Finally! My cosplay of Raiden is finished!

The whole outfit is waterproof, so I could get gorgeous shots like this one <3 This outfit is my favourite to date, and is the most flattering on me, I think xD

Sweet jesus, out of all I think this has to be my favorite (those eyes <3).

The fact that its waterproof too just makes me love it more, for some reason. The more accurate the better! And your hair is naturally like that? Its gorgeous and fits so well with him~

THIS WHOLE THING IS HNNNNNNNGH. I love it, so you get gold stars from me \;A;/

This is such a gorgeous shot, an awesome cosplay, and one of the most amazing cosplay photos I've ever seen. You did a fantastic job of bringing one of my favorite gaming characters ever into the real world! :)

Neoprene is wetsuit material and is naturally waterproof. L200 foam is a closed cell foam (and what the knees, elbows and 'y' piece are all made from), and is also waterproof. Dive shoes? Waterproof. The plasti-dip covering the foam? Waterproof. Elastic cording? Waterproof. I used my real hair for the shoot, which won't come off like a wig might.

Essentially, it was just being smart with my material choices.

Where did you buy Neoprene and what's L200?

L200 is a closed cell foam.

I bought both the foam and the neoprene from a foam supplier in Burbank, CA. c:
