Tai Kamiya / Yagami Taichi of Digimon
view Renae's Cosplay Lab profile
Hours to Make: 35+
First worn at: AFO3
Inspiration: I adore Tai; I see a lot of myself in him. He's so adorable, too. He just has a great character design and.. aww, heck, I love the little guy!
By the by, collage made possible by luv-luv.net and risingsun.net!
Favorite Aspect: His shirt and goggles. I sewed the designs on the shirt myself. I had to force needles through really thick fabric and my fingers have never been the same. x_X
Even though the goggles are cute, they look quite cheap. I want to redo them sometime soon.
Least Favorite Aspect: I had to tie my hair up in about a dozen rubber bands to give it a kind of.. er.. "poofy" look since my hair is so long and I couldn't spike it up. I mean, they were easy to put in, but it really hurt to take them out. Rubber bands = EVIL.
Easiest Task: Sewing the headband. Definitely.
Hardest Task: Manufacturing the goggles. They were my Grampa's work goggles and I had to clean them, cut the extra rubber stuff off, get them spray painted silver, and use electric tape for the black band. It was a real mess. Despite that, it STILL came out looking horrible.
