First of all, RIP Satoshi Kon. I can't say I watched many of his movies, but I really fell in love with Paprika; it showed such vision and talent on his part. It's a huge loss to the animation world.
asked me yesterday if we could work on getting an Old Snake costume ready for him for TGS, so on a whim we decided to go for it. We got some nice fabric today, so hopefully we'll have it ready for TGS's Metal Gear cosplay contest! We only have a couple weeks to finish it, and with him working and me starting school for the fall, it's going to be a stretch. It works out though; we've been planning on making him Old Snake for whenever I am able to debut MGS4 Raiden, so we'll just be ahead of the game.
Also, strange as it sounds, I need it to get out of a cosplay funk! After Klan didn't get finished by AX as planned, I haven't really felt motivated to work on anything. I was hoping Bomber Cammy would help, but it was so simple it didn't give me the kick I need. I need another difficult costume to make under a ridiculous time crunch to really get me back in gear.
Does this make me a masochist?
Anyways, I'll be posting our progress on Twitter starting in a few days, and it'll be eventually put on my LJ too. I hope this gets done!
