Attention any and all dot hack cosplayers!

I'm finally getting a start on Alkaid (a year after I posted this originally, well, almost a year), so who is with me for DOT HACKERS UNITE(-ing)!? WOO!

Come join us, fellow people. I want some dot hack friends XD Lots of the costumes are pretty hard and there wasn't a thread originally so I thought I'd make this here :3 One of these days Imma make a Kite and Haseo's Xth form buuut yeah. One costume at a time..

(SO YEAH I EDITED THIS. MY FIRST POST WAS NOOB AND LAME ANYWAY >_>)

.hack forever!!

I finished my Xth form, well eveything but the gloves and those circle things on his back. I wonder why he needs those...hmm.. anyway.

Your making an alkaid? sweet, Her outfit is very cute, I recommend maybe foam or something for the fan on the back, i used foam for that Xth windmill and surprisingly it succeeded. yeah.

you must do kite! Kite is a must for .hackers, we need Kite! He's our hero.

Good idea for foam for her fan..

I love Kite XD Did you happen to collect Tabby and Natsume yet? (and get to do weddings with the girls, best friend events with the boys?)
Kite's event is hilarious..

Good luck on your Alkaid cosplay, I bet that'll be really cute. <3

Sometime next year, I'm planning on being Roots version of Shino. I love that girl so much... next to Haseo, she's my favorite character. Along with Shino, I'm making an Ovan cosplay for my boyfriend. He's not much taller than I am so I'm going to try to talk him into wearing platform shoes. XD I'm actually really looking forward to making the arm... I have a few really good ideas of how I'm going to do it.

I'm edventually going to finish Haseo's Second form, for awhile there he was majorly important for me to make but I'm more intrested in makeing other costumes right now...

I did make part of his armor but I found a better, lighter, and more detailistic (a word??) way of makeing it. So I'll probably remake them. But agian I'll only finish it if I push myself to. Marching Band has been eating up my hours of free time and I only have time for so many costumes .... sad really.....

An Alkaid would be really cool! :] And Kite too.
I love Shino so much! I want to eventually cosplay her white one too eventually. ^^

Good luck with all your cosplays! Oog, I'm so excited there's other dot hacker cosplayers >3> I feel like I'm in a small group XD I'd love to try Shino sometime; I like her and Atoli's hat~ it would be like I'm wearing a little pillow on my head with a tassel

I'm making Keyaki/Zelkova. :)
So far, I have the sash half-drawn, a tunic partially made and the base for that thing on his back.

I have wood for his shoes but don't know how to cut them? Anyone have any suggestions (for his shoes)?

=D Hooray for .hack!

I've cosplayed the purple roots version of Shino, and I'm making Atoli for a friend. We're also making Melo grunty and... that Ovan grunty for when we cosplay together.

I'm also thinking of doing Sora sometime.

*off-topic 8D* oh my god, you've cosplayed Izuru! I love you xD

sweet_magic
09-28-2007, 12:43 PM
I was thinking about making a ".hack//series cosplay" thread, but I guess there's no need for one if everyone just replies here about any .hack related cosplay. ^_^

Right now, I'm torn between starting on Atoli or Kuhn first. Kuhn's hair terrifies me in regards to wig styling so I'll most likely start on Atoli first.

Shiya: You did a wonderful job on your Shino! You have to tell me how you made your hat and weapon. x3

Shino-san FTW! I've been wanting to make one for the longest time.
I'm currently working on Natsume, but her wig kinda scares me. Anyone have a few pointers on how to make cowlicks? she has green hair with a major cowlick, sorta like ramza from FFT.
oh yeah and anyone remember hetero? I swear, I wish he would have had more screen time. He's so darn cool! I'm thinking on making a hetero for katsucon or otakon.

Sora would be love, and OH MY GOD YOU ALSO COSPLAY IZURU! <333!! I might stalk you >_> we Izuru need to stick together, you know! I was the only Izuru at A-kon this year! It was so terribly sad! (AND I missed the Bleach photoshoot..)

It's a lot of fun to wear xD
Maybe use hair curlers near the roots? But I guess that would be more for smaller cowlicks... something like that though.

We really do xD. At least you can feel special to be the only one, but it's always sad to be all alone D:

I'm working on a Haseo 1st form cosplay myself and I'm also planning to do Hiiragi! Not to mention Mistral and Atoli. .hack is just made of so much win. XD Anyone who cosplays it is my best friend for life. XD

A 1st form Haseo cosplayer. YAY! ^__^ Most people do his 2nd form, but personally I like his 1st form the best (More skin= smexy). If I wasn't so busy with all my other cosplays I'd probably add Silabus to my every growing list since he's one of my favorite characters.

^^ .hack is awesome! My friends and I just went to a convention as Kuhn [Myself] Haseo, Sora and Shino. It was great fun!

I have started my Endrance costume for an upcoming convention and next year I will be going to be making Haseo [first form] along with my friends as the rest of the Twilight Brigade.

I would love to do Sakaki and Hiiragi one day ^_^ [Can you tell I like G.U. best? XD]

Yay! Poor Zelkova doesn't get enough cosplay love. (Everyone loves Haseo!)
...it maybe his shoes. Silly stilt-like geta-like sandal thingys... >.>;;

I finished drawing the design on his sash (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1283303). ^^ Now I have another sash to draw on for the flap. =0=;; *dies*

I'll be making First Form Haseo later next year. I really like all of his forms, except Third, which weirds me out for some reason. Sakubo would also be pretty fun to make, and I've thought about Atoli as well.

Shiroake
10-03-2007, 09:48 PM
Third form Haseo looks like a bug XDD Antenna hair..but I like it more than his second form. Then again, I don't use broadswords nearly as much as I use scythes >_> I love the twin blades best though..(other than the dual guns, they dont' count though!)

Ah. I would LOVE to see pics. I don't even know where to start if I did Kuhn, so that's why I am going to hold off doing him until I really feel that I'm up to the challenge.

Zelkova = win. I was thinking of doing him, but it really was the shoes that made me say no XD

I think I might be the only person who likes third form best XD;

I'm thinking of doing AIDA arm Ovan... wondering how to put the arm on though. Any ideas? duct tape it to my arm and leave a hole for it on the shirt? D:
Would it be weird since he's like, 7 feet tall and I'm 5'2"? XD

I like his third form second best (xth wins my heart for good). Oh god, AIDA Ovan would be amazing to see. Hmm..would you make it out of like foam or something? XD and nah..not too weird! AIDA arm would add some feet at least!

