A new wig + fabric for Masamune

So today I went to the post office after school and picked up two packages. It was a white juban and a new wig I will use for season 2 (aka short hair version) Hijikata from Hakuouki. Funny thing is I was searching for a Hijikata specific wig but didn't find anything I thought looked just right so I wondered "what other characters have a similar hairstyle as Hijikata?" and BOOM instantly Sebastian Michaelis from Kuroshitsuji popped into my mind.

Sebastian Michaelis - Kuroshitsuji (aka Black Butler)
I found a Sebastian wig I thought looked really nice and it wasn't very expensive either so I bought it for Hijikata. Now I must admit there is something about Kuroshitsuji which captures my interest; I've been feeling for quite some time now that  I want to watch it even though it's rather mainstream. Also I heard from Sairu-chan not so long ago that she already has a Ciel cosplay and a Kuroshitsuji cosplay group planned with her friends who live around northern Finland. Group cosplays are always great so that is even more a reason to watch Kuroshitsuji so I could hang around with them in some northern con.. not to mention I've always liked Sebastian's design - red eyes me gusta mucho!!, hairstyle, "penguin coat" lol (seriously I want a coat like that.. if I do him a get a reason to make one hohoho~) and yeah, there just is something interesting about him. If I now watch Kuroshitsuji and end up liking Sebastian I will do him, I would already have the wig too and I need to buy red contacts anyway *coughrasetsucough* so I would get more use out of them also. XD We will see ~

I tried the wig on quickly (read: no cosplay make-up) after I got home. At first I was all "not sure if gusta" but after I arranged the fibers around a bit it was rather awesome.

I also went to Eurokangas with mom before getting home and she bought me some fabric for Sengoku Basara's Masamune Date cosplay. I will use this fabric for the coat and pants.

Masamune reference
The fabric is some kind of denim with 5% elastane and it has this.. interesting touch to the surface; a bit like it would have a thin coat of some kind of plastic on it. It is also a bit heavier and drapes rather well. I think it will be great for Masamune's coat especially. I just really need to start working on this cosplay for real; it needs to be done and documented before next summer vacation I'm going to die. If you remember it was a school project so it's really important I get this done in time before I graduate.

It feels quite different from other fabrics.. but I like it.

Yes of course I could. I know you like Kuroshitsuji so if nothing else I will do it just for you. XD Also possible group cosplay..?

Hohoho Kuroshitsuji ~~ You'd be a great Sebastian :3
And you sure look cool with that wig, though it's slightly unusual to see you with mid-long black hair. Lately it's been either long black hair or short blue hair lol
Huh... Good luck for Masamune. Dat armor...

Valkoinen Samurai said...

It is a nice wig indeed. :)

Joo, yritän pysyä hengissä. XD Toivottavasti, aikamoinen haaste on khyl mutta kai tä tästä jos nyt kunnolla panostan siihen että jumalauta teen tän valmiiks! >8D

Valkoinen Samurai said...

Hohoho thanks! Maybe, maybe not.. can't know for sure before I've at the very least done a cosplay make-up test. xD

Dat armor, indeed. I'm going to kill myself over this cosplay. XD 6 swords oh lord... OTL

Psycho Cat said...

It seem like it would do that on th apic but i like what i see off it.

Yay na XD Also don´t forgett Angie, she has her Soma coss so I think she would like to join in I think.

Ya a possibel grupe sound fun =D

Angie Cross said...

OMG i NEVER thought you would like even watch that anime..cuz its doesnt seem really your style or type of anime if you know what I mean xD;; unless you do like victorian era right? ..but acutally as a big fan of Black BUTLER i think you would make a great Sebby-chan. o3o (Sorry he is called so by Grell-his-so-called-fangirl/boyish. XD;;) Love to see you as him someday or any other black butler chara if that's possible! :3 And Masamune,haha well good luck with that.

Valkoinen Samurai said...

I've always had a slight interest towards Kuroshitsuji but never really told anyone about it. Mostly because the clothing is quite cool and it feels like there's just this dark-ish aura to the show. (I know he's called Sebby lol) We'll see what happens. Need to watch it first.

Angie Cross said...

Oh, I see! Well yeah it is about demon mostly and that kind of stuff xD;;
Okay good luck with watching that and with das armor! xD

The wig looks great! Very good thinking in choosing a similar hairstyle character wig.

Also, the fabric for your Masamune Date cosplay looks very nice! I can't wait to see that cosplay when you get it finished. :D

Valkoinen Samurai said...

Multi-use wigs are always a plus!

Hehehe, I just hope I'll get it finished on time. XD
