    For anyone who’s interested in seeing up close how Nihon Genji has aged in 2 years, this is what his current condition is like and why I’m itching to do a remake sometime. Foam armor (especially made by a noob like me) don’t keep well, but the lesson learned here is, white automotive paint, when exposed to the sun constantly, turns yellow and chips off even with a top coat. It’s neat that he hasn’t completely dissolved into a fine grain ash yet. :crylaugh:

    Some assembly required... actually a LOT of assembly required. Almost nothing is actually attached right now for painting purposes. I’ll have another pic tomorrow when it’s all sealed and primed! And you can juuuust see a little @sksprops HD foam peeking through there.

    Just got my Tokoyami pics back from @cosfame and as always they turned out AMAZING! Great work as always! 
If you’ve been following me for a while you know I was planning Iida for Tekko. However one night I decided I should drop Iida so that I would be able to finish him with plenty of time and not rush it, winding up with a half assed result. So talked it over with my close friends and decided why not do Tokoyami!! At first was going to do an edgier looking one but then realized I had all the clothes for his casual wear from the manga! 
So I quick got some pepakura files of Etsy and got working. Sealed the whole thing in plastidip then used a satin black paint for the head (should have used matte in hindsight) then hand painted the beak and under details white then yellow. Made the eyes from white mesh and painted on the rest of the details. 
As for Dark Shadow I used a pipe cover that I was going to use for Iida, some steel wire, and a smaller version of Tokoyami’s head. Sealed the whole thing with @creaturecastrubber neoprene (will be talking about that in another post but OH BOY I LOVE THIS STUFF) tinted purple and then brushed on some black 2.0 to give it that textured look that it has. 
Really like how it all turned out, especially being so last minute. A few minor nitpicky things id change, mostly being my hair sticking out, and the seam on the top. Was never huge on kwik seal for this reason but figured I’d give it one last shot annnd it did the same thing so I’ll be sticking to @flexipaintuk foam putty which works pretty much the same way but covers up the seems REALLY well. 
All in all absolutely LOVE how this turned out especially being made the literal week of the con!!

    Anyways, it was fun Karoshi! It's nice to have a smaller chill con where we aren't running around like crazy people the whole time! I got to meet up with a bunch of friends, only half I which I remembered to get selfies with because I'm terrible 😅
But whether I got a picture with you or not, thank you for an awesome time~ -Ash you were so fun to run a panel with and we should definitely hang out more.
-Nicole you are always the best con buddy. I'm glad you found lots of awesome art ♥️
-Geannina thank you for geeking out with me on DA stuff 🤣 your art is beautiful and I'm glad I now have a piece of my own!
-Matthew your scar is incredible and gave us a good laugh -Sue, Lucas, Harley, and HK thanks for accepting me into the judging fam, I had a lot of fun and enjoyed talking with you all! -to all of my other insta buddies that I got to meet up with I love you, you give me life, and if you got selfies with me I want them! ♥️♥️ -COSPLAY WISE-
Rouxan didn't completely fall apart which is great. It's a little warm to wear but not as bad as other cosplays. Not having to wear a wig was incredible and I'm gonna have to do that more often. Tattoos saved loads of time with the temps, the contacts were comfy, and I'm generally happy with the results. He's not finished and I now see the areas I want to improve on, but it was a good test run!

Karoshi con 2019 was awesome and we will see you again in 2020!
