So what have I been thinking lately? I've been thinking about making videos! You remember I've made couple ones before, but now I have pretty much ideas about cosplay talk and tips I'd like to share with you in more ways than just text posts. There are many things what would be easier to show more visually and moving as in videos and I want to know are you interested? Although I'm not any professional or anything but I have a lot things I've learned myself and I want to others know too and thought of making videos more this time feels a lot of fun! I have a huge list about themes I want to talk about, especially now when I have more time - but do you have some specific interests which you think I would help or talk in videos? Let me know!

Oh I've forgotten // Airfield Princess


  
I really did forgot to talk about Desucon FROSTBITE which was in JANUARY? How come it took me half a year to make a post about my Airfield Princess (aka. Hikoujoki) cosplay even tho' I made a promise to tell something about my progress? Anyways, better late than never! I also finished my Allen Walker -costume at time but I was too lazy to wear it at Sunday of con, so maybe I'm gonna get it photoshooted some other time. But what I'm gonna share with you now is some Work in progress - photos of my Airfield Princess!

Here's the reference. Screenshot from the anime and concept art of the game. 


Materials I used were the good old ones - EVA foam and craft foam as you can see! Black parts in the costume seemed pretty dimensional so I decided to work with two different thickness of EVA and cut out all the edges so the different pieces will look smoother together. 

The "robot"hand or what you like to call it, is simply made of craft foam alone, glued onto a glove. Airfield princess has this huge tank on her hand normally, so there is alternative version of her having technical robot hand inside the weapon. I didn't make the tank myself because it would've not fit the car at all. And yeah, I was too busy to even buy black gesso haha. 


I literally glued almost all the pieces to this swimsuit-kind-of costume I made, but leaving there spots where I can use velcro tape, so the costume would be put on and take off. Also I sew the zipper on the side AND couple of buttons into my crotch because I like to have the easiest way of possible to use bathroom you know. 

But yeah, here are couple photos from the con also!
