I have to honestly say I came to your gallery from the AC cosplay thread for Otakon 2006 to see if you had any pictures of Rude up yet and then saw this.
WOO! Akira cosplay! *Dances with happy* Excellent job and YES! Put up more pictures!!! :0)
OMG AKIRA!! That's freakin awesome!!!! I'm doing Kiyoko for ACen 2006! ^_^
Heh, I didn't realize so many people liked this costume! Now this just makes me want to update it all the more... Like I say in the costume description, it was sorta a whim one made up in about a week. Next time more effort in everything but the helmet which I'm satisfied with.
And by the way, people give me great looks when I wear the helmet now.
Wait, YOU'RE THE CLOWN GANG MEMBER COSPLAYER?!?!?
DUDE, I FREAKIN' LOVE YOU!
AKIRA COSPLAY FOR THE WIN, MAN!
Heh thanks. I really want to redo pretty much everything except the helmet which I think turned out fantastic... The arm armor works, but is missing the spikey things... The shirts look kinda cheesy with just fabric pain, was thinking of three options: spray paint for "gang'ish" look with the shirts tattered up more, emabroidered, screenprinted.
Still, I loved doing it if for nothing else to represent a classic.
