Years ago when I first made my cosplay for Daisuke Motomiya from 02, I knew absolutely nothing about how to make shoes. The end result was... passible - if you didn't look too close, but I was never happy with them. Having made my first pair of boots (for Neku from TWEWY - Part 1, Part 2), I now know maybe 5-10% of what goes into making a pair of shoes - just enough to be dangerous and just the right time to give it another go.
Catching up on some old pictures, these are from 2017. After making a Patamon Kigu for my wife, I figured I should make something for myself. I really liked the idea of having Gabumon as a two-piece design, since he kinda a dinosaur that wears a fur coat.
Went with fleece for everything, but I guess I could always remake the top as fur if I wanted to. But this is a kigu, so I think fleece is more appropriate.
So Bandai released the official version of Taichi's Googles from Digimon Adventure 01 and I had to have them. I've done Tai's outfit from 01 as well as the school jacket and orange shirt from Tri. Of course, at the start of Adventure 02, Tai gives his googles to Daisuke after his are broken. Since I already had the googles, that means my next outfit needed to be Daisuke/Davis from Adventure 02!
I made Taichi's Jacket based on the promotional images before the first episodes were released. Once the first episodes came out, I knew my next cosplay would be Tai's casual outfit from episodes 3 & 4.
I've been so exicted for the 15th Anniversary of Digimon Adventure and to see the original digi-destined team in HD.
I had recently finished my cosplay of Taichi from season 1. Once promotional images started to be released I knew wanted to make a go at the older version of Taichi as well. I had never made a jacket before, so this would be a new challenge.
