Lightning Saix cosplay Comikze 2011 by MidnightLiger0 Lightning Saix cosplay Comikze 2011 by MidnightLiger0
This is my completed Lightning Saix Cosplay, which debuted at Comikaze 2011, completed on the second day. I entered my handmade costume in the competition, but I didn't place. But, along with 3 others, I got honorable mentions, because I was the youngest in the contest, and did everything except cut out the shapes cause that required power tools (me and power tools do not mix)

The head is probably the best part of the costume, since I tried to make it as detailed as possible. Visibility is through the mouth, and I can see quite well.
Some last minute detailing was done with sharpy on the clothes, but it looked better than it being plain, and unfortunately I didn't have grey fabric.

I was quite glad that I wore my Lightning Saix cosplay to Comikaze. Most people called me a Transformer, while some just didn't know what I was. Though, there were a few people who recognized me. Those who didn't, when I told them I was a Zoid, some of them remembered the show.
Overall, Comikaze was fun, even though it was a pretty small, disorganized, and confused convention. I like having 2 conventions that are only an hour away, and that I can actually get tickets to. I can't wait for Anime Expo!

Lightning Saix: :iconmidnightliger0: and as far as I know, I'm the first one to do this Cosplay =)

oh sorry, I replied to the comment without checking my deviantwatch messages.
I'm really sorry about all thats been happening to you, and I really wish there was something I could do for you. I just hope that maybe something good will finally come your way. With all the bad stuff thats happened to you, surely something good must happen.

its okay, don't worry about it.

I've honestly come to think the universe doesn't owe us anything or else it refuses to give it to us and just takes us for everything we have then leaves us to rot....-shrugs- once you've been through the mill it does this to you.

I appreciate the well wishes though, I really do, thank you

Stupid life and its unfairness. Well, we can still dream that one day it will be fair.

Its the least I can do. But again, I wish I could do more to help =/
Dregrith Nov 14, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Unless humanity as a whole changes then fairness is only going to be found in small pockets within even smaller communities of people. But at least it does exist.
MidnightLiger0 Nov 16, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Very true. Humanity will probably never change, not even if some catastrophe happened... but at least there is indeed, small amounts here and there.

Thanks for the favs by the way.
