine and dandy.
Also I am planning to make a Lil' Cal for LFCC ;w;

6th June 2012: Moving on! My friend wishes to attend LFCC in Earl's Court in July, so I'm going to be wearing this again to it.
I shall be accompanied by the same John as before, we plan to get some more photos in the more urban areas round the back of the building, hopefully.
Can't wait to go.

27th May 2012: May Expo - Just got back ...wow.
Just WOW.
Excellent time, excellent people. Got tonnes of photos I am waiting to be uploaded, including some HetaStuck ones! Promoting the fandom love ;w;
Everyone else's Homestuck cosplays looked much improved. Very very high quality this Expo. I'm very happy c:

23rd May 2012: Finished! It's taken a very long time, but now I can say I am DONE DONE DONE with this cosplay!
I absolutely can't wait to wear it and see the Homestuck crowd again, and get some pictures with my John.

11th April 2012: Cloak + shoes I've cut out my cloak, and I've managed to make the main body of it. I've also used bondaweb to create the little square cut-outs without fraying it. I'm going to be making my hood very soon, it's just a bit difficult making it from scratch, and I'm trying to be careful, so it's being slow.
I also got some shoes in Sainsbury's which were very cheap, they're like converse but they're not hightops, and without the logos.

5th April 2012: Today I go shopping Today I venture into the big wide world to obtain some red material for my cloak.
I am also going to try and investigate New Look because I saw some maroon trousers there recently.
...I also need to get hold of some fairly cheap small shoes just for hanging around with in Dave. My Converse are a bit tatty and have drawings all over them.
Wish me luck D:

4th February 2012: New T-Shirt So then I just redid everything and put a new transfer on a new shirt. :I

12th January 2012: T-Shirt Repairs And then my Dave shirt was washed.
Oho, that should be okay, you say.
No, it was washed with dishwasher powder instead of washing powder.
:I
So the design has completely peeled off and corroded.
Luckily I got a spare red shirt so I just need to print this design again and iron it on. D:

7th January 2012: Retrieved sunglasses! Got them! I can't stop wearing them now ;w;

3rd January 2012: Sunglasses shipped I received word today that my sunglasses have shipped! Apparently the bank holiday and everything really messed up the times D:
The listing said it would take around 2-3 days to properly post, so they'll be here eventually ;3;

31st December 2011: Knight of Time shirt completed Had to buy some more transfer paper DX
But now I guess I have a surfeit of it for the future?
Made cog vector. Got my cog on [now an inside joke in my family, aaaa]
And ironed it on, so that's all well and good :D

30th December 2011: Red t-shirt bought Managed to find one. All I need now is some transfer paper and I'll be set D:
I can't have used up all my transfer paper at once, right?

30th December 2011: Wig arrived! My wig arrived at my dad's work, so he brought it home with him! Just tried it on now. Hopefully when I get aviators I can look properly cool :3