Gah I know, he's my favorite character XD So I'm going to work extra hard to do him justice~ I've already got my wig and hair extension, it just needs some slight styling/dying XD (the color I got was way too light... Apparently blonde looks brown to me on my computer screen XD;)

Thank you!! ^^ I love Shino soso much hehe. If things work out, I'll be wearing her this weekend. I can't wait.
I will have to PM you this little Shino hat tutorial I made as soon as I go back home. xD I've been asked so much how I've made my hat, so I made it for future ref. :33 And my staff too.
I wish my boyfriend would cosplay Xth form with me, but he's so busy with college and work now, it would be really difficult for him to. He did a 2nd form for AX, but I think it was the worst time to wear it. It was too hot. :[

sweet_magic
10-04-2007, 08:50 PM
Rei: Good luck on the wig. Silabus is my 3rd favorite character (Next to Kuhn and Haseo of course) so anyone who cosplays as him is made of awesomness. <3 Lol.

Shiya: I'm looking forward to recieving your PM about the staff and hat. ^_^ Aw, I'm sorry your BF won't be able to do Xth form. I would have liked to see pictures.

Ugh tell me about it, After several attempts to get the shape of Kuhn's hair without adding weight I've pretty much failed. My next attempt will be to make a hollow skeleton of the ponytail and somehow cover it with the wig.

..Still an ongoing process...

I believe it was from cosworx but I really done remember. I made Kuhn a little over a year ago and the wig came a few month before that.

@Shiroake: yes... Haseo is a pimp. He is stronger than Axe fragrance... >.>;;

@Turtleen: Be Zelkova too... please? *sniff/big watery eyes* Though I've found him to be more complicated than first sight... *sigh* OoOoo... AIDA arm... you should totally go for it!

@rei: omg Silabus... I love that boy! I can't wait to see you!

@Scoti - I really like your Kuhn... as far as ponytail goes, have you considered looking at the FF12 Fran ponytails? I've seen some tutorials (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1097788)and I think they have similar cone-shaped ponytails...

Shiroake

I agree! Even the boys love him! Especially Endrance (I'm surprised he hasn't molested Haseo by the end of the game...but the marriage event is utterly hilarious I've heard.)

Oh, it is. I watched it in my file. Oh goood. 8D

*ahem* Back on the cosplay topic, hi! I was Bo at this past Otakon, and I'm trying for Xth form Haseo this year. My #1, "BUH?!" right now is the coatrack. =<

Shiroake
10-07-2007, 07:33 PM

Meaka, I missed your Bo at otakon :(

Did you see Piros the thirds?! that one was hilarious!!!
Azure kite was my second favorite and of course the epic endrance wedding.
I mazed out endrances' affection guage JUST to see that. I made my brother watch it. because he likes haseo, but can't stand the thought of him being well. *ahem* meh heh heh! *evil laugh*

Anyway, Hey guys I was thinking about making a Bo. But i need help with his hat? does anyone have any suggestions?
Also, I made a XTH form, but i need help for his guns >.<

Anyway, are your name sounds familiar =O Are you ccmeaka on the livejournal community Apkallu? I'm on there too XD (though I haven't posted in AGES x__x)

Meaka
10-08-2007, 09:09 PM
@Ishotxemnas- ;_; I missed you, too! Your costume was looking so badass!

As for Bo's hat, um... 8D; Don't try to do it by eye. Make your own little pattern for it.

@rei-chaka- <3 Yup, that's me! *wave*

Aha, luckily, I had money set aside for Vol. 3 way before it came out, so it didn't need to suffer the wait because of my cosplaying.

I think EVERYONE wants to do an Xth form at some point XD It's just so... convincing XD I was thinking about it too for a while, but my friend is doing it so... Oh well XD I already have too many costumes to do anyway~

Turtleen
10-10-2007, 09:09 PM
I had money set aside for vol. 3 too, but I sprained my wrist and it hurts too much to play it XD. And my tv messes up game colours so the whole first scene was completely white with some black lines. Thinking about the colours, does Atoli have a different colour for the pleats on her sleeves? (compared to the rest of the sleeve)

xth form is just a must for anyone who's seen it, but it seems like everyone is thinking of it xD. It's also a good alternative for people who want to do Haseo but don't want the open stomach. And, it's glowy. Who wouldn't want to make something glowy?!

sweet_magic
10-10-2007, 10:18 PM

I don't have pictures of her staff, but to make her wings, draw one side of it on the fabric or make your own pattern, and then fold it over so they're symetrical, you'll need to make two and put interfacing in between the two sides. Here's a picture of what I have so far of Atoli's: http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d155/amaisora/cosplay%20reference/100_1569.jpg that big square at the top will be cut later to be the straps that attach to her dress.

Meaka
10-12-2007, 03:55 PM
@Turtleen- I think the tips of her sleeves are darker and a bit more on the turquoise side.

As for forms that cover the stomach, the only one is really the 2nd form. 8D Well, there's also the new B-st form, but it is way too spiky for its own good.

ATOLIHASEOFTW
10-13-2007, 11:42 AM
The cosplay's I want to do are

Atoli [PLANNED]
Alkaid [When I lose weight ]=]
Tabby [PLANNED FOR some other con XD]

As for the Guys I want to do Xth Form haseo, Sakisaka and Ovan =]

But Atoli is my main on for Otakon. X3 I'm happy cause I have a friend in MA helping me and I have another Otakon go-er as Atoli to talk to =D

But I don't want to get a wig, cause I vcan't find any. (might by a cheap Halloween wig and try to pull that off XD)

EDIT: someone said they need an Atoli staff pic, so i found this http://www.acparadise.com/cosplayers/11755/11755-10784-1.jpg on ACParadise. So pretty ^^

Let me stress: DON'T DO THAT!!! XD;;; Are you willing to order online? Ebay is a great source for wigs ^__^ I can recommend some sellers to you if you're interested~

Meaka
10-13-2007, 05:38 PM
@ATOLIHASEOFTW- Yea, no matter what, a wig is always a good idea. Unless you have short blonde hair, then you could try styling it like Atoli's.
... And, by any chance, are you BreathLessX on D*A and Gaia?

ATOLIHASEOFTW
10-13-2007, 07:04 PM
@Rei- I'll have to ask my Aunt or someone in the family or friend to order. I was just looking and they have a very nice blonde wig. So pretty.

@Meaka- >O I've been found XD Yup, *peace* Yeah, wigs are good. I might ask my friend Ashley if she knows any good ones. =3

Turtleen
10-13-2007, 09:56 PM
@ATOLIHASEOFTW - 8D *remembers you from DA*
Yeah, it's a good idea to get the wig. Right now at party stores they do actually have some good wigs that aren't all that expensive but are still pretty good quality so you might not need to get it off the internet.

ATOLIHASEOFTW
10-14-2007, 12:19 PM

I absolutely love the .hack series. I've already cosplayed Tsukasa, and some time for 2008 I plan on making Kite and Haseo.

My little sister just told me last night that if I cosplay Kite, she'll cosplay Mistral. That would be so cute! I just worry about how hard a Mistral costume would be to make. Oh well, if we can pull it off, that would be awesome.

@finding dawn- YAY, AZURE BALMUNG! <3 I rarely see Azure Knight cosplay.

@Green Flame- Ooh! Good luck with the Mistral and Kite thing. X3 Especially if you wear those costumes to a summer con, because they have lots of layers...

To be honest, I've never played the .hack game series (pathetic I know :<) but a friend of mine dragged me one day to a con one day and she was ranting about "THE TERROR OF DEATH~ ZOMG!") and I saw Haseo. I really like the design of the whole outfit (+ twin daggers are t3h awesome) and went home to look it up.

And my my. Nearly all the game character designs make me go @___________@
*drool*

I so do wanna make Haseo's outfits (well save Form 1 that is XD Too much skin) But I really have no expertise in making prop pieces '____'

Plus, American cosplayers are lucky ;___; you people have fibreglass and all manner of foam and stuff easily obtainable. XD (I can't get materials to even go about experimenting and making stuff with some of the tutorials found on the net BECAUSE they're just not available in my country *sighs*)

Though, anyone has ideas on alternatives which can be used for all manner of prop making and such? I'll be eternally grateful 8D and with Haseo's different forms tempting me, wahheeeyyy I'm sure I'll do it!

Paperclay, model magic, presentation foamboards, craft foam, and even cardboard can be used in making props! Some of the best and lightweight props are made from really cheap materials. The trick is usually the way they are painted - spraypainted and rub n buffed or modpodge, and weathered to make it look realistic.

Turtleen
10-16-2007, 03:35 PM
Yes, cardboard and craft foam are deffinatly the cheap and easy to get way. It usually looks just as good as whatever else you could use too.
Sculpey clay (I think that's what it's called?) is also really good for little things that need to be thicker than a sheet of cardboard or whatever else you use.

Aer Arcanum
10-16-2007, 03:42 PM
Agreed. I make most of my props from cheap material, like posterboard, craft foam, and insulation foam, and the occasional paperclay. It sounds cheap, but good looking props can be made with these materials, and added with a good paint job, they look great!

That sound's great! I came across some tutorials on making armour using craft foam and I can't wait to try it out.

Though it calls for Rub N Buff, which I can't find shops in here. Are there alternatives to this which I can use to create similar effects? O:

Umm... Judging by the way Haseo's 2nd form armor looks, you've got quite a bit further to go XD; Unless you just mean the shoulder parts and stuff. But as for the sword and stuff, try asking on the props/accessories section ^__^ You're bound to get some really useful information there.

You can use mod podge lustre to make them nice and shiny too. XD If they don't have that...just look for any sealant/polisher that has like..."lustre" or "shiny" or anything of the like.

I found Mod podge! XDD after scouring a hardware shop and going through all the weird bottles located there. n_n;; but it was closing time so i had to scram while they chased me out.

Random yayness that I have to get off of my chest...

I'm going to be creating a costume based off of Haseo's anime form (1st form) for a character I'll be playing at a local LARP I used to go to and am looking to make a comeback into. I love the look Haseo has in the anime (less buckles and intricate details then his video game and higher form counterparts have, but still very awesome), and I'll be incorporating the majority of the costume into this LARP character's costume. The only details I'll be leaving out is the large belt around his neck (that's under debate), the jewels on his gloves, some of the belts on the pants' legs... and that's pretty much it. I plan to keep the design pretty much the same otherwise... it has to be a believable design for the setting of the game, and it needs to be manueverable as it's a very active game lol.

In any event, I was looking for tips on creating this costume. The pants are easy... I plan to get a pair of form-fitting leather or pleather pants, and a pair of black swashbuckler-type boots. I have some ideas for the gloves, but I'm a little lost on how to create the arm armor he has on his wrists. I'm mainly confuzzled on his shirt. I'm not great at creating a shirt, although I think I may have to (horrible at hemming because I hand-sew). I'm looking for advice for a beginner on how to create the shirt and have it durable enough for repeated heavy-activity usage. Either that, or is there a place I can go to buy a shirt in the same basic shape that Haseo's shirt is in? Yes, midriff and all.

I also intend to create a winter version based somewhat off of his X form (white to blend in with the snow hehe), although I have a pretty good idea of how to easily do that.

Help is much appreciated :D

The jewels i will either make from wonderflex or the same as my Cloud's swords and use high density foam covered in fiber glass and then painted.

For the staves i would use light weight PVC as a core for the staff part and then carve the headpiece out of high density foam ( i like the blue kind) then cover that in plexiglases or wonderflex. If you use wonderflex i also using easy plastic over that as a way to create a really smooth surface. I'm making my swords for my cloud costume out of the high density foam and covering it with plexiglas.

I'm curious about the hat, I made one earlier but all i did was put cloth around a pillow. While it looks nice, I don't think i'll find anymore pillows in that shape. I wanted to make shino too ^^

I've picked up work on my Keyaki again. He may not be finished by AUSA but that just means he'll be worn again to Katsucon. ^^

Progress (more for my memory than anything else):
Completed the tunic and belt and base pants. Still need to complete pants, and make shirt.
As for props, I have the fan in rough shape (needs sanding), the main part of necklace done (needs the part that holds main part to neck), horns painted, and wig colored. Still need to complete fan, style wig, attach horns to wig (does anyone know how to do this without dragging wig down?), and make shoes. Shoes will probably not be done in time to be safely worn to AUSA though. ^^;; *will need time to practice walking* @o@ I have confidence I can be there w/o correct shoes though. ^^

@Raenef- I have my own theories, but being the silly girl I am, they're probably way off from what the designers originally intended. Also, Zelkova = adorable. As for the horns... maybe make them hollow so they're lighter? XD; I don't really know...

@Ishotxemnas- Indeed I am, and not a moment of sewing goes by without me thinking, "WHY?!" And the floating red things... maybe try using thin wire to hook it to the main arm guard? 8D;

XD! Thanks! My poor scythe broke though (but I still have it XD).

I don't really know of any advice o.O I just started them, and they're more of an experiment than anything (though I plan on doing Xth form if I ever get enough money) (experiment because I usually make staffs, not guns XD). Patience is good advice, and it'd be best to sketch it out on paper first before even starting...that way you have a good idea of how it should flow (don't just look at the references, seriously draw it).

