I’ve been having so much fun cosplaying Illumi Zoldyck and my make up skills are improving as well. Win all around! I’ve also been able to meet a lot of really cool HxH cosplayers at meets. They are all so warm and accepting. :)
While making my 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc Illumi, I was careful to make sure I had enough green fabric to make the version I had wanted to make from the beginning; Hunter Exam arc Illumi! So glad I had enough fabric for both! Since I line most everything I make I had purchased enough to line my Hunter Exam version with the same green fabric. But to conserve fabric (since I later decided to do two Illumi cosplay that used the same green) I decided to line the pants with a different fabric I had lying around. It worked out since I really like the subtle texture of the green fabric. Also, the texture made the fabric kind of scratchy, so I’m glad that I didn’t use it for lining. >,<
The needles were pretty easy to make once I figured out how I wanted to do them; I made a different post about making the needles >>
After completing Hunter Exam Illumi KitsuneSqueak and I went to an abandoned warehouse and took really cool creepy photos of her as Killua and me as Illumi. After talking for a bit I kept mentioning that I wanted to find a Hisoka so badly and she made the suggestion that I make Hisoka and she would wear my Illumi. >:} So there will probably be a Hisoka cosplay in the works at some point. As well as a secret one…
I was able to reconnect with a lot of HxH couplers I met at Zenkai, and it was awesome! So many fun times.
