The amour is looking great. I can't wait to see this cosplay in real life at the AmeCon, I have always wanted to see a Black Rose cosplayer.
Mtani - 7th July 2008
Thank you everyone! :D I just hope I can do it justice XD It's far from done yet, but I've painted the gold parts, and it already looks a lot better! :D

timpey - 13th August 2008
i think i saw you at amecon, awesome cosplay and really well done ^^
ryaoki - 18th August 2008
this was awsome beate well done, HOW HOW DID YOU MAKE THE ARMOUR TO SHINY AND HARD
Mtani - 18th August 2008
Inside I glued fabric to the fun foam (so the foam couldn't be ripped apart), on the outside there's layers and layers and layers, and some more layers of a water/PVA-glue mix. Then there's metallic paint on top of that ^_^

this cosplay is awsome, your armour looks brilliant, and I like your sword
MangaChild - 19th August 2008
IM SO HAPPY I GOT TO SEE THIS IN PERSON!!!
This is a fantastic costume your nuts to say parts of the sword are in accurate as its spot on XD
The Armour looks Great as well i cant understand how you get it to hold its curved shape?
I did get some photos if you want i can send them to you
I cant wait to see what you come up with next
Mtani - 20th August 2008
Aww, I'm so happy to hear that! =D But yes, that sword still need some improvements.. It was kind of made in a rush right before the con ^_^'
Hehe, fab/fun foam holds it shape surprisingly well after having been heated up and shaped. The hip bits flattened out a bit, but once I wore them the belt kept them in shape. But the elbow bits, didn't change their shape at all! Fun foam is my friend! XD
Would LOVE to see those photos! =D
*lol* I actually don't know what my next big project will be (save for Asta from Trinity Blood, artbook version).. I'm currently searching for something out of the ordinary, that will challenge me at the same time.. Any suggestions? XD
Tak - 21st August 2008
Incredibly nice costume, the construction is lovely and the wig absolutely perfect. <3 <3
Adamoluna - 9th October 2008
wheeeeee, fantastic costume, as usual :3
I wonder though, how did you make your skin so dark?
as far as I know, you're quite pale, arent you?
Mtani - 10th October 2008
*lol* I am pale! Even after a warm summer I don't get as tanned as people normally do. But I actually didn't do anything with my skin for this cosplay, as I was too poor to start buying fake tans and such. It just looks that way because of the magic yellow body paint XD So it's all really just an optical illusion because of the even paler yellow paint *grin*
ryaoki - 29th October 2008
