haha! I've never made it my goal to actually look scary for a cosplay, but this must be my first time! xD I'm soooo excited <3333 I adore Viral to the extremes and am so happy to get the chance to cosplay him :]
I'll have to do chouginga viral or something some day just to say i used my own hair x3
update/ April 8th: Viral wig. It has been recieved. <33333
April 10th: hands and teeth came in!! :DD They are wonderful!
April 18th: nearly halfway done with the costume!! Pants are made and jacket is almost finished! The only real problems now are the contact, shoulderpads, and chop-chop-cleaver-san! I don't think that they will be too dificult though :]
Final Update: Finished in time for ACEN! Even though I couldn't obtain the cat-eye contacts in thime, it turned out really wonderful! Although difficult to wear, it was a lot of fun, really it was. I've got a few pictures that I may post from the con, but I'm looking forward to a seperate shoot soon where I can make sure that butt-box's belt isn't showing below my jacket. x.x
Final costume is made of 4-way stretch and a type of vinyl-ish fabric for the armor and red belt. Hands are Dementor hands that were purchased online [although, I would like to eventually change the colour of them], and then--! the shoes were fantastic! xD I found them at goodwill and made boot covers for them out of iceskate covers and left over vinyl. Although incredbly painful, they were perfect for Viral. I wasn't planning on keeping the heel, but I would have been soo short compared to the rest of my group without it! ;0; Thats about it for now xD
If you have any questions about anything, or want to hear about how anything in particular was made or put together, as always, please don't hesitate to ask. I would be really very happy to help you! :]
