|Badou's a bit of a clotheshorse. Like CLAMP characters, he seems to change costumes about once a chapter, and he never quite wears the same thing twice. Becuase this costume was meant to be a cheap one, I put it together as an aggregate of different things he's worn in the manga. The camo shirt pops up a few times, and he's had about eight different boilersuits as far as I can see. I just picked a nice wig and ran with it.|
Boots I already had; boilersuit was £1.04 on eBay, and the buttons I changed on it were £1.80. The wig was about £15.00, and the elastic for the eyepatch was £1 or so, I think. First time I made the eyepatch, I accidentally made it looking into the manga as if it were a mirror, so it was backwards. It took me ages to remake it! It's old trouser fabric and felt. I'm pretty happy with my work on the wig, but it kept frizzing up! It would tangle so badly, and the tangles would never brush out well. I probably won't be able to wear it again.
I pinched the belt from my cosplay buddy (who's in a couple of my photos as Haine), and the same goes for the shirt (it used to belong to her mum, actually). Pretty easy to put together, pretty easy to wear. I enjoyed this.
