Character Name: Goku Series: Saiyuki Specifics: main outfit Cost: $100 Time: 20 hours Started: March 2003 Completed: May 2003 Debuted: Anime North 2003
This was one of my first costumes. A group of my friends and I decided to cosplay Saiyuki for Anime North and I cosplayed as Goku.
This base of the top was made out a white dress shirt that I bought at a thrift store and modified. Everything else on the top was made out of twill and attached to the shirt. The armbands were made out of pieces I salvaged from the dress shirt and more twill
The gold accessories were made by gluing together layers of card stock and then painting them gold. The original staff was made out of a wooden dowel, some paper, two foam golf balls and some paint.
