Ayacon 2011

28th August 2011: ayacon 2011 I wore this cosplay again for ayacon. Made some improvements to the sword, it's now the awakened version (well it has an open crossguard now, but the skull mouths remain closed).
I'll put in some photos soon.

11th August 2010: Planning stage So far, Ive only bought the wig for this cosplay (which has yet to arrive, but should look cool - image below)

Im currently deciding what colours to use. If you notice from my cartoon reference, the entire costume is one tone of colour, but if you look at the CG references, the coat is a burgundy, and the waistcoat and trousers are a lighter shade similar to red.
I think Ive decided to go for the varying colours version. It adds a bit of contrast to the costume and I think itll be better.

I will be commissioning Tab to make the trenchcoat for me (I dont have the time to make one myself in time for expo, and plus this way Im sure itll look super) and I will contruct the rest myself, including the making of the Rebellion sword out of wood. Which is something I promised myself I wouldnt do again, after the hefty task it was to make my D sword. However, this time I have power tools to help me get through that, so hopefully itll turn out OK.
