Hooray, a Juuni Kokki thread! I started last week on Youko's samurai armour that she wears at the end of the first story arc. ^^ I did allot of research on the Online Japanese Armour Manual before starting on it. I'm making it all out of posterboard and Mod Podge, and have most of the pieces already cut out, laminated, and sealed. I want to cover each piece with a layer of plastic, and someone suggested using the plastic sheets that quilters use for making blocking patterns. Next time I'm at the fabric store I'm going to check them out and see if they'd be suitable. ^^ I've also attempted Youko's sword, but I failed...epically. My dad seemed very excited about trying a fibreglass sword sometime, so we'll be spending some quality father/daughter time prop building this summer. ^^

Oh, and for anyone else that needs reference images, I've found a screenshot gallery that's been pretty useful to me : 12 Kingdoms Gallery and Fanlisting Minitokyo's gallery is pretty good too, it's mostly postcard book and calendar scans. ^^

*chortles* There is a lot of crossover! I blame the blinginess: conquer one challenge and you'll want another, or some sort of handwavey logic like that. Either that, or the massive ridiculous amounts of fabric involved.

I'm looking forward to seeing how your armour turns out, Silent -- looks interesting so far! It's always fun seeing how different people approach similar projects. And hurrah for more JK love!

(Got armour in my future too, albeit that Risai's novel-cover armour is beat all to shit. That's for after NDK, though. Been working on and off on her sword, though, and that's coming along better.)

True, true...I've always been drawn to the insanely detailed costumes made from seas of fabric. ^^; I'm toying with the idea of doing Youka's nyosen uniform too, just to have something comfy to wear around the con when I don't feel like schlepping around in Caterina or my French court gown. x.x
Your Risai looks great, I can't wait to see the armoured version.

I also like the fact it's getting a lot less lonely cosplaying TK...much fun.
Last year at Fanime, I was alone. This year we had 2, though we almost had a few more.
Last year at AX, there were 3. This year....we'll see!

Awww, I wish I was still able to go. Bloody nonexistent job market. It'll be interesting to see if anyone recognizes the character at A-fest this year. ^^
In actually progress news...I've finally managed to redeem the epic fail blade of cardboard doom. Sort of. I've made the crossguard for it and now just need to make the hilt before I can paint it all and make it spiffy. I still have to wait to continue on the armour since I can't get my hands on the plastic I was going to cover it with, but at least there are other things to work on until then. ^^

Twelve Kingdoms!! Ahh!! *o*
I'm planning on cosplaying Rokuta sooner or later (hopefully sooner). I love him so much. xDD Such a bratty taiho. It's awesome to find a thread on here for this, it deserves so much more love.

I'm working on Queen Sai/Saiou for Otakon and am horribly behind already! I need to finish dying all the silk tonight and tomorrow so I can get started on the embroidery ASAP.

... I would just like to register a moment of complete glee and dancing in my chair as to how this thread is growing. It's awesome seeing this show getting more appreciation and cosplay-win.

(And yes, this year's AX ... mwahahaha ...)

*weeps*
Oh that I could be there with a queen Sai with my Sairin....
Please post pictures after Otakon, good luck with the costume!!
It might be one of those, keep working on it over a period of time costumes?

And yeah for another Rokuta!

Here is a progress pic: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2202381/ XD I'm kind of keeping this cosplay a secret since it'll be in a competition, but nobody knows the series aniways, haha!
