My HIM so far.

So I'm making my HIM Costume, for those who don't know, here is what he looks like.
I'm basing my costume on the two version of HIM. The Wikia of PPG says that the pink stuff is in fact, tulle, so that is what I've been using. Forgive the shirt I'm wearing underneath. This is obviously, very WIP, I just wanted to show off my work so far.











NEXT ONE, TOO BIG

I'm not too familiar with the character but I think it looks good so far! I like the ears, how did you make them?

Also your pose is really in character, you look very mischevious haha.

What are you planning to do for the boots?

The ears are just made out of cheap rubber. They seem to do the job quite well though!
Also, thank you, I aim for best poses, and have recently started to put more energy into them.

And the boots, I'll go hunting for a pair. If I can make them, I'll do it, but I think i might just buy some straight up, in case making them turns out to be too hard.

Thanks for the comment!

First of, you have the expression down pat. It's adorable.

I think you should tailor the shirt a bit so it's more form fitting, but that's just my aesthetic, if it's more comfortable to have it looser then I still think it looks fine.

Making boots, or boot covers, especially such high ones, isn't that hard, and it's probably easier than trying to find them (that and they'd be pretty expensive). Just wrap your leg in plastic wrap or paper towels, tape it up then cut it out. Trace it onto a piece of paper then measure a seam allowance and there ya go! Boot cover pattern.

Oh man this is great! I love how you used tulle, it looks awesome.

For boot covers I agree with Kyuushin, making them surely is easier than trying to find a suitable pair.

I can't wait to see more progress!

CorperatePuppet, thanks so much for the complements!
And yes, I will be doing the voice. Hopefully the whole day, if it doesn't bother a certain friend of mine, too much.
Kyuushin, thanks for the awesome suggestion. I purchased some black material today in hopes of making some good looking boot covers. But I really did want pleather, and the supply craft shop didn't have any :/ I actually might end up buying boots anyway, I mean, I got a real corset for my Rocky Horror cosplay.
Lightane, I will have more progress really soon! I just got another 10 meters of tulle today, and the tutu is now being made.

Thank you all for your kind comments!!
