Simon (Commander-in-Chief ) - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann


Originally worn for a TokyoPop REcon in Plymouth; i never finished it to a standard i was happy with.

This is second character from Gurren Lagann i've cosplayed.

I'm gonna try and see if i can make this one from scratch and do most of sewing myself (with a little help from Defrain).

13/05/09: bought some stuff to go towards this cosplay today.
Thought i'd tease you all by letting you know it's a Gurren Lagann cosplay (question is which character? :P).

19/05/09: bought some trousers from a surplus military shop down the road from me today for £6.99. They'll need taking up a bit, but since i need to modify them anyway, that's not a big issue. Also i can tell you it's not Rossiu.

02/06/09: ordered the wig off ebay.

30/06/09: finished the shirt the other day, now with just over a week to go i need to really press on with the trousers and he spats.

Ready for Minami Con 16

Well it's done (and just in time). Didn't get the jacket done, but i plan to re-wear this at Ame, so the jacket should be done by then. No sash either, but ass it's only ever seen with the jacket, that can also wait.

The shirt - Progress.

well i've got the stars applied to the shirt via an iron on adhesive (thanks Defrain). The pipping cored is now finished and just needs to be sewn into the collar. I've got the first of 2 epilets completed; and i have to say i'm quite happy with the way it's turned out. Not bad for someone who hasn't done a lot of sewing on a costume before.
