End of Movie (Red Jacket)


Last Updated: 01-04-2011

Oh my goodness, this costume. I had WAY too much fun with this one, both in making it and cosplaying it! I'd seen Ponyo about halfway through the year and had been having trouble deciding on a costume, but then I saw Fujimoto and I knew I had to do it! The costume itself was easy enough to make (cravat, 20's Circus costume jacket, long red wig, dress pants and shoes) but the thing that I was proudest about was the prop I made to go along with it. I decided that simply dressing up wasn't enough, and I wanted to actually say that I'd put a decent amount of time and effort into it, so I made a resin bubble with a trapped Ponyo inside! I used Crayola clay to scuplt my Ponyo, and then primed and painted it with acrylic paint. After that it was simply casting it in clear resin and hoping it turned out, which it did! I've no doubt that I'll be wearing this costume again, but I need to do some major reworking/repair on it - the 20's circus jacket I used was very cheaply made and fell apart after just 3 days of wearing it, so I need to remake the jacket somehow. ): One of my to-do's this year, I guess. Still my favorite cosplay out of them all, though!
