Alto Saotome (SMS Jacket) - Macross Frontier




First character I have *wanted* to cosplay in a long time and I was so eager to do it I thought I would throw something together for October Expo.

So far I have already messed up one wig but the rest of it is turning out okay.

So far I have made 99.5% of the Jacket and got most of everything else I need. Just need to do the belt and wig now really.

PRINCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESS! And then a million paper planes blotted out the sun. I like the material choice a lot I must say.

I fully blame my camera, it really did pull some horrible stunts on me this time round -- the wig comes out a really weird colour compared to how it looked in person o.O That's no matter what settings and colour correction I pull on it, it's convinced half of it is black. Photos aside I still thought this looked really good :P The jacket especially, and I recognised it without having seen any of the series at the time ;)

Hey Mark, saw this at Expo whilst you were running the cosplay desk. Sorry I did not get a chance to introduce myself/chat because although you kept looking over at my and Kat's conversation, I had to quickly go :(
