Gene and Melfina: Hand in Hand

I was going through A-kon photos again and realized I haven't posted very many Outlaw Star photos yet.

Since our schedules were so full, the only time we had free to wear these cosplays was Friday evening. Fortunately, we got shots from three different photographer friends of ours. However, we didn't have as much daylight to work with, so things were probably more rushed than they could have been.

I think this shot is my favorite from the whole weekend. When we were doing photos with the earlier photographers, I didn't get to have any GenexMelfina couple shots with my boyfriend...I guess I should have spoken up and requested it, but either I wasn't really thinking about it at the time or I didn't want to impose since we already were rushing to get some shots of the whole group before the sun went down.
:iconkuma--san: was such an awesome guy to do photos with. Even though he missed getting shots of the whole group, he still really wanted to get some photos of just the two of us. And this photo turned out beautiful despite the time of day :3

Awh- This is so adorable.
One of my friends wants to do Gene and wants me to go as Melfina-

Your costumes are amazing- would you mind if I asked if you made them or bought them? If you made them- would you mind giving me some pointers? xD

The stuff under the poncho was mostly from my closet or bought, but I made the poncho itself. I just took a poncho pattern and modified the front opening. the light blue piece on the shoulders was drafted without any patterns, and I made my big "buttons" out of craft foam
GothicWaters's avatar
Ah! Alright. C: I figured that's what I would do- was just modify a poncho-pattern. Her actual clothes I could find anywhere- What kind of fabric did you end up using?

And Gene's coat? Was that made or bought? It looks amazing too. O:

I used a knit on the outside, but it's generally a hard fabric to work with since it stretches (I mainly just had it on hand because I got it for cheap). I also had to custom dye the fabric because the original blue wasn't what I wanted (I used a little bit of a purple dye to get it darker).

The inside lining is just a thin pink cotton.

For Gene's coat, I think he used a tan Duck cloth, and it was custom dyed as well (added a combination of tan, yellow, and possibly olive dye, but I can't remember which ones he used exactly and how much of each).

Ah! Thank you so much. C: I didn't ever think about dying fabric. xD

But thank you so much, again. Excellent cosplays. C: I hope ours will come out looking good. xP

This is a great cosplay, I'd love to see more photos of it, if you or Ex-shadow or the photographer have any, or even if you could take another set in those costumes... I've been toying with the idea of doing an Outlaw Star group for a while, and would like to get a better look at your costumes for inspiration.

I saw you two at A-kon, actually, and you looked amazing! Outlaw Star is my favorite anime ever, but working info desk at cons means we don't get to take photos.
I adore your cosplaying!
