My 2nd FY Costume! OVA 2 Tasuki

Hullo everybody!
I'm here to finally get my Tasuki costume critiqued. Fun, yes?
I worked especially hard on this one, I'm so proud. ^_^ (I love Tasuki)

.fileCOSPLAYTASUKI - a bad pic, imo, but you can see the boots and pants (what u cant see in the other pic)

The second one, the close up, is much better, and my wig is on correctly, and I'm not doing a mock-SailorMoon pose o.O

Oh, my goodness gracious, I love that wig! It's perfect for Tasuki.

Your costume is AWESOME, as well. I had to find a reference picture for it, since I didn't remember it off the top of my head, and I compared the pictures... You didn't forget one little detail, didya?

Wow.. the only thing I can possibly suggest is to make a cover for the belt buckle, as you can't see the "inner workings" of his. I think that's just about the most nitpicky comment I've ever made on this board. XD It really doesn't matter whether you change it or not, because your costume looks so great! Wonderful job!

What kitten said and have a professional Barber edit your hair and then style it with light gel and finish it with glossy spray. The costume is amazing!

*worships at the altar of the best Tasuki costume she's ever seen*

I particularly love your fan. It's so cool...

Is the closeup pic showing sparkly things that are really in the wig? If so, they might be a bit gaudy, and I'd advise not having little sparkly things in the wig. But that's IT.

Thanks everybody, after this year's Seras costume I plan to to Tomo from Fushigi Yuugi. Xd haha that should be interesting.

The shiny stuff in the hair? It was gold tinself :/ Yuck, I know, I even tried my best trimming it out (that didn't work much. So I just left it. Many people liked it, surprisingly, lol)

Only thing I can really say is to style the wig more accurately, however I'm not good at wigs at all so I can't speak too much. The sparklies did catch me as odd however, but seeing as you tried to take it out and couldn't get all of it out.. there's not much I can say. Great costume! It is one of the best Tasuki costumes I've seen so far aswell.

everyone mentioned the wig, but I think it just needs to be a little shorter. I loved the costume, I think I saw you at Otakon? There can't be too many shiny Tasuki's out there.... I like the tinsel, btw... looks great.

There's a 70/30 chance it could have been me--there were a bunch of Tasuki's there that I met and hung out with---but I was the ONLY 2nd OVA Tasuki there as far as I know *_*

There was one Eikoden, and a bunch of TV versions...but I didn't see any OVAs. How sad (and yet cool at the same time)
