Ken Marinaris - Zone of the Enders V by CrystalGraziano Ken Marinaris - Zone of the Enders V by CrystalGraziano
:heart: Follow me on Facebook! :) [link] :heart:

Anyways, this is my Ken Marinaris cosplay from Zone of the Enders. I made this suit out of pink and burgundy jumbo spandex to get the matte look, and I used matte black vinyl on the sleeves. The green contrast areas are reflective green tape sewn under the suit. The armor is entirely L200 foam, except for the gauntlets which incorporate some matte white vinyl. I sewed three wigs together to get her hair volume. Her hair color ranges from light pink in the artwork to bright orange in game, so I went with a vivid orange with pink undertones.

were do you get you L200 foam? I am using a bunch of different materials to test different ways to make armor and a friend told me about L200 foam, but didnt know where to buy it. Were do you recommend getting it?

i don't wanna continue an over done conversation, but it looked skin toned to me XD then again i'm color blind so .. ignoring that.. can i say this is a beautifully done cosplay and that you seem to bring out the soul of each character you dress up as?

You really do, I loooove your Black Cat cosplay especially, but this is amazing.. needa drop some cash for that Zone of the Enders HD collection already

I just picked up the HD collection of ZOE for the Xbox 360. If Ken was real, she would look just like you. Great job! And ignore all the immature 12 year olds on here.... Apparently sex is still the "cool" thing to think about instead of appreciating a really well done cosplay.

Your making me want to watch Zone of Enders all over again, and you did a fantastic job on this design and your one of the few people with the skill and the figure to pull it off so accurately. You see a lot of people who do cosplay these days but some of the best are ones who follow the rule I've heard them say "Cosplay characters that fit you" referring not just personality but looks as-well. I hope you keep doing what your doing for years to come.

Im only guessing here, but that outfit must have felt slightly odd. The top being moderately warm while the bottom was strangely cool and open. (Yes I see lack of uniform there, but the mishmash of sensations must have caused some kind of confusion ehehe.)

photo vs reality~

sooo tricky! I like the costume entirely. Kinda disturbing due to the pink spandex. The lighting kinda made it look like it's your skin-tone as already indicated by other people.

but still, you look gorgeous!

No, that's ridiculous. I'm fully covered in a spandex suit, and anyone who thinks I'm not needs to be educated that bare stomachs have belly buttons! The spandex is pink, it's not even anywhere near my skintone, nor was it intended to be.

I am going to guess that you're really tired of this conversation, and I agree that it's pretty clearly a bodysuit once you stop to look and think even a little bit. But there's a reason you're getting a face full of cluelessness about this.

First of all, the fact that the other non-burgundy pieces are a brighter white makes it seem like the belly of the suit is very close to the same tone as your face. Colour perception is a funny thing, and a barrier between two patches of different colours can make the brain assume a difference in lighting is the only change.

Second, the poses you struck tended to have one leg bent and forward, as if to conceal something. I understand that these poses are meant to evoke the original source material, but it adds to the illusion.

Finally, we're a generation that's come to expect unusually smooth images to be the result of Photoshop. Make of that what you will.

I think all this is a real pity, as you shouldn't have to defend this repeatedly each time you post a shot from this set. It's an amazing costume and a striking figure in some delightfully moody sets. I think you should just disable comments if you decide to upload any others.

I look forward to more excellent work like this!

it's actually possible to have no belly button. and that would be so much more awesome if that was not pink spandex.

Considering it's a spacesuit, I don't think that would make much sense.
