Minato Arisato (a.k.a. the protagonist) - Persona 3




I didn't make the costume myself... I bought it off Ebay (I know, shame on me)

Again, the main effort involved in this costume are:
- finding the right wig
- styling the wig
- figure out a way to get all my long black hair underneath the wig
- hunting down the props e.g. headphones, "stick type" MP3 player etc.

UPDATED (16-03-08):
Decided to recreate the Tarot Cards in the game to be use for prop... So far have painted 5 cards:
- "0" Fool
- "III" The Empress
- "VII" The Chariot
- "XIII" Death
- "XX" Judgement

For future costumes try getting yourself a wig cap! They really help keep all your hair beneath the wig. :D Hope to see you trying your hand at making stuff! Can't wait to see! +__+

I saw you at October Expo and got all fanboyish over seeing a Protagonist/Minato cosplayer! Unfortunately the photo I took didn't really show off your costume that well, so I feel kinda bad for that. I'm having trouble finding the right kind of MP3 player, which one did you use? All in all, hope to see your costume again soon. ^^

You saw me? Wow I'm impressed... there were so many people there at the Expo on Saturday I thought I would have gone totally unnoticed ^^; I had some trouble in locating the right kind of mp3 player as well... In the end I used a Inovix IMP18D. It is not totally accurate, but that was the closest (and most affordable) option I found at the time ^^; Maybe I'll try and see if I could find something else when I go back to Hong Kong for holiday...

Nah, there are so few Persona 3 cosplayers that you left an impression on me. I can't wait to play the game. How are you making the Evoker? I'm curious.

The game is cool~ I just love the art design for this game, so stylish! Emm... For my evoker, I made the base frame out of cardboards, then slapped a bunch of mod-roc on it and on top of the mod-roc I have modelight. The problem I am encountering at the moment is that I couldn't get a nice "flat" surface... Hopefully the test I am about to do will rectify that problem ^^;

Ah, pretty cool Evoker there! And the uniform is cool, too. Luckily, I think when I get around to cosplaying Minato, he'd be a bit more well-known, since Persona 3's only getting it's UK release pretty soon. That, and I've recommended it to everyone on the con's forums XD It's a cool game, but then again, I'm a huge MegTen fanboy at heart ^^;;

Thanks for the comment on Ken~ I should be wearing him to Amecon, unless my love for Akihiko is so unstoppable that I suddenly find myself deciding to cosplay as him instead XD I love your Minato cosplay~!! Your evoker is SO impressive, I hope mine will look as good as yours *_*

TAROT CARDS ARE HERE! Your 2D skills certainly came in useful for this cosplay, eh?

Nice Evoker! When I googled to find some referance pics for mine, it took me to this page.

I remember you! You took a picture of myself (Rukia) and my friend Al (Lloyd Irving) and I was thinking whilst we were posing "Wow, she looks AWESOME!" I actually have the photo in my gallery, would you like me to credit you as the photographer? In any case (perhaps I hsould have said this sooner), your costume is incredible! I haven't played the game, but it looks good... your outfit helping me come to that conclusion. I like how natural it looks and your make up is done well too, brilliant!
