OK, so 2009 didn't pan out due to lack of communication and readiness, but 2010 is the year for sure! No more singling groups out, we're going all out with an entire Tokusatsu group/photoshoot! Sentai, Kamen Rider, Tomica Rescue, Ultraman, and more! All are welcome for this group. So make yourself known, let your voices be heard, and join the ranks!

You can count me in for Ryuutaros. =3 I won't say which version, because I'm trying to keep it a secret from someone until closer to time, but you can definitely count me in. =3

Finally, someone replies lol. I'll most likely be bringing Gaoh back. If I ever get Kick Hopper done, that'll be my main costume though.

Zipchan

I hope you're able to finish Kick Hopper. =O I'd absolutely LOVE to see that.

Shinkenred, nice. I totally want to do Shinkengold. My other cosplay group is actually partially inspired by Shinkenger. It's a group of Japanese demons (yokai), the more under-rated ones. I'm doing a Tengu representing the element of wind, a friend is doing a yamachichi representing earth, a kasha representing fire, etc. It's started giving off a vibe of Shodophones in the hands of Ayakashi XD

hahah that's a really cool concept, yea shinkenger is the last sentai i watched since gekiranger. i really didn't care for go-onger. but yea the kamen rider V1 would be easier since i have a friend who can already mold plastic and fiberglass. the shinkenred is where it gets hard since i don't know how to mend spandex.

Lucky! I'm making my Kick Hopper armor out of sports gear and craft foam. But at least the eyes light up!

As for the spandex, I think there's guides online on how to make spandex costumes. Personally I'd go with Lycra instead of spandex. It's what I used for my DOA4 Ryu Hayabusa.

07-25-2009, 12:29 AM
yea im kinda leaning towards the kamen rider cosplay, i think it would look a lot better since i convinced a friend to go as nigo. the whole double rider thing would be pretty crazy. i wish i could get some friends to go as some shocker riders or any of the generals. that would be amazing!

Alright, so I've started working on Imagin form Ryuuta; I'm planning on having it finished by Katsucon. =D I don't know what exactly I'm doing for the helmet/armor-type pieces, but some friends of mine (who are cosplaying the other Imagin) are going to help me out, since they have experience with things like that. ^_^;

Nice. I would love to see that. If your group does Imagin a second day, maybe we could do some shots of you all duking it out with my demon group.

I LOVE YOU FOREVER! I may bring back Yuuto just for that. I should just leave all my cosplays in the car so I can change out, or walk around the con with a suitcase XD

So far, looks like I'm bringing back Yuuto and Gaoh, may be doing Ren from Ryuki, if I ever get Kick Hopper done that's a priority, and I may do Yaguruma anyway. God dammit, too much! I'm gonna need private photoshoots with everyone twice over XD

And then my tengu to top it all off. Grr

Deneb is slowly coming along, I've mainly got a bunch of small pieces done XD

the gloves are about 60% done and the Helmet's just about finished, I just need to put all of that together, and I haven't really started on much else. I'm working towards finishing him by Katsucon, and I know for a fact he's coming to AZ XD

djkidna
10-22-2009, 09:16 AM
Sounds good. Yeah I've been focusing more on Halloween myself this year. Also, I have too many costumes for next year lol. The return of Gaoh and Black Mage, plus my Tengu, and then probably Yuuto, and at some point my steampunk outfit. Lord help me when I ever finish Kick Hopper

Nitro
10-22-2009, 12:49 PM
Hahaha, I feel ya on the huge costume list action :/

I'm probably going to do something simple for Halloween with some scraps around my house, leaning towards Urataros-possessed Ryoutaro since I already have like...everything for it. XD It's also the same suit I'm eventually going to use for....Recurring Fangire Guy With The Handpuppets from Kiva XD

djkidna
10-22-2009, 04:56 PM

As a heads up to you special few, I may be revealing a special custom Toku related project by AZ. It combines two styles, Toku and something else that I've grown rather fond of since last New Years. I hope it turns out and I hope you all enjoy what I have in store.

My list keeps growing as far as true Kamen Rider cosplay. From Kick Hopper, to Knight, and then Ibuki. Ugh, too much stuff I want to do.

Here's a good priced Leangle Buckle on eBay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140357195777
$24.99 + $18.00 shipping

It's brand new though, so I don't know how you'd feel about modding it. Any toy I plan on modding to where you can't get it back to the way it was, I try and get used, but it's impossible to find used toys on eBay, pretty much everything being sold is new. But, that's a damn good price, you're not gonna get cheaper than that on the Leangle Buckle unless you know someone in Japan who won't charge you a service fee to buy it and ship it to you there like middleman service sites charge (Rinkya charges like 20 bucks per item over 1000 yen).

