Moritaka Mashiro
Bakuman

Cosplayer: Tsuchinoko

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

7th February 2013: Wig Arrived The wig arrived much earlier than expected so I'm now pretty much good to go =)
I could still do with getting some white trainers but as I have a lot of other expenses to deal with before Minami I'll most likely wear the sneakers from my Kyo Sohma cosplay for the moment ( I imagine I'll be at a desk where you can't see my feet for most pictures, anyway ). I'm really happy with the blue highlights on the wig, so looking forward to cosplaying as him now ^^

29th January 2013: Sourced & Ordered Wig I've now found and ordered a suitable wig. It was actually easy to find one with a good style for him as there were many, though his hair colour is kind of unusual. The manga and anime gives the impression that it's dark with the colour of the highlights suggesting it's actually a dark shade of blue. While in many of the colour illustrations it's shown as a much lighter, warm blue.

The wig I chose is actually black with light blue highlights which looks much like the effect in the anime, so I have my fingers crossed that it will look just as effective as it did in the seller's photo when it arrives.

The ETA was given as between 13th Feb - 1st March, so it's possible that I might wear him to Minami 2013. I still don't have my cosplay plans set in stone for that event so we shall see...

28th November 2012: Sourced & Bought Stripey Top I found a suitable navy and white top for just £4.
Since they were cheap I bought 2 of them just to be on the safe side.

Oooh yay Moritaka! I know what you mean I actually prefer Akito too but I don't have anything against Moritaka as such - this will be a comfy cosplay to wear! :D

Yeah, it's always good to have a comfy cosplay and it's one I could wear on the train too which is always useful ( just put the wig on when I get to whichever event I'm wearing him to ) ^^

lol Nah, I know what you mean. It can get confusing with them having their real names, a pen-name and Akito's nickname X3

Thankies, I'm glad that you liked it =)
