Gourry Gabriev (Season 1) - The Slayers




One of my favourite ever Anime characters, probably because I'm a big, blond, dumb swordman too!

I originally made a Gourry costume for Minami 2004 (I think) but he was rushed and the armour was a little ill fitting so I was never really happy with it.
To celebrate the Revival of Slayers, Wessex decided to do a group so I had the perfect opportunity to remake him, This time with my Girlfriend Lunar_kitten as an excelent Lina Inverse.

Much happier with how the costume came out this time, It's surprisingly difficult to get a simple looking costume like Gourry's to look right! theres nothing to distract the eye if the armour doesnt sit right etc.

Miiol helped restyle my Epic ass length wig and I got to make a Sword of Light (though not in shiny magical light form...yet)
Completely failed to make the gloves properly so theres some extra work needed there and the trousers area little on the tight side now but this costume should see some more action methinks.

I'm glad I decided that I wanted to cosplay Lina Inverse (and that Wessex helped by creating a skit around it). It was fun - and not just the parts where I had to hit you with a giant inflatable banana! :-p Thanks for being my sidekick - you made a wonderful Gourry :-)
