About this Costume
Construction Details:
When my sister and I were young, we watched a French/Japanese television program that aired in America from about 1982 through 1984 (yes, I'm old). It went off the air in the mid-'80s, and for years afterward, we could find no trace of it -- no videos, no records, nobody who remembered seeing it. It wasn't until I was in college that I found someone else who had watched the program, and even had VHS tapes of it. Suddenly, I was able to rediscover a fragment of my childhood! About ten years after that, the complete series was issued on DVD, and we could begin sharing it with other people. Some time later, we were arranging a trip through Central America, including a visit to two Mayan cities. Presented with the opportunity to do a photoshoot at actual Mayan ruins, how could we NOT do MCoG costumes? XD So we threw together very quick-and-dirty costumes for Zia and Esteban, packed along our favorite cosplay photographer, and had a blast. (And yes, Zia is actually Incan, not Mayan... but hey, you work with what you have!)
