Hakouki Shinsengumi Kitan

"Whether I live a long or short life, there are only a few things I actually can do.
I will kill any who oppose the Shinsengumi. That’s all I can do. That’s especially true if I’m going to die soon. Staying here means the world to me."
Once upon a time in a skype-chat a great opening was posted…This specific opening was full of handsome guys and even better: They were all samurai *-*. The poor girl couldn’t help herself but to switch into fangirl mode and to watch the whole historical fantasy drama. Complete till the very last episode. And of course she couldn’t prevent her heart from being stolen by one of the guys xD. And when she was looking into the mirror afterwards wondering she saw it: Oh, yes… the eyecolour, even the haircolour O.O, yes… xD
No, apart from this exaggeration, of course this eyecandy had to catch my attention and not to forget: history! I learned quite a deal about the real shinsengumi browsing the web afterwards.^^ And then the more or less historical-correct Japanese samuraiclothes and those skyblue haoris *-*. I simply had no chance from the beginning xD.
Not to forget: Okita xD. Although he seems to be an absolute mainstreamcosplaychar, I just love his way to handle things, his resolve to make most of the short life that was destined for him, his loyalty, his way of reading ppl as others read books, his subtlety, his composure although he actually is a hothead and last but not least his sometimes a little mean taste of humor (I like teasing ppl xD).
This cosplay I have to admit was to a great extent sewn by a good friend, Hajime-kun namely ;) aka Kishire :). Therefore: I don’t deserve any credits if there actually should be some. Also the wig (which was unfortunately darker than the ebay photos showed -.-) was styled by Kishire.
Besides: This is the animeversion just yet but most likely I'm going to upgrade it to the game/artworkversion (aka paint the patterns onto it).
The real debut will be at: Dokomi 11
Edit: Painted the golden pattern (which took me about 2 weeks ^^''), styled 2 bokken ... now just Haori, warajis and the white pattern are missing.
Edit: Haori and headband are ready although I most likely have to improve the latter. Warajis and the white pattern are still missing. But going to change that till next spring. Real upgrade cosplay this one xD
