Definitely more fun than my previous cosplay, though I was only recognized by a few people, but I don't mind!
The blades took a beating as passers-by kicked the battery packs on the back, but they held up pretty well considering they were put together in a day. The final versions should be totally solid.
All in all lots of fun, and I've always wanted to skate about the streets like I did in JSR. Dream realized ^^">
I've decided to take the mostly-finished cosplay to Manchester MCM this weekend, so I threw everything together quickly. Thus the crappy paintjob.
I added a spike to the back, but I found that it limits how much you can move when skating and is prone to being hit on the ground or broken off.
The battery pack is 3d printed and screwed on to the blades. They're super strong (I can actually hold the whole boot up holding just the battery pack. I achieved the cartoony look from the game by using extremely bright matt-paper with a high definition printed.
I'll be re-doing these for October's convention, but they should be good enough to be recognized at Manchester =]">
I love you too ^^
I'll be there all 3 days so you'll be pretty unlucky if you miss me.
Although if you're taking that Amnesia cosplay there I'll probably be staying faaar away from you, that things way too creepy xD

I can't imagine anything scarier than being hunted down by a gatherer o-o;
Definitely a compliment, can't wait to see the finished thing =)

Thanks a lot =]
The skates aren't in the best condition right now, so you might as well try while they're having doubts about their looks =P
