Here's the first pic of me as CAPTAIN Usopp in all his cowardly brilliance, from Eiichiro Oda's One Piece Strong World!
He’s my favourite One Piece character so I was determined to do his highly-animated expressions justice. I truly enjoyed strutting around in this guy’s boots!
I’m a novice cosplayer, so I relied on simple methods to bring this colourful, eccentric outfit together. His helmet was lots of fun, and Kabuto (the slingshot) was probably the fiddliest part, taking plenty of wire, elastic, reticulation piping, hot-glue, spray-paint, ingenuity and perseverance to get it all done. The nose was challenging … and a little painful! Oh, and yes: the rest is just me and make-up.
Mutiny Go! Cosplay ([link]) had a fantastic time stomping around the local Botanical Gardens for our photoshoot with the incredible *Risachantag (kindly assisted by the amazing ~rallamajoop and ~Shastachan) at the beginning of June.
**********UPDATE********** Thanks to all who voted for me in the 2012 Otaku House Cosplay Idol Competition. I didn't get through, but the support I received was really nice, so thank you all very much! You're all very kind. xx **************************
My cosplay as Luffy in his Strong World adventure gear! This was taken by the lovely *Risachantag during our One Piece Strong World photoshoot at the local Botanical Golf course last month. It was super-fun and we had a fantastic time running through the gardens and perplexing the mini-golfers.

I made it for the final 10th round of the Coloration Contest at Pirateboard in 2011 and yeah.. it took a long time. ^^ It is a very simple coloration, because the deadline came faster than expected.^^ and again the background..
