    The drawbacks of living at home Nurbs. There's lots of of young Kigurumi hopefuls in your position. But it gives you time to plan ahead, so when you are ready to begin, you will know exactly how. Don't discount any big Comic or Anime cons around Minneapolis. These are natural places for Kigs to congregate. Having an original character, means she will have to be exceptional to be noticed, and not get lost in a sea of cosplayers with flashy costumes, doing recognizable characters from TV, Movies, …

    Having said all that above, the first step is to know who you want to kig as. A recognized character can be easier, as more stuff is available for purchase than for an original character. I see that you use a drawing of the Wendy's mascot as your avatar, so let's work with that. You have to make your body look like the character's body. For the sake of this post, I will assume that you are a boy. This involves padding your hips, stuffing a bra, padding your butt, cinching the waist or wearing a …

    Nurbs: Question 1. Have you picked out a character you wish to perform as? Question 2. Does this character have a signature outfit that everyone would recognize? Can it be created by purchasing clothing from retail stores ? Is the outfit available from one of the Anime costume stores in Asia? Would you consider having a seamstress custom create the costume for you, or are you handy with a needle and thread? Can you find the appropriate shoes in your size? Can all accessories, bags, hair clips, b…

    Nurbs: There is a high level of Mental and Physical preparation involved in Animeago Kigurumi as well. Mentally, you have to prepare yourself. You will be acting as another character, stepping into a new Role. Is this an established character with her own personality, or will you be making up the way she responds to situations from whole cloth. Then you have to learn how the character reacts to those different situations like being insulted, dealing with terrified kids and demanding parents, eve…

    The word "Kigurumi" has several meanings, but they all have a common theme. Kigurumi "involves" putting on a full body costume, of one type or another, so that there is no part of the performer visible to the outside viewer. This version of Kigurumi, called Animegao or "Anime Face", involves costumes and masks that are derived from Japanese Cartoons and Comics. ( Anime and Manga respectively.) Still, the concept of full body coverage applies. If you mean how does one become a Kig performer, then…

    Hello Spring Lucy. Thank you for your questions. As a maker of masks, allow me to deal with some of those questions. 1. Imagine if you took a full enclosure motorcycle helmet and duct taped the visor. That's essentially what you have in a Kigurumi Mask. There is padding inside to make the fit comfortable, which can adjust a commercial mask for many head sizes, but it impairs your ability to hear. If there is not enough ventilation in the mask, it can get hot and stuffy. Depending on the style of…

    Hi Xelphie: It's always wonderful to see somebody new taking up the hobby. The fact that you have friends already who can support you is great. Sometimes it pays to actually see things up close, rather than rely on pictures. But you have come to the right place. I don't know how many of us there are, but you ask a question, and you will get a response. Doesn't matter what aspect you chose to ask about, this place has forums and threads, on just about anything. Best of all we don't bite. ( Can't …

    Cici: Can any of our Japanese guests provide us with more historical background from Japan? Kiki

  • User Avatar

    I've never been able to get a good answer to this question myself. My web search turned up pictures of what we would call Animegao Kigurumi characters as far back as 1986. I have some shots of Kigurumi performers that were at the Tokyo Toy show in 1996, at Comic Market 57 in 1999. However, I can't tell if these were fans or just performers hired by the companies who made the Anime, acting as mascots. Wikipedia tells us that Sailor Moon live action Musicals began in 1993 These were stage shows mu…

    LOL When I go to the fabric store, I often find rolls of plastic mesh. Neat thing is that they are white. Really neat thing is that they can be colored with black magic marker. Assuming that I actually want to see through the mask's eyes, and not a vision slit, I just glue a square inside my masks over each eye socket hole.This acts as the sciera. I can then either paste a cutout made of photo paper which already has the Iris printed on it, onto each mesh eye, or hand draw the iris myself. Eithe…

    I'm no expert here. But in my experience, any bodysuit / zentai /hadati, which is made out of stretch material, will expand to cover what you stuff inside. I've never seen one with enough elastic to compress beyond it's original dimensions. So my guess is buy one which fits your narrowest dimension. If that's your waist over your cincher, then go for that and let the rest of the suit stretch to cover your padding. Of course if it's custom fit all the way around, since you have one measurement (w…

    Post

    Quote: “ Since I couldn't see anywhere else to ask this, I was wondering about padding for a more masculine look, but as other kig performers have problems with with achieving a lovely feminine silhouette. It's the trying to get a male figure, without hips and butt giving it away. As I may be an kinda stick shaped I still have hips and butt?” I know personally one performer who does or did male Kig. First thing to be considered, is the body type of the character you are portraying. Unfortunately…

    Hey Cici: When you get the chance could you give us the final numbers for AN 2018? How many performers were in attendance? By my admittedly skewed perspective it looked like there were maybe 20-25 girls in the Sunday photo shoot. Over the weekend, I think I saw maybe 30-35 different characters. A list of who did what would be helpful. Did not get to see all the panels, but a summary would be nice. And how did the rest of the outings go? Kiki

    Amari: As far as antiperspirant goes, no woman wants her little black dress stained with a white residue from her deodorant. Neither does she want her white blouses stained yellow the same way. That's why manufacturers for Feminine deodorants go the extra distance to create formulas that don't stain. You just have to check the labels. Like I said the side benefit is that they usually smell nice and girly. That can be a bonus if your Kig girl is going to get close to her audience. I have it strai…
