Kurogane (Normal) - Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle




Currently in planning stages!
Unsure how much I will get finished by LFCC, but I want to start this sooner rather than later, as it's probably going to take longer than a few days to do...

Things to do:
Shoulder armour
Arm cover things [forgotten the word XD]
Boot covers
Contact lenses

its not that hard of a costume to make.. sewing is really easy and armor aint bad ass long as you stay consistent with your measurements. Good luck!!!

I really like your Kurogane cosplay, you looked awesome. Makes me wish I was at LFFC on Sunday because I would have loved to get a pic with you in my Sakura cosplay, but I could only make it on Sat T_T

Progress Journal

First attempt finished!

So thanks to x-Blade-x and skyla-dream, I managed to make a cloak and top on the friday and saturday XD I love the wig, I'd love to have my real hair like that XD

*cough* anyways.
I will be improving this cosplay.
1) I need to make the shoulder armour.
2) I need to sew the cloak collar to cloak. I've noticed that you can see my shoulders/back in some photos.
3) Re-make the bracers and top. I used red paint to edge and it doesn't look very good. I want to use proper braiding.
4) Make boot covers.
5) Make another head guard, as I had my original one signed/approved by Vic Mignogna ;D
6) Finish the belts and add a sword sheath/scabbard for a sword.
7) Make Kuro's sword, "Ginryƫ".
8) Get red contact lenses.

I think that's about it. But I am determined to get this cosplay looking awesome~!

Abandoned the armour, it's 2am and I just can't do it.

Done the bracers, headguard, rough belts and leg belt thing. I'm gonna do the top and cloak tomorrow at skyla-dream's.

As a first draft, it doesn't look half bad. Not sure if I want to wear it in front of Vic Mignogna though. I'll look like a complete cosplay n00b with an unfinished cosplay XDD Oh well.

I'll finish tidying up and then go to bed :3 See y'all at LFCC~!

Rushing like a madwoman!

I'm kinda well known for my procrastination, but I'm never this bad XD;
LFCC is this weekend and I've only just started *head desk*
There will probably be progress pictures throughout tonight XD

At the moment I'm working on the shoulder armour, and then I'll move onto making the belts. Afterwards it'll be the headguard. Tomorrow at skyla-dream's I'll be styling the wig, making the cloak and *hopefully* the top.

This costume WILL be finished properly, but LFCC is just a test run of the first costume. I know I'll probably have to redo bits and bobs because I havem't done first drafts of anything.

Wish me luck! *zooms off*

Got the wig!

The wig arrived yesterday... but unfortunately the people tried to style it -.- that's the second time that's happened to me [the other time being on my Sephiroth wig].
I'm going to brush out whatever they did to it to make it spike the wrong way [n00bs] and restyle it. Once that's done, I can also make a start on the headguard thing, as the foam for that also came. I'm thinking about shaping it and attatching it to a stretchy headband with superglue, and then glazing it with PVA to make it shiny :3

When my Fai comes this weekend, she'll bring the black and red pleather with her so I can start on the top and armour ^.^

Progress pics soon!
