Nariko Cosplay (Posted 2nd February 2011)
I brought a roll of white material and purple.
I made a boob tube out of the white material. I seprately made the sleeve that widens down the arm like a kimono. I put detal to the sleeve with strips of the purple mateial. I Then stiched the sleeve to the boob tube and added the purple detail to the bottom of the top.
I cut a large triangle out of the white material to make the skirt bit. I made sure it was long enough to droop at the top like Narikos does and long enough to reach the floor from my hip. I added the purple detail to the top. I stiched the skirt to a pair of white bakini bottoms.
The socks were a pain in the bum to do. I measured how long I wanted to make my socks and measured around my calf. Which made a rectangle shape which I stiched the sides to make a tube I drew around my feet twice. One set was for the soal the other was for the top of my sock. I put in the split toe in like Narikos. I cut a C shape out of the top pice from ancle to ancle. I stiched these two together to make what looked like a slipper then stiched that to my tube to make the sock I also added the purple detail around the top. And stiched a rectangle pice of purple material to the back and thredded a brown shoe lace up the back to give the corset look and a triangle pice to the front. I brought the flip flops.
She has a shield on her side which I cut out of foam and coverd with brown letherette material. I made the detail out of foam which I painted gold. I brought a long brass chain neaclace to add the chain detail she has on it I glued all ths to a belt I brought.
I made all the straps out of the letherette material.
I stupidly made the swords out of wood. Very heavy. I just drew the out line on a sheet of wood and cut it out and painted on the tribal detail.
