Hi

The only pictures I could find on the net was those two I took at the comic market this year.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a pic of his back

Well, I THINK there's an anime coming out. I saw a poster for it in Newtype I think it was. That would help a lot if it was. Personally, after playing the game, I hope it isn't a TV series. It's so shallow that it's only suited to a movie or OVA.

Unfortunately, most action games are really short on storyline and heavy on...well, action obviously. Though given Grave's background and Gungrave's artwork as a whole...I'm sure there'll be a couple more people cosplaying him when the game is released. Nice pictures of that cosplayer, btw!

I've got a general idea on how to create/find most of the apparel for the costume, but I'm at a total loss on how to create the coffin. I have light-weight lumber to possibly use, but lugging that around during the day might get cumbersome... but at least I wouldn't have to worry about it falling apart; unlike a paper-mache' one. Any ideas on how to make Grave's coffin (without grave robbing!)...?

hmm youknow I did want to make the coffin myself but Im also at a total loss. I was thinking I might make the whole thing by whatever means necissary, without regaurd for the weight and then covering the whole thing in a latex and making a negative hold perhaps? then fill the mold with fibreglass.. its ROCK hard and super lightweight when it dries.. but very frustrating to work with...

Actually, this is the perfect time of the year to find supplies to make various costumes...with Halloween rolling around, you could probably do the same thing I did - which was rummage various Halloween shops for supplies. I happened to come across one of those novelty heavy cardboard/lightweight wooden coffins, so I'll probably use that as a template of sorts.

However, I can't seem to find a good picture of Grave's back...the portion of it where the tails of his jacket are. I'm trying to alter an old trenchcoat into Grave's overcoat. Help? :\

Oops, I just checked some more of the links posted and saw the details in Grave's coffin. Sorry for that.

Like digital cactus, I still don't have a PS2, so I don't know much about the game. Does grave's coffin has any interesting properties? (ie. does into some sort of special weapon like Wolfwood's cross punisher?)
