Rakshas Cosplay Preview by Manjou Rakshas Cosplay Preview by Manjou
This a preview of my up-and-coming Rakshas cosplay, this was before one of the Electroluminescent eyes critically failed on me earlier and I had to rip them all out :fork:

I've just ordered another EL panel, does anyone out there know of a way to strengthen these things??

Don't know how you can be awestruck by this when you've made some epic clanking steampunk cosplays yourself that I would have no chance of replicating :XD: Thanks though :aww:

That looks badass!

Though the paint around the eyes and third eye look a bit wobbly. Maybe try a stencil of a circle if you wanna tidy it up :)

Cant wait to see it finished ><

It's a lot better than it was, I need to give it a final coat of white anyway. I'll do my best to clean it up then :aww:

Cool :) I just think it will look better closeup if all the lines look straight and not wobbly :p

You can double it as a halloween costume as well!

I bet cosplay is awesome, i'd love to do one as a berserk character :)

i'm planning a Rakshas cosplay too... probably not going to be anywhere near as good as yours, but would you mind if i put red in his eyes like you did? ^^

i'm going to recycle my Menos cosplay costume, and just make a Rakshas mask ^^

Yours is awesome though! Best of luck on the eyes ^^

Why should I mind? :D It was made from white electroluminescent panels with a self adhesive film (like you use on stained glass windows) attached to the top of it; it works really well but it can be a bit delicate :(

Good luck with your Rakshas cosplay too, it looks as if a couple of people have been considering cosplaying him; about time too! :XD:

Absolutely, I fully agree! I just wonder if anyone's going to recognize him at the con i'm going to... bit ignorant over in NZ they are ^^;; (didn't recognize my Toki from Metalocalypse one you see lol)

I'll keep you posted on when i start the mask and such... i'll be doing it papier mache like my Menos Grande one :)
