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