Groovy Britannia by Firnheledien Groovy Britannia by Firnheledien
I have so many wonderful photos of my Igiko cosplay. I suppose I'll just post a few here and the rest on my blog and cosplay.com account.

[EDIT] I forgot to say that I also got some pins for my collar. I have 2: one Union Jack and one of London landmarks. :3 They don't show up very well in the photos.

This one was taken by ejump: [link]

Thank you so much! Yep, I made it out of cardboard following a tutorial I found online. The reference pictures I found for electric guitars with the Union Jack on it tend to be the Gibson model which is curvier and not the shape I associate with electric guitars. XP The only sad thing is, I didn't/couldn't incorporate a strap for me to carry it and it's nowhere near as shiny as a real guitar. I need to find the proper gloss varnish for it but since it's all paper and glue, I'm afraid the varnish solvent will dissolve the glue. >_<

Thank you again. :)

^^ you're very welcome~!
Wow, that's amazing ^^ I bet i could never do it. Even with the tutorial lol. Or I could never make one as good as yours ^^
Aww. I hope varnish doesn't dissolve the glue D: I wonder if there's anything else you could use? idk what, though.

Well you never know until you try. The tutorial-maker's guitar turned out way better than mine! I wouldn't do this again, though, not even if you paid me. XP

I HAD to make the guitar, otherwise people would have thought I was just a regular schoolgirl. ORZ

Haha, thanks for saying that.

I made it out of cardboard using Featherweight's tutorial at the cosplay.com forums.

I dunno, it just frustrates me because I always can't really smile in photos because my eyes disappear. And I always look a bit sleepy.
