Zoro Cosplay - One Piece by Berry-Cosplay Zoro Cosplay - One Piece by Berry-Cosplay

this is a uhmm... about 3 years old picture of my Excellent Scene Cosplay of Zoro. It was really amazing for me to sew this one, because there were so many little details and I love to work with pearls and buttons and small stuff (<- faggot) and thats why I really loved to make this cosplay. Since I almost never do this, I want to tell a little story about the making of of the cosplay (and its quite funny to be honest ^^). 3 years ago, there were almost no pictures of the excellent scene outfits in the internet. We had small pics (prob. around 600-900px high) and since they were full-body-pictures most of the time, u couldnt see the details at all. so our whole group was sitting in front of the small pics and we were discussing, what the details could look like and what they were supposed to be. We wore the cosplays in april, I wanted to start early and was finished with the sewing part in... I guess it was february. Only the details were missing. At this time, I could tell that the golden parts could be buttons, but I couldnt exactly tell how they looked like. In march, I went on a con and looked trough some stuff in the buying section. I saw a One Piece artbook, and decided to take a look, and finally saw the outfits in a bigger and clearer version. The bad thing was... i didnt have money with me xD i dont like bags on cons, so i usually put the important things either in my shoes or in my underwear (lol) so I wont have to put it away each time when someone wants to take a photo. Of course, this time there wasnt money in my underwear (dammit) but I had to get this artbook, since there were so many details we havent seen before. I couldnt help myself, so I stripped a little bit, put my hands right into my underwear to get out my.... HANDY (you perverts, I know what you thought >D) and made some illegal pictures of the outfits xDD of course they guy noticed my actions and banished me from his store, but I got at least one detailed pic of the button things and put my handy pleased back in my pants ;D So I worked on all the details, felt like a king (altough it took me weeks to craft all of the little stuff) and the weekend before the con our group met to do the last things of our cosplays together. I told them about my funny underwear-story, when finally our franky said, she had bought the artbook _ suddenly all of us were grouped around the table, and we were slapped right into the face @_@ altough we were working really hard, we misinterpreted some of the details and saw the truth right before us. So... after we cried for like ... 3 disney films (=P) we decided to start the overnight shifts and took care of the missing details xD

So... this was a little story of the life of a common cosplayer, but if you ask me, those stories are indeed the best about the whole hobby =D so, if you have time, let me hear your little stories <3

That's a really good cosplay and Impressively made <3
If I may ask, How did you make Zoro's Haramaki (The green band around his stomach). I was planning on cosplaying Zoro for upcoming conventions and I'm stumped on how to make it. Any advice will be greatly appreciated thank you <3
Again AMAZING job with the cosplay and costume, it's very well made, even professional looking. <3

hey, thx for the comment. personally I found making the haramaki quite difficult (at least for me) because I dont have the right physics for zoro. If you have a straight body its very easy, since its only like a tube around your body, but I have a pretty slim waist and therefore I had to shape the haramaki so it will still be tight, and thats troublesome for the lines on it. so, get a fabric which has the right color, look which shape u need to fit your body and most important, if the shape isnt 100% straight, do not paint the lines in a straight path since they will be crooked if you wear it. hope this helps

hahhahaha I read your little story and it's a great one! I've been wanting to tackle something complicated, but it's a character from such a rare manga that it's hard to find any good reference pictures besides of course from the manga, which is in black and white... so color choices have to be made. and jhgkfhdgkfd I feel your pain. This cosplay turned out super though. For as ideally simple Zoro is, the small details mean a lot.

Also might be hiding things in my pants now. Seems legit.

its super legit... as long as you dont wear a skintight overall... but... no man should do that... never xD

AHAHAHAHA! No never... just no.
