Monster hunter 4 Legendary J Anchor 1 by Shoko-Cosplay Monster hunter 4 Legendary J Anchor 1 by Shoko-Cosplay
Hi.
During one full year we worked on our ECG projects.

But, we failed twice, first and second projects.
I think we wanted to do something too complicated for us and, it was really hard to keep faith and feel comfident about ECG.

Finally, 3 months before the final and a new fail, I heard on random playlist " up is down" from Pirates of the caribbean 3.

And, I saw a thing in my mind, like that...as a film with a captain and his friend in trouble on their ship, it was fun!
I wrote the trip I made and submit the idea to Jerome.
And...we changed again our plans.

3 months before ECG final, let's do pirates!
For the choice of costumes, it wasn't complicated, I wanted to do the felyne legendary J anchor, it was on my planning for 2014.
For a better respect between hunter and felyne size, Jerôme made the felyne, and I made the male hunter ( my first crossplay!).

The costumes were really complicated because the sewing parts, finally, it was okay and " clean work" for me. ( miracle?)

The difficulty was with all the pirate faces on my armor and the hat from hell...
I spend lot of white nights on my costume and arrived exhausted at Paris. Finishing the costume at the hotel.

Again my legs troubles too...

With the exhausted body and mind, it was complicated to speak easily english with people but it was okay, they were all lovely and friendly.
ECG wasn't a contest, just a funny event I think, and I am happy to enjoy it.

Even some fails during the skit with the falling sword and shorter fighting dual sword because of jerome's placement on stage, it was really funny and people saw that joy on stage! It was just crazy to ear so many applauses and cheers o_o.

All contestants were awesome and I was happy to meet them^^

It will be really nice from you ^^  for the moment the planning for Japan expo is not write but we plan to do our " hobbit" cosplay group for this event and  two solos ( cecil from FF IV) and maybe for me Kirin set or jinouga from monster hunter.

I actually work on Thorin's suit ( I really like dwarves ^^')

thank you for your kind words :hug:

SUPER TRAVAIL ! Tout simplement génial! 
J'était en face de la scène pour la finale des ECG et franchement .... je n'ai rien a redire ..
J'aimerai bien avoir votre savoir faire pour faire de si beaux cosplays en si peu de temps .
Enfin bon tout sa pour vous féliciter de cette performance, encore bravo ! 

(edit: Je veu bien deux trois coups tips pour la création d'armure genre les matériaux que je devrais utiliser . Parce que j'ai pour projet de faire lagann de l'annimé gurren lagann et je sait pas trop comment m'y prendre =/ , Merci )

Merci ça nous fait vraiment plaisir :)

Pour les tips bah c'est pas évident à donner derrière un écran :/ mais tu peux utiliser du plastazote pour faire ton lagann, c'est peux être un peu trop ambitieux pour débuter mais je pense qu'en reflechissant bien au patronnage des pièces et proportions c'est faisable.On avait fait le casque du lagann en papier isolant et ça allait donc bon xD ( en 2008)   pour le plasta il y a celui de caltech :)

Even with the failures on stage we tried to continue in funny mood and... wahou so many kind comments and audience cheers, it was the first time we felt so intense on stage.Usually, audience is not too much into cheer or applause at Japan expo.So, I feel again my heart beating in my feet o_o

I adore the concept too, in Monster hunter 3rd you can see the " jolly roger" set, it is similar without too much armor, the set is low defense however but really funny :)  We wanted to do something different, I am glad you like it, thank you for the kind message :hug:

Je regarde et re-regarde votre passage sur scène avec le même émerveillement, je m'en veux d'avoir raté ça sur scène mais j'ai rarement autant admiré une prestation et des costumes. TOUT était juste parfait, du point de vue du spectateur (ou de la personne qui regarde ça sur youtube T_T) C'est juste un spectacle motivant pour les cosplayers (moi aussi un jour j'y arriverais èé) et arriver à de telles merveilles de costumes en trois mois (et beaucoup de nuits blanches) c'est... Dingue.

Félicitations pour votre premier prix, vous le méritez vraiment ! (et qu'on me réponde pas que vous méritez pas ces compliments èé je les retirerais pas, je le pense sincèrement !)
Et puis bon courage pour tous les costumes à venir !

Merci c'est vrai que c'était super dur, et de tenir des heures en costumes de 7h du mat jusque 15h et quelque alors qu'on est déja crevé des nuits blanches pour finir les costumes, mais voir les compliments et réactions des gens nous a fait oublier tous ces moments difficiles et on a gardé que le meilleur :)

En tout cas merci, ça nous touche beaucoup :)
 nos prochains costumes seront " simple", on a besoin de se remotiver doucement mais on promet de jolies choses pour Japan expo :)

Oui, je confirme !
J'ai tenu un peu plus de 2h avec la mienne à une manifestation médiévale. Et je n'y suis allée que vers 18h.

Aw  en plus faut faire attention à la deshydratation, 2 heures c'est enorme o_o
 respect en tout cas!

Jérôme a mis le felyne que pour la scène et quelques photos et il était à bouts, on étaient tellement fatiguées avec le rush pour tout finir à temps, le trajet, les repetitions, le fait de pas manger beaucoup...

du coup nous ne sommes pas prêts de refaire une mascotte je crois bien ^^'

C'est vraiment pas évident les mascottes.
J'avais ma mère en guise de helper qui me donnait de l'eau régulièrement. Bouteille + paille = combo gagnant !
J'ai fait un basilic mythologique avec mâchoire articulée donc c'est plus vivable qu'une tête close. On peut ouvrir la gueule de la bête pour réceptionner de l'air frais et de l'eau claire. :)

D'ailleurs, j'ai une question technique.
Quelle position avait t-il dans la mascotte ? Il est bien plus petit que l'autre personnage. Est-ce qu'il était comme accroupi à l'intérieur ?
Dans ce cas, si la position n'était pas confortable, je comprend pourquoi il ne l'a pas gardé longtemps.

:iconshoko-cosplay:
Shoko-Cosplay Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Désolée de la réponse tardive.Il est accroupi dans la mascotte c'est pour ça que c'était dur pour lui de porter le costume dans cette position et avec la chaleur.

:iconsa-chan1603:
Sa-chan1603 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Je m'en doutais. :)
Je ne voyais pas comment il pouvait être si petit autrement vu la forme des pattes arrières. Je compatis à sa douleur.

This, is, AWESOME!  Man the cat suit must have been SUPER warm to wear, and your costume looks to have a lot of layers too! I love your weapon prop, it's so cool!  Congrats on a super effective crossplay!

Thank you Adekii, yes it was really warm for both, the weather was surprising hot -_-

It was a pain to wear it during long hours.
I am really glad if you like the result :)