I didn't want to post images of it because it was supposed to be a secret XD but I'll give ya 3 images that I just took as I finished 1 detail piece of 1 gun (more details to follow):

Note: since I couldn't hold it up and get pics, (to grab all the angles) I found something else to hold it up XD;;

Foamboard. I'm really good with it ^^; (check out my Fai staff, that's foamboard as well)

Since there are so many details on the reference I have, I'll have to hand-paint it instead of my usual spraypaint. I'll probably use acrylic paint, but I haven't gotten that far yet ^^; I still have to figure out how to make the blade on the front float away from the gun XD;;;

I'm actually probably going to make mine with foamboard and pvc pipe as the person I'm getting it from doesn't have it included (I have to go through e-bay, so I suck...but the person who's making it has excellent quality).

D'omg! We had some much fun at our mini gathering at AUSA!
*huggles Raenef* I'm going to remake my Atoli because I hated that freakin hat. It kept falling off >__>
But that'd be put on the back burner. I really want to make something from trilogy. o__o It's coming out soon, Well the japanese version. I'll still be getting it perhaps at katsu i'll bring my dvd player and we'll all be nerds and watch it there.

11-21-2007, 11:14 AM
I liked your Shino hat. It had a good shape to it. :3
Yeah we had fun! ^w^ I still can't believe we never saw a Haseo though... >.>;;

I think you should make a skeith puppet. *remembers an AWESOME summoner Yuna with an Ifrit puppet or that girl from death note with the skeleton hanging over her* X3!!! That would be awesome!

...or we could just kidnap Kouga-fan once skeith is finished. :3

Hey, new around here...

I was just wondering. I'm trying to go about and make a Shino cosplay (I didn't realize until I joined here how popular her character really is. I think more people cosplay her than Atoli. Poor Atoli...) and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some reference pictures. Right now I'm working off of a 115x140 image of her game outfit (the black version) which is the outfit I want to make). I also have a fanart image that only really gives a decent view of her back, and then I have you wonderful fellow Shino cosplayers...

I was just wondering if anyone else had some better official images to work from. Just to get colours and everything. Thank you!

11-21-2007, 04:41 PM
I found this (http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/ninja_gohan/Dot%20Hack%20pics/Shinosexy.png) on the .hack//boards... though it may just be fanart. (hard to tell)

The costume is pretty much same as Atoli's with different coloring so color is all you really need for reference. :3

Hope that helps.

Yup, that's definitely an official picture of Shino. After all, it's on the main site (http://www.hack.channel.or.jp/gu/main.html) in her character section.

11-26-2007, 12:05 AM
Random hello! :3 Cause I hardly ever post.
It's late..should be studying... ^^; bleh I'll get to that eventually..

I just bought all my wedding shino fabric. I know If I really wanted to, I could get it done within three days, but I'll have to wait after finals week. I'm just so anxious to get it done.
Our 2nd form Haseo was scattered in the closet after AX, but I convinced my boyfriend to bring it back to life again. xD yaay.

Someone had this idea with plushies at one of the gatherings (like paopu). I think it would be cute if someone made chim chim plushies for everyone at a gathering. xD It would be so cute to have.

Mairen, you can use foam sheets too. I hear a lot of people use it to make light-weight armor by heating and forming it. I personally don't like wonderflex. It's good, but it's not very flexible. I doubt it working well for Black Rose chest armor.
Also- if you're cosplaying in the heat, wonderflex armor will start melting. ^^; I used it as last minute prop to make the cuffs on Silabus' boots the night before Anime Expo, and the heat ruined it pretty badly. I would have used something much more efficent if I had more time. xD;
You can also use sculpey or clay, but it would be a bit heavy.
Throwing in some options if that helps at all. :]

Aww don't feel like you're intruding! We love more people =) Good luck with Blackrose! I've never made armor before though so I don't think I'd be of much help. There are some armor making tutorials in the props section though I believe <3

@breathless, I have atoli's lost weapon. However it broke on the way to AUSA. :( I was Uber pissed.
@ mairen, thats because .hack fans are awesome! We spread the love. I wish you luck on your black rose! she's one of the originals so have fun with it. My kite is coming along swimmingly. :D I'll take pictures of it soon. Oh and I made a chim plushie!! I'll post it up soon too.

Good luck with your wedding shino too Shiya!

11-26-2007, 06:59 PM
weee~ new people! Hello Mairen! I agree with the foam part. You could also try Amethyst Angel's guide for the fiberglass-aphoic or something like that. It uses plastic sheeting in addition to the foam to get the plate armor look. :3

OoOoo~ Good luck with wedding Shino, Shiya~! =^w^= I can't wait to see it!
*suddenly wants to make a "wedding" Keyaki* ^o^ ohohoho~


*hugs her Atoli* X3 Sorry to hear about the staff. Nearly everything from Keyaki broke after AUSA... so lots of fixing for me! And yes, you must post pics... must.... *zombie-hypnotism*

@Mairen: X3 Aww, don't feel intimidated! We're here to help~ And yea, I'd go with what everyone else is saying.

@Shiya: Good luck on wedding Shino! I just know it's gonna be beautiful! The Chim Chim plushies thing is a good idea, but... XD;;; I'm a bit hesitant to try, considering how my Chimmy for my backpack came out.

@Ishotxemnas: Oh gosh, I hate spontaneous prop-breakage. I had Bo's Grimoire (the starter one, not his Lost Weapon), but it broke in the hotel room the night before.

Ishotxemnas
11-27-2007, 03:26 PM
*hugs back raenef* Yeah I saw you poor emblem on your shirt broke. :( It's frustrating! All that hard work for your costume to crap out at the last minute. I had my weapon painted and shiny and everything! then the large circle hip the roof of the car as I got out. I must have cursed like a sailor for a good 5 minutes. since i didn't bring any glue or anything. ;__; All my hard work. meh, I'll have to done for otakon or whenever I decide to do atoli again. :D
@ Meaka, Lucky! you had a hotel! :( I didn't get to go this time but I shall next year! Man summer is so FAR AWAY! This gives me time to find references for azure balmung. I don't know why, but I was playing G.U Vol.2 and I fell in love. instantanously. (it's a word, google it) I fell in love and if i can find a way to make his wings so that: they don't fall, don't smack people in the face, don't cause me to get stuck in doors, don't stab people in the chest, then I'm so totally making azure balmung!

