Here are the (pretty much finished) tonfas.

They don't look exactly like anything that Sun Ce wields in game, but they look pretty cool and more authentic. Considering that they're made out of PVC, Bondo, and paint.

The Da Qiao I'm cosplaying with actually already did a Da Qiao cosplay (I did a Sun Ce one already too, but it was done in two days and cost under $20 all in all, so it wasn't very good - plus, it was his alternate DW5 costume so the colors weren't immediately recognizable).

^ Looks very nice finished. At least you didn't try to do his 4th weapon which IMO looks a little odd.

I agree with that. To this day, I'm still not sure exactly what the things on the fourth weapons are.

They are Tiger Claws maybe?

Maybe. It'd make sense.

I'll be wearing this at AnimeNEXT rather than Otakon. Turns out that someone got the wrong convention and the wrong hotel when they reserved.

For those of you who are curious, there are DW cosplays on sale on eBay, though mostly just female characters.

The shirt has officially been cannibalized and is now sleeveless and has goldish ribbon running along the trim. I'm debating on embroidery versus fabric paint for the details - there's an embroidery store a ways away from here and I just got a mega paycheck at work.

Also, I will be wearing this to Otakon after all.

AnimeNEXT. This is the one to go to if you're from NY or NJ. (It's in New Jersey.)

http://www.otakon.com/default2.asp

Otakon. This is the larger of the two conventions and is in Baltimore, MD.

Since I live in PA, I'm going to both conventions, along with a Da Qiao hanging on my arm *cough*
