DescriptionMatty (TohmaYuki) prompted me to get this cosplay figured out. we didn't expect to have these costumes done and ready to go for another year or two due to other cosplay priorities, but we are already well on our way to finishing, and i would expect to be all set by this autumn 2009. as such, we now have plans to wear them to our first time to The Reactor.
jeans (for backup outfit)
belt - new
gloves - will be modified
trousers - new pair and will be modified
black furry coat - new
still need to buy (materials for):
belt chain (low priority)
re-made vest (the first one is not working out as i'd hoped, but it will have to do for Reactor.)
replacement belt buckle
the first 4 photos posted are from the closet cosplay, Halloween 2008. i'm starting over, with actual effort and accuracy. XD
even with all the sales i've taken advantage of and all the thrifty stuff, this is still going to be my most expensive cosplay to date, and probably ever, because i am so focused on the details. this cosplay will get a lot of use and a lot of love.
also doing casual and pajama versions. you can see my casual! Man. United shirt (props to MRS-Jeevas) in the new photos.
EDIT 11/30/09: new scar makeup, gloves, trousers, boots, and belt and finished coat added to item list.
