Kotetsu T. Kaburagi from Tiger and Bunny
Photoshoot: This photoshoot was at Fanime 2012 again- but this time it was inside the Marriott - this was taken with the intent to actually GET a good pairing shot- yaaay! The whole entire thing was really... REALLY not serious at all- In fact so anti-serious I could not even begin to tell you- either way it was worth the wait and the pictures came out perfectly as usual!
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.
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]
