Umm, I hope you don't mind to tell me uvu I was wondering about the fabric you used for your Nice cosplay. I'm cosplaying him next month and I thought your fabric looked pretty good. Thank you!!
to be honest i went with the cheapest fabric i found at joanns. i can’t remember what was what I should really start writing this stuff down so i can answer you guys better.
but im usually almost always using cotton and cloth type fabrics. im almost certain my yellow and pink were country classic cotton or something.
its pretty comfortable to wear and stuff so as long as it comes out looking nice and is comforting to wear then id say that.
though in the future if i remake him im thinking of actually using a vest material of some sort.
I hope that helps in some way though!
convention is coming up this weekend, im hoping to get some shots of my kano, and samekichi. and maybe more nice because we all know my feelings on nice.
but yeah if not then selfies i suppose.
I lied I like this angle of my face for samekichi that’s it.
reblogging an old picture because i don’t actually show my face in any of my samekichi cosplay pictures on this blog. so here is the makeup for samekichi i suppose.
I LOVE your Samekichi cosplay! I am personally wanting to cosplay as Samekichi for animefest which is in August 2015 so I have a year! I was wondering how you made yours if you could give me some tips I would really appreciate it because yours is for sure the best I've seen!! (:
ahhh oh man thank you so much seriously asdhjaksd. PLEASE SHOW ME YOUR SAMEKICHI WHEN THE TIME COMES I LOVE TO SEE MY FOLLOWERS COSPLAYS I honestly was very sloppy with this cosplay because ive been trying to save a lot of money i wanted to make it as simple as possible. like having an on hand sweatshirt pants and boots, and i just went to goodwill and got a shirt that looked pretty damn close. the necklace i bought online on esty from a link my friend sent me. (if i remember the link ill be sure to post it later) but i ended up getting 10 pendants for pretty cheap. anyway. same with the patch all from etsy though i feel i should have found a bigger one that suited the arm better than the one i currently have but as i said i was trying to save time and money.
generally bargain hunting and manipulating clothing i already had on hand is all what i did.
the tails i made for sal and samekichi…i actually…failed 3 times making sal after making 1 prototype that turned out perfectly. honestly i think my best choice was using any type of fabric that could stretch a bit but wasn’t too thin. like performance fabric did it for my samekichi. I seriously just gave up near the end and took the easiest way possible which was cutting out two tail halfs that you could literally tell they were shark tails, sewed them together, (for samekichi i sewed on the other shade of the fabric on before sewing both sides together) and threw some stuffing we had from dissected old stuffed animals that we were planning to throw out soon.
the tail is held together by a belt and snaps. its sturdy and i can wiggle around a lot but once in a blue moon if its snagged or pulled hard enough one side will snap off but its not a big deal and its not annoying or a hassle.
the fins on my head i made, were also kinda winging it because my first attempt at them failed with craft foam, and model magic, i ended up just using some of my wonderflex and melted it together to make a fin, and threw it on a headband because im the type of cosplayer that likes to reuse any and all of my wigs for other cosplays.
as i said before, sal and samekichi were a huge money saver, i was pretty lazy with most of it until the tails which caused me such pain they don’t even look that great in person with visible rips and pretty poor seams because of the struggle. but i think it gives it character for a trash character and one that almost constantly gets his ass kicked by everyone haha.
when in doubt, try! and if it doesn’t work in the end. try again! you don’t get better unless you make mistakes, and you learn from those mistakes and improve. so im pretty proud of my piss poor samekichi and im really glad everyone seems to like it as well! i just hope you all feel the same for my friends sal cosplay i made for them when the time comes!
what con are you going to? :0
just a local one around in wisconsin, called geek kon.
SO YEAH IF YOU BY CHANCE SOMEHOW LIVE AROUND HERE PLEASE COME SEE ME!
otherwise im so sorry for my lack of money to travel.
I FINALLY FINISHED SAMEKICHI WHO WAS CAUSING ME A GREAT DEAL OF STRESS DUE TO THE TAIL. EVEN IF HES NOT QUALITY IM SO HAPPY HES DONE BEFORE THE CON
im sorry for my inactivity lately, im sure you all really don’t mind, i haven’t had a lot of very good days with weather, and time is very thin for me lately. so expect less actual cosplay shoots. and more closet cosplays.
im not into a lot of the new series everyone else is into but feel free to suggest any character you think i should give a shot. since makeup practice and other junk is something i need to do.
I haven’t posted anything in awhile. But I’ve been playing a lot of atelier escha & logy lately so I decided to see how I would look closet cosplaying logy
Did a makeup cos test for my long haired tomoe and frankly I’m not satisfied compared to my short haired tomoe.
ahhh your cosplays make me so happy!
ahfjahrejwa ;A; YOUR SO KIND, NO THANK YOU FOR LIKING MY COSPAYS.
;w; i hope to continue to make myself and you guys as well happy doing what i enjoy doing. AND YOU GUYS TOO SAME FOR ALL OF YOU
