OP - Strong World is SCARY ... by Berpi OP - Strong World is SCARY ... by Berpi
Here's the first pic of me as CAPTAIN Usopp in all his cowardly brilliance, from Eiichiro Oda's One Piece Strong World!

Hes my favourite One Piece character so I was determined to do his highly-animated expressions justice. I truly enjoyed strutting around in this guys boots!

Im a novice cosplayer, so I relied on simple methods to bring this colourful, eccentric outfit together. His helmet was lots of fun, and Kabuto (the slingshot) was probably the fiddliest part, taking plenty of wire, elastic, reticulation piping, hot-glue, spray-paint, ingenuity and perseverance to get it all done. The nose was challenging and a little painful! Oh, and yes: the rest is just me and make-up. :)

Mutiny Go! Cosplay ([link]) had a fantastic time stomping around the local Botanical Gardens for our photoshoot with the incredible *Risachantag (kindly assisted by the amazing ~rallamajoop and ~Shastachan) at the beginning of June.

Usopp - me :iconberpi:

If I do it for too long, it hurts my face! ;) 
The other night, a bunch of One Piece cosplayers went to a sushi bar in town, and I was dressed as Usopp in his New World outfit, and the combination of his headphones and my expressions were giving me the biggest migraine EVER! D:
But I always try to make his faces because it just doesn't seem right without them!

No problem at all! I've been working on a Sanji cosplay, but I just can't seem to get the look right! Haha! But your Usopp cosplay is extremely spot on. Usually, you can see the lines of where the nose is and such, but the make-up and everything just beautiful! For a second, I thought he jumped straight out of the anime and manga into the real world! Wonderful job, and I can't wait to see more!

Berpi Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Sanji would be difficult, I think, especially for a girl. Are you trying to do him accurately, or are you gender-bending? I prefer it when people attempt to stick to the original look of a character, so I'm not really one for fems of male characters, but anyway. Good luck all the same. I think the hair is a key detail. Are you using a wig or your own hair? I'd love to see how it works out. :)
Thanks once again. I really appreciate that! I have to confess there was a *little* blending for the photo, but not much as I modified a nose myself and matched it to my own skin tone. I really wanted it to be as seamless as possible. In the end, for this particular nose, I actually had strands of fishing line fixing it to the forehead of my wig under the helmet as it got too heavy for the spirit gum! You can't see them in this photo, which is good. We didn't want to have to photoshop it much. :) 
Aw man I WISH he would jump straight out of the manga and into the real world! :D Then I could give him a big manly hug! ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by and encouraging me. I hope to do more Usopp in the future (esp. SOGEKING!) so I'll definitely post about it here.

I'll be watching for it! As for my cosplay, I was thinking of doing a "Prince Sanji" kind of thing with a little longer hair.. Would that be okay for an idea?

Ah, I think so! But I made my own outfit for him. I kinda have this thought that he really is a prince, but has permanent amnesia from when Zeff found him. I have a blond wig, but it's a little longer than Sanji's hair cut, so I thought--why not make a Prince Sanji cosplay?

Berpi Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Sounds fun! That's an interesting theory, too. :) I've often wondered how it was that Sanji ended up as an apprentice on the Orbit (before the shipwreck) as such a young kid. Like, did he have parents?

Okay you've done one of the hardest things a cosplayer can do = impress me!

the costume was wonderfully done... and I don't mean just the clothing or accessories like Kabuto (great work), I mean the full deal including the makeup. I see so many cosplayer fail at Usopp because all they do is the clothes/accessories & and long nose. They do not use makeup to make the nose blend into rest of the face, nor do they do the eyes/lips. Though one way to do a cosplay Usopp that way is just do full lips and long eyelashes (as that is how his features would translate to realistic fahsions) but your portrayal is perfect.

Your comment has me blushing nose to toe! XD
I so appreciate you stopping by to say that. I try really hard with make-up but my methods are so novice. I think every cosplayer wishes they had a make-up/prosthetics artist offering free service and materials at their disposal, but unfortunately we don't and just have to make do with ourselves! :P I really appreciate that you noticed how hard I tried. I am not Usopp, nor am I a guy, so I do my very best to be as accurate as possible in portraying his features and expressions. There's so much I wish I could do better, but that you say it's 'perfect' really means a lot. THANK YOU, FRIEND!
P.S: Love from Usopp and all eight thousand of his followers! ;)

You did good. I remember dressing up for Halloween and making my own alterations and attempts at makeup ... and I remember people liking it better than the pre-made costumes bought in the retail stores.

There are so many pics like that. I remember one pic that was 'suppose' to be Izo of the Whitebeard pirates... not only was the 'kimono' cut off at the knees, the sash wrong but the collar was oversized and foam-filled X__X

This is one reason I do try to comment when I do get impressed ... since its so to do so :LOL:

Props to you! :)

I think the biggest contributing factor to a good cosplay is the ability to get into character. Sometimes even a rushed, or even store-bought outfit can be improved just with that alone. I even sometimes try to get into the character's mind when I'm making outfits, or selecting materials. Like, "Is this your fabric, Usopp? Nah, it's too flowy. Not nearly manly enough. Try the canvas." ;) It helps so much.

OH - and I haven't uploaded any pics yet, but I did New World Usopp back in January and I improved the design of Kabuto! Each time I do a costume I learn new things - it's wonderful. You've reminded me that I really need to upload some more photos. xx

Thanks once again. :)
