youre so awesome
and the cosplay is very oro-ginal :P
Ah, alright~. No thanks necessary.
And in that case, I'll take my place as a fearing worshipper and be done with it. Kekeke.
No worries, I just tend to be very thorough in my methods and, consequently, my explanations. As that one slogan says, "you got questions, we got answers." ;-)
Ha ha, and thanks! I do my best to be wicked, insidious, and white-skinned.
And the best ninjas (especially evil ones) remain pleasantly single and look out for themselves, don't you know 9_9 Who needs lovers and crap when you can have worshippers who fear? It's really quite Machiavellian.
Ah, right. Didn't mean to challenge your measurements, was working solely off of aesthetic interpretation. Regardless, the costume is stunning and you portray the character frighteningly well.
I notice that you've ignored my proposal, I'll assume that's a no~. :weep:
ichi: I wouldn't know about the manga, because I modeled this outfit on how it appears in the anime. (I've seen up through episode 135 or so in the anime, up until the long filler arcs are about to begin. However, I haven't read nearly that far in the manga yet - at this point in time, I left off JUST before the Chuunin exam starts.)
As for the haori's length in the anime, I have a ridiculously huge folder of Orochimaru screencaps on my harddrive, including shots of that particular costume from a variety of distances and angles. Anatomically speaking, based on the screencaps, the haori would fall to about the base of Orochimaru's butt, give or take an inch. So, the base of my butt is where my haori stops. If it needed any extra length, it wouldn't be more than that 1 inch. (Another thing to take into consideration is that Orochimaru is 5'11", whereas I, regrettably, am only 5'5". So, I have different vertical body proportions than the character does.)
Orochimaru-sama. ;_; Marry me~?
However: The haori seemed a bit longer in the manga. Perhaps I'm just remembering it wrong?
the evil snake dude wears pink...i never realized that until now...
Wowsa! Perfect Orochimaru -- gives that perfect fear and spook effect!
I love your Orochimaru (^_^) Great job on all the details and makeup!
Thanks everyone XD
Solaria: Yeah, I tore myself between my sense of anal accuracy, and my love of detail...so I end up taking the haori off from time to time to show my snakes off.
ChibiKakashi: Well, I definitely plan on rewearing this costume in the future. This one's one of my favorite outfits that the character has, and this costume technically wasn't done as of AX.
WeretHekau: Yeah, we had to hold that pose for a while because the cameras kept coming too XD (And Dr Pepper rules. It's my ambrosia.)
KorosuAkurei: Mad props to crowbarzero for giving me a hand with all that white and making it solid; to Sizer for doing all my eye makeup; to Cicatrice for bandaging my hands; and to my socks for staying up all day without sagging beneath the kimono hem.
