About this Costume
Construction Details:
V-Force is my least favourite Tyson design and also season, but whatever cuz Tyson is my fav character ever and my sis made Maxie sooooo..

The wig is from my old Tyson wig, just refurbished. It's originally made from two long dark blue wigs from cosworx when the colour first came out cuz seriously I had been waiting for wigs to come in that colour since I've been trying to make Tyson costumes since 2003. Okay, anyway I ripped out the glued in bangs from the last styling and then redid them neater. Gale force winds at Anime North 2013 kinda wrecked them tho so I'll have to fix them again before rewear.

The yellow shirt is a modded shirt from American Apparel in colour 'sunshine yellow' because that is my perfect shade of yellow.

Jeans are also from AA in asphalt and 4 sizes too big so they're just the right amount of baggy,rolled up.

I patterned the vest and sewed all the random seams he has in it. I have a stock pile of red wool twill for all of tyson's costumes...... >_>

Gloves were a weird thing, because I've had like 5 different versions of these gloves over the years and this time I found a close enough match in fingerless leather gloves on ebay, bought, then sewed the wristbands out of blue leather I have stock piled for Tyson as well (from a XL 80s skirt I ripped apart for the fabric). Same leather is on the hat which was a red baseball cap with mesh back. I glued on white piping. done.

Shoes were a torturous event because I really can't stand how ugly his shoes are in this season but I made them and then the shoes I made them on were slightly too small so now I get blisters when I walk in them. it's an ironic situation. His socks are always seen because he's a NERD IN THIS SEASON UGH so I just wear white sports socks with this.

Simple and sweet. Hardest part was the vest to get it all properly lined and everything and I'm mad because I like this version the least and it's the best sewn one out of all my Tyson costumes lol. Gotta remake the other two.

Personal Thoughts:
I hate these shoes
