Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor
Last Updated: 09-20-2012
Well, this is my newest cosplay, Soushi Minashiro from Fafner in the Azure: Dead Aggressor. It's a fairly obscure Anime to be sure, and I don't think anyone will recognize me when I debut it at Anime Evolution this year. However, he's a favourite character of mine, so this had to be done.
I am pleased to say that I DID have some hand in making this cosplay. I was the one who went out and selected the fabrics, I also helped with pinning and cutting, and of course I was creative consultant as usual. It feels good to say that I did SOMETHING with this, I was there for each step of the production process, and man did it take a while, 12 hours in total. We chose a basic woman's suit pattern (for my figure) and adjusted the collar, we also sketched out ideas for the stripes and inserts, that was a little more on the complicated side, and I am not sure I can even explain it. The patch on the arm I hand drew, then took to a print shop to get it printed on fabric for me. Admitedly I would have loved to have it embroidered on the sleeve, but I just don't have that kind of cash... and sadly, I can't do it myself. The hair is just my own, and I don't care if people say it's a shade too dark, Soushi is a brunette to me, I've seen quite a few people with blonde, or strawberry blonde wigs... and it looks okay, but I still see his hair as brown. Sure it may be a shade or so lighter than mine, but it's brown.
