Guan Ping

Default outfit

Dynasty Warriors 6

Last Updated: 08-01-2011

I'll be a member of Sephilia's Dynasty Warriors cosplay group at Otakuthon 09! :D

She needed someone to be Guan Ping, so I volunteered to be him. I'll need to work out for the next few weeks...

She's responsible of making the main clothes and part of the armor pieces for me, for a fee (I'm commissioning her). I'll be responsible to build the weapon and the rest of the armor. I'll probably request a wig from her too, as I just cut my hair.


Aug 1, 2011 - Otakuthon is just days away and the armor has NOT been received yet. Wig is done. I brought what was done to Otakon '11 and had a good reception from another DW cosplayer!

Jul 23 - Finished scale mail armor scales for Anime North 2010, now in Mourngrim's possession. Wig is in Yukem's possession. I hope they'll do a good job and that they'll finish them very soon. I still must pass the black vest to Jusdepomme for her to embroider the red dragon design on it.

Jan 14, 2010 - Made the necklace, doing the belt buckle ornament and the headband patch.

Sep 07 - Got the wig, but arrived after I left Montreal for Fan Expo. Weapon completed (at 90%) in the hotel room on the night from Friday to Saturday at Fan Expo, at 5 in the morning.

Jul 29 - Passed the $100 mark in cost of materials. Crescent blade, spear head and tassel hair finished. Next: Blade holder and spike.

Jul 15 - Ji halberd weapon completely analyzed and measured. Buying materials this week.

Jun 09, 2009 - Started to study the character and his weapon. Started to plan to make the weapon, choosing the materials, gathering the tools, etc.


This is the gross amount spent toward this cosplay. It includes other items bought/ordered with the cosplay items, plus taxes and shipping. All amounts are in CAD, unless otherwise noted. The net amount has yet to be calculated. Note: I stopped counting my spendings after the commission fee.

Corrugated plastic for Ji spearhead - Bought - $9.92
Isolation foam, Wooden dowels for Ji axe-blade and shaft connectors - Bought - $28.50
1 more dowel (previous ones were underestimated in diameter), primer, painting brushes, spray paints (dark red, dark green) for Blue Dragon Ji paintjob - Bought - $47.22
Red ribbons for tassel, acrylic paints, metallic paints - Bought - $23.47
Leather string for necklace, craft foam pack - Bought - $13.48
Dark brown wig, wig cap - Ordered - $46.49
Armor pieces, made in real leather - Commissioned from Mourngrim - $120


None yet. Aiming for Novice - Best Presentation or Novice - Best Weapon at a Masquerade. If not competing in Masq, a Hall Costume Award.
