Just a few test shots I posted on Tumblr then decided to post here to prove I'm not being lazy cosplay wise! Please excuse my crappy webcam. I'm quite excited to cosplay U-1224. He's another character I need to make myself kinda pale for, but hopefully I'll get the hang of the make up so I don't look gray in flash photos. I'm also trying to get used to my new color lenses--which are sadly much too dark for him but I'm hoping that I can either find something else that's cheapish and lighter or that these will magically appear brighter gray in the sun. I made both the Iron Cross and the ribbon.
U-1224 will be debuted at Kitacon 3. I only know of one other person cosplaying from this series at this con, so hopefully we'll find one another on Friday! I originally was only going to make the sailor uniform he appears in as a child and in one other illustration as an adult, but I've become too tempted to make his official uniform. Luckily I still have two weeks to finish everything...!
Character: U-boat/ U-1224
