1. Series : Guilty Gear
Character : A.B.A

Cosplayer’s Comments :

This is one of my all time favorite cosplays.  If you can believe it, it was actually the first ‘real’ cosplay I ever did.  I put my all into making this.  The key is made from plaster, pvc piping, industrial foam, epoxy, hot glue, super glue, plaster wraps, model magic, and pretty much the entire hardware store rolled into one lol The whole thing is hand painted, including the face, and the stitched mouth pieces are made from clay, for a more 3D look.  It took a few months to complete it and in the end it stood about 6 feet and 3 inches tall.  It was made to be proportioned to my body size as it is to the characters!  It’s about 11 pounds ><  Despite all that, I love my Paracelsus key! <3  He’s my most favorite prop!  The key going through my head was also hand molded and secured into the mesh of the wig.  A majority of the characters body is wrapped in bandages, so basically I’m completely wrapped up whenever I wear this costume.  I cut strips of thin muslin for this because I didn’t think real bandages would look as appealing or be very comfortable.  The skirt and top are made from white denim, metal loops, and leather.  Same for the skirt, and even the shoes.  The key on the belt was carved from wood!  A.B.A is one of my favorite game characters!  I love her weird story and fighting style in Guilty Gear,  so cosplaying her was so much fun!

2. Series : Zone-00
Character : Kujo Saburo

Cosplayer’s Comments :

For this photo, I was Kujo Saburo from Zone-00.  It’s one of my favorite manga and drawn by my favorite artist!  The story and art are very good!  The outfit was put together and meant to look like the school clothes worn by the character in the series.  Despite his normal attire, he usually brings color into everything he wears, whether it’s bracelets, hair ties, candy, or band-aids 🙂  It was very fun to cosplay a character I love so much, I hope you all like it as much as I do! ^ ^ Photo credit for this pictures goes to Brittany Angel Drake AKA Tenshi <3

3. Series : Bleach
Character : Neliel Tu Oderschvank

Cosplayer’s Comments :

People really seemed to like my Neliel costume, so I thought I’d use a different picture of her this time around 🙂  Her costume is made by hand, from the ‘rips’ on the linings of her torn up clothes, to the bone helmet on her head.  Making the outfit wasn’t too difficult, but the helmet took quite a bit of time to complete.  I wanted it to look as simalar to the actual helmet as possible.  This made it quite heavy in the end but very worth it! lol  I hope you enjoy it!  Thank you very much! ^ ^
