Ive gotten into cosplay around 2009 while i was still in my japanese phase......after going to expos i wondered what it would be like to cosplay and there i was being luxord was my first cosplay and went really well
now many people know me as the piplup man because of how awesome it looks =D
and its also my main cosplay that has attracted a lot of attention at events.......though most of the time when i done 1 cosplay...i want another one!! (though i think most of us are like that lol)
Even a japanese couple came up to me and asked me "wow your amazing we dont get UK cosplayers" but im like.......there are a lot more of us lol they were awesome (meaning i might started wearing cosplays in the japanese district xD) Youl probably see me going to most MCM expos and small cosplay events in london and japanese festivals
Here is what the skirt looks so far :)
Needs a little more detail but its looking so beautiful! Underneath is a layer of red silk and white cloth going down from the front......so close and so near! Just more detail, the leotard, arm cuffs and boots to go :D
Finished of my gloves as well, made a lace hole so I can put my finger through like its shown in the anime. I only took a picture of one glove atm as its difficult to take a picture on your own but they are both finished :D.
Its just those big cuffs on the top of the arm I have to do i'm dreading T_T
OK I have done a few major things but haven't had the time to update so here goes......
I have finished my Collar and scarf. Felt stuff with cotton, Velcro at the back so I take it off when I need to. Given it some detail with some white cloth that I have used from an old table cover and the scarf is just one bit of silk :3 and it feels so nice
At expo I bought the perfect contact lenses as I want to use for this cosplay to be perfect in detail :) Problem is ive never used contacts in my life so got a lot of paitence and perserverance to put up with >.<
But first il see an optition and see if im suitable for contact lenses first. I may of wasted money but its a lesson learn and handy info to pass onto people who have never done contacts in their life :) If it doesnt work out then I suppose its not the end of the world and il just learn to photoshop the eye colour into them
Well after trusting my dad to get me a red nose from work that i can colour for my mijumaru........he failed and 4got T_T so im probably gonna be noseless at amecon which is a shame as its not the same D:
Everything is almost complete, just bought the shoes today as i couldnt find any flippers in a short amount of time, its just the nose i need to do......if i can find one and hopefully it will all be complete in time for amecon woop!
Now with the tail finished its time to move onto the final piece of the togekiss project.........the crest.........im about 1/3 of the way there just the white spike and the dark blue spike to go and then presto =D
Well didn't do a lot today all I've done really is reshape the wings and crest. I tried using the fabric but is pretty difficult cos it creases n it's like grrrr oh but formed the curls that togekiss has on the bottom of it's wings so that's another bit added and fit my arm inside so yeah you could say I've done some but I wanted to at least put the fabric on one wing so I could show you all how it looks -sigh- maybe on Saturday hopefully.......
wig is now ordered hope it should b here soon
it will at least take 2-3 weeks though :( and also wish it was slightly darker, oh well people should still be able to tell who the person is so im ok with it ^^
