Tiger and Bunny - Jake Martinez by darcywilliam Tiger and Bunny - Jake Martinez by darcywilliam
*EDIT thanks so much for all the feedback, its so flattering to hear people like it, it really motivates me, I will try and respond to everything once I settle down after moving :D*

I have no clue why I decided to cosplay this D: I will never want to work with this much fur again T___T even a few months after I still pull fur off some of my clothes D:

I wore this costume to Armageddon Melbourne last year, I melted in this thing; it was so hot in it which I really should have foreseen :l This costume again was done in a bit of a rush as I had a lot of folio and school stuff due at the time. The black fur was very expensive so I only got what I thought would just suffice but it didn't D8 which resulted in me travelling 2hrs to the city to buy just a tiny bit more the day before then coming 2hrs home to pull an all nighter in order to reach the con at 10am the next day. It was an exhausting experience.

A few months later I shot this with :iconblackcrane56: as Tiger and :iconemorenji: as Bunny. :iconritsuka-shiina: was there as little Kaede. I had a really great time shooting this costume with everyone. Thank you for letting me tag alone :D

The wig was done by the very talented :iconmelriza: and I really couldn't thank her enough, I would never have been able to do it without her.

Sorry for the long description 8D

*Also if anyone knows someone who wishes to cosplay this character please send them my way, I want to get rid of this ugly thing D:*

I've seen some great Jake cosplay, but the make up job on yours really sets it above any others that I've seen.

Fantastic and lovely, my god I wish there were cosplayers like you up where I live, we're lucky if we can get anyone other than absolute main characters of anything. You are a wonderful cosplayer. =)

I saw this as a thumbnail from google...I was thinking it had to be digital art because of how well it was done, but nope. You pull off the character perfectly.
