Since time immemorial, man has been unable to answer one burning question: why can't I look like a penguin? For centuries since the industrial age, countless scientists have tried to solve this conundrum to no avail. Somewhat recently, penguins have made a resurgance in the form of prinnies in the famed Disgaea series. Alas, you could only play as this strange, penguin-like creature in a video game.
Finally, someone has discovered a way to become one of these prinnies, giving man its first real chance to become a penguin!
My friend Tatto, is a big cosplay fanatic. In fact, if you follow cosplay closely, you've no doubt seen her or one of her friends featured in photos of various cons. Personally, one of my favorites was when she cosplayed as Fuka from Disgaea 4. And she recently made a small announcement among her friends that she was doing a cool little commission if she received enough of feedback.
So as you can see, I want one for myself. But no one makes one item for sale for only one consumer. When Henry T. Ford made his first Model T, did he make just one car for one customer? No! Mr. T made a whole line of Model Ts, where he then gained a vast fortune from his sales so that he could leave the car business and answer his true calling: beating up random thugs among a group of four disgraced Vietnam Wars vets who were framed for a crime they didn't commit. So if you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The A-Team!
In all seriousness, I really think this is the coolest idea ever. I'd want my own! Plus, I think it's such a cool idea, I want to see how far this goes. Which is why I decided to give her a little push here on the Dtoid Cblogs. I think it'd be cool as burrito beans if she got a little internet famous after her hoodies just blew up. So what do you think?
Copy/pasta starts here!
WHAT UP BABES ♥ so here's what's going on: I gotta do something to make some extra dough! Cosplay can get expensive, and real life usually does a good job of making your wallet weep too (currently gotta save up for a car, SUPER FUN) so I've been thinking of taking up some Prinny Sweater commissions!!
I've made several Prinny-related costumes before (and plenty of sweaters), and a few people have expressed interest in having a sweater made, so I wanted to make a big facebook post to continue to gauge interest!! They're basically designed like a conventional zip-up sweater-fleece (knit outside, fleece inside) hoodie, with added beak and eye on the hood. I'll be charging $60 for a basic sweater, +$15 for small wings on the back if you want them. Shipping will depend on where you are in the world!
If you have any comments or questions, please let me know! I'm still just gauging interest, but I'll be sure to update when I'll be ready to take these on. Winter is slowly creeping up, and comfy warm Prinny sweaters are perfect for chilly conventions! (´∀｀)ﾉ
I actually prefer this design but it's probably too expensive
So that's it! Maybe just some extra information so you can get to know Tatto and I'm just about out. Just imagine how cool you'll be at the next convention/party/wine tasting gala when you show up functionally dressed up as a fucking prinny! What do you think of the hoodie concept? Go ahead and leave your thoughts below because I'll be showing Tatto this blog.
