Welcome to another Throwback Thursday! This time we're taking a look back at our favorite Sacaean swordsman, Guy!
Guy was one of my earlier cosplays, and as it turns out, the first time I tried to wear him, it didn't work out. It was Colossalcon several years ago and my friend and I were going to do a little photoshoot together as Guy & Matthew. Well, I finished Guy, but my friend never made Matthew. To add to the confusion, I left my wig at home, so I was a weird short-haired ginger Sacaean instead of actually being Guy. The only good thing to come out of it was our mutual friend, who came dressed as Leanne. We got a picture of her stabbing me with my own sword. Don't ask why, because I don't know.
So yeah, fortunately when I brought him to Colossalcon a few years later, I actually remembered the wig.
This costume turned out surprisingly well for as early in my cosplay career as i made it. the details along the side are all done in satin ribbon, and it fits me well. The sleeves are even attached correctly! The only thing that's a bit wonky is the collar. The hole for my head is a bit bigger than it's supposed to be so I end up showing a decent amount of collarbone area, but that's the only real issue.
It was at that Colossal that I actually got some decent photos of him.
I still have yet to get together with a Matthew, but hopefully I can make that happen relatively soon, because I have a friend who cosplays Matthew (the same friend who does every version of Sothe). Now that we got big!Sothe and little!Sothe together, Guy and Matthew are next on the list. On the bright side, I did manage to find a Rebecca cosplayer at last year's Colossalcon (apparently that's the only convention I'm allowed to wear this to).
We were supposed to have a Nino as well, to make a Blazing Sword grin-haired trio, but sadly she couldn't make it.
That's about all there is to say about this guy... haha, Guy... get it?
Ok, I'm done.
