21st February 2012: ....... The amount of diamonds I have cut out for this costume? I've lost fucking count.
19th January 2012: Gloves progress on how the "skin" diamonds look on the glove
16th January 2012: Fabric update OK well... one of the trickiest things for this cosplay was deciding how to do all of the "skin-coloured" diamonds which run on the legs, gloves, stomach etc. - I didn't want to cut them out of the material, as they would not come out as diamond shapes (I tested on a cut-off from my morphsuit, they would just re-shape into weird circle shapes), and fabric paint seemed like an option but sometimes it doesn't come out the way you want (I would have probably had to mix paints to get the right colour, and there would likely be some type of inconsistency in the mixes I would do, knowing my luck), anyway today I happened to be in perfect luck to find some awesome fabric in *pretty much* the right colour! There seems to be alot of inconsistencies in the colour of his skin (ranging from really pale, to quite a dark, merky green) - so the fabric I've got will do!! After having cut some diamonds out and tested it on a glove, i am content with it :)
ALSO bought a new metre of red fabric for my cape - thicker cotton; because the thin polycotton I bought originally is just way too thin - and since I need to glue yellow diamonds to it... the glue would just go straight through and stain the material... ¬_¬
9th January 2012: Progress Report: Cape is going well, and is well on the way to being finished, bought lots of yellow fabric paint today, so I can get started on the yellow diamonds. Also, received my white morphsuit today and purchased some blackout contact lenses for the dark, sexy eyes :D
6th January 2012: THE CAPEEEEE The cape has been cut out.. I love it. I have also made a cape-hood. Basically made from chicken-wire, which was shaped into the right(ish) shape, covered with loads of duct tape to make it all secure, then covered with red fabric. Progress is going pretty well, next step is to paint on the yellow diamonds!
26th December 2011: ordered... white zentai
29th November 2011: Wig Wig has been purchased - it's longer than necessary, so that it gives me room to cut it to the right shape and style :)

yami-no-neko - 29th December 2011
make up looking good XD. This guy really creeps me out, but still it will be fun to see it complete.
Plasticsharkattack - 29th December 2011
Thanks guys! It was so hard to mix the make-up to get it to that colour and I'm still not too happy with it - still seems a bit too green-y!
But I am really looking forward to doing this one.

Kacela - 26th February 2012
This is awesome! Great job =D
yami-no-neko - 26th February 2012
XD still looks awesome, regardless of the mirror error. ( I've been there before I ended up just flipping the photos XP) It takes a lot of effort to do a costume like this, and it shows that you have put a lot of time and effort into it. Really cool. Great job
LinkyLex - 27th February 2012
AHHHH it's finished!
& it's soooooo amazing. You did a really good job!
Ranma1-2 - 27th February 2012

Harajuku-Guy - 27th February 2012
