I'm still not sure how the hell I ended up cosplaying Mako. I think I do not suit his character very well (read: at all) but still I find myself cosplaying him. Curse my friends and my nonexistent spine with the matters like this

Cosplayer: *Lirlys
Photographer: ~Aidu, thanks!

Spiky hair on the backside is missing, scarf should prolly not lie so "stiff" on the shoulders. Gloves should be tighter. then it would be purrrfect! I like the jacket, did you make it? The Jacket could need shoulder pillows though... Oh well, it's still good!

I'm not even sure if that works in a real life.. I tried to make some to the wig but I thought it looked just plain stupid. Idk then. The stiffness of the scar comes from the fabric its made from. I suppose I could have made it from different fabric but that was only one which was closest the shade of red I wanted.
Do you mean the finger parts? Because other parts of the gloves cannot be any more tighter than they already are (or otherwise I couldn't get those on).
Yes, I made the whole costume. And actually there is one pair of shoulder pillows, my shoulders are just naturally that narrow that even with those, the effect is not that big

For the backside of the hair - just rub some gel in your hands (just a little) and then run your fingers up the backside of your head. It should be a little spiked then. If it's too much, you can still pet some of it down again. Try some things out and you'll get the hang of it. Or let a girl style your hair! :D We know how it's done ;3

I'm sure there are scarfs with that tint of red made of cotton or so. That would flow much better.

For the gloves - I'm sure you don't want to make new ones, but just as an idea - you could use elastic fabric, like cotton with a rubber band inside. Or maybe some kind of knitted fabric. So it would get tighter again after pulling it over your wrists. Right now it looks a bit too plastic for my taste. (well at least not natural)

yeah if gel wouldn't make the whole wig a huge mess :c. I don't know how much you cosplay but basic gel just messes up with the whole wig (because it's not a real hair, it's plastic, it just somehow won't dry) :/

But hey; thanks for your opinion and tips, rarely people care enough to give any feedback. I don't think I will cosplay Mako again so there isn't much need to redo anything but anyways ~

How sad. D: Well, yes, but I kinda didn't catch before that this was a WIG. xD It could've totally been your real hair. Lol.
Anyways, pity that you won't cosplay him anymore, you did a decent job with it!

Juu, koska mietin, että jos käy niin kökösti että ei saada animeconin sunnuntaille Makoa, niin innostaisiko tulla porukkaan?
Tosin pituuserot olis kyl aika huimat mut.. :---D
