COMPLETED!!!! (Posted 27th April 2014)
IT'S FINISHED!! I FINALLY COMPLETED IT!!
I have wanted to do this cosplay for so long (I worked out earlier that it has been about 10 years) and now it is finally completed!!
The last three days has been a solid, none stop sewing while I made Hakama for my Kikyo as well as her two kosodes but I have also made a full Inuyasha costume along side it at the same time!!
Who knew something so simple could be so hard.
Turns out we went alittle overboard with fabric purchases though ^^;; Oh well I'm sure I can use the left overs for future cosplays!
Progress through procrastination (Posted 25th April 2014)
As weird as the title sounds, it is true. I have made progress even though I have been procrastinating.
the arrows shafts themselves have been sanded enough so there was a rough edge for the pain to stick to. I managed to mix up some paint of the perfect shade of fresh sanded wood. I have also made the arrow reads out of foam and now just need to finish forming them before dding the flights.
I am slowly getting there. in a hurry now though as I have tomorrow to finish both my Kikyo and the Inuyasha cosplay ready for a little mini con called Manga Bazaar in Manchester. This includes styling the wig as I have yet to do it (luckily not much needs doing to it)
Bow and Quiver (Posted 10th April 2014)
It's taken me too days but I've managed to make a full sized bow (in proportion to me in terms of height in comparison to Kikyo with hers)
I've managed to make a quiver out of the scraps of card left over from the bow so now all that is left in terms of props is the arrows which I shall begin work on at the end of next week ^^
Progress! Finally! (Posted 7th April 2014)
That's right! I finally have made some progress!!
Back to the topic ^^;; I have just spent the day working out all the details and making a list of everything that I need to make and finally complete this cosplay to it's highest potential.
I shall be wearing this Manchester Expo this year (2014) (Unsure as to whether Saturday or Sunday)
So that is the big progress!
And I would like to state for the record, finding a decent, easy to follow tutorial for a bow of this length is near impossible and I am having to piece together from multiple ideas, suggestions, tutorials and guess work, so wish me luck.
