Gintama Cosplays

Hey there, just wonering if anyones planning a Gintama cosplay.
Ill probably be making a Gin-san outfit for my friend and Id like to compare ideas one the 'how tos' before I go for it.
Gin-san is quickly becoming the largest cosplayed manga over here. Last con I saw ONE Edward Elric, but there were at least 7 Gin-san's and it was a rather small con.

Sorry for the double post, but the last post here was 7 months ago =P
Ive got an entire page of Gintama cosplay graphics up for anyone who might need them.
Got Kaguras shirt symbol, shinpachi's magedas spoof shirt symbol plus his Otsuu fan club captain symbols (back headband and collar writting) plus quite a few other things.
If there even ARE Gintama cosplayers out there im sure youll find it helpful... but Im not so sure your out there *grin*

I was just thinking about starting a Gintama thread myself, when I decided to be smart and search through, and I found this thread. I watched the OVA a while ago and I'm watching the first episode now and I'm quite impressed, even without the subtitles, from what little Japanese I can understand. And after reading the preview in Shounen Jump USA, I'm looking forward to the graphic novel release, whenever Viz decides that they are going to finish translating it. I've been thinking lately about cosplaying as somebody from the Shinsengumi to Anime Nebraskon instead of Maes Hughes of Fullmetal Alchemist, because I love the Shinsengumi and their military uniform is neat and looks a heck of a lot easier than the Central Military uniforms o_o;

Gintoki is awesome <3 xpXDeathXqx, Gintoki's costume seems like it is just a yukata, just don't put your arm through the right sleeve and leave it hanging. I think it would actually be easy enough to make, and definitely cool to see. Kimono/yukata patterns are quite easy to find and I think there might be yukata instructions online where you don't even need a pattern.

And, go Jan! Your cosplay site rocks, I've used it before. Even more awesome than it already was now with the Gintama stuff <3

O_o Theyre translating it!? god help them, that should be interesting.

For making Gintoki's yukata try looking up cold dying by hand. Using squirt bottles works nice. And look up Batik dying, its all about putting wax on the cloth and its a great way to make sure the white part in between the swirls stays white. Otherwise you might have dye running there.

So happy to see Gintama is catching new fans, it really is the most hilarious manga I ever did read.

I'm making Kagura and even if i hate wigs, i'll have to wear one, the thing is her hair color, i've seen pink and orange haired Kagura's that actually look good, so, which color suits better Kagura? pink or orange? (to look for a pinkish/ "orangish" wig X_x)
Also her hair accesories X_x any ideas for them?

same question about the hair accessories >.< i want to do kagura as well i'm going with pink hair cause in the anime the hair color is closer to her cloth (red color) so i decided pink over orange. but i'm just getting started on the accessories and have no clue at all on how to start

Oh wow, you make a fantastic Gintoki! Your wig is perfect! I can now die happy.

I LOOOOVE Gintama and I really, really want to cosplay the series. I had Gintoki planned for YaoiCon this year. I just hope I can pull through with it.

Hope to see more Gintama cosplays in the future!

;D I'm planning a Kagura cosplay sometime soon (After Anime Expo)
Does anyone have any good pictures of her costumes? There are several different ones (that i've seen) and I'm kinda confused on the designs
