First sketch post


So as promised I have a sketch of the costume. It's not a picture of one of the sketches I made like I said but I just quickly drew the front of the costume.
So excuse me for the badly drawn ...drawing :P 
So here goes:

Sorry for the "watermark", it's just a matter of principle.
It's really poorly drawn, but it kinda remembered like: Oh shit! I promised this! Alrighty then, let's just make it quick XDThis hereby I am ending today's post. Hope you enjoyed this short (for a change ;] ) one!

The basic idea

Heya :D

Here's an update of some ideas I had in mind for the costume
So I already figured out a while ago, okay some two or three weeks ago actually.
I already made sketches, ideas, picked the materials I'm gonna work with and I actually got all detailes figured out.

Usually the main part of the costume are of course the clothes you're gonna wear. Sure, you can go around, walking with a keyblade but that doesn't make you a Sora/Roxas. But if you would dress up in for example Sora's clothes everyone will recognize you...or at least, most will.
:s drifting off again..
My design for the the costume is a kimono with very broad sleeves (not exactly a traditional kimono for that would be too complicated for me, so the basic kimono-design will be modified). The length will be to the middle of my shinbone. On the kimono I want to make some red marks, like amaterasu has and some extra.

I only want the marks on the sides of her torso to be on the kimono. Beside that I want some extra marks which I came up with myself (I'll post a picture of one of my sketches in another post as soon as I can)
In the next post i will be showing you what other ideas I had in mind, because there's more than just a kimono!!!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and for now:
So long!

A warm welcome


Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog! This blog is about my first cosplay-adventure and the entire process. Excuse me for any failures grammarwise >.< I'm Dutch so my English might not be perfect.... Back to the point (sorry ;] )
I'll be posting on this blog about my first cosplay until the end of august 2014.
I'm doing this cosplay for a convention in Holland, namely Abunai!. (Yes an exclamation mark, it's supposed to be there).
The character i'll be cosplaying is Amaterasu from Capcom's game Okami.
I chose this character because I LOVE the game. It's one of my favourite games because of the style and the beautiful storyline. I would recommend it to anyone who can get their hands on a playstation 2 or a wii. Okami is all about the Japanese culture and it's mythes and legends. Amaterasu is the main character in the game, she is the goddess of the sun. (Not just in the game.) In Okami she is a wolf and since I cannot turn into a wolf (or anything else for that matter) I'm going to do a gijinka version (human version) of her. Of course one could make a fursuit, but that's just not what i feel like to do. I'm not going to say anything else, since I kinda wanted this to be an introduction to this blog...errrr it's kinda long for that, but what the heck! Just hope any potential readers don't mind! :D
Thanks for reading!

P.s. If you have any tips, compliment or questions, feel free to approach me!
