StalkMode: Gokudera

Hayate Gokudera.
The Tenth Vongola Boss's "Right Hand Man"
Volatile bomb-thrower / self-proclaimed genius.
Tendency to yell / alien-obsessor

This character is probably one of my favorites of all time. He's absolutely fantastic, what with the bomb-throwing, and the temper tantrums, and the angry faces...and the stubborn loyalty modes. And, like a good chunk of the characters in Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, his entire outfit doesn't have to be made by hand and patterns so modified that you've forgotten what normal sleeves look like.
Needless to say, I'm excited about working on this one. At the same time, however, I'm extremely sheepish about it as well. Its a fairly popular cosplay, and there have been some amazing Gokuderas. But I'm not here to lead the way to awesome-ness, nor am I here to follow the foot-steps of'm still determined to make it, simply because I love the character so much!

My biggest issue with Gokudera--aside from the accessories which I'm just not gonna think about for now--is the various versions of Goku. 

There's this casual version: 

 there's school version: 

 there's bandaged: 

there's future: 

there's this monstrosity:  

...he's like a line of Barbie dolls...only sexy.

I'm still pretty stuck on which one to choose...I don't have the money or the time to dive-bomb all of them, after all... xD;
Pretty sure Adult!Gokudera's a no-no though. Not only am I not nearly as tall as an adult, male Italian...I couldn't manage that "mature" expression...even if its Goku's version of mature. xD; 

We shall see! -fistpump-
