Monster Hunter Goushu Kirin by SoCoPhDPepper Monster Hunter Goushu Kirin by SoCoPhDPepper
Photo by Joseph Chi Lin photography. [link]
Cosplay by: PhDPepper [link]
Character: Goushu Kirin Male armor
Series: Monster Hunter "Capcom"
This would be the very first photoshoot photo with the outfit 100% put together, weapons and all.

Never have i had to put as much time into a costume as this particular one. I had to cut 1600 leather scales, which were then hand shaded and darted to give it a proper curve. Such a time consuming task.

I don't really do commissions because i don't think i have the skills to make an outfit to fit someone elses measurements. Especially an outfit like this one, it took an obscene amount of hours because of the number of scales i had to cut, dart, and hand shade. Life got busy so i don't really have the time to commit to something this complicated anymore :\

The scales are leather so they were tanned in tears and spilt alcohol.

Sounds like the best kind of costuming!
