Information

Igarashi Ganta, Kiyomasa Senji, Minatsuki Takami and Shiro all worn at May Expo 2011.

Ganta- Tsupo
Crow- Yukioto
Hummingbird- BernieBear
Shiro- IndecisiveTrollop

We did the shoot in the morning in a huge rush as poor Minatsuki had to leave as soon as she got there- to go to last minute Britain's got Talent Rehearsals! Crow and I hadn't styled our wigs and the blistering cold winds meant Crow didn't want to strip down until he got inside (unfortunately for me) as well as everyone having slightly pained and windswept expressions!

Prison Suit made from scratch by me. The DMW sign is appliqued on the back and front pocket. All our collars, my Ganta-gun, my chest crystal and Crow's blades were made by Yukioto (With help on the collars from Berniebear!). Both my Ganta-gun and Chest crystal had embedded LEDs which lit up red (unfortunately the crystal broke before I even got to the convention).
We've had a few comments about the collars and I agree they're not accurate at all and plan to re-make mine. My whole costume was made a week before the convention and the collars were a huge problem for us- in the end we decided to heat form plastic- discrete although not quite accurate rather than huge chunky polystyrene rings which seemed to be the only other option and didn't seem right either.

Despite everything (and missing my psychotic whore very much) I had a great time at Expo with Crow and Shiro!

Thank you! Yes, the collar is a bitch. I saw you've planned Yoh! I'd really love to see that- he's one of my favourite characters! ^o^ Just a warning- the prison suit took me a whole week to pattern, drop me a message if you want any help with it!

I can't wait to see it! 8D There might actually be a possibility of me re-wearing Ganta for Kita as I don't have time to make anything new for the con. Maybe we could organise a little shoot for the same day? I'm sure I could persuade Crow to re-wear too. (He needs to take his godamn branches of sin back anyway, they're taking up my room ;_____;) Good plan- the prison suit is suprisingly difficult to make.. >//////<
