The leather jacket first worn by the darkness in season 4 was what i intended to have since the beginning. But I couldnt find it so i settle with the gray trench coat. I never really liked the coat so i had darkness ditch it in the movie. I was happy to have the chance to bring in the leather jacket in season 4, as i believe it completes the look. I believe adding the leather jacket would be a cool add to your costume, and you can leave the hat on, that way you'll be closer to my original intention lol
Ah. That's interesting, I didn't know that. I'm getting a leather jacket for a Tunnel Snake costume (from Fallout 3) for Halloween, so maybe I can use that. Thanks!
I think I'm gonna invest in some different gloves too.. I had to wear fingerless leather ones at Fanime so I could use my phone and get stuff out of my backpack. I just can't seem to get a good reference screenshot of the ones you wore in the series.
Tis a very good point, but I assume the reason people relate to it being a "He" over anything is, not only because of it always being male in form for the series, but also cause even in its shapeless/essence form it still retained the same, male voice. Had this wanted to be properly expressed (without having the Darkness ever shape-shift forms/genders), having the Darkness' voice be a merging of both male, female, and distortion (especially/mainly for its pure/essence form) would have solidified it as a genderless and inhumane being.
And now I'm getting to much into details here. ^_^'
Oh, loved the costume too, BTW. Forgot to mention that. XD
Yeah, that's a good point. I figured maybe it had something to do with Mario being its host, but the inclusion of the Darkness in its "pure" form in episode 75 kinda debunked that. But maybe it still had a male voice in its pure form to avoid confusing the viewers. Ah well. I don't know, the "THE DARKNESS IS A GIRL NOW?" comments just irk me regardless. XD Not sure why.
But yeah, thank you! :)
Great costume! Fell in love with it on Richies fanime vid on youtube. Now I just wish I had the time or the energy to make something like that. Know it doesn't look hard to do, but I get bored very easily xD
Thank you! It's not as difficult as it is time-consuming. I had to buy and dye and trace and glue and cut a bunch of stuff.
