Me and some friends are planning to cosplay Dir en Grey in their Yokan PV, but after hours and hours of searching the internet, I haven't found anything really useful...^^;;

All I have to work with at the moment is the actual PV (Which is almost impossible to make out what the costumes look like) and one picture of japanese cosplayers(Which doesn't help much also because it only shows the upper half of their costumes). XD;;;

Any help? Images? Anything? It would help lots. ^^

Thank you. ^__^

Heh. I asked this question not too long ago, since I'm also working on some of these, and the answer seemed to be, pretty much, that nobody has pictures. These outfits never really made it into any photoshoots - I think because they were *designed* to look featureless on film. So all there is really is the PV and maybe some screenshots if you're lucky, which of course aren't much more helpful. But it is possible to make out quite a bit from watching the video. Over. And over. And over.

If you tell me which ones you're working on, I'll be glad to tell you my observations.

If you have the clip of that little talk before they do the Yokan live, you can sorta make out there costumes when they stand up. You'll need to do a little improv though. btw, on Die-chan's page she has a Yokan shirt, I can't remember which band member though.

I think I can take screenshots if you need them. Just tell me what member(s) you need and give me an e-mail address that accepts big attachments. ^_^

Die's is probably the easiest as it's basically a white version of his black Cage costume...

Hmm...interesting...XD;; I have a picture of Die already, and I can kinda make out what Kyo and Toshiya is wearing...

But I have no idea what Kaoru and Shinya wears...

Cyber Wolf, it would be very helpful if you can get me some screenshots. ^^ I think i would need some of each member of the band, if it's not too much trouble...^^; Thank you~ My email is at Shimo@the-lair.com.

Thank you Koumori and Cyber Wolf. ^_^

Shinya's wearing a long white dress with long sleeves and a waterfall-type hem; looks kinda like a wedding dress. Kaoru's outfit is similar to Toshiya's except raggier, but for the life of me I can't figure out what he has on his head.

I'm getting "403- Forbidden" notices from your links...

I'm also getting the 403 message...^^;;

Thank you for the info again Koumori, but I was wondering... do you think Shinya is wearing any pants under his dress? This one picture I saw of him, it kinda looks like that. ^^

I have two pictures of Toshiya and one picture of Die. o.o; One Toshiya and Die are pictures of them made into a background I found on a site and the other Toshiya is one when he wears it live at some concert. *shrugs* Theres also another video out there in their yokan outfits. Sadly, mines an incomplete video X.x;

Okay, well now I'm just getting 404s. Cute 404s, though. ;)

I don't think Shinya's wearing pants under that dress, but (say it with me now) it's hard to tell for sure. I did find one full length pic of that dress on cosplaylab, and of course it's from that artsy/gauzy set they did: http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=23119 You can see that the hem is up and down, but I don't think there are pants underneath. There's also a brief shot of his feet (stepping forward) in the PV.

Hmmm.... they worked for me. All that direct linking must have p*ssed the web master off. Maybe you should just go to the site, and look for the GAUZE dvd pics, which are where they are from.

.i'm so verry sorry about that ;_; ..i'll just give the place i got them from: http://www.crysania.com/tattered/
just go to images..and then images ..then DVD GAUZE..sorry again..

No problem, I got 'em. Unfortunately they're so artsy they're almost useless. Not unlike the PV itself. :)

i have *some* non PV images of them from the fan club mag, their tiny though, if you want them PM me.

Um, yeah. I too am atteptimg Shinya's Yokan outfit... I need help trying to figure out what the ruffles on the front look like... and his shoes.

This thread is four years old. I don't think these people have photos anymore-- I know I don't.
