A shot of the full costume - with tailcoat, cloak, and battle-shoulder armor.
So this was the midterm project I've been working on for my Body Art & Adornment class. (And also the reason why I'm currently really sick. Ha!) I'm probably going to keep this short...
The idea is, well, obviously a humanoid version/gijinka of Bowser. I spent several weeks choosing colors and fabrics, drafting patterns, and making mock-ups. I wanted to give our good King of the Koopas a fun, sophisticated remodeling.
Everything made from scratch, aside from the wig, gloves and shoes. Some of the pieces are sitting really funny here and there, I need to keep my eye on them next time. x_x
Photos by A big thanks to ~bluucircles for the photos and ~firewolf826 for support. (And uhhh, putting up with my grumpy sick self.)
We hope to get shots outside eventually, but I was rather ill and it was warm out, so we decided on an acceptable inside location.. @__@
