I'm doing an Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) cosplay for a convention at the end of April and thought it'd be neat to share some progress pictures. I'm aiming to essentially cross-play as this badass (short) dude: The catch? I'm building the harness using actual leather. :x So we'll see how that goes. Done - Boots Done - Pants Done - Belt (it was very difficult to find a double prong belt) Done - Jacket (although patches are iffy) Todo: Harness Todo: Skirt Todo: White shirt & scarf Not Doing: The 3D gear. Not enough time, nor enough space to wield it at this particular convention. Here's my riding-esque boots all dyed darker and modified. :) These are actually not leather, and are some weird... something or other. It only looks like genuine leather because I darkened it using leather antiquing gel. Fun fact: on my boot test strip, another kind of dye reacted badly and turned bright green. One of my many templates for the harness... I ought to have leather for the straps before this weekend. Then the work shall intensify. My fingers are going to hate me.
