Buh... Uhh... So yeah. This is the cosplay I've been working on for the last two months- absolutely every.god.damn.day. Cosplay of Mistral, from the game Metal Gear Rising.
Some more pics at my fb album-> www.facebook.com/silvia.sillao…
Beware of the photobomber cords and wires.
The last two weeks I've been up until ~4.am. Every.Day. WHEN WILL THIS NIGHTMARE ENDDDDD? D:>
I didn't have a proper summer because of this. >:I
My very first cospaly choise for this year was actually Geth Prime (mass effect3), because I just loveeee the armor design, but around ~20 July I realised... That I don't care about this game. At all. It just came out on PlayStation Plus too and then it was clear...
If I'll make a cosplay, then it shall be of a character who has an epic desing and comes from a game I absolutely love. And oh my gosh Mistral~ I.L.U.~ Such an epic smexed up character full of Metal Gear'ish details~ And ohohoo those hands~ I wanted to do Screaming Mantis last year, but Mistral... Dayum~ 8D
Also, don't have better pics of this costume... Jet. But I have planned a photoshoot... In the very near future. 8D
Uhh.... This is one of 'dem cosplays that started out as a fun cosplay project for the love of the character design+game and is an absolute pain to complete. I wonder why most peeps don't mention the "blood, sweat and tears" part... Especially with big detailed, time consuming cosplays like this... Maybe it's just me then... Yeah, that's gotta be it. I'M SO FED UP. And the damn strap under the breast kept slipping down. >>>:((((
URRGGGGGHHHH! I completed the body/catsuit part in 3 days (only three days, can you even belive it?! : o) and been making those damn hands all this time. DEM HANDS. I love hands tho. <3
These are made in the papier mache way- from newspapers and white glue, filled with makroflex (expansive foam?) and the elbow joints move a little. The hands are removable- the whole connection thingamajig was done with bottles and bottlecaps. Jep.
Not the best idea. IT TOOK ALMOST TWO HOURS TO SCREW ALL THOSE HANDS TO THE BACK THING
Made this for Animatsuri 2013 Eurocosplay qualifiers contest, and... I won~ So, I'm the estonian qualifier and maybe some of you will see me at London expo in october~ Again~ 8D
Also trying to do the armpole and one dwarf geko And oh gosh, you have no idea how much space all the hands take... D:<
HAAAAHHHHHH.... Yeah. This is one of them love-n-hate costumes.
-Next time, don't make a cosplay with 7 pairs of prop hands.
