plan ahead when tearing up the bottom!
i've been through a ton of fabric when tearing capes hasn't gone well
always cut upward and stay away from the sidesa is all i can say XD

i've never actually seen gurren langan but this outfit is bloody brilliant!

GAINAX avatar

GAINAX - 9th May 2009
Thanks for the pro tip :D I shall keep it in mind! Got to paint the flames first though!

And you really should watch Gurren Lagann ;3

Thanks all for the positive comments <3

this looks fucking ace buddy, shit man cant believe you painted it haha im to nervous to paint my simon insignia incase i bugger up

GAINAX avatar

GAINAX - 11th May 2009
Haha, I was nervous too at first, but it was pretty easy! What I did was print off a template on A2 paper and draw around it with pen onto the fabric. From then on it was just a matter of painting within the lines and making sure not to go over :P

The flames are the real bitch XD

PinkCharlieBear - 11th May 2009
You're cape looks fantastic now, I really want it XD

XD Yeah I mean Aya. I always get the names the wrong way around! I'll have Simon done for Aya! Any plans on which day you're going to wear this?

GAINAX avatar

GAINAX - 18th May 2009
Depends whether or not I finish my Sheik cosplay... If I'm successful, I'll probably do him for the Friday and Saturday morning! *Still needs to sort out his registration! D:*

Yuka avatar

Yuka - 18th May 2009
I think the Gurren Lagann group is going to be on the Sunday :O Are you doing Shiek for a group? Looking forward to seeing that :D <3

goodbyeworld avatar

goodbyeworld - 18th May 2009
That SUCKS about the wig. That seller sent me the wrong one too ^^' I've known coloured spray to work on wigs.. or maybe ask around to see if there's anyone you can borrow from?

GAINAX avatar

GAINAX - 18th May 2009
I've not had had any luck so far, but I've still got a few people to ask ;p

What wig did they mess up for you? I see you have your Simon one at least :D

goodbyeworld avatar

goodbyeworld - 18th May 2009
The sent me the wrong bleach wigs, and they sent me a wig matted beyond repair D8 BAD FEEDBACK! D8<
If that all fails, try a party shop of something. Their wigs aren't amazing quality but it should do.

Odd-One-Out - 26th May 2009

Fight the Powah! You did it! The battle damage on the cape is great, I wouldn't have thought of doing it that way :D

Well that really did turn out really well mike. :D

Any chance you'll be wearing it again?
As i'm hoping to make it to the October Expo (money permitting) with my Simon cosplay.... failing that there's always Minami.

Awesome Kamina at Aya man, I don't think anyone could've done the costume and the voices as well as you man.

I still think you're one of the best Kamina cosplayers out there; the outfit is awesome, and you have the right build and expressions for him :D
(and i'm glad you like the photos I took! <3)
