FIST OF THE NORTH STAR: KEN’S RAGE 2 - E3 2012 TEASER (by MyKOEITV)

DID I NOT JUST FINISH A COSTUME FROM THIS SERIES??? STOP TORMENTING ME XD XD XD

Finally received a photo from before Masquerade of our costumes, thanks to Chester Huey. This is by far the best one of both of us together at the moment, since D only wore Shin to the Masquerade itself. Realized that it (or one similar) didn’t get over here to Tumblr. Ooooops.
I really want to take some time to do a proper photoshoot of these two at some point. There are some fixes that we both want to do (most of mine involve the buttflowers and the wig…I really need to get some treatment done to it so it isn’t so prone to tangling) before that time though, and we have another project that we need to finish by year’s end that is going to be at least as challenging as this one.Ahh, the life of a cos-nerd :)

fanime masquerade 16 (by TheEverAfterHappily)

The bad news: This video is really overexposed, so there is one important detail that is missing here that I kind of need to explain.

About two thirds of the way through, there is an item that is brought out, that eventually Shin rips in half. It was a quickly-made version of the North Star Army flag. It was the only way that seemed quick and easy to represent Kenshiro in some fashion and was easy enough for the audience to see. Yes, it’s WAY later in the series, I apologize to the fans now and ask for forgiveness.

The good news: It’s one of our better performances :D 

Pretty Yuria photo is pretty!!! I <3 you, elagabus ^______^

Yuria. Done. YAAAAAAAAAY!Taken at : Fanime 2012Cosplayer: DanyPhotographer: Astro (elagabus on Tumblr)
Sadly, D had trouble with Shin and had to get out of the costume, so he couldn’t join me for the shoot. But I’ll post video of our masquerade entry soon :D

Hand is cold and cramped up. But the back of the dress (and the bigger side) is pretty much done. I may do some very fine touchups, but not until all the main work is done. Tomorrow is the front of the dress and the front of the overshirt.  And then&#8230;FINALLY, I can assemble this bad girl.

Progress is progress! Front side, 2/3 stenciled. You can also see where the third stencil is stuck down and ready to paint.

Hoping to finish stencils tonight or early tomorrow and hope all paint is done by Wednesday AM at latest!

Stenciling started. The space at the bottom is intended, as the design is set up to work with hemming in the front when I get to the final assembly phase, The front hem will more or less dictate how the rest of the dress is hemmed, since the back is trained.
The paint is two layers. The first is a custom-mixed blue-white matte, the second is a opalescent white. The opalescent by itself does not color well and therefore doesn&#8217;t stand out against the purple, so it needed that layer to bring it forward.Once the main stencils are down, I&#8217;ll start the detailing phase. Most of that consists of uniting all of the segmented parts (flower stems, etc) and blending them in accordingly, then trimming with blue paint. All goes well, the final assembly will start Wednesday, and will be done by the weekend, leaving only minor details on the menu.I have to cut the stencil on the shirt but I&#8217;m giving my index finger some time off. Cutting the stencils for the skirt caused it to temporarily go numb at the tip. The feeling IS coming back, but gradually. I have to let things fix up because it will be integral to being able to do my handfinishings.

A smattering of progress. Mostly Yuria, but a smattering of Shin too.

hint: if you ever attempt to gradient dye a dress this size: IT SUCKS.

First time putting Yuria’s muslin on. A few more adjustments to be made but I think all are minor ones. Gussets in the underarms for sure, and an undo of an adjustment in the apron….which is being persnickity, by the way. It is being more complex than I expected other parts to be.

Please excuse my scraggly look presently. My “give a hoot” in relation to my appearance kind of went off to swim in the lagoon, and might have gone to play with all the new baby ducks. XD

Using Jem’s shoes for now, as they are about the height I need for a future pair that I will buy later on (finally a chance to recycle a former costume’s parts! Money saved! for now…). In the dress, you don’t see her feet, so I am not worried about the appearance other than having them make sense. Her alternate outfit has…well, it is a blend of her leggings into her shoes, which are very NOT practical here for biological reasons. But these will do for now and I will just find some nice white tights to go with them.

Speaking of…

RANT: go figure after putting all this on I would have to hit the loo.
