San (Curse mark! Maybe Blood version too) - Mononoke Hime


AyaCon 2013




Cosplaying San is so much fun that I want to do it again! And this time I want to edit as much as I can and I hope I will improve on my original costume!
Also I thought this was a good excuse to do different 'versions' of San...

I'd like to do a 'blood' version and a 'curse mark' version :) let's hope I can figure them out!! Because the curse mark version needs less made for it I'll probably go with that one first

Things I will remake:
SHOES -I threw the last ones in the bin after Amecon, I was NEVER happy with them, they didn't look enough like her shoes but because I put effort into them and I think I did a good job sewing them I worn them to 3cons just to get use out of them.

MASK -although I really like my first mask it was made with paper mache and I'd like to try and remake it with different materials, I'd also like to try and attach it to the hood better this time!

CLOAK AND HOOD -these looked fine but I gave my cloak away (to a good cause) so I'd love to re-make it for the 'blood' version :)

ARM BANDS AND HEAD BAND -I wasn't that impressed with my first ones and they kept breaking too! I made them in a rush and I'd like to re-make them!

Worn at various events including LFCC'13

WHITE TOP -I just don't like it enough!

NECKLACE(S) -one I havent't made yet at all and need to make (Ashitaka's necklace) and one needs to be re-made (spikey one)

WEAPON -My original weapon got damaged during a move and since I move house every 6 months I got sick of carrying it around so I broke it up and threw it out. Next time I will make her hand weapon.

WIG!!!!! -this was my main issue (along with the shoes) about the first costume, hence why I didn't even wear my wig at Amecon. I cut my wig too short for MCM Telford 2012 and there's nothing you can do about a short wig once you've cut it :P.

There are a mixture of some from Ame and CICAE/Cospay cafe here I opened up a second Mononoke costume on here because my pics are full on the other one and I want to do a 'blood' version and a 'curse mark' version at some point :P

Ayacon curse mark attempt 2

So after a lot of editing etc took this costume to Ayacon, I tried the curse mark version and it went ok, but it needs to be worked on!
I was going to try the 'blood' version too but got locked out of the room with the blood in it for my photoshoot, so I have regular San photos to upload instead :P

Photo shoot!

Although this isn't finished I decided to take a along some parts of my old costume and a couple of re-made things to a photo shoot the other day! It was a for Uni student's project so I kinda thought, I'd just go help out, see what happens and use it as an excuse to test my body painting!!
I made my white top the night before and it wasn't that great at all :p it definitely needs to be edited!!
The body paint went fine considering it was the first day I tried it out :) but it can be done better of course!
Some parts of my costume were missing (such as a Ashitaka's necklace for my curse mark version and my cloak for my general Mononoke version-I still took my old mask and hood for the sake of it)

I re-made my shoes (as I threw my last ones out after Amecon :P) they looked nice from the side imo but not as good from the front! It's just because of the way I made them.

Starting prep for Mononoke 'curse mark'

Bought a wig, some of the 'face paint' that I hope to use to make the curse mark and shoe insoles. I did start making the shoes around working on my dissertation but I need to re-do them as I don't like the way I choose to sew various parts together :P it's fine though, I find sewing relaxing and so re-sewing something small like a shoe is kind of nice!!
I've also made a hand-weapon out of card board/wood pieces which I'll hopefully continue to work on at some point!
