Entire suit and Kuroneko-sama was sewn by my mum.
Was cut according to the way Nicolas D Wolfwood's clothing fits him in the Trigun manga. (i.e fitting tightly at the waist and joints, being slim fit, etc.)
The suit was gathered at the waist and joints, and shoulders padded and raist slightly, so that my silhouette/shape matches that of the character, instead of just looking like a normal guy in a suit.
The Cross Punisher was built by me.
It is the second type of Cross Punisher that is seen in the anime. Had to make it so that i could assemble and dissemble it quickly and easily since it would not fit in the car as a single piece. Used Pine wood as the core, and cardboard boxes to create the shapes that would join to it. Polystyrene was used to create the triangular bits. The punisher is still missing a few details which i will add before its next display.
Plastic nerf/dart guns were bought on the debut of the cosplay. (It was fun to shoot things)
Could not use formal shoes cos they hurt my feet.
