Costume Information

Cost : £8.84

Well strictly speaking i've cosplayed Shinji before, but that was 8 years ago, and i've learned a lot more about cosplaying since then.

Presides this makes up a bit for not doing Gendo for a 3rd Minami Con running.

Update 23/03/09:
Well my friend Harriet is making me the neural receptor hair clips;though i may still invest in the neural receptor hair clips i've previously seen on HLJ.

Chris, you were saying in your journal entry about the red trim, etc.

You could use electrical tape - it'll stick on, cuts to shape easily enough, and isn't permanent. Comes in the colours you need too.

Trainers Are Done (Posted 23rd March 2009)

Well i painted the star inside a pale blue circle pattern onto the trainers (though i had a cock-up along the way).

Anyway here it is; the Sistine Chapel it ain't, but it'll serve my purposes.
you can also see in this photo my test to see how well covering the red banding round the edges with white tape. I'll do a better job of the tape in time for the convention.

Costume essentials (Posted 11th February 2009)

Well i picked up the bits needed to get today in Primark, for the princely sum of £6.85.

So that's the pale blue t-shirt and a pair of white canvas trainers.
The trainers have a red trim to them (meh ¬_¬) but at least that's a closer match than me just wearing my Doc Martins. I might even try and paint on the blue circles with the yellow stars onto them.
