This is one of the best cosplays I've seen, ever. I love the animal crackers in the background.

Oh fish paste, I can't believe I didn't come and say hello! I saw you but.. I didn't put two and two together apparently. Haha. It was my first AnimeNEXT, but with a little more planning next year, I'll probably come back. ^.^ I haven't planned to go to Otakon this year.

This cosplay is really fantastic, you did such a good job! If you don't mind, I have a question about your wig? Were the modifications done via ventilating the lace front or did you use another method? I've never seen a hairline modification that looked so good!
Reply
:iconrequiem-rain:
Requiem-Rain Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Thank you so much! I'm so glad my Kanji has gone over so well with everyone. As for the wig, I started with a lace front and tried ventilating but the lace/mesh was too fine so I couldn't make it work. I used a different technique found here: [link]

I'm pretty satified with the look, though it could always use a little cleaning up (cosplays are never truly finished lol). I hope this helps :)

Haha, I don't mind at all. Two cosplays, hopefully! Equius Zahhak from Homestuck, and Kanji, someday. But it's probably going to be a long way in coming because I adore his character SO MUCH and I want to make sure I do him justice c:

I feel you when you say you want to do Kanji justice. I spent probably 9 months making sure everything was as accurate as humanly possible. But I'm glad I did.

arda-wigs.com has relatively cheap lace fronts if you wanna start with that, but once i found a reeeeeally cheap lace front in black on ebay that I've been saving just in case i need it. For Kanji and Equius I would start with a lace front unless you wanna cut back the front wefts to get it to lay flat, but I had to make a hairline for Mikoto and a non-lace front worked fine because it sticks up instead of being slicked back.

Tradanui Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
I was definitely planning to go the lace front route for Kanji )I've been researching Arda's wigs for a few months now), but I think I might experiment with my options for Equius. Thank you so much for all of your input! I definitely feel a little more prepared for when I start on those wigs this summer. c:

I had his outfit custom made by a seller on TaoBao, and I'm in love with the work they did, but doing TaoBao was kind of a nightmare. What do you mean by singlet? If you mean his shirt I had it printed by bluecotton.com

I found vectors for his regular skull and flaming skull on DA