*Your friend abandonned you and are all at Arby's or something*
You're a sad, lonely little azure kite, holding your wheel, all alone in the dark.
*Ok on a cosplay related subject*
So, I'm torn between Bst form and Azure Balmung. Mostly because I wanted to be someone badass. Blunt, but it's the truth. I can bet azure balmung would be more noticible then Bst form. and Bst form is kind of intimidating. ^^;; And I mean no puns but this, but it's "Horny" and i'm not good with making horns. they'd look like really pointy cylinders.
So I think I might be Azure Balmung for Otakon If I find a way to make the wings that would cause the death of innocents.
Any suggestions or pictures of azure balmungs wings? you'd be a big help to me. :)

For the wings I'd suggest Balsa wood, you'll get the right texture you'll need, thin enough and light weight, and its easy to cut with an exacto knife, you'll just need to be careful with the wings on. and I'd suggest that the wings be detachable some how from the actual armor itself so you don't run the risk of breaking them with packing and what not.

Aww!! You're so lucky, Maguma. (I have a feeling I know you from Somewhere....) D: I want to do teh Peanut butter jelly dance with yuri!!! And you started Break Dancing!!! D:It's a possibility you know me, you seem to know my Internet name already lol.

@ ATOLIHASEOFTW. (jeez, make a shorter name!) I'll just call you FTW.
Anyway, Good luck on your Atoli! I'll seriously try to make an alkaid so we can do all those lezy things at otakon. If not then, I'll think of something!

About, Azure Balmung. I made his wig, but I epically failed at the wings. I'll probably use his wig and dye it to make it into something else. Also, Azure balmung for otakon would be my own personal metal hell. So..NEXT!

I need to find some more pictures of kite from .hack/link. Anyone hear of .hack link? that tokio guy looks interesting, besides from his goofy hair. I mean, his hair is ridiculous looking. He reminds me of the digimon kid..anyway. Perhaps when .hack/link makes it's appearance officially, I'll grow to like him.

P.s anyone hear about trilogy? I hear it's being pushed back until march. Noooo;____; I was still hoping to see the japanese version for more info on Bst form.

@ raenef, yeah I know! The aida atoli is just so eerie and somewhat scary. But i like it anyway, I'd cosplay it but I have instant nightmares of walking around with that big green dress on and that hat, sheesh! I'll also need a haseo in his 2nd form to impale. hmm...

Good luck on XTH form meaka! Are you going to otakon this year again? I really hope to be there. I don't know what I'll be though, .hack has so many great characters. *Is torn* I definantly want to cosplay haseo ONCE, but Otakon is hot and crowded and just all around ICKY. I still love it though, funny how the whole love/hate thing works. :/

Oh a cosplayed related subject, I made a shino,black version, but I'm seriously thinking about revising it along with Atoli.
I like everything, BUT the hat. Why does it hate me so much? Why? It doesn't want to stay on my head! It's like, "No! I don't want to sit upon you, Unhand me!" and I'm like, :(
So yeah, *kicks shino hat*
I'll have to find something else for Katsucon, which I had planned on being shino, or Bo, Hopefully I can finish something by then. :)

Midwest Siiiiiiide or centeeeeeer, since mid west doesn't have a side...
JEEZ, I hate geography!

@ Raenef,
Noooooo ;____; I can't let keyaki-chan be all alone! I'll figure something out, hopefully o__o;; I'd love to be another member of moon tree. Hiiragi=love, but he dresses like a stripper. Kaedes' shoes scare me, I lol'd @ sophora, There is sakaki. Even though I uber abhor him, i still like his hair. It's Shiny and green.

Darn hat. I hate hats. But I think it'll be easier then I think. Maybe 83. I should really try to go to Katsucon. D:

Breathless come to katsucon!!! I'll be there! We needed more .hack cosplayers. Joiiiiiiiiiiiiin Us!

@Ishotxemnas- Yup! If all goes well, I should be at Otakon again this year! \o/ And oh gosh, the heat. I'm used to New Jersey heat, which isn't quite as bad as Maryland heat. That + long pants = dead Meaka.

@Raenef- I'm still a newbie at this, so I have no idea what it's really called... but umm... have a crappy, way too close and dark picture (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v76/ccmeaka/Stuff/Cosplay%20Progress/Xth%20Whoar/IMG_0668.jpg)?

@ATOLIHASEOFTW- Some things are like that. XD I remember thinking Bo's shoes would be impossible, but they turned out to be one of the easiest parts (let's just... ignore the fact they kinda died on me). Just take your time and try not to force yourself to keep working if you get frustrated. I learned this the hard way...

Argh. Schoolwork has come out of the woodwork on me! I probably won't be able to actually get anything done until Winter Break now. But then, I'll probably wind up getting distracted anyway. Curse my short attention span!

So far it's 1 to 1 though! We need a tiebreaker!

Well,
You should choose whatever is the easiest to get your hands on, and the most affordable.

@Ishotxemnas- Ehe, they weren't that great. They were only sugar cookies.

@ATOLIHASEOFTW- According to the magic of Google/Wikipedia, there's something called PersaCon (http://pc.epicenternetworks.com/) in Huntsville, Alabama.

Yay, I got my wig yesterday! But I'm way too intimidated to attempt to style it just yet. XD

So, I managed to finish my BO costume. I might wear it to Katsu If I can't bring myself to complete alkaid. :D I'll post up some pictures, oh and I made a new chim plushie. How's everyone elses' costumes?

12-19-2007, 01:14 PM
Well I figure its about time I post in this thread, lol. I'm in the middle of making an Asta cosplay, but I've got to run to the Joannes Fabrics to get more supplies. So far I have only done the pants. And I will be going to Katsucon! But I'd rather finish Asta before I decide which .hack cosplay to bring. I have to decide if I like Asta or Alkaid more to wear to it.

ATOLIHASEOFTW

@Ishotxemnas- Ahaha, I haven't gotten anywhere, really. XD I've been so busy studying for an anatomy test that I didn't have much time to sew. And I can't wait to see your Bo costume!

@DigitalGypsey- Asta, yay! Also, your Alkaid was AMAZING at Otakon!

Ishotxemnas
12-20-2007, 01:23 PM
@Meaka
So far, it's really crappy and bootleg but, meh. Once I get my new singer I can finally rest my poor fingers, I've been hand sewing the whole time >_<
A few times I used my friends machine, but I REALLY hope to get one for christmas :D which is in 5 days *dances around*

@Atolihaseoftw, I command you to cooooooome! (No puns intended)

@ digital gypsy, ASTA FTW! I remember talking about her hat at AUSA, It's so "Hexagonal-Octogonish" Like something you'd see off of katamari- *get's shot*
Your alkaid was EPIC! I've been looking at yours as a reference >_< they're arent many alkaid cosplayers and I really wanted to make one. You're coming to katsu?? Yay! I'll be there! As Bo or Some other person I decide to make before february rolls around. I really wanted to make alkaid though, I've been wanting too since last katsucon! It's been put on the back burner ;__;
May I ask, how did you make those shoes? That so far has been bugging me. I can't find any good shoes! So far I've been just thinking of sandals.

