It's time for a cosplay progress picture soon. I think the white shirt, red sash and blue trousers (or in this case... leggings) are officially finished, including the weathering. I thought about doing that in the end but I was too excited to see if it really would look the way I imagined it. So after some cuts with a stanley knife and using some black spraypaint, sandpaper and dirt it looked totally used and exacty what I hoped to get! Gave me some hopes for the rest of the cosplay again.
I got this great idea of doing some post-apocalypse crossovers with some game or film characters I like.
I really like the looks of steampunk, cyberpunk but also wasteland and post-apocalyptic outfits that people are making here.
Lots of details from pieces of tires to chains and gasmasks and not to mention the wounds and dirt on people's faces but also the somewhat "futuristic"/techno look of cyberpunk. Some games and films have some great opportunities for these themes and I already sketched some out until I decide it's colouring time and colour all the sketches I've made over the past weeks.
I really look forward to start and hopefully look as rad as these people's costumes. But in a way that has references to the game or film the characters are from.
