|I absolutely adore Nausicaa, the film is one of my favourite films and the manga IS my favourite manga, comic or book! So as much as I love the film I'm hoping to create the manga version of this outfit!|
There are two versions of Nausicaa that I hope to cosplay ^^ -the other will be her 'dress'.
This version is going to take ages to make/buy all the pieces, I'm not planning a certain con for it I'll just wear it to the first con it's finished in time for!!
|Make or commission top, hat and leg warmers||High||Planned|
|Make helm piece||Low||In Progress|
|Make a gun||Low||In Progress|
|Make gas mask/mouth piece||Low||Planned|
|Small brown bag||£0.00||To Buy|
slow progress (Posted 13th October 2013)
Ignored this project for a while but started on it again.
wig and sewing (Posted 14th July 2013)
Have cut my wig, not sure if I'm 100% on it yet but that's ok, I'll look at it again some time. Worried that the colour may be too bright :/also bought some earrings for this :) and have been making a mock tunic out of old fabric, it's going ok but I am struggling a little with the collar and sleeves, I'm sure I'll get there one day. Wip pics as soon as I can get stuff ready enough for pictures/opinions!!!
Gun (Posted 9th June 2013)
Spent a while making the gun, would love advice if anyone sees this journal entry. Once I'm happy with it I'll paper mache and gesso on top of the foam. I might be happy with it, I'm not sure, guna sleep on it and see what I think tomorrow :P
Things... (Posted 29th March 2013)
So I bought a wig and some leggings for this, turns out the leggings are way too thin (I had a feeling they might have been!) And the wig has a small amount of fake scalp showing (which I've never had before). The Leggings wont do at all so I need to find new ones, the wig however I've been reassured about so I'll keep that and hope for the best!
Paper Mache (Posted 13th January 2013)
So after I found all of the holes in the foam I decided to Paper Mache over the top. This has changed my overall plans for the helm as previously I was hoping to carve the details (such as the arrows) out of the foam, now I'm considering building them up out of cardboard and paper mache which is what I did with the detail on my Princess Mononoke mask (thanks to my friend Tedward for the advice ^^).
Probably shouldn't be starting a costume right now... (Posted 6th January 2013)
...but I had expandable foam and wanted to try and make something with it, my boyfriend suggested that I used it to make the helm piece that you can see in my reference pics, so we went with it.