Meaka: I was looking through your gallery and I saw that you cosplayed Bo for Otakon this past year, yes? I took A LOT of pictures from the .hack photoshoot =D

I have a picture of a P-I-M-P Ovan with you in it if ya want XDD

@Meaka- Thank you!

@Ishotxemnas- Haha yeah I'm going to love doing Asta's hat. And thanks! Alkaid is really harder to make than I though it would be, maybe thats why ppl don't cosplay her as much. For the shoes, I just bought ones at the mall that were close enough and painted them. I would love to find a more accurate pair someday, but the ones I have now are good enough. And if you find a better way to put that fan on her back, let me know! Im still looking for a better way to do mine.

GU and Roots REALLY did the .hack series some justice after the first 4 games(if anyone played them you'd know what I mean xD ENDLESS dungeon crawling)

The character designs in .hack//GU are so amazing too!
For Fanime 2008 I'm going to be cosplaying as Roots Haseo.
EMO HASEO FTW XD

Budds
12-21-2007, 04:55 PM
@digitalgypsy- Your one of the best Alkaid's I've seen! I want to try to cosplay her but she seems a bit challenging to do. Alkaid is so aweome, she isn't one of the typical girls in a series, she's such a tomboy and i love it! XD
Also, your 'thumbs-up' pic of Alkaid, I've really been tempted to photoshop the words 'ALKAID APPROVED!' onto it :crylaugh:


I also wanna do Haseo's Xth form but his butt plates look like a pain and his coat rack is no better xD

Ishotxemnas
12-21-2007, 05:14 PM
@digital gypsy, will do! If I can find a easier way to attach that fan I'll let you know. I fear it'll be a royal pain.


Why hello there Budds! Welcome to the thread :D
Yes .hack g.u is good, however the original .hack/mutation series still holds a place in my heart ;__; *tear*
I wish you luck with your haseo! and yes he's butt plates are rather silly looking ^^;; It makes me ponder their true purpose. Just to make cosplayers angry I assume.

@Budds- Thank you! Alkaid can be challenging to do, but so worth it, lol. You can go ahead and photoshop the thumbs up picture if you want! If you do I so want to see it haha.

I cannot wait to finish Asta, I think I can have it done by the time winter break is over. And I think I might attempt her gaint weapon and have it done before katsucon.

@budds, your making xth form? or the 1st form? Xth form was a PAIN I thought the shirt part would be fairly easy. It wasn't! Nothing about that -form is easy. >_<come to think of it, none of haseo's forms are easy.

I'm going his 1st form, well, Roots form for Fanime next year. But I'm planning on doing his xth form sometime soon. It just looks so...AMAZING O.O
Do you have any pictures of your xth form cosplay?

Good news! Sometime this week(maybe tomorrow) I'm going to Joanne's to get PLEATHER to start on Haseo. Damn pleather is going to make me roast xD

Man I'm typing to much but, how's your Alkaid costume comming along xemnas-shooter? XD

Ishotxemnas
12-22-2007, 01:26 PM
Sweet a roots Haseo! I really loved roots, mostly because of the random funnys moments and the music.

Xemnas-Shooter, I lol'd!
Currently I finished my Bo and now i'm taking a break >_< But I did finish my alkaid wig :3

I've been waiting the trilogy trailer repeatedly. For some strange reason I want to cosplay Ovan. So I can walk up to random people and say "Become Stronger.." Or drag a Haseo cosplayer into the walgreens and say, "Welcome....to the Walgreens"

Meaka
12-22-2007, 02:05 PM
@Ishotxemnas- "Welcome... to the Walgreens" is quite possibly the greatest quote I've ever heard. 8Db

@Budds- Ooh, good luck with that! At least the //Roots version has less belts to worry about!

XD Right now, I'm trying to wonder where I'm going to find 14 identical belt buckles for the arm guards. I'll probably wind up making them myself somehow. I originally just considered getting dog collars and using them, but... yea, that'd be hard to explain. I checked Michael's, but they didn't have the right kind.

Ishotxemnas
12-22-2007, 02:31 PM
lol 14 dog collars? perhaps ordering them online? There so hard to find in fabric stores. I found some good ones in walmart once and then they dissapeared forever...

Walgreens is like another world inside our world. i swear, it's like the place has less gravity or something. I float around with bundles of items in my hands and then I end up never buy anything. :/

>_< I can't wait to see your XTH at otakon! Its so far awaaay ;____;

Budds
12-22-2007, 05:25 PM
LOL!!! Walgreen is AMAZING! Just walking in there my mind is like :eek:

I found a website online that sold regular belt buckles, the kind Haseo has. They were selling like a dozen for 3 dollars or something...sadly I lost that link >>
I shall re-find it! xD

Ishotxemnas
12-22-2007, 05:40 PM
I actually did a count of belts for my haseo 2nd form. I actually meant to make that for ausa but I couldn't find good enough boots.
My count was near to 50, including the ones on the shirt. >_<

His Roots form only has 8 belt buckles..which is good xD
The only thing is I don't know what to do for his butt-weapons..whatever they are! They're so...weird..

Meaka
12-23-2007, 06:49 PM
Aha! JoAnn's has the belt buckles that I'll need for the arm guards. Hopefully, no questions will be asked. XD I probably won't be able to get there until after Christmas, though. Our JoAnn's is by the mall, and... yeeaaaa. I'm not going over there.

I'm excited! I made my first pair of pants ever! They look okay to me, so... yay? I just need to get dye for the bottoms and make the ninja belt and they're DONE!

----

@Budds- Holy crap, good luck with those things. I'm not quite sure what they are, either. D:

@Ishotxemnas- 50?! See, this is why I chose the Xth form (... I think?).

Ishotxemnas
12-23-2007, 07:00 PM
Woo go meaka! Becareful with that dye though O_O I had a tragic expericence with fabric dye >_< Gradients are so friggin hard to do.

Xth form sure does less belts then all of the other forms, thats a plus!however, that windmill roller coaster seat thingy on his back is just ridiculous. What does that thing do??? What is it's purpose? Does it increase his running speed or something? If you had that thing on your back I don't think you'd be able to run any faster. I swear Bandai hates us >_<

Ninja belt, I lol'd. Maybe I can be ovan without that big arm locky thing. He was a normal player...once.

