''Shut up and walk, dear.'' - Joshua
Joshua. Yeah. One of my favourite characters for a long time, from one of my all time fevourite games.
Also one of the cosplays I have wanted to do for a long time but had never gotten to.
And then me and a friend decided to go to the gamescom, so I wanted to do a video game cosplay.
And I don't play too many different games, so the choice was rather easy.
The outfit itself looks really simple, doesn't it?
It basically is, but the devil lies in the details.
I found it pretty difficult to find a wig in the right colour. To me he has ashy blonde silvery hair, and I wasn't too thrilled with most cosplayers choices. u_u
Finally I found one I like though.
The pants were simple to aquire, and the shoes as well. I just exchanged the shoe laces for black ones and tied them in the way he is seen to wear them.
The shirt was a bit more difficult again. It seems to actually be quite hard to find a shirt in that colour WITHOUT front pockets! In the end I bought a cheap slightly darker one and bleached it to my satisfaction. Then I cut off the long sleeves and used white bias tape for the details.
To me his eyes look like a dull dark purple, so I am using my Rose Lalonde lenses again.
To have his cell phone, which is also his weapon, I bought a cheap silver foldable mobile and spray painted it orange. Couldn't find any better reference pictures of it anyway, so it will do.^-^
It really was fun to wear, even though hardly anyone recognized me. xP
Now I want a city shooting~
