|Auchinawa 2014 plans. Making Ravio for my husband.|
I really enjoyed the game and story and this is something that may just have to happen - awesome character, also purple, I'm sold. It will probably be my main cosplay for Auchi as it will take a lot of time and dedication to get both of these costumes to a standard I'm happy with. Also, it might be my excuse to finally save up for an embroidery machine (maybe, they're still pretty expensive) and maybe not have to paint everything by hand.
Will have to make a plushie Sheerow as well, and maybe a couple of the items for rent for fun props. Definitely going to have some fun with these costumes! Good thing the convention is nearby. Stay tuned!
Ravio Wig (Posted 27th March 2014)
If I plan to match the in game colours, then coscraft seem to do a colour that's pretty close to Ravio, but will obviously need to be cut and styled. Most of the purple wigs they do aren't quite blue enough for Hilda sadly, otherwise I would nab both wigs from them.
Hilda Wig (Posted 27th March 2014)
Started hunting out a few bits for this costume, so that I can get started on it over the next couple of months. I can't afford to order them quite yet but it's been pretty trying to find a purple wig in the right colour for Hilda, but there are several of these on ebay (which are pretty close in colour) so I might get hold of a couple and try straightening them a bit. Hilda has slightly kinked hair at the bottom (although most cosplayers seem to do her hair straight - but it's not quite) so I'll see what those wigs are like mostly straightened (but keeping a little kink) and go from there. If it doesn't work/they aren't long enough I'll try again with a longer wig in a slightly off-colour. As I have ears (from Malon) and my head size isn't likely to change, early construction will probably be focused more on the wig, staff and moulding the crown/belt/shoulder bits, as well as Ravio.
