Okita Sougo
Gintama

Cosplayer: BB Dubs

Variant: Shinsengumi, Silver

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

27th October 2010: Wootie hoot I've completed my outfit and the props, yey!

I have yet to buy the eye mask Sougo usually wears while he's sleeping, but that's just an add-on accessory.

23rd October 2010: @_@ I won't be having the complete bazooka with all those extra bits on, I just can't be asked. The main things for the bazooka is the trigger, handle and zoom whatevers...

The sword I made is beyond bendy so I can't make a scabbard for it >.< What I'll do is use cloth as a scabbard.

Unfortunately, I can't get my prescription contacts in time as I will need an eye test FOR contacts but not for glasses and contacts D: So I'll be walking around in red non-prescription contacts and a new pair of glasses...Win?

22nd October 2010: One week left Almost got the sword completed! The handle is a bit rubbish, but I'll cover that with the ribbon.

The gun for the bazooka is in place and is very sturdy thanks to the silicon =D, I just need to stick a handle and other bits on.

Believe it!!!

16th October 2010: Balsa sword :3 I bought a PVA glue for the bazooka = not great.
I bought a sealant for the bazooka = not great, because I can't get it to work.

Frustrated from getting the wrong things, I started with cutting the katana out of balsa wood and accidently cut off the handle >.< I didn't bother drawing Sougo's sword guard in detail though D:

All I need to do is shape the sword handles and then spraypaint =D

12th October 2010: Cut cut cut! I created a hole in the tube by cutting it with a craftknife, got to love that craftknife of mine xD I also chopped the gun in half and keeping the motor inside. It's a bit of a hassle to adjust the hole size so the handle can go in.

I figured the hot glue gun won't do the work, my brother advised me to buy some window sealer to seal the hole =) I'll be buying that later this week.

9th October 2010: Full jacket completed Completed sewing the jacket thanks to mother. It was my job to sew on the buttons...but where were they?! Searched high and low in the places where it could be. Luckily I found them just before my mum tried to go out and get some new buttons. Phew!

I also bought a toy gun =3 I'll cut it up and stick it onto the poster tube. Yey.

1st October 2010: Bazooka! The coat and inside waist coat is way under way to completion.

I bought a bazooka base! xD It's a poster tube I bought from an art shop in town. It was the right size plus the tube can extend from 63cm to just over a metre. Woot.
It is quite hard to figure out to add things onto the plastic tube. I don't think my awesome little glue gun can do the job =/ *takes out electric drill*

19th September 2010: Started Just getting started with the outer part of the costume. Just using the same coat pattern I used for Rhys. The fabric I got was poly gab instead of the pleather I originally wanted to use.
