Making Gin's mask for cosplay [Hotarubi no Mori E] by SPISIS Making Gin's mask for cosplay [Hotarubi no Mori E] by SPISIS
I recently got around to finishing my Gin mask for cosplaying!!! I read the manga a long time ago, but I just recently watched the movie for it!! Even though I already knew what was going to happen in the end, I still cried a lot!!! (Q ヘQ)

So I finally got off my lazy butt and finished painting the details on the mask after weeks of leaving it plain white.

I was so afraid to paint on it for fear of messing it up really bad, but it all turned out really well!! hahaha I'm happy with it!

I bought it from an anime store that used to be at the Great Mall (bay area), but the store is gone now.
Seems like they're pretty expensive online >~<

THANK YOU. This is great, since I messed up multiple times on making the mask itself ^^;

hehehe, yeah I had no idea how to make the mask itself, so when I saw the pre-made fox mask, I had to get it!

Another question, I got the mask now, all left to do is follow your guide :3

How did you find the flower patterns or create them?
If you made them yourself, are you willing to share them?

Thanks in advance, Endaviour

I actually haven't done his white shirt yet ><
I was just thinking I would have to paint on the yellow/purple flowers by hand...

Hey, do you know where you can order the generic mask online?

End of August I'm going to cosplay as Gin on Abunai!con and I'd like to make the mask too :3

hmm, I bought mine in an actual store that sold a lot of anime merch. I'm not too sure where to get it online but I found this one from J-Box:

Thanks, but I guess it's a little late now, the event is August 28, and the stupid customs always take several weeks before they send it to your home, meaning it'll probably arrive right after the event is done... THanks anyway, I'll look for a way to make it myself...

Ah, I see! I've never actually seen a mask in that shape before, so I figured it would be some complex process of paper mache or something. I love when things work out easier than expected. :meow:

It's a beautiful mask to go with a beautiful movie. I cried too! And the funny thing is, I knew what was going to happen! I had already read a manga with an extraordinarily similar storyline (It wasn't Hotarubi though, but I can't remember what it was at all!) and I could completely see that ending coming. But I still cried. And almost did again thinking about it later. :heart:

Thanks for sharing this!
