Blazblue - Taokaka - Hunt Begins by Kurai-Hisaki Blazblue - Taokaka - Hunt Begins by Kurai-Hisaki
BlazBlue - Taokaka - Hunt Begins

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:
