Cosplayer Kitsoru > Costume of Heero Yuy from Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This was tossed together last minute (Sunday before the con, to be exact) to do a photoshoot with a friend. It's not the best, but despite that, I'm actually really happy with how it came out, for something that was last minute. Since I was low on time and couldn't find a green tank I liked, the white tank top I grabbed I dyed with 2 baths of Kelly Green RIT with a little Dark Green mixed into the second. It was my first time dying anything, so that was actually a pretty valuable experience. The wig is a hacked-up Punky XL in #4 and is the first time I've styled spikes with any amount of decency, for the bangs.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Brow tufts. :3 Also, the reason you're seeing photos of me as Heero with random other characters from different series is because this was made for a photoshoot with some LJRP friends, so it's basically a bunch of in-joke photos. This was basically just made for fun.
- Styling Notes
- This was originally a Sol Badguy wig that, when I decided to do this cosplay last minute, I chopped the entire back off of (sob) and hacked to pieces until it was short and layered enough for the ridiculously voluminous 90's hair Heero has. Spikes are hairspray and spiking glue. The top of this wig is perfect for Heero. The back/sides? ..Not so much. Still looking for the perfect Heero wig.
