Gengar King

I’ve been a fan of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure awhile now and my friend convinced me to go ahead a read part 7 (Steel Ball Run). And I instantly fell in love with Diego Brando’s character, design, and abilities. I’ve seen so many Diego cosplayers but there’s this one part in the manga where he goes hybrid and I LOVED that design and noticed it was absent from the Jojo cosplay community. So I took it upon myself to do it as my biggest project yet.

I bought the morph suit and cut the headpiece off. It was all that light blue originally. Every other color on there I hand painted free hand. I had a friend help me make the tail and then I also painted it. From the neck up is all face paint. I painted and did all of the designs on my own. I did have someone help put on the bald cap and cover areas I couldn’t see but that’s all. The feathers were attached to the bald cap with wig tape.

My advice for any new cosplayers is to take your time. You aren’t gonna get it perfect the first time. Just keep trying and learning and you’ll get better and better! The most important thing is to have fun!
