Description
ASLO WORN AT HYPER JAPAN SPRING 2012
black star was my second cosplay as i loved his crazyness just like me :D
he was easyish as i had alot of help from my freinds .
the wig was the hardest part and ended up using a foam cone we attched to the wig itself using the cut of bits glued to it to cover it up. the vest was an old one i had lying around and the trousers came from a sport shop having a sale ( they were large so they could be high and baggy)we then sewed the black materials from other old bits to the bottom of the leg along with the grey strips i used a 2p and black marker to make the circles .the collar was from an old shirt and attached the grey bit to it the scarf type thing was more grey material and tied up at the back same with the belts . the shoes were big shoes my freond lent me she'd found in a charity shop we then made covers and linings from more grey material the stars were done by my freind who had a stedier hand than me. we used black tape to cover the stitching and reflective bits.
the weapon was made from wood cut out with help from freinds and family the top was attched to the handle via biscuits ( a type of join )and wood glue and painted by me and my freind the black chain was attched via "eyes" .all in all one of my good costumes as there was a soul eater photoshoot and i was the only black star at it on saturday.
PROBLEMS :
1.weapon top came lose after a while and needed repair at cosplay station / corner .
2.chain was black not grey / silver as it was to hard and werent sure on metal chain alowence/ weight.
3.wig was hard to style and used only one spike in the end rather than 3 others tend to use but look jsut as good in my opinion.
