21st April 2012: Re-doing Jade There were a lot of things wrong with my Jade cosplay and I really want to improve on it. I've decided to enter it into the London MCM Expo Masquerade on the Sunday in May. Before then I need to improve the belt (including making a back holder for the staff), a staff that lights up (determined to make it light up), and improve the trousers and tidy up the jacket.

I began improving some of the stuff today but have run into a wall already. The pattern on the side of the trousers was pretty poorly done as it was rush job at 1am the day before Minami. So I decided to make a new pattern and sew it on, but the one I've made don't cover all the paint -_- And I can't get the acrylic off without ruining the fabric.
But that's not a problem. As long as I can get some more of the original fabric again I can re-make the trousers from scratch and apply the new pattern. Which will be better for a competition as the trousers I have so far are no good. They're poorly altered to my body shape and are too short with not enough flare.

I know I'm probably being really anal about the details, but like my Horo coslay, I want the work I create to be perfect. If it's not, then I need to improve it and wear it again. Which is great because I like wearing my costumes more than once and it's a good excuse to do so.

Also, because Jade was a rush job before I didn't take ANY progress pics. Not good for a competition. So I'll take progress pics this time of my improvements and put them online :)

Absolutely fantastic! This is definitely an underappreciated game so it's a pleasure to see it brought to life.

Your wig and jacket are awesome! If you don't mind me asking, how did you go about styling the wig and making the jacket? I cosplay Jade as well, & it's interesting that we both want a working dai-jo 8D Really hope I'm around to see you masqerade this on the Sun of Expo!!

Wow I am bad at replying >_<

For Heorot: The wig is a short black wig from WonderlandWigs.com and really didn't need much styling. As for the jacket, I used the same fabric as the trousers, dyed it and used a pattern for a womans suit jacket, but altering it to match the original and adding in the extra pockets and other features :)

Thanks very much everyone for the nice feedback ^^;

Awesome cosplay of one of my favourite characters. Not enough people do Beyond Good and Evil cosplay.