Cheapest Glaive Rouzer online right now is the one from Toys N Joys, which is $149.95 plus $13.00 shipping. The cheapest Glaive Rouzer on eBay is $149.99 + $19.99 shipping.

They didn't make a Glaive belt. They only made the Rouzer for Glaive as a Toys R Us exclusive. You would have to buy a Leangle belt and mod it to Glaive.

My friend Kyuubi (FinalHeavenTifa), she plans on doing L'arc at some point. Do yourself a favor, buy an action figure. Here's the cheapest Glaive action figure on ebay:
http://shop.ebay.com/370316189939

Also, Leangle Belt modding, gonna need to do more than just place the resin logo on top of it. I recommend actually taking it apart and replacing the Club Logo entirely. I've seen it done on Henshin Justice Unlimited's forum:
http://henshinjustice.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14438


On another note, I did get my DecaDriver, and I cosplayed as Tsukasa at Ichibancon. Check out my cosplay gallery. So Decade, we can do a Decade/Tsukasa pic, and then if you do W also we can have you, me, and Zip doing a shot. If someone could do Fang/Joker W also, that would be even more awesome.

It doesn't come with the Driver or anything, all you're purchasing is the belt mod. It's molded leather or something from what google translator is telling me.

For anyone wanting to look at any of the other mods he makes, here's the store frontpage
http://openuser.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/user/mrarmyshop?alocale=0jp&mode=1

Personally the only ones worth getting are Kabuto/Gatack (complete with Clock Up pad), any of the Blade belts, Kiva and Dark Kiva, NEW Den-O, any Faiz belts, and the Double Driver. Den-O, Zeronos, Kick/Punch Hopper, IXA, and Saga I think are way to easy to mod yourself than to waste time and money on his. NEW Den-O can be done yourself too but you could very easily screw up your toy. The rest of the belts I listed require serious molding to get them to look right, so I do in that situation recommend purchasing from mrarmyshop if you can do it with a cheap middle man service or if you know someone in Japan.

Yea he does alot of great mods have been following his work on YJ for a little he is also a member on my site and rangerboard.com. Yea I plan to do more than that when I get to further progress on the costume of course but I thank everyone for there input .

My only thing with him as a seller is that he doesn't do payment plans or anything for his really expensive stuff, which I think would be good, though I suppose they're not so pricey that it's necessary. I don't think herocosplay.com does payment plans either. Ugh, oh well.

No I dont think aniki does... however a person I know that does also makes costumes and rider suits... name is sushyia he is on rangerprops and rangerboard. Hey does payment plans and basically will not start on the costume till so much is paid. He will send your progress pictures to make sure everything is to your liking.

They still have K-Touches last time I checked. I know cause I'm meaning to get one too. You can get one for 77 bucks total, including shipping to the US. Or you can get 3 for 200 bucks total including shipping.

What's also sweet is he's selling Decade's Dai-Shocker jacket.

So I might not actually make it out to AZ this year due to trying to move out this summer and thus finances being iffy.

Oh, and I'm actually working on my belt again with pleather :D

As long as it doesn't turn into the Kamen Rider panel at Katsukon, complete with iRL trolls. We need to do more than just show openings, and make it more toward introducing stuff to people who are new to it. That's my opinion anyway.

Zipchan
03-09-2010, 03:25 PM
Very true.

As soon as Momocon's over, I'll send in the panel app if they're still taking them. These next two weeks are just so crazy for me. @_@;

Awesome! I got some progress with the double and decade files. I should bring double to it or Decade? Dunno which one. Probably Double right? Its on the air now and people probably would like to pick it up.

djkidna
03-16-2010, 07:35 PM
Well if you do either, I'll try to be there as untransformed unless I somehow magically finish Kick Hopper in time.

You never did get back to me on where I can find those files you got for the models.

Also, if you do end up making me some armor, I guess I could just Decade form for it as well lol.

Sentai, Kamen Rider, Tomica Rescue, Ultraman, and more! All are welcome for this group. So make yourself known, let your voices be heard, and join the ranks!

Nice to hear some tokusatsu enthusiast from other countries...

