+Tiger and Bunny - 20% Cooler than papa+ by supernovadobe +Tiger and Bunny - 20% Cooler than papa+ by supernovadobe
:bulletgreen:Kotetsu T. Kaburagi from Tiger and Bunny:bulletgreen:

:bulletgreen:Photoshoot: We had a photoshoot with the amazing Kim Williams at Fanime 2012 for our Tiger and Bunny- it was the first time I've ever worked with this particular photographer and he was absolutely patient and wonderful. There was so many of us I felt a little bad about how many pictures were needed, but Kim was all over the place taking all of them- paradox! Either way it was a wonderful day, I think this was the best day in cosplay I've had in a really long time, because I got a wife and a kid. Family <3 It meant so much to me to have *masa-kocha be our Kaede. I can only hope in the future she'll want to do more with us because she was such a pleasure to hang out with! I cherish her friendship greatly. Also it was such a surprise to see our Kriem show up out of the blue *gbright1 she made the outfit for me as a complete surprise! I nearly cried, then I waved my hands frantically at my "old man" face so the makeup wouldn't smear. My good long standing friend ~KopiNinja dressed up as Tomoe, Tiger's long since dead wife, and we had a day of it. Along with my wife, my lovely friend Billy as Dragon Kid, and my best friend Danny as Origami, as well as my roommate as black tiger and our Sakura as Blue Rose, it was one of the first times in a long time in which I had seen everyone together in Koi Cosplay! It was just an amazing day! Not to mention one point where I took a break to go to the bathroom and found notes had been stuck down my shirt with things like "call me" and "best friend ever" - I swear to god I'm going to figure out who did that some day. <3

:bulletgreen:Costume: I went to a thrift store that was local and got a fitting white shirt, that I dyed with Rit to look more appropriate to Tigers. I created the vest by hand and lined it on the inside with tiger print fabric ho ho ho. <3 I styled and cut the wig myself, made the hat, and the slacks were altered to appear more like his. The shoes were purchased at a local shop.

:bulletgreen: Tiger and Bunny - Kotetsu T. Kaburagi was one of my favorite characters, but his body type is far too lean and tall for my personal body type. When I decided to cosplay from Tiger and Bunny I wanted to cosplay Keith Goodman, who is just absolutely precious. However only to be told "You must be tiger because you are closest in personality" to this day I am burdened by self consciousness when I wear the costume because Tiger's metabolism eats everything he eats as he walks or something so he is a stick <3 I am no stick. Regardless, I look up to his character development, and find the story of Tiger and Bunny vastly entertaining. I've written stories for it-because I was so enthusiastic about it- if you would like to read them you can here [link]

oh kaede, Y U SO BLIND TO HOW COOL YOUR FATHER IS?!?! that's probably one of my biggest frustrations in the series. i think i was actually so relieved the episode they reconciled that i actually collapsed on my bed that i was sitting on while watching the episode. so happy! but then i got angry at her for a few episodes for being so impatient with the whole retirement thing... great picture. i like it. poor kotetsu being ignored by his daughter! >.< and bunny looks a little awkward, like he doesn't know what to do. it's kinda hard to tell, since i can't see his face...

I was actually sad that she didn't like her father but to be frank from her point of view it is rather difficult, I think that she is the least liked characgter of the series because of it. But she completely redeems herself by saving Kotetsu in the end.

her situation is difficult, but i still think she was being too hard on him since he had good reasons to be gone. i've been in similar situations with my dad, so i can see where she's coming from, but still...

yes, i was happy with her in the end because of the save. completely redeemed! XD

i know! her attitude at the end changed so much for the better and her next power is awesome! and she's so courageous, and... i could go on for a while why she's so cool at the end, so i'll just stop here.

I am sorry you cannot find a Bunny- I am sure there are plenty of Bunnys in need of Tigers- you can probably look on the forums on cosplay.com!

haha I can totally see this happening perfectly. XD and Kotetsu would be all like 'WAI U NO <3 ME DAUGHTERRRR?!' and Barnaby despite the bromance would just play the nice princely character but be forever be accused by his bromodachi of being a pedo. LOL

Ahahahaha ~~~ the idea of Barnaby being a pedo hurts my soul so badly - the idea is so horrid- it would serve to funciton as a way to make me twitch repulsively in conversation eh heh!

Thank you for your comment sweetheart <3 You amused me greatly

Kotetsu would only accuse him of that because he doesn't want to admit that he be jelly~ xP rofl or so I'd think.

Glad to have been your amusement for a second or two! x'D

I'm actually currently frustrated with a story of mine. x_x I've been trying to draw it out, and I can't figure out what I want the buildings to look like. Uuuuugghh.
I'll get it eventually. It's just.. lkjasfoew
Oh, and two characters still need appearances. -falls over-

Oh my goodness, you can draw from some of the art for Final Fantasy or Akira for inspiration, as well as Dragonball Z- Or even Utena! The buildings they used for Ohtori academy are TO DIE FOR. If you can manage to put significant twist on it- it can be perfectly acceptable!
