If you’ve been reading the progress on my KOS-MOS Dollfie Dream custom project, you’ll know that it’s been a long process but after over a year of planning and work she’s finally done!
If you haven’t already browsed these pages, here are my other entries about KOS-MOS -
Part 1: Introduction, Head & Wig, Faceup, Body Image
Part 2: Head Gear, Boots and Armour
Part 3: Bodysuit
Part 4: Weapon
Without any further ado, I’d like to present KOS-MOS!
If you read Part I, you’ll know that having finally acquired the head and body that I wanted for Makoto, the serious job of creating her costume and her weapon was about to begin!
We started with the more straight-forward portions first, so in this entry will be descriptions of the Headgear, Boots and Armour.
For a long time I’ve been a huge fan of the character of KOS-MOS from the Xenosaga games. Kevin (my hubby) and I have collected practically every figure every released of KOS-MOS, and have been planning to make a custom DD of KOS-MOS for the last… 15 months or so. It’s been a long process, with lots of trial and error, but it’s been worth it to see my lovely Makoto finally become the doll she was intended to be.
My original plan was to complete KOS-MOS to unveil at a Volks Dolpa in New York in 2011, but after the devastating tsunami hit Japan last Spring, any plans of a Dolpa happening that year in North America were quickly put aside to much more important matters. So my KOS-MOS project was shelved for a while. Kevin never gave up on the project, and decided to set an even bigger goal for unveiling our KOS-MOS Dollfie Dream – Tokyo Dolpa 27! I thought he was crazy (since we had just been to Tokyo in autumn of 2011), but with the enthusiasm and interest of some other friends who wanted to make this a group trip, Project X gained momentum again. This will be a diary of this project, and tutorial of how Project X came into being.
Here are a few of my KOS-MOS and Xenosaga figures. Yes, I have the stunning Volks statue too! My thanks to TokyoHunter for helping me acquire her. As you can see, I have lots of reference materials! ^__~”
