Buckets Are Forever by Hatless-Sheep Buckets Are Forever by Hatless-Sheep
Thanks to Alex Kung for this green room photo of Kisume! I believe this was before I went on stage because the wig doesn't look too messed up yet. I ended up winning cleanest construction in the Journeyman division! (I made a Kimono styled top with traditional Obi which you never see because of the AWESOME bucket!)

A little bit about the bucket: The bucket is made from Foamcore board, staples, glue and duct tape. I scored the bored to get it to curve and cut smaller pieces to be the rungs. There is a wire handle. I painted it with a technique that uses two kitchen sponges to achieve the wood grain look

For those who do not know Kisume is a character from Touhou.

How did you walk around with this? did you make a strap on it so you can walk around with it like a skirt, and then sit down to reveal it's a bucket?

It's actually very light so I carry it around by the wire handle or hold the bottom (I made it bottomless for ease).

That's so cool :D, you really put effort into it

Did you paint the wood-texture on it yourself? That must have taken so long to get right!!

Adorable as always!
I always thought this was an ACTUAL barrel when I first saw pictures of it. I know better now... but my eyes don't.

Suddenly, the song "Diamonds are Forever" became "Buckets are Forever" echoing in my head. Cannot unhear :iconjackiechanfaceplz:

Then SoundHolic's "Flying Bucket Adventure" came to mind, [link]

The lyrics are funny xD

And I don't usually see an awesome Kisume cosplay :iconyeahplz:
