White Leviathan
Progress

I first cosplayed at the London MCM Expo in 2006, and ever since then I have had the cosplay bug! My uncle is to "blame" for my love of video games and anime, ever since he introduced me to Final Fantasy back in the 90s.

As you can probably see from my profile, I like to cosplay "bish" characters. Anything from Castlevania, Final Fantasy (before it got rubbish) and of course Dynasty Warriors will always interest me.

I started out cosplaying whilst at college, and from 2008-2009 cosplayed with koei, (creators of Dynasty Wariors), and promoted their characters at the London MCM Expo and Paris Japan Expo events.

Now I cosplay for fun and to meet new people, I no longer cosplay competitively but love entering masquerades, any excuse to show off!

I present the ECG and WCS qualifiers at the Hyper Japan events, a great chance to meet more cosplayers from around the world. Hopefully I will meet many more great people at events in the future!

All armour cut out and shaped, currently backing it and treating for spraying. Tassle on spear done, that'll be my main task for this weekend. Under clothes done. Lots of odds and ends to do, I imagine this will go to the wire again!

My progress is being hampered by Dynasty Warriors 7... My time spent playing it for "research" is far out-weighing the making time...

Still picking up bits and pieces, studs and buttons are now sorted.

Still need a few major things, such as the boots, they are a total nightmare, any suggestions welcome! I need some gold fabric too, probably looking at a decent satin (oxymoron). Wig should be sorted soon, one of the next things to think about is make up... and and starting! It's all together in my head now though, not so scary anymore!

Managed to pick up the material for the Jacket and cape, so far spent £85... this isn't going to be cheap.

I've had to knock off Cid to do this one, so I better get it right! Going to get some materials this weeekend. I'm torn between a nice suiting material and a subtle velvet for the jacket. I feel that Velvet could look tacky if I am not careful. The frogging doesn't look too fun either. For the boots I'm thinking of "cowboy" style boots and then making covers. Those silver buckles down the middle look like those "skater" belt buckles don't you think?

Haven't really thought too much about the sword apart from using plywood as usual. Get to use my new airbrush on it!

Finally have the body of it finished.... just needs spraying and dry brushing, will get pics up as soon as I can be bothered to upload them

I have used a material called "Photo Tray" for this. My step mother suggested I give it a try as she uses it at work as a dentist. It only sets in daylight, it is totally amazing!
