Monster hunter 4 Legendary J Anchor. by Shoko-Cosplay Monster hunter 4 Legendary J Anchor. 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^^

Ahah, je continuerai de le répéter mais vous étiez vraiment géniaux ! xD Autant sur scène que cosplay parlant. Vous encourager était un réel plaisir et vous le méritiez amplement !
Il me faudra des années avant d'atteindre ce niveau ! si j'y arrive x)

Merci vraimentc'est très gentil, on a halluciné des applaudissements, honnêtement, la scène tremblait sous mes pieds, j'avais jamais vu ça, ni même les nombreuses personnes venues nous féliciter après.

Le cosplay est un hobby " difficile", avec ses histoires etc et des fois ça donne envie d'arrêter, mais le cosplay est capable de nous faire vivre des moments tellement uniques à la fois que...
on reconsidère souvent tout ça.
Et au final, tant que ce que l'on fait apporte un peu d'étoiles dans les yeux aux gens, ça nous donne l'envie
 de continuer.

Merci ^^
 ça nous touche beaucoup de te lire :)

This is still one of the most incredible pieces of costuming I've ever seen. The detailing is absolutely immaculate not to mention the paintjob. Can't wait to see more shots!

Thank you very much :)

The paint job wasn't really complicated, just a light shading with black acrylic.The most difficult part was really the sewing :/ but, I wish to sew more now, to do little shunya yamashita's characters, it is often sweet girl, sexy with awesome designs and colors.

I am working on a new monster hunter set too, again sewing instead of armors ( we lack of foam in France :/)

I promise to do more shoot of legendary anchor, I really sad to have only few pictures, we were too exhausted for more and all photographers were busy the contest day :/

Je pense que c'est la première image qui montre les détails du costume que je vois. Je pense que 50 et 45 étaient un thème dans le costume ? 
Très beaux effets de peinture :D

Merci^^  en effet le costume a été fait pour les 20 et 45 ans de v et W jump ( un magazine populaire au Japon) il y en avait vraiment partout à faire.... <_< l'enfer...

mais ça vallait le coup, j'ai adoré ce costume et j'espère qu'on pourra faire un vrai shoot, là ce sont des photos au sein de japan expo en quelques minutes ( on étaient completement épuisés).

Ouiiii un shoot :D
Surtout à corps et esprits reposés... 
Je comprends pas comment vous avez passé à travers, on dirait le combat final d'un manga quand les héros sont à terre et donnent un dernier grand coup

Je crois qu'on a négligé le coté fatiguant, on y a été comme d'hab, on a morflé mdr

j'ai mis au moins trois semaines pour retrouver un sommeil normal et la forme.J'étais une vraie larve après l'ECG ahah ^^'

C'était vraiment su sport, honnêtement, je préfère les petits défilés, tu passes et hop tu fait tes photos ^^

There are so many details in this costume. All I see is time and dedication when I look at this.

Thank you my dear, It was a real challenge, I don't think to redo the experience ^^'  I love to take my time, work slowly... I don't really love " rush" on a costume.

Now, I really made a long break, I was a little disgusting of cosplay after such a rush work.

My chains under the arms weren't at their place :/ ( not the time to do a better fixation) so, chains are under the armors ^^'  I really wish to do a photo shoot with all in perfect condition this time :)
but, where to find a pirate boat? XD

There is always room for improvement and most cosplayers are their own worst critic.

They have a pirate ship at Otakon in Baltimore :D fav.me/d4ggfln

Saber est un des projets que j'affectionne le plus mais j'ai du mal à trouver la viscose bleu roi pour sa robe :/ idem, la dentelle de folie sur la sous robe blanche, du coup c'est la recherche des matéraix qui est fastidieuse, sinon, l'armure est deja quasi faite depuis 2009.
