Since I finally got my hot knife (perfect for cutting foam boards…if they work) & I’m about to receive my sewing machine in the mail, I can now officially start working on these cosplays in earnest vs. stock-piling the materials needed (well, at least for Baldren). Of course, as mentioned before in previous posts, I won’t really get started on my Sengoku Basara cosplay until this Friday (7/5/13) at the earliest but I decided to show all the potential candidates anyway.
Anyway, I couldn’t decide to do this in posts or pages, so I went 50/50 with doing posts on all the progress for both of these cosplays then making separate pages with links to all their respective posts so I can basically have a master list of all the related posts for both cosplays. Additionally, since this will probably be my most hype/overly complicated cosplay extravaganza to date where all the ballz will be to all the wallz, I want to document this as much as possible with both pics & videos when need be, especially for the light show which will be Valkyria Mode Baldren. Since there will be a delay with when I start work on the Sengoku Basara cosplay, since the poll hasn’t run its course yet, I’ll be starting with & completing Baldren first, then Sengoku last; most interesting first & super easy in comparison last. These are probably going to be the first cosplays where it is absolutely essential I start on them as early as possible, since there’s so much to be done, & also will probably be the first cosplay (namely V. Baldren) where I spent so much on a cosplay, but, hey, I wanted to do a glitz & glam cosplay and glitz & glam can cost a lot of $$$ ~.~
So, hopefully someone finds this oncoming post series moderately interesting or finds it very useful if they’re also trying to do a similar glitzy & glammy cosplay.
Happy cosplaying everyone!
