Costume Information

This was a pretty early plan my Kaito roped me into, and I didn't think it would be too hard a costume to do, which it wasn't .... until I kind of had a few 'issues' with a sewing machine so it wouldn't work... at all.... then I found the wonder that is hemming tape and used that to secure my 'belts' on my shirt (that are actually just lengths of ribbon XD ) and then the cloak... well that it a masterpiece of a single piece of cloth and several safety pins and a bit of extra ribbon. It's not accurate but Michi-Agogo and I were pretty proud of our last-minute fixes ^^ *highfive*


And now this version shall be re-emerging to attend LFCC in a larger L.I.W group which I'm extremely excited about. Journal entry has more details, but watch out LFCC Masquerade, we're coming for you :D

Gakupo re-emerges!! (Posted 20th June 2012)

Well happily myself, Michi-Agogo (DeviantArt), Nightshadowfall (DeviantArt) and ballerinamouse (DeviantArt) shall be invading the LFCC masquerade with a big Love.Is.War group of Gakupo, Kaito, Len and Meiko. I think we might have a Miku but I'm not certain yet.

So yeah, now I can happily re-edge my ribbon-belts onto the shirt properly, pin and sew the cloak properly so it's just not a safetypinned piece of fabric and I've bought a black wooden Bokken so I'll be detailing that with a gold dragon and re-wrapping the handle in purple.
Making a belt to hold it more securely and I've got my sword-case made already.

Bring it on LFCC, throw your worst hiccups at me!!

And so after Midlands~ (Posted 5th March 2012)

I was so happy with how it turned out, a bit annoyed I couldn't sew all my details on personally, but there's always time to re-do things.

And I utterly adore the purple of his cape ^^
