Umi Ryuzaki (Anime version of the amor) - Magic knight Rayearth




Well this is an Ambition I wanna do, apparently I always loved the anime and Manga and since I crossplay, i thought I shuold go ahead and Do this character since I know for sure that I'll do well with it^__^

I dunno which even I'll be doing this one at but once it's complete, I'll work on the next event coming when it's finished, hopefully my Friend Strawberry (Ichigo-Chan) will be upto the challenge in Doing Hikaru in the Armor^__^

I might have the costume ready for 2010 but I will be doing this one though lol

and I know what your thinking abuot the crotch area, I'll be adding an additional skirt so it won't be shown lol, I am sooooo cool and slick lol

oh and the reason why i put it up for 2010 because I'll be taking my sweet time with it as unlike the Yuko costume which i brought off ebay, I'll be making that costume and I already have a good idea on how to make the shuolder pads and headband ect^__^

UPDATE - I started on making the prototypes on the shuolder pads, i'll be using foam and hopefully won't choke lol I also started on the headband aswell but will be needing to find jewel like objects whichn is hard to find in the area I live in.

I also brought a few pieces off ebay for the basic stuff like the gloves and Leotard for the inside and the headband to work on ect^_^

UPDATE - well I'm done with the shoulder pads and headband, I am very well pleased with them, Gawd Foam is great stuff^__^

UPDATE - Well I got my Wig which is very good indeed and not only that but I also got my costume off Ebay, very good aswell and am very pleased with it, all I need to get it white boots and it is complete^__^

I'll post up pictures of the finished result as soon as I have everything complete^__^

UPDATE - boots have arrived, I got no time to take a picture of me in the full costume so I'll upload pictures of the full costume after expo^_^

Do you have a Fuu? I have no plans for October and have been thinking about doing another Fuu. You can borrow the Umi sword I made if you like =D

Awesome then it looks like we have a full trio perhaps :3 If Hikaru needs a sword she can borrow mine too. Or if things fall through etc XD

How come you added the skirt? (Just thinking Bunny Haruihi looked ok below - so I know you can do it)

"Well with Bunny Haruhi, I didn't need to worry about the crotch area since that was a youtube exclusive costume lol, but with me adding the skirt to Umi, I thought I would get alot of people asking about the crotch area and I kinda predicted that one of my friends will be a douchbag with his girlfriend like last time so I had to prepear for the worst, if he were to have sex in the hotel room while we all tried to sleep (Which he did) I would be too tired to wake up really early to prepear so I added the skirt to the costume." Yeah thats true..people don't realise how much preperation goes into crossplay sometimes. tbh I find cosplayers are quite courteous and don't ask how it's done. They're just amazed how successfull it looks. Unlike your friends..@_@ can't they like, wait, till you're out. :S Maybe it's a generation thing..but I think I'd want to leave the room to let them get on with it. ..actually I'd probably look to share with someone different - someone with a lil more consideration..

"yeah thats the thing, they did it without asking us to leave the room so for May next year, I'm probobly gonna shair a room with someone else" I heard that Hotels are already booked up for May expo cuz of a huge doctors convention at the same time! >.< I hope this doesn't ruin May Expo, if people can't find hotels to stay in..
