DEAD MASTER Cosplay

^Lemme start this entry by narrating how my Dead Master Cosplay came to be.


Actually, DM was never in my plan.


My friends, headed by Gelaii~chan, were gonna have a Black Rock Shooter Photoshoot in Cavite, their original Dead Master was supposed to be Gelaii's sister but for some reason she wasn't gonna be there. z3LL thought that I can be Dead Master since I was gonna come along anyway. Gelaii agreed and volunteered to lend me all the Dead Master stuff except for the dress because she thought it might not fit me.
I wanted to help them out and the dress was easy enough so I agreed.
Then things went very badly for me. I already had the dress made but my platelet count dropped so fast and I got a fever so high you could not believe. Yep, I was a candidate for dengue and sadly I was not able to come to the shoot... =(


I felt so bad but thank heavens they were able to get someone to replace me as Dead Master and their shoot was a success! All this happened in the last week of August. After like 2 weeks of confinement and no baths, (I felt so grossed out of myself hahahhahha I was only able to take sponge baths for 14 days!!!! gaaaaaaaaaaa) I was recovering nicely.


I almost forgot about the Dead Master dress. But I saw it hanging in one of my closets, I thought what a shame for it to go to waste so I started making the horns, then the wings, then the scythe. hahahhahahha
In the end, I went ahead with my Dead Master cosplay and I am very happy with it. ^^ It is even one of my favorites! hhahaha


I have been blabbing about Dead Master all this time. Well, for those who do not know who or what Dead Master is, here is a little info about her.









Dead Master is the "other self" of Takanashi Yomi. She is a character from the 50 minute OVA Black Rock Shooter (ブラック★ロックシューター Burakku Rokku Shūtābased on the song of the same name by Supercell and its accompanying music video with illustrations by Huke. 


I don't want to give too much away, just watch the OVA, it is only 50 minutes! ahhahahha
















Making the props was horrifying XD but very very fun and I learned a lot, this was a major project for me since I don't usually make big things like these. 


Here is a photo of my Dead Master cosplay.






The first time I wore it was during Best of Anime 2010 (19 Sept. 2010 in SMX)

Notice that I do not have claws in my DM debut.
Do not fret, I have worked hard on improving this cosplay everytime I wore it.


Wore it again for the SM Cyberzone Halloween Meet and Greet in SM Fairview.
I made a LOT of children cry. hehhehhhhe >_< (30 Oct. 2010)
There were a few who got curious and tried befriending me the "Grim Reaper Girl".
There was even one who really made my day, she was wearing a fairy princess outfit, all of her little friends were crying when they saw me but she came up to me and gave me candy. Awwwwwww


Again in UP AME Track 10 in SMX 9 (13 Nov. 2010)


Sadly, even though this is one of my favorite costumes, I had to let go of it. I needed cash and frankly it was just so hard bringing it to cons.


This cosplay is a first in many ways, it is my first antagonist cosplay and first cosplay which I had so many bulky props.


I had a shoot to properly document my favorite cosplay before it went to its new home.


Prepping time.
