These costumes were a suggestion from a friend, and I’m so glad I made them, I’m very happy with how they turned out!
They are the space pirates Emeralds (of Queen Emeraldas), and Captain Harlock (of Harlock Sagas). Creations of the legendary Leiji Matsumoto, theyvboth have their own series and movies, but their worlds are often intertwined and stories often feature both.
Both aloof, solitary, and cold, these guys are old school, and some of the original anime badasses. I was really happy to pay homage to something as wonderful as Matsumoto’s works.
I made both of these, and I have to say I LOVE wearing my scar.
NEWER PHOTOS BELOW THESE ONES!
These gorgeous photos were all taken by Miko.
I wish you could see more of my facial scar here, but i do
love this shot.
These were the particular outfits I based these costumes on, as they both wear quite a few different ones.
This isn’t too different from the shot above, but I
still liked it enough to post it.
Judy took these photos, i just really liked how they turned out!