Anyway... me and my son are cosplayed as Ichigo & Nigo the first for these last two years...
and I'm in the middle of making Glaive and Blade for us since the nigo costume is getting too small for him... he3x

Actually ichigo is not made by me.. It's a resin helmet and I bought it from a friend of mine at little giant studio: http://littlegiantstudio.multiply.com/

The Nigo is actually a modified el cheapo motorcycle helmet.. he3x.. here's the journal I made when I am making that helmet: http://d2sarwono.multiply.com/journal/item/7/My_Sons_Nigo_Jr
Sorry it's in Indonesian language.. ^^

as for the blade and the glaive, they are made from sawdust-wooden glue mixture. I learn it
from a nice philipine guy: http://gougetsu.multiply.com/photos/album/46/Helmet_Tutorial_Pics

Other than blade & glaive, I'm currently working for classic Ichigo & Daburu helmet for my friends.. the pics are posted on my multiply photo album. Feel free to browse around.. ^^:

Alright, finally decided on what to bring this year. I'm bringing Phillip, Trap!Phillip, and something secret. I won't tell you what the secret is, but it's part of a small, secret group, and it is from something toku. :D

djkidna
04-29-2010, 10:28 AM
OK gang, which untransformed rider should I bring this year? The choices are:

Len/Ren - Kamen Rider Knight/Wing Knight (with girlfriend as Chase/Siren)
Kenzaki - Kamen Rider Blade (requires getting a new wig)
Mutsuki - Kamen Rider Leangle (if I don't turn my buckle into Larc for a friend)
Hajime - Kamen Rider Chalice (requires getting a new wig)
Ibuki (may require getting a new wig)
Yaguruma - TheBee or KickHopper version
Yuuto/D-Yuuto - Kamen Rider Zeronos
Nago - Kamen Rider IXA
Otoya - Dark Kiva
Taiga - Kamen Rider Saga
Tsukasa - DECADE! (slim chance for girlfriend to be Natsumi)
Shotaro - Kamen Rider Double

Zipchan

An introduction to tokusatsu, with emphasis on Kamen Rider and sentai. Discussions, video clips, and ridiculous games (RIDER FASHION CHECK~!) are just part of the fun.
Now I just need to see if Xandy will be bringing Bruce the Shark, I'll give him the Faiz Accel Watch

Oh good they fixed the forums finally.

Anyway, you know I've got tons of stuff to bring. I have every Kamen Rider ANYTHING that TV-Nihon has released, as well as Agito, Black, Amazon, the SD Riders OVA. I have some Sentai, including all of Gekiranger and Shinkenger. I have all the mature J-Hero Toku shows that TV-Nihon did (GARO, Cutie Honey, Ultraseven X, Sh15uya) as well as Keitai Sousakan 7. I have Lion Maru G, Konami's Specter. I'll probably grab Ryukendo if I have the hard drive space.

As for music, I have every Kamen Rider album ever released I'm sure, as well as music for almost all the toku I've listed.

I have Climax Heroes W on my computer, as well as the Mega Man Decade mod I'd been working on for almost a year I think. If there's anything else you could think of, chances are there's not enough time to bring it in :P

And on the topic of Imagin cosplays, does anyone have any advice on making the helmets? My friends and I are planning on doing them for Otakon this year, we've pretty much figured out what we're doing about the bodysuits/armor but the helmets are throwing us for a bit of a loop.

Which ones in particular are you doing? I was going to try and make Ryuutaros at some point this year, but the cost was going to kill me when I was actually trying to make it. @_@;

weee...for Deneb (of whom I've also put on hold due to time/cost), I cut a dome-shaped plastic bowl in two and made a helmet base and smoothed modeling clay over it, coated, sanded, and painted it, and made the mask details out of craft foam. Never got around to making the eyes, though I contemplated thin sheets of plexiglass or a similar material~

I wish you luck on your Imagin-cosplay-quest, I'm sure they'll be epic

05-19-2010, 12:15 PM
No problem. And yeah, We're doing Momo, Ura, Ryuuta and Deneb. I think rather than Craft foam they had the idea of using paperclay for the actual mask part, the dome they were building off of a either a mold of an old motorcycle helmet, or just building onto one of those cheap kids costume helmets. Not sure after that though, although while looking last night i did see some done with the craft foam that looked pretty good, thanks for the heads up Nitro. And Zipchan, if you could that would be awesome, thanks.

05-19-2010, 12:33 PM
Paper clay, like Crayola Model Magic? That should be good. If you haven't seen it yet, there's a cosplayer on this site who did a costume from Bubblegum Crisis in Model Magic, it looks fantastic. Here's the costume http://www.cosplay.com/costume/123578/

Nitro
05-19-2010, 08:47 PM
Paperclay is a thicker clay that's less fragile than Model Magic, but Model Magic is easy to work with, though I've had a few issues with it in the past, pieces breaking off, but I didn't really coat it with anything, if I were to use it again I'd just use it as a base or something and work around it with sturdier materials~

I just like playing with craft foam because it's cheap and easy and I get decent results XD; I's lazy