Meaka
12-23-2007, 07:12 PM
Or maybe you could make his *SPOILER* arm? Though, that'd probably be hard to figure out.

I'm contemplating the uses for the coatrack, too. So far, my only conclusion is... a coatrack. XD; So I asked my friends to bring light jackets and they'll hang it on it for fun. Or air fresheners in case it's not too sturdy.

Eep, that's my main worry, too. I'll probably have a piece of test fabric first to see how the dye works.

Ishotxemnas
12-23-2007, 07:18 PM
Coatrack?!? *Rolls around laughing* I'm going to go draw fanart of that now.
Oh you mean his weird "hooky" arm? I can even comtemplate how i'm going to make that. However it would be pretty epic If I did. :/ and I could further annoy a haseo cosplayer.
"THIS IS THE TRUTH YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR!" *pulls out a fortune teller* "Now, pick a number!"

12-23-2007, 09:15 PM

It does look like a coatrack...

Budds
12-23-2007, 09:48 PM
LO! Haseo's Xth form is so useful. Buttplates, coatrack xD -sigh- Bandai does hate us.

"LETS PUT PLATES ON HIS BUTT!"
"Plates..?"
"YEAH!!! LETS DO IT"
*Shrug* "Alright, plates on his butt it is!"

I also realized that each of Haseo's forms resembles an animals..
Form 1: TURTLE(the symbols on his shoulders and that weapon thingy on his putt look like turtles)
Form 2: BULL (he has those horn thingies on his back)
Form 3: KITTY (the two spikes of hair on his head look like kitty ears!)
Xth Form: If you look at his glove closely, it looks like an owl! xD

Yes....I have too much time on my hands xD

Ishotxemnas
12-23-2007, 10:56 PM
An owl?? Haha!!
Haseo XTH Form shall now be known as the Home Depot form!
I like his 3rd form more then all of the rest, too bad it's virtually impossible for me to make. >_<

There's someone in the 2nd game I think who says that he looks like a kitty in 3rd form and asks to touch his hair.

Hello! I've been watching this thread for months but have been too scared to join in (I never wanted to intrude on the fun you guys seem to have. .hack groups are always so much fun because the characters can sometimes be so ridiculous! It's too much at times.

I'm planning to cosplay Shino over the summer with my girlfriend (xth form Haseo... *groans, I know! so tedious...*) and well... yeah... I haven't even gotten STARTED yet. But I still have time. Right?

I have the wig, but it's a light purple colour... but I'm thinking of making Shino's outfit more black than what others make it (I've seen it as almost a plum colour sometimes.) But I don't really know... like I said, haven't started.

I hope you guys let me in on the party that's going down around here.

Ishotxemnas
12-28-2007, 10:30 PM
Ack! This thread went down so much ;__;
Greetings shivachan! Yes, join in the maddness. mwaha.
Yay more shino's! I love shino/atoli's outfit design its so cute >_< And Xth form just looks so badass doesn't it? Then once you start making your like, "God, why! why does he need a coat rack on his back? why does he have plates on his butt?? what is the point of all this?"

p.s yes ovan is a pedo, him and his shiny glasses. Pedo glasses!

Meaka
12-28-2007, 10:47 PM
@shivachan- We're not that intimidating, are we? 8D;; About the outfit color, I believe it's because //Roots had a more purple-ish shade on her "dark" outfit than the games.

8D Oh my, another person suffering through the production process of the Xth form. Sometimes, I wonder what Yoshiyuki Sadamoto was thinking when he designed it...

@Ishotxemnas-
Well, I still don't know whether I want to cosplay Shino or Atoli... But I basically only have to figure that out by the time I go and start buying fabric for the dress. ^^ I love Atoli so much, she's my favourite character in the entire game (I just relate to her really well...) But Shino is so wonderful and acts more like Haseo's older sister and I really love her relationship with Haseo...

@Meaka-
Not intimidating... but it's hard to just kinda worm your way into a place. The .hack communities on LiveJournal (especially the G.U. ones are like a home to me, so squeezing into a new scene is... new?) I'm glad you guys are JUST as special. G.U. is so easy to just... make FUN of! We mock what we love.

And I haven't actually seen Roots. But when watching the scenes with Shino in the game (though they were more 'sepia flashback hued') her dress looked more black and her hair more a light purple...

But I still don't know if I'll be Atoli or Shino. We'll see.

The Xth form is insane, but I think it's Haseo's best. He always looks so... HAPPY and smiley in that form more than his others. But the random bits of armour is crazy. It really does make me wonder if the wheel on his back actually is like a propeller. Maybe he can fly?

But I can't explain the plates. *shakes head*

idimmu
12-29-2007, 02:15 PM
@shivachan

Durr hurr, I know you.

^^;;

Anyways, I'm another crazy person making all of Haseo's armour for Xth form. OMG brains. I'll probably just free form it out of wonderflex though. Hopefully it doesn't melt in the car on the way up? Heh... It shouldn't...

I'm a procrastinator till the bitter end, so this cosplay season is definately going to be learning time.

So I've seen the bit on needing 14 matching buckles for his arm pieces, but has anyone noticed any other random details in that outfit?

Ishotxemnas
12-29-2007, 04:00 PM
Hey Xth form guys, I found this really cool image that would be of great to you all. It almost makes me want to finish up mine.

Silly Home Depot Form.

@ Shivachan
Atoli, or Shino thats a tough decision. ^^;; They're both cute, poor haseo. lol having to make that decision must have been tough!
You should be whomever you relate to most, and if you relate to them both. Cosplay them both ^^ and roots is pretty awesome. I hooked me in the 1st episode. I love the random funny moments, like when kuhn- *get's shot for trying to spoil things*

shivachan
12-29-2007, 04:12 PM
@Idimmu-
*pokes* =P

That's a really awesome picture Ishotxemnas! Sweet.

Atoli and Shino ARE both cute (but then again, they are digitized graphics and probably mostly look the exact same minus some details like colour and Shino's teardrop tattoo.) I love Haseo/Atoli... it makes me turn into utter mush! (I do really like the both of them... but I just have to choose one of them right now. Once I make the outfit once, I'm sure I can do it again later in different colours. ^^)

Is it sad to sad that the animation style of Roots kinda threw me off? I started playing G.U. first and then... the art in Roots was so different it made me sad... *is shallow like that?* But I really DO want to try to watch the show. Or else I barely understand things.

.hack is wonderful for its random funny moments. ^___^ It's what makes it so hilarious.

