Finally finished: Gokudera’s Sistema CAI boxes
Just have to glue them to the belt now, but I thought why not present them in a way the manga shows them first, while they are still more mobile. (I’m still tempted to take a picture as Gokudera brooding over his boxes too, as long as I’m able to do that.)
It took me quite some time (I don’t know how long exactly) to make them out of balsa wood, fimo light, glue and acrylics. I have to admit that I underestimated this cosplay-accessory greatly as always. Somehow it happens every time again when I start to work on Gokudera’s stuff…
Still it was important to me to add 3D-decorations to the boxes, which was the greatest bother in fact.
The boxes consist of 336 single parts. (96 wood slides, 48 tiny fimo-skulls, 192 even more tiny bone fragments) I nearly felt like a model maker in the end xD.
If anyone’s interested in the making process in detail, you can find it in my progress blog: [link]
Besides: The shields are just decorations drawn on foil.
The finished cosplay (Gokudera’s melone base version) is to be debuted at Animuc in mid-April 2013. My very favourite version, besides
