Blazblue - Taokaka - Hug me by Kurai-Hisaki Blazblue - Taokaka - Hug me by Kurai-Hisaki
Taokaka - Close up

I actually started this cosplay a couple months back but never got around to finishing until crunch time for the convention in guelph this past weekend. Finished it in 2 and a half day with =Yume-ka's help! Yay for teamwork and sweatshopping in my basement! We spent 50% of the time looking for scissors, fabric, pens, etc because it was so chaotic =___=.

The paws are double layered with stuffings from the inside of a pillow between it. One pillow of stuffing on each hand! Then there is an inverted/invisible zipper on it so that I'm not completely handicapped for the con and can unzip myself. ^^; My arms were so tired from carrying the 2 pillows all day, I was surprised at how sore they made me even though they were so light.

The braids were made out of yarn (which I thought looked better than a wig because it was fuller) and I handpainted the zipper parts and buttons. I had to handpaint the orange zipper thingy like 5 times because I couldn't get it to match that weird shade of orange on the hair ties OTL. It still doesn't match *facepalms*
I need to remake the mask so that it looks rounder one day and hopefully put some ventilation in it so I don't die of heat =___=... but I love this costume since it's so easy to put on and I don't have to worry about how I'm smiling or how to do my make up! Also love the paws and my tail that looks like a giant Q-tip. :giggle:

Thank you to all who helped me get around at the con, feeding me food and for helping me walk/see/do stuff! Without you guys... I probably would have fallen down the stairs OTL... so lots of love! :love:

Nope! That was :icontraumacentregrrl: and :iconmattys-mello: I believe. I was from Homestuck. I actually did get your picture this time but I was completely covered in grey makeup so I wasn't recognizable at ALL lol.

Oh! Haahha, ok. I'm super bad at recognizing people, especially when I always walk around with my glasses :( So be sure to poke me more often and say hi xD

OH TRUE - I always forget that you're not wearing your glasses! I approached you and :iconyume-ka: for photos but I was kinda like, "Crap...they probably don't recognize me..." and slinked away after taking the pics so you wouldn't wonder why this strange grey person was trying to talk to you LOL. The disadvantage of full face paint. :c
