Costume Information

Possibly my next "big" cosplay after Teepo in 2014. While the clothes here are a bit more complex than Teepo's bodysuit, they don't appear to be anything too crazy. Of course, that assumption will no doubt change when I start tackling it. D:

From the artwork, the only really pronounced animal features Dust has are his ears, so I could get away with painting my face blue (save for the tip of my nose) and using the clothes to cover up the rest of me.

The Ahrah Blade is going to be an odd thing to make. While it's certainly the smallest sword-like prop I'll have made up to now (being a one-hand sword as opposed to Aeon's clock... thing and Teepo's longsword), the blade is quite an odd shape, especially with those pronged fins at the top.

I've never seen this design before but it looks super cool - really interested in how you're going to make the sword and the weird hat thing!

It begins! (Posted 21st January 2015)

Having just taken a trip to the epic Abakhan in Wales and bought a sack of various fabrics for both Dust and the Fidget doll (FOREVVVERRR... >:) ), I think it's safe to say this is no longer just "Planned". :D
