WIP Simon cosplay by Gwiffen WIP Simon cosplay by Gwiffen
THIS IS THE WIP PICTURE. FOR THE FINISHED COSPLAY SEE MY GALLERY AND/OR COSPLAY.COM (same username).

It wasn't quite done, but it looked so nice I had to try it out. I still have to hem the bottom, attach the collar completely, and make the arm sash thing (the one in the pictures is Ema's ascot thing XD). Oh, and MAKE EVERYTHING FROM THE WAIST DOWN. I've really only finished the jacket. I'm droooooowning in a sea of sports tape! D: It hurts and tickles at the same time removing the ones on my stomach. >_>

Oh. My mirror's really dirty apparently.




Simon and Gurren Lagann from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann belong to Gainax!

I wanna cosplay Simon too, but how'd you hide your boobs? xD;

oof wow this is an old picture. ^^; Well as a first step, you need to have small boobs. I used sports tape to tape them out of the way following the tutorial on the cosplay.com forums. It should be easy enough to search for. Good luck!

Quick question! What did you make your core crill from? @_@ I'm doing a really quick Simon cosplay, and I don't really know what to make it from... I'm visiting a hobby store tomorrow to actually try and find an auger or something... Any tips would be great!

I actually bought my core drill. It came included with the Revoltech Gurren Lagann figurine so it was a pretty sweet deal. Only thing is you usually have to ship it over from Asia so it takes a while to arrive. If you don't have the time, I'd recommend you make one out of something like Sculpey or Fimo instead.

Aww, thanks. Thanks for the fave too~. He'll be debuting next weekend so I'll actually have better shots rather than some crappy bathroom mirror ones. :)

Pattern? Well, I just found a normal jacket pattern and put in the huge collar instead of a normal one. I think it was a Simplicity pattern, but really any jacket pattern will work.

Fellow Simon cosplayer! It looks really good.
How did you get the boy chest? D:
Reply
:icongwiffen:
Gwiffen Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2008
That's my normal chest! T_T I've got the teensiest of breasts so it doesn't take a lot of binding to hide them. They're just held down with sports tape to make them decent. How-tos and such for open-chested binding here: [link]

did you get a new camera?
Reply
:icongwiffen:
Gwiffen Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2008
I don't have any!! T_T What little I have are also strapped down with sports tape.

And nah, that's my old ghetto camera. It takes even worse shots than the little one I brought to MTAC and takes up more space.

awwwwwwww you're so CUTE. :heart:

I really wish I could do a Gurren Lagann cosplay. because that show is like the definition of epic.
I don't look anything like a Simon, but I'm really short. too fat to do Yoko. Really the only person I could maybe pull off is Nia. but i kind of don't like her.
