Kasumi DOA4 Duct Tape Cosplay by midnitedying Kasumi DOA4 Duct Tape Cosplay by midnitedying
Made out of 5 rolls of blue duct tape and 1 roll of white.

After seeing a website with photos of people creating prom outfits from duct tape I was in awe and instantly inspired. There was a Con coming up and I didn't have an outfit yet so I set out to make this piece of duct tape wonder. Kasumi seemed easy enough and after mastering the ways of duct tape I was very pleased at how this came out! ^w^ It may not me completely accurate (sleeves were beyond my comprehension) but it means so much to me.

Displayed at OmniCon in McAllen. My 1st winning cosplay bringing me up to 1st place. A nice first win for sure!

This is actually very impressive. It's like a MythBusters special.

Brilliant. I gotta say you nailed it, well done.

i have to admted thats pretty badass!! I was looking into doing the same thing (the duct tape, not the costume). It will be my first cosplay and anime convention so i feel really overwhelmed with the da ft. Do you have any tips or suggestions for it? and out of curiosity ow much did it cost you to make yours??

Many many thanks I'm sure the duct tape and myself hated each other for making it that damned smooth, duct tape doesn't like to be bonded to itself >w<; Thank you again!

:iconmidnitedying:
midnitedying Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2008
Its basically a 7 piece costume that you hold on and have someone else place tape over the seams to hold it together. took me 4 people to get it on. >w< Thank you for the compliment!

Awesome. I thought I was the only one into making duct tape cosplay (mine's not finished yet...). How long did it take you to make this?

No its actually catching trend. This one in particular took me about 2-3weeks.

Wow..... Thatd be a good Halloween costume. lol. Is she your favorite charater to play in DOA? Is that why you dicided to make her instead of like.. Hitomi or Helena or even Leifang?
Reply
:iconmidnitedying:
midnitedying Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2008
She's one of my favorites, basically I chose her because it seemed simpler than the others and I wanted to see if I could even manage at that, I'll probably try my hand at making the whole DOA cast outta duct tape.

Perfectionist+duct tape=long time to make flat

I was OCD about making sure this came out smooth as possible. I'm glad you noticed. And thank you on the pretty comment >w<
