|I absolutely adore Nausicaa, the film is one of my favourite films and the manga IS my favourite manga!|
There are two versions of Nausicaa that I hope to cosplay ^^
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!!
I'm not 100% whether to follow the manga or film design with their slight differences, I guess I may just make some kind of mix costume and see how it goes!
I really want to make her helmpiece, gun, sword and as many other things as I can :)
I'd love suggestions for making this as I have no idea about most of it yet :P

Things... (Posted 30th 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 14th 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.
