Ok so a friend told me last week that she was indeed going to cosplay Jam Kuradoberi from GGX at Katsucon, who is one of my favorite characters and was my one condition for making Ky Kiske. As far as the actual costume goes I want to make the same color/ two-button version of Ky, which won't be that different thankfully (dark teal instead of blue, and brunette instead of blonde) but will be different enough from the normal Ky.
Pictures ( some are fanart but you get the idea):
Color- 1 2 3
Sketches- 4 5
Before I got started I wanted to ask some questions/opinions...
1) Are there any parts that can be done by altering patterns? It would be much
easier personally instead of going from scratch. To me it looks like the inner part is almost a lightweight trenchcoat or jacket, and then would there be a pattern for the top part (I want to call it a mantle but that's probably not the right word)?
2) Gloves/Gauntlets. The belts around them are easy enough, but any suggestions for the rest of the stuff (stuff that should be plastic but most likely won't)? Boots could do the same if it would work, although I'm thinking boot covers for those.
3) The sword. Any thoughts for materials? Maybe lightweight wood, although I hope that would be alright with staff.
Sorry to be spazzing guys, it's just that even though I'm usually good about doing costumes when it's close to the wire this one may take awhile if it turns out well, and at least half of the month will be spent at college. ^_^;
, will there be any other GGX(X) people at Katsu? I know there were a lot last year and I took pictures of a few...