Ishotxemnas
12-30-2007, 03:19 PM
I really do like haseo/atoli to be honest i never thought i would. I usually don't like the story line couples. Gabi/Haseo FTW! *I'm joking*
I hope all goes well with your costume ^^
Since you like them both , whom ever you pick you'll be happy be happy with.
AND, you can go around harassing Haseo cosplayers. I really want to make an Ovan for the purpose.
*sneaks up behind random people*
"Become Stronger..."

shivachan
12-30-2007, 03:33 PM
*dies*

That would be SO hilarious! Seriously, I died at you "Welcome... To the Walgreens" comment.

Harassing Haseo is what makes my day.

I usually don't like storyline couples either... but there's something about Haseo and Atoli... It works so well. Or maybe it's because I relate to her so much and I desperately want her to be happy.

Haseo's such a player though. Everyone falls for him (I also love him with Kuhn or Silabus. Endrance is also... hilarious.)

It would definitely be more fun to have a Haseo, Shino and Ovan... but I don't know who would be willing to be Ovan out of the small group of friends in my area...

Ishotxemnas
12-30-2007, 04:05 PM
Yes! Kuhn/Haseo they're my OTP!
That is so true, Everyone is gay for Haseo. EVERYONE, even CHIM.
That would be so cool if we could have roots group at otakon >_< I love roots characters! especially midori and saburo. I'd love to find more references for midori, the hit taker girl. I can't find any good references.

shivachan
12-30-2007, 04:11 PM
One day I wanna cosplay Tabby too, cause I adore her. She's so CUTE!

The only problem is the wig that curls into a tail... >< Why can't she just HAVE a tail and not hair that looks like a tail ><

Ishotxemnas
12-30-2007, 04:17 PM
I actually like tabby, i didn't think i would because usually the bubbly people annoy me. I also wonder why her tail is there too. O_o

Ah, I would love to see a sakisaka. I would glomp a sakisaka cosplayer.

Meaka
12-30-2007, 07:54 PM
Ooh, pairings? We'd be here all day if I listed all my favorites, so let's just leave it at "Who needs canon?!"

Ehehe, I'm one of those people who doesn't like Tabby. But hey, to each their own, right? I know lots of people hate Saku, and I adore her.

@Ishotxemnas-
If all goes according to plan, there'll be a Sakisaka at Otakon~ <3

shivachan
12-31-2007, 01:32 AM
I love Saku too and she's on my list. I actually want to make a Saku/Bo cosplay, with detachable sun and moon, so that you just flip the hat around, fluff/straighten hair, inside out/reversible backpack and put the sun and moon back in and it's a whole new character. ^^

"Who needs canon" indeed. But Haseo/Atoli is so cute~~~ (I about died when Haseo thought 'was Atoli always this cute?' I DIED!)

Meaka
12-31-2007, 01:16 PM
That would be amazing! I wish you a lot of luck when you decide to start it!

It's funny, I was indifferent to Haseoli during the first two games (I liked both characters, but together I wasn't too sure...). Then Atoli was all, "Hey, look at my awesome character development!" in Vol. 3, and I started shipping it. XD

Ishotxemnas
12-31-2007, 06:11 PM
Same! I have so many otp's its like TMTP's Too many true pairings
Ohase, WAS one Until I saw his weird aida arm and was like, "eww.."
And How is Ovan supposed to.... you know- with the big arm in the way???
Ovan: My arm got stuck...
Haseo: :(

I didn't like saku UNTIL she beat down negimaru. Then I loved her!
Haseoli lol? Is that the official name now. I've heard 3 differents ones >_<
I really liked haseo/atoli in the begining and then when he called her cute, well "thought" she was cute. I Squee'd. I wanted to slap him with a stick and say "It took you two ps2 games to figure that out?!?"

Oh and I made my Bo hat like that! with the same patterns on the front and back so if want to be saku I'd just turn it around. I just need to make a red bag for saku.

I swear this happened,
I was chasing this group of chim and then I cornered one into a wall. It looked like it was humping haseo's leg. o__O;;

LOL! That's so true everybody IS gay for Haseo!
My favorite OVERAL pairing for .hack is Haseo/Alkaid

I mean come on, he knew Shino for like a year and even got her phone number. He visited her daily in the hospital and he went through so much to bring her back. She finally gets back and he leaves her RIGHT THEN AND THERE for someone else! They don't even have a cute reunion!

He and Alkaid hated each other, then they were friends for what? Lets say 2 weeks. Then she got Aida'd and she comes back like a month later and they HUG!!!! They even hugged AGAIN in the marriage ending picture!

Haseo totally likes Alkaid! It's so obvious
Too bad Alkaid has her eyes set on Atoli..xDD

Oh man. I up and dissappeared for a few months and I MISSED ALL THE FUN. Yeah, I'm eventually gonna get around to Haseo's home depot version. IT'S JUST SO COOL LOOKING except for those plates on the behind.

I'm still gonna try Alkaid! I just..need to get more in shape >_>;

I've been too poor to begin any cosplays though XD; ONCE I START, I WILL LET YOU ALL KNOW.

@Budds- Oddly enough, that's one of the few pairings I don't like. 8D; But I guess I really shouldn't say anything, considering how I ship Alkaid with Sirius. I was considering cosplaying her, too, but then I realized, "Holy crap, cleavage," not to mention the fact I'm not her biggest fan.

Also, JoAnn's site (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat3273) has plain belt buckles. I mass-ordered the 14 I need~

@Shiroake- Ah, money, our biggest adversary. This hobby is especially hard on jobless individuals such as myself. XD; But my dad doesn't want me to get a job until I'm out of high school. Arrgghhh.

Yes, I'm about 1/3 done the shirt! I'm taking my time because I really don't wanna mess up. XD

Shiroake: I know how you feel. Money is the major reason why I'm only at 10% with Atoli still. -___-;

This is random, but I can't seem to find any pictures of a Pi cosplayer. Has no one cosplayed as her yet? I know her outfit is beyond difficult, but still.

I know people cosplay as Pi. This girl did but she spelled it Pai instead.

I'd concider cosplaying Pi one day. But for now I've got SO much other things to work on haha. I've been working on Asta since yesterday and I'm thinking I can have it done real soon. But I haven't even started on that hat yet. Well I should go get back to work. I can't wait to have this costume done!

>_< I still need to add the white "hoh hoh hoh" things on the skirt. and I have to find a way to make the skirt more puffy and round :/
This hat is hard to walk in! I keep bumping into my lamp! I swear you'd never hear Bo curse as much as I do.
Bo: Wtfhdsklsjdks!?!!?
