Wild flower 1 by Shoko-Cosplay Wild flower 1 by Shoko-Cosplay
Hi :heart:
This is my latest costume.
I began in 2009 my Cover girl from Wild flower, the second art book from talentued Shunya Yamashita.

This costume wasn't very easy because it's a cut plan of the high of the girl, I should create the under design for the armors, the sword and the back.
The difficulty was to create something in the Shunya's design from myself <_<
And yes, it was very hard to elaborate something in his style.

The sword was a challenge with the fine details on it.I spend long months of work.

The painting was hard too because I wanted to create relief, not only a " black costume", so i used black, grey and purples tones.
The wig was a cut and assembly of two ( my wig from rathian monster hunter and a blue for Rei Ayanami).I create shading in purple and light blue, and the little flowers in foam ( creamousse in french).
The beads are from an old jewel in plastic.

I was surprise by the result last day. The contrast between colors, the result of armors... it was a big big surprise for me.
I was ( and it is very rare) happy of myself.

The most beautiful thing was the prize I won, I was sure it will be my friend in his freaking skull knight armor...so, when I eared my name I just can\'t believe it, I won a sewing machine, I was so happy I though I just cry u____u
My own sewing machine was cheap and burned around the light.
So, I feel so happy, it was like a dream!

I really enjoy Shunya Yamashita, I was very happy to do this costume, I like the colors, the feminine aspect of the armor... I spend a great time with all my friends, so thank you very much >o<
it's the best christmas gift I can received!

Thank you for the kind comment thank to that I recognize you! You were judge of ECG! I was in the audience this day :3 *watch* for that sword it was a bit complicated because the illustration is cut, I draw and create myself the bottom sword design ( and character armor) it was difficult because of the particular Shunya's style.I wanted something close to his perception but yes, I am not Shunya... I spend a long time for drawing all the stuff ^^

Yes, it was the most beautiful show I saw *_* I was happy to be in audience instead of on stage as usual ^^ it is another kind of pleasure when you assist to people passion during an event. Wild flower was my first " creation" on uncomplete design... now I do a little shunya and I create the bottom of the rod because it is uncomplete too xD ahah thank you for the watch back <3 will you come to next Japan expo?

It is fun to judge, even sometimes the choice is difficult. For ECG I am selected for finals, it was a big surprise...but it is okay, we aren't under pressure it is just a funny hobby.It is strange to be a part of ECG but I am impatient to meet cosplayers from Europe ^^ it will be great! Hope you can go next year :) ( and I am agree, money... ;_; the must important thing for projects... )

The armbands are amazing. Full of details and very beautiful lines. Beautiful lines that define the armor, shape and form, beauty of the lines, shaped by metal. Japanese nd French armor builders from XII to XVI made beautiful pieces.

Well, you are a true artist in my opinion.
I really can't imagine how you can do such works... you're amazing.
I've to say that the model (you!) perfectly fits with the style of the costume... I mean: great costume, great model.
Your artistic passion is undoubtely great, I can feel it.
Thumbs up!

I will patiently wait for your next costume.
Meanwhile... about your comments on diets and so on: remember that it's better to have curves than to be similar to a broomstick.

=)

Up the curves!
Up extraordinary-normal girls! =D

Etant fan de Shunya Yamashita je dois dire que ton costume lui rend hommage d'une très belle facon !
Je n'ose pas imaginer le temps qu'il t'as fallu pour créer cette armure !

Bravo ! Et pour ne rien gacher tu es très mignonne !

Merci, ça me fait vraiment plaisir, je suis également fan de ce qu'il fait depuis de longues années, alors c'est un peu du travail de " fan", une façon de montrer à quel point j'aime son art. Normalement, j'en ferais d'autres, ce sera vers fin 2012 je pense ^^

Je ne sais pas si tu l'as deja fait mais tu devrais lui envoyer une photo. Il est sur facebook et accepte tt ses fans
En tout cas, bravo encore !! J'espere un jour pouvoir t'admirer en vrai !
Tu vas participer a des conventions cette année ?

:iconshoko-cosplay:
Shoko-Cosplay Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Je ne pense pas que ce soit sa page officielle, Shunya ne parle pas anglais et malheureusement il n'y a aucun contact mail sur son site, j'aurais beaucoup aimé lui envoyer c'est vrai...:/
Je serais à Japan expo pour un solo le jeudi,et un cosplay vendredi ^^ le premier sera une armure, le second également mais plus "lèger" je fais toujours un petit costume pour profiter de mes mouvements, et un plus ambitieux car la scène de Japan expo est superbe et rien que ça, ça donne envie de faire un beau costume pour le coté spectacle, que ça plaise aux gens tout en se faisant plaisir également. Japan expo reste ma convention préferée malgré l'aspect de plus en plus commercial. Merci encore pour le gentil message :3

Je ne sais pas trop je dois dire... en tout cas il est sur twitter (bon il ecrit en japonais donc pas facile à lire ^^) alors essaye éventuellement par la !

Tu as les dates de Japan Expo ? (J'y suis jamais allé :S pourtant c'est qu'a 4 heures de TGV :P)
J'ai fait du cosplay a l'epoque (quand j'étais fan de Star Wars) mais maintenant je préfère prendre des photos (en essayant de mettre en scène le plus possible les cosplayers). J'adore voir le travail effectué sur les costumes, ca m'a toujours impressionné !!

Au plaisir de te relire et / ou de te voir à la Japan Expo qui sait ^^

A bientot
