Akashi Seijuro (Generation of Miracles) - Kuroko no Basuke




For those who know me, it's no secret - I looove my sports anime and Kuroko is no exception! 8D Truth be told I have not watched that many but for all the ones I have, I've thoroughly enjoyed them all :3 From one of my childhood favourites Captain Tsubasa to Prince of Tennis to Whistle! it was no surprised that I would adore this series too since Street-angel and Kairu were talking about it and well... got me into it XD

However unlike all my other cosplays (except Yuki), this one will be completely commisioned as I don't have a lot of time on my hands atm and sports cosplay tend to look deceivingly simple to make when in reality, they're bloody tedious cos of the amount of panels and embroidery/applique work put into them. I just didn't fancy altering a base pattern into several pieces cos I really suck at making patterns OTL

Hopefully the cosplay can get here on time cos I'm looking forward to doing a Kuroko group :3 If it's not, then there's plenty of other chances to do photoshoots ^^

@ Samanthakaiba - Thank you so much <3 That wig got a bit flattened when I packed it OTL Street-angel has great angle awareness :3 @ WhiteWrath - Thank you! I wasn't sure whether I would cos it's a guy cosplay ^^; @ Kairu - Me neither <3 It'll be epic!! Now stoop you ridiculously tall person =b @ Tsuchinoko - OMG you really should watch it if you love sports anime!! it's so awesome <3 And thank street-angel for the shots :D @ street-angel - if u deport me back to China I could find a factory for them to make it XD

Wig complete

The only thing I had to really do was style the wig. I didn't wanna get a wig that would break the bank for him ^^; so I found one which could work as a base wig for Akashi (instead of a wig that sellers tag with the characters name in it cos it's extortionate!) and it only cost something just over £13 (which I think is decent compared to a short red wig which can cost £20 O_O)

Of course as it's a base wig (with a gorgeous shade of red) it meant I would have to hack it myself ^^;; When it came to me it was quite long for Akashi's as his hair is fairly short. I think I cut a but too much of the front fringe but it'll pass :3
