Ouka - Shadow Hearts Covenant


I can't find a single other Ouka cosplayer on the internets, which makes me sad! The design is fantastic but also within achievable limits. Well, I love it so I've done it.

I've had fabric for it for ages, as I initially planned on making it for last Minami but ran out of time. Finally managed to cobble it together this year. It's not *technically* finished - I'm missing a lot of random brown straps that I just burned out too much to actually make and add on.

Having now worn it, I'm calling this version #1. Comfort and accuracy demand that I remake various bits of it before any rewears happen, but it came out OK for the first attempt.

When I saw this on my friends list I thought you meant HackSign Ouka! This is far cooler :D

I shall remake and rewear! Probably next Minami if the last two have been anything to go by in terms of Shadow Hearts groups...

Recommence project: OUKA

Right. This year she's definitely happening, so I've got out the fabric that I had bought for it last year, and assessed all the tasks I need to complete to get her done. The main difficulties will be with the visor and the tubing/mechanics on the back, but Phil has given me some ideas on what materials to use, so with some experimentation I should be set. There's a distinct possibility that I may end up using beer cans, which would be a first!
