View Full Version : Malice Mizer - Kami
05-21-2003, 11:04 PM
I really really want to do a Kami outfit but... *eeps* there are so many! Eventually I want to do them all... but that's a long ways off^_^
Based on my pictures in my gallery, does anyone have some suggestions?

Considering makeup is a large part of J-rock cosplay, what you look like doesn't matter. ^_^; Pick one that you like the best or could complete quickest/easiest, and start with it.
eee....you sound like me ^_^ a kindred Kami spirit...
Quickest/easiest?...pah, go hardcore and do a complicated one first...demonstrate your dedicated love... ^o^
Let's see, I'd say first consideration is decide whether you want to dye your hair red for real or invest in a nice Kami-ish wig. Based on the length for either, that'll narrow your choices about in half (...unless you wanna do one of the rare occurances where he's wearing a wig....pssst, if you can pull it off in time for AX, maybe try Le Ciel? That'd make a Kozi out there really happy. ^_-) Yeah, if you are indeed crazy like me and wanting to do them all eventually, investigate if any MM groups are forming and jump in with them.

Michi: Maybe it's just mi, but Kami doesn't wear all that much make-up.
Yui: I would do Le Ciel and make a certain someone very happy, but I'm not sure if I'll make it.
Michi&Yui: I'd like to use my own hair, which I'd dye to the correct shade (I had it that colour when I did Asuka, but I'm not sure if you can see in the pictures I have up so far). I should have specified that, but then, eventually I will do all of the Kami outfits...
as far as skill goes, I'm pretty confident in my skills. <sweatdrop> The problem as I said before is making up my mind.

I know he doesn't wear much makeup. I've cosplayed Kami before. ^_^; Kami and Gackt wear the least makeup of the group. But there are the cases of images like Illuminati, Le ciel, and Merveilles where Kami has a good deal of it on. :p
How long is your hair? Do you want to be very specific? Because Kami cut his hair halfway through Malice Mizer.. so earlier outfits like Au Revoir have longer hair than ones like Illuminati. @_x

... I'm a Jrock fanatic^_^ I know about the hair... obvisously.... and a bunch o' other junk.
My hair is aprox. three feet, I'd like to be really specific, my real thing is that I just don't care for wigs, so I wanna do the natural ones first.

Three feet? My length, then. ^_^ Do you want something intricate? Verte Aile/Bel Air maybe.. His oldschool Voyage album outfits are pretty cool.. *attaches image*

Oooh that one! Somehow I'd forgotten about that one.... that's a good suggestion, thank you!
05-22-2003, 11:21 AM
Hee, you're welcome. ^^ Yay for Kami~!
05-22-2003, 11:31 AM
*cries* by the time I got into Jrock, he was already dead.... Waa~
Expect pertiful Kaminess coming soon-ish (after the "Fanime rush"), and I'll expect lots of comments as I post progress pictures^_^
05-22-2003, 11:42 AM
Awesome! I definitely want to see progress!!
Yeah, I got into Jrock a year late to really 'experience' Kami. ~_~

um... just what is he holding in that pic? Anyone have a close up?
05-22-2003, 12:33 PM
I'm rather sure it's a mask.. I can try to hunt down a closeup, though.
05-22-2003, 12:37 PM
*squints* I guess it maybe a mask... I'm trying to hunt down pictures now, but if you have some please send 'em over^_^
oh yeah, it's a cool lil' half-mask....um, that's the only pic of it that I think I can think of at the moment tho...as far as the normal sources. Maybe you can find it in some obscure magazine - like I found his Merveilles mask in this random mook and everyone was like "What's that?" when I was carrying it around. So I guess that means that if you can't find better refs, you get to make up the details, cuz no one will really know either way. ^_-
If you're in the New York area, please join me at BAAF as Le Ciel Kami! our Kami dropped out due to some other forces, and it'd be spiffy to have you with us for photos! :;3

<sweatdrop> Um, try the other coast. How about y'all just come and join mi since the rest of my group um... never existed^_^

i think Kamis hair may have been about 3 ft or near his knees anyway shade wise he had it dark a rich brown colour then a firey red then back to dark when he got it cut but his hair was still long just past his shoulders in photo shoots he wore pale lipstick but keept his look very natrual but in Le Ciiel he wore a truck load of make up as his face was painted white its sad he died i heard he was the sweetest kindest person you could hope to meet and he had a heart of the purest gold RIP Kami
