|Time Taken :||2 months|
|Although this is going to be by design a simple cosplay, i am going all out to make it as refined and finished as possible. I have uploaded this cosplay before and sadly never got around to making it simple because i couldn't figure out how. There are still things i have to work on to figure out how to pull off but they will come in time.|
If (money providing) i can then i will be making his deviant blade (Hakuto Hari) having sourced enough materials to be able to construct it.
Not setting a date for this just yet but definitely will be happening next year!

Wig times! (Posted 11th March 2012)
So initially I wanted to incorporate wadding into the wig itself to emulate the cloud like feel his hair has. But after watching the episodes running up to their meeting with Sabi, I learnt that his hair is in fact so matted and unkempt that the cloud like element to it is to represent this.
milestone! (Posted 28th February 2012)
Fabric sections complete! Tomorrow will be ornament making and then wig fun!
Nearly there! (Posted 26th February 2012)
So update time! The bulk of what needs to be worn is complete. The last few things required will be to pop the 2 belts through the machine and attach snap fasteners and velcro. Then it's onto ornament making.
Progress update (Posted 20th February 2012)
So thus far things have been going relatively smoothly, that said my wig has arrived and I have yet to attempt the hair, leg and collar ornaments. Since taking the progress shot I've had to un-pick the lycra sleeve to tidy it up. Also in order to secure the sleeve piece I'll be piping the edge and using Tue excess cord as a tie to make sure the sleeve stays put. Other then that the leggings, belts and wig are what's left on my list.
As a side note I'm unsure as whether to attempt hakuto hari given I don't own a jigsaw to cut the perspex I was going to order. If in doubt I'll just have to rock up with a parasol. That's all for now. Expect wig rage in the forth coming weeks!
Quick Update (Posted 13th February 2012)
Cut the swathe out last night not long after updating my journal! So far the skirt has been sewn as has the yukata top. To top that i've overlocked the seams on the yukata and will do the same for the skirt when I have been out ot gather more reels of thread.
Update (Posted 12th February 2012)
First and foremost i've scratched the wig. I caved and bought a 48" white one that i can style and add wadding to. I figure instead of trying to blindly make a wig it'd be easier to integrate wadding throughout the wig itself with a a large portion of it culminating at the base of the ponytail. Then I can fancy it up with streaks and whatnot later.
Wig fun! (Posted 2nd February 2012)
In order to push myself this year i've set myself a few tasks cosplay wise. The first is wig work. Sabi will prove to be quite a challenge in that respect, in so far as that he hasn't so much got hair but a cloud stuck to his noggin!
To that end i'm using a dense wadding I managed to procure from work (left of 'snow' from our Christmas windows) and will be working with it to produce that cloud effect.
Stay tuned for more wig fun times!
