Very basic design idea


Costume Information

Time Taken : 3 weeks approx

I'm playing around with just a general guard/knight cosplay idea. The idea would be to make it a group cosplay rather than a solo one for more impact. I'm aiming to make it as basic & cheap as possible so that anyone of my friends can attempt it without worrying about being able to sew/afford it. Also hoping to make it comfy and durable.

Thanks, I hope so :D I'm hoping to get a group of us so we can make a bit of an impact. Although hopefully we'll last more than one battle/episode ;D

I'm really looking forward to seeing this! I hope things are going well with it so far!
I'm gonna be cosplaying Arthur (more than likely with Valentine_x XD) at the October expo, so I have my fingers crossed I'll bump into you :D

The cosplay is going well thanks! Just got the tabbard done and I need to add on the pendragon crest and then work out what to do for the undershirt. I've hopefully got another 4 knights/guards coming with me as well so we'll keep an eye out for you! I think we'd all have to get some pics together :D
