Gurren Lagann: Kiyal Bachika by MomoKurumi Gurren Lagann: Kiyal Bachika by MomoKurumi

Aaaaahhh, I'm having a fit at how awesome these photos look! Jared and I did an improvised photoshoot, and it was rocky the whole time. Like, first I forgot my arm bands, so I went back, then we got booted from our original shooting location before getting any photos, so we ended up finding a random abandoned factory which was also scary. At one point a large truck started backing up towards my car, and I was freaking out because I thought we were about to get towed. The truck was just turning around though. XD

Despite all the trouble over such a simple cosplay, the photos look FANTASTIC. After a friend cosplayed Kinon, I knew I had to join her and be her Kiyal, so super-quick found item cosplay a-go-go! The tank top is from Macy's, shorts from Forever 21, belt made from stretch webbing. On the belt is a makeshift buckle and a pouch, that's actually a camera bag. I put it on the wrong side for the photoshoot- woops! I made the armbands, and the gloves are from Home Depot. I also made the hair clips and styled the wig, which I got from CosplayWig on ebay.

I'm guessing you weren't brave enough to wear the outfit she wore during "Kittan Begins." xD

I wasn't really, but in the GL Parallel Work "Kittan Zero," the Black Siblings' outfits were...different. [link]

I'm just teasing, but I love doing cosplays that might require "bravery", or at the very least Kamina's kind of confidence. XD You actually make me want to do it, because there's nothing to it, buahaha. I wonder if I could get a group together for it, that'd be fun!
