All done (Posted 24th March 2011)
Just finished the sword earlier this evening. I'm a little satisfied with the finished.
The blade is massive and rubbish. The handle is short and the sword is really heavy to hold (due to half a block of clay I used on it). Details were reduced because it wouldn't fit.
Thus confirms my completion of this costume.
I have a cape! (Posted 4th March 2011)
Jacket is done. The rest: Hat, cape, top and Salamander Sword.
The cape is a bit iffty. In the reference image, the cape covers around the shoulders. But that part just sticks out when I put it on. Will get this sorted today.
Also, I'm going to do a lot of exercises for the next coming days before Kita (I have gained a lot over CNY) D:
Semi-hiatus (Posted 16th February 2011)
It's been a while since I've been making the hat (and it's proven to be the most difficult piece!)
I'll be borrowing the wig I did for Falsetto for this cosplay. The wig is really frustrating! The front part doesn't sit with my face properly. I cut the front part with my rubbish skills and applied manga head putty all over. It looks slightly better.
Ffff, the hat is going to cover it =/ Once I've finish writing up my final essay, I can resume fully on the costume (which is two weeks time!)
Modifying hat (Posted 4th January 2011)
I've added extra parts to make the hat a little bigger to match the original picture. While it looks awesome, covering the fabric over is proving difficult D: I was initially planning to piece the patterns together before sticking it on the hat, but erm... no. I might have to piece the pieces together a different way.
Yosh (Posted 16th December 2010)
Okay, I think I'll merge the two tops together and a seperate cape. So far, I got pretty much the main bits to make the whole costume + cheap base hat.
I just need to know how to make the hat...
Should start now (Posted 8th November 2010)
My next term after Christmas will be hellish, which is probably best if I start on this right now (that is as soon as I get moneh rolling in).
I'd figured I'll be needing 4 to 5metres of red felt. Or is there something else I could use?....
