Rokuro preview + My Desucon journey starting soon!

Today soon after I woke up I figured this day is my last chance to do a Rokuro preview before Desucon. Sure, the eyewrap thingy isn't done but who cares? :'D  Besides, I noticed some things when I put it all on.. namely that the eyewrap isn't as long as I thought it would be; I could wrap it 2-3 times around my head which led me to the conclusion that if I was to finish it (read: fold it in half and use a straight stitch to close it) I would lose half of the original width.. and this is not so good because of the thing not wrapping as many times around as I had thought so I need the extra width to make sure it really covers my eye. Yeah. With that said I think I'll keep it "unfinished" for now. I might go buy more fabric to add length to it another time

By the way I've finally got the mirror mounted into the new apartment so now I could take some preview photos alone. Sorry about the photos being mirrored (everything is reversed..), the mess in the background and the yellow lighting. Oh well, enough rambling, le photos coming in!

I still just see Saitou with a damaged eye lol
Very chill cosplay to wear.. and everything for it is from my kimono closet w00p!
Oh, and one thing - Rokuro sports violet eyes but because of this being a Sunday cosplay I don't think I'll bother with using contact lenses. The reasoning? It would be a hassle after the con is over because I will be traveling back home north and yeah, I don't gusta the thought of wearing contacts during a long car trip or alternatively removing them in a) a crammed con toilet b) in some random gasoline station or whatnot stop along the way. Just.. no, especially considering I'm still pretty new to using contact lenses and it's so important to have clean hands and stuff. Just not worth the trouble I think.. but I will for sure wear contacts whenever I have a proper photoshoot with this cosplay someday.

Well well, seeing how my Desucon journey starts already tomorrow evening I guess it's safe to assume I won't write any more blog posts until after the con sooooo..  

And now, I'm outta here. Nose turned to the south and on my stomach in 3.....2......1.......

Looks good! I'm looking forward to seeing more con pics (other than your cool Saitou one on FB) and hearing how the con went. =)
