Ken Ichijouji

Digimon Adventure 02

He may have the most boring costume design in all of Digimon's many series, but I knew I was in trouble the minute he opened his mouth and out came the voice of Romi Park.  There's never been a Romi Park character I didn't love, and Ken Ichijouji was no exception.  He goes from being this awful villain, to a soft, tormented-but-redeemed 'hero', and if that isn't written especially for all my weak points, I don't know what is.   I fell so hard in love with this kid that I knew I had to cosplay him, regardless of the dull ensemble that is his school uniform.

Costume Construction

As always, starting at the top, the wig is an Arda "Inigo" in Dark Blu, with custom cutting/styling by me.  

The uniform is made entirely of a stretch suiting that was on sale.  It's not a perfect shade, but I wasn't about to dye stretch denim.  I hate making pants, and knew I needed them to be made of a stretch fabric if I didn't want to look stupid in this outfit.  All the exposed pieces of the white shirt, are fake -- they are facades sewn directly into the jacket, which closes with a hidden zipper off-set in the front (in order to create an overlap and avoid any exposed areas underneath.  The symbol on the neck of the jacket is appliqued/satin stitched, and the buttons were ones that I had leftover from a previously abandoned project.  

The shoes were an old pair of work shoes that I cleaned up and re-purposed (originally bought at Walmart).
