Major Motoko Kusanagi
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

Cosplayer: Bambi.

Variant: 2nd Gig

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

25th October 2010: Painty Painty! *fail* >.< It will do! I will be bringing a normal handgun too if I can find one! as a backup *shrugs*

24th October 2010: Gun Progress Hiiiiiiii! =D
So most of Major is done now apart from some wig styling that I'll probs do at expo and the shitty leotard thing that I cant work out so I will just be pinning D:

Me and my dad have teamed up again to start work on the arsenal! 8D The base has been made out of packing foam as was cut and sanded into shape then giving a **** loada filler to give it a proper shape!

I still need to lightly sand again to smoothe it even more then I can start painting! Dunno how the HELL I'm gonna manage this in 3 nights o.o

25th September 2010: ... Yeh.... I have been daudling ALOT if I'm honest. My update does seem like I have done alot since last month but It's mainly been alot of tidying up. I have lined the leotard so its not see-through now and adjusted it for a better fit. I ahve added velcro panels to the jacket for a fastening..

I have also recoloured the wig to a purpley blue colour like I wanted.. so I'm happy. =) Thanks goes out to Aaron for that hehe =D

So yeh... not really alot to report tbh. Just need to source some gloves, etc to finish off

13th September 2010: Progess? What progress? o.0 Got some more bits and bobs and Finally have a wig.... but it came... and was completely the wrong colour so will need to recolour it D:

I need to lose a fair bitta weight before expo >.< Then focus on the leotard after Trunks is finished as this is the main thing o.0 LOL

10th August 2010: Just a quickie SPARKLES IS... AMAZING! Bargain buys for modding times for Miss Motoko =D I cut the jacket into shape and hemmed and did the same with the leotard although alot more work needs to be done to that!

I still need to sort the fastening out for the jacket but I only started this as something to do whilst waiting for Ame! Too organised ¬¬.
The gloves, I already had for Videl and the belt is Skip's old Saiyaman belt =) I bought the jeans (even though I used to have some and chucked them in the charity >.<)

Will probs carry on doing this after payday at the end of this month.

AMECON WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO <3

You realise Im stealing you, dont you O.o

Theres not much point in trying to escape just so you know, it WILL happen one way or the other so you may as well just save yourself some MAJOR wasted effort and come quietly...

This is certainly an oppitinity to GHOST those non believers IN THE community, I certainly believe you have the potentional to come out of your SHELL with this cosplay. Hope you dont mind if I STAND next to you for some photos, as well as take some ALONE pics too? Thought I had better ask as I didnt want you getting a COMPLEX about it. I mean there will certainly be lots of photos taken of you in this cosplay she is very popular so make sure you dont get 2ND thoughts. I cant imagine all the GIGs of data that will be taken up by it.

...

Looking AMAZING!

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 14th September 2010
Looking good. I love Kusanagi. :)
If you still want to boost your boobage I recommend 'chicken fillets', umm the silicone ones - not eating extra chicken portions.. :P Although... that would probs work too :D

Inuyoku avatar

Inuyoku - 14th September 2010
o.O if you needa lose weight then oh my I needa get lipo quick!!

Looks good so far :)

Bambi. avatar

Bambi. - 14th September 2010
Alyx: Thanks huni ^^
Ranma: hahaha Yeh I do need more full on boobage.. those pics show it badly xD I will invest hehe! Any recommendations? xD
Inuyoku: haha we'll get it together! 2 for 1! ;p

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 14th September 2010
Well I got the biggest size they do which turns me into a C. But I am flat to start with where as you have a good head start :P so its hard to advise.. There are the small chicken fillets which just go inside the bra sort of underneath the boobs and push your natural boobs up to increase overall appearence and cleavage - those are good genreally because you can still wear 3/4 type bra's etc without the silicone fillet being seen. So those would be suitable for low neck costumes where you want amazing natural cleavage. The other types of silicone enhancers are worn in front of your natural boobs and really boost out, but because they are essentially round cone shapes they are not suitable for open cleavage type bra's or low neckline costumes becasue the silcone breast form would be partly visible at the cleavage - But fine though if the boobs are totally covered over like eg with your Kusanagi. Also good for things like lycra body suits..the full form enhancers can really push your shappe out to comic book proportions (eg Comic book Catwoman - lycra catsuit costume).
Tale your pick. Search eBay for 'breast enhancers'
One last word of advice if you go for the full breast forms - just be on the lookout for the nipple size..otherwise you will end up needing to wear T shirt bras every time. Some of the full breast forms are made with no nipple deatail, so you can wear any bra with those.
(Oh my gosh..How is it I know so much about this stuff! This is why some of my friends say they are worried about me. :P :P :P )
Have fun! :D

Sunsetdancer avatar

Sunsetdancer - 14th September 2010
I can reccommend the fillets also... XD

Yes Im being serious, they work, Ive used them.

HOWEVER, you have to remember cosplay is about reprisenting the character, anime is made over the top to begin with, IRL she wouldnt have boobs that big, so with many cosplays I always ask myself "am I cosplaying the anime version or the character" because half the time normal people can never actually live up to the anime version of the character completely.

Personally I think you look best the way you are!

Bambi. avatar

Bambi. - 14th September 2010
I know excess boobage is required for this so I am more than willing for filletness xD haha Im not gonna go crazy Aaron dont worry =p

Thanks again Steve. I'll def look into it <3 Thankies
