very nice! and well done on your first cosplay.
Just a quick question on the sword: what type of paint did you use to give it the metallic look ? and did you place anything on the wooden sword before painting it?

Hello,thanks you very much im very sorry for the late reply, havent used this site in a while xD For the sword all i did is paint the wood with silver paint which i think was metallic (i shall double check)...i remember thinking when i first bought it "oh crap i hope this looks alright on wood" haha. I simply sanded the sword with really fine sand papper (as you dont want to take away any of the shaping or grooves) then it was about two layers of paint and a layer of gloss to give it a slight shine and to just protect the paint abit ^_^

Peace Out Peeps
Ukitake! :)

Bring on May (Posted 25th February 2011)

Well, the costume is nearly finnished, just got to paint the Ito wrap on the sword (using a speical fabric paint) red, paint the hilt and Tsuba gold, reconstruct the Tsuba so it actually looks like the sword ukitake uses (whole idea durrr hehe) and ill be finnished. IF I have time and money (which quite frankly is fairly low atm, I have yet to buy my train tickets down to poor wallet :( hehe) I will sort out the Haori (the one i got has no sleeves where as ukitake has long sleeves!) although not massivly important I would still like to fix it if time will let me! :P

So Nearly Finnished! :P (Posted 8th February 2011)

Well I never thought this day would come but im almost finnished, after pretending to be ukitake in my room at uni for a few weeks with bits of tubing as my sword, I finally have a sword, i just got to re-paint the blade, re paint the Ito and then my costume will pretty much be offically finnished! ahhh I love progress! :) carnt wait to see you all at London, Just know its gonna be great! :D

So Close to Finishing! :D (Posted 5th January 2011)

Well the wig is ordered, just have to wait for it to arrive, carnt wait! When it arrives my costume will be complete, just got to suffur through uni until May. On that subject have done some calculations moneywise, im pretty much going for one day only, hotel prices in London are just so expensive! maybe another time eh ;) well thanks for reading. Hope to see you all in May and Good luck with all your costumes! ;)

Actually Doing Stuffz! (Posted 3rd January 2011)
