Welcome to another throwback thursday! This time, we're going to have some fun with that sultry prosecutor, Godot!
Godot was actually my first Ace Attorney, and I made him primarily because i have a good friend who cosplayed Mia Fey. He unfortunately got left behind once I started cosplaying Miles Edgeworth, however, because I adore that frilly man so pretty much any time I want to cosplay from AA, I'm going to choose Edgeworth over Godot.
It seemed silly to only cosplay Godot, when Diego Armando is pretty much the same cosplay with a few alterations. The vest is exactly the same, which was the only part of the costume I actually had to make besides the mask. It helped that I also already had a wig that would work well enough.
The best part about Ace Attorney cosplay is that all of the chatacters wear fairly normal clothing, so it's all comfy and was pretty easy to thrift most of it and construct the leftover bits. The biggest pain was the vest, because I couldn't find one that worked, nor could I find suiting fabric that was right, so I had to pinstripe the fabric myself. It was a pain in the ass but it turned out really well.
Interestingly enough, I had a moment while wearing it where this quote was relevant. I was at Ohayocon and there was a table where another convention was advertising. On the there was a white board with information written in marker, but I couldn't see any of it because it was written in red. I asked my friend a question about it and she was like "it says so right there" and pointed at the seemingly blank sign. It was a pretty perfectly unintentional in-character moment.
Because of the style of Ace Attorney, it was really easy to get a lot of good shots, because there are plenty of easy reference poses to follow. The spit take was one of my favorites to try and photograph because I basically had to spit water everywhere about 10 times before we got a good one. Sadly, it wasn't until much later that we realized I should have been using Coke or some other colored liquid. Oh well, at least it still came out pretty well.
And of course i had to end with my favorite photo because it is just too perfect with the flash reflection lining up the way it did. This was of course entirely unintentional.
And there's Godot. I'm actually selling the bits I have left (the mask died a while ago) so you might see him around, but I won't be the one wearing him.
