Costume Information

Well, i just have to really. This time i will actually be the right height and stuff haha.

I LOVED the game, and i loved Hope the most! He really grew into a proper responsible and strong leader, and i feel his story is one of the more tragic ones in this game.

woo (Posted 25th January 2013)

i made moulds, i still need to get some resin though. but damn carving stuff was a pain, and i still have to re-make the larger emblem because i screwed up and snapped it :I

Wig (Posted 9th January 2013)

fin. i might add in some roots later but it will do for now, the sides also need a bit more styling too.

Planning (Posted 12th February 2012)

started looking into more references, especially for the emblems. i was deciding on a method so i can replicate a few of them (because for some reason he has them plastered all over his sleeves).

im aiming to get this finished (or mostly finished) before kitacon, so i can wear it then. but if i dont its no big deal.
