Halloween Party Prep 2012

Mimi decided to throw a big Halloween party for her coworkers at our place since many of them have never experienced this part of American culture. We had to leave a great impression I decided to let out a bit of my otaku side and make japanese culture themed custom costumes (cosplay) for the event. We didn’t hold back for the decorations either.

Me and the Mrs We had a buncha fun thinking out the design and making these. A first time for us. Our costumes: Gundam Banshee for me and Domo for her.

Gundam Unicorn Banshee almost ready for some costume party action. Final material upgraded to foam so I could play with slightly more complex curves. The cardboard mock-up was great for sizing tho.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. I am really impressed together with your writing abilities as smartly
    as with the format for your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did
    you modify it your self? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thank you!
