Cosplay: EightRangers landing in Italy (Milan) once again  
Hello, minna!

Last november a group of italian eighters (me included) cosplayed EightRangers at Lucca Comics.
But since Orenji was missing, we NEEDED a reunion, and as promised, we had it a few weeks ago ^_^

HERE you'll find the NEW gallery with gorgeous photos taken by a pro, and other photos (as well as the old november set) is available @ my LJ (F-locked for RL reasons but feel free to add me, I won't bite ^^)
It was fun, please have fun and enjoy it, too ^__^

I'm also an Eighter, and I would like to know where did you find the Eito Ranger suit, or how did you make it, for the halmet and the mugendai sign?

your pictures are really great!!

Hello and thanks!!! ^__^
Well, the making of this cosplay was not as hard as it might seem, though nor easy...
We used work suits, the ones that painters or mechanics use at work ^^
Actually, mine (the green one) was originally a true green mechanic suit I "borrowed" from my mechanic-uncle because the size was too little for him XD
I was lucky!
The others were painted with colors for fabric.
The mugendai is made of "pannolenci", a sort ot thin layer of wool used for padding, then manually sewed on the suit.
As for the helmets, we bought snowboard ones, got them painted, then applied the wings made up of various plastic cups painted and glued together. The hardest thing was the glue, the wings just did not want to stick to the helmet >_____
