XD It seems so long since I last was in this thread.
All my plans got completely thrown around.
I started working on Yamazaki because I had some free time and then one weekend before a con I found myself done with the purple top of Heisuke's normal outfit and was like "Hey! If I can this much done in just a few hours, I should be able to pull off the whole thing until friday!"
... And thus I sewed Heisuke's outfit including armor parts in three days ^^°°° (It turned out a bit to big, but I'll fix that until the end of the year)
There have been pics too, but I didn't get around putting the cos up here. I'm planning too thought.
Only the wig seems kinda weird. I have a small face and thus it seems to be eating up my head a little, I think. And I had to leave my hair open, since I DID get the ponytail done... but the weight pulled it back of my head and I didn't have anything to fix it in place, so I decided it would be fine this once.
And I had a small 'fail' moment with the 'dark red' fabric color I bought... Instead of the color on the package - which would have been the PERFECT dark red - it turned out magenta (which is more dark pink then red). u.u
Awesome thing of that weekend: I met up with HAKOUKI COSPLAYERS <3 other than me
Western Hijikata Toshizu, Okita Souji and Saito Hajime. Unfortunately on the day where I was not there as Heisuke. BUT Souji and Hajime where there the next day as well - in Rasetsu version :3
We even got a small quick photoshoot done <3
In my love I've almost finished Yamazaki's outfit and also did the Shinsengumi cloak except the white rope. I'm currently looking into what I can use to make those metal plates.
Heisuke has just an 'empty' plate - perhaps it's just a forehead protector? - and Yamazaki has quite a scratch across it... I'm kinda contemplating checking our building center if there aren't super-thin metal plates somewhere. If not, I dimmly remember there being some sort of metallic foil in my school time and will try to locate that...
Aside from Heisuke in normal and Shinsengumi cloaks, I've also been eyeing his calender version <3
I love Heisuke's long hair and in that work it seems to be emphasised enough.
Thought I have to admit I dislike the pink-white pants... why did it have to be pink? -.-
Oh well :3
Forgot to mention: I'm doing Susumus ninja outfit first, but i've been eyeing the green kimono-style one as well <3
