Yaaass your Tokoyami is looking awesome!! I'll be FOR SURE going as Jiro instead, so we'll have to snag some pics! :D

Thanks everyone! ^_^

And yes! If you end up going as Jiro we DO need to take a pic! Hopefully Viz's programming works with our individual schedules!

Totally! I'm just banking on the autograph signings this week, but I've prioritized my friday/saturday for it so far. I just hope its not the same day as the panel if I can only line up for one ;) I do have all of my materials for Jiro though, excited!!

I finished my cosplays! There are definitely things I could improve (a LOT in some cases) but I'm officially done and ready for the Con! :)

UPDATE: Literally had a mini-cosplay nightmare yesterday since my Tokoyami mask would not fit in my luggage.

Anyways, I decided to make a smaller, more airline friendly mask to bring to SDCC (thankfully I had extra foam) so if you see a bird that looks exactly like this (and probably doing stupid dance moves), then that is most likely me. I actually like this version a lot better since it doesn't look weird from the front and this will probably be my go-to mask from now on. Anyways, see you all there! ^_^

So after two years of working on his A New Hope Stormtrooper costume, my son finally got to wear it at SDCC this year.  Afterwards, he was able to get his 501st Legion basic approval.



Still so much to do.  Now the work starts on getting higher levels of approval.

Awww... how cool is that!  Tell your son that the costume looks great!

What are the other levels of approval? XD

Thanks, for this Stormtrooper costume, there are three approval levels, Basic (level 1), Expert Infantry (level 2), and Centurion (level 3).  Each level contains increasing on screen accuracy requirements.

There is so much detail that gets covered by these requirements and we have had to make numerous alterations and adjustments to the costume just to get to Basic.

Dang, that's intense.  @[email protected];

I really do give kudos to cosplayers of all types but especially those who put in a lot of time, detail, effort, and funds into their costumes.  When they complete their costumes, it looks incredible, but so much work goes into them to make it look accurate and effortless (which is a feat itself, ha ha).

So my wife and I did not finish either of the two new costumes we each had planned for SDCC this year, but we did finish them in time for Dragon Con.
