So we just got back from London. We were at the London Expo and we had a great time! We met up with some of our DA friends and got loads of free hugs!
This is me as Ein from Cowboy Bebop, hugging a girl dressed as Akamaru from Naruto. While we were hugging she started laughing and said "This is the softest hug ever!" and I started laughing too.
I made the head out of foam and fake fur, used silk organza for the eyes, and the lips, tongue, inner ears and nose were made of a childrens craft foam called funkie foam. The body was made of fake fur and I used Simplicity pattern 2853 for the basic shape.
This is Stephen, my boyfriend, as Hercule from Dragonball Z. We saw a guy and a girl dressed as Gohan and Videl and just had to get a group shot. Sorry bout the crappy photo, my phone hasn't got the best camera on it.
I altered a bathrobe pattern and used quilters fabric (mostly because I couldn't find a dressmakers fabric in the right colour) to make the gi, and a previously drafted pattern for the baggy pants. He got stopped by so many people who wanted a photo of him
This is us with the dog head off. I bought a real red dog collar and had a dog tag engraved with 'Ein' on one side and 'London Expo Oct 09' on the other side. I got both from a key-cutting place near my work and you should've seen the look on the guys face when I told him the tag wasn't for a dog, it was for me!
Sorry bout the crappy photos, I just wanted to share my creations with ya'll!
