Cosplayer Stray Wind > Costume of Matt / Yamato Ishida from Digimon Adventure
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This was one of the most random costumes that I have ever worn. My friend Pan is one of the organizers of a major Cosplay picnic that has become a yearly tradition here in Toronto. Thus we try to make and wear costumes that are weather and season appropriate. Digimon was discussed as a possibility for this year at the picnic last year and Pan wanted to re-wear her awesome Tai costume. After Sakura and I got back from Japan, Sakura volunteered to Cosplay as Sora with Pan and I randomly got a phone call a week before the picnic asking if I was willing to Cosplay Matt. If anyone looks at my Cosplay history they'll think I'm a huge Digimon fan. I enjoyed the series but I was never a big fan. XD I did really like season one so I agreed to do Matt. It's not a character that I ever considered Cosplaying and I really don't think I look anything like him. I still had a blast Cosplaying with Pan, Sakura and our surprise Joe (Kevin) at the picnic. Pan and I made this Matt costume in about five hours one afternoon. We bought the shirt at a secondhand store and everything else came from Pan's closet. Pan cut off the sleeves, hemmed and adjusted the collar of the shirt as I sewed up the bottoms of a pair of Pan's pants to imitate cuffs. The boots and gloves were borrowed from Pan's Van costume. My contribution was the wig, which was my original Heather wig before I bought and styled a new one. Pan cut it and styled it in a couple of hours (she rocks). :3 For a fairly cheap and old wig it worked quite well.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This turned out to be unexpectedly fun to wear. I haven't had a chance to really Cosplay with Pan and Sakura since our last Naruto costumes so I was happy to find another trio to add to our Cosplay repertoire. Amanda took some amazing photos at the Cosplay picnic and although I still don't feel like I was suited to Cosplay Matt, I still had a blast. Sora and Tai were too cute for words.
