@Tails- thanks Very Happy

@chiken_skratch- I love my Garry wig! it's so fluffy. haha naw, I just get ansty when I don't have things to do

anyhoos, some progress I guess

I finished up most of Killua cus. . let's face it, his cosplays are dirt easy haha. I deliberately made his outfit chunky and shapeless, which was weird since I'm used to fitting things nicely. But I look like a little boy at least!

Spoiler:
 

and with fully working short pockets <: since he's almost always putitng his hands in his pockets xD couldn't make the costume with out them~

@PIe- you're adorable

and some work on Sesshou~

I've made and lined the under kimomo
Spoiler:
 

and started painting the red patterns on his sleeves. I opted to smudge the patterns, like the textures in the manga, instead of keeping them a clean line like in the anime.

I love how much effort you put into the under kimono even though you'll only ever see tiny strips of it, great cosplay dedication, lol. And those painted sleeves!!! Very well done and I like how you smudged them instead of the straight lines. You are going to be one hot Sesshoumarut though, both appearance and body temperature wise haha

SUDDEN PROGRESS

I remade the sleeves Razz because I'm a horrible perfectionist like that ( that and I actually screwed up but shhh ) Also I swear it's a nightmare to paint on white. Anyhows, the top kimono is all nicely lined and finished~

The sash is done, all hand painted and made it out of 9 parts. It's completely fake because. . for the life of me I have no idea how a double tied bow WITH particularly painted parts would be tied.

And the poofy pants have 2 metres of interfacing sewn into them, so they stay poofy Very Happy

Spoiler:
 

I played around a lot with his black armour. At first I was using this orange foam/wetsuit like material. I was sealing and spray painting it, but in the end the paint job cracked, and ended up being really stiff and annoying :/ I was also paranoid the black would rub off on all the hardwork I'd done on the white kimono ;;

So, I went back to my favorite fabric store, and found this weird black, gridded foam stuff! I biased around all the edges, and man, it looks 100x neater than the orginal paint job on my other armour :'D

The kimono and it's patterns look really really good. The flowers inside look really even and from the photo the colour look even at well. The bows fake??? Well it doesn't look like it lol.

@brunetteyes - thanks!! Lining can be such a drag, but itís worth it in the end haha

@Seakittens - Ohgod. UM. In Napier we have this store called Arrons Emporium ( I think Welly has the equivalent called Peteís Emporium? ) and basically itís a shop that sells EVERYTHING. And since they sell everything, they donít bother to actually name their rolls of fabric Razz
Honestly, I was just really lucky in finding it, and I kind of doubt theyíd sell it elsewhere. .

but hereís a close up of it

Spoiler:
 

so it has this kind of gritted pattern on it, with a thin sheet of foam between the two gridded sides.

What have your made your armour from? Because I would suggest either using craft foam, or styrene ( since I know Welly sells it and itís super awesome stuff )

@chiken_skratch - thankyou!! and man, you would not believe how much stuff I fake on my cosplays haha

doing the last few things for Sesshou vwv

I finished all his spikey armour, which is bolted and velcro-ed to the black kendo armour. It ended up a little bit heavier than I orginally planned it to be so. . whoops.
The shoulder piece below is made from foam, paper mache, clay spikes ( the thing that added the weight gdi ) and layed with gesso that I snaded back until smooth

Spoiler:
 

and some pictures of Tenseiga~

it was made with a cardboard base, wooden dowel, masking tapped, gessoed and sanded till smooth.

I'm off to AX in less that two weeks! And I'm in the middle of finishing Levi from Titans for it : )

I borrowed the jacket off Icarus, however am making the full harness and probably some boot covers. I used about 10 metres of this vinyl strapping stuff, and still didn't manage to make the full harness! I'm just missing the leg straps, buuut since the boots cover that, I'm giving it a miss haha.

Anyway, I have mad respect for the designer, he pretty much contructed these outfits so they're fully functional irl. I discovered that pretty much every strap holds up something when I thought it would slip off~

Spoiler:
 

still not quite done, need to buy some more snap locks.

I thought of making some kind of tutorial after, just to show how on earth I dressed myself in it and where to sew what parts.

I managed to survive my first ever AX! Most of what I did and saw are on my FB page and tumblr, but I'll say a few words on here too I guess vwv it was MASSIVE, I was really impressed with the guest line up this year, and the cosplayers and photographers I met and made friends with where just lovely. I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE MEH.

This was my line up for the 5 days vwv ( I did Killua twice ) I picked really simple outfits since I just wanted to take everything in and enjoy myself for the most part. If I get the chance to return next year, I certainly want to take more detailed ones!

[Slinky's Sketchbook] diary of a bishonen - Page 2 AX

I haven't sewn since I got back home, but I have been playing around with make up. Really it's only been this year that I've taken make up more seriously I guess, and after looking at all the American cosplayers and being slightly inspired, I decided I need to put more effort into it vwv

If you ever think you might not suit a character, just remember that makeup can do wonders!!
Spoiler:
 

on a side note I'll be cosing all those boys Preview/Ball/Saturday during Auckgeddon
