Riku - Kingdom hearts 2


Realized that my Riku costume was the ONLY costume that I've made that hasn't been posted here haha xD... I'm not proud of this costume at all but meh I'll post it up anyways as I have a load of other bad costumes up here anyways XDD

Well Riku was my favourite character in KH2 which was my obsession back then! x3 And since I was still a complete newbie at cosplay I thought Riku's KH2 outfit would be easy to make ^_^

Most of this costume was modified from existing clothings as I didn't have a sewing machine nor knew how to use one back then =/... My parents, mum especially, certainly weren't very happy with me cutting up my old jeans and school shirt LOL! Ahhh well xD;; Since my wig failed and I had no idea party wigs were such bad in quality I had to spray my hair white at the last minute grr >_<... 3 bottles of white spray and my hair STILL wasn't covered! Even after I cut it short! D8 Not to mention the spray in dye was soooo bad >_< [and left me running out the room gasping for breath every 10 seconds haha! XD]

Costume is officially retired... Hope to remake this costume completely and actually make the jacket one day... and get a wig! ^_^ But it's a fairly simple costume... so this might be one of those costumes which I want to make when I want to take a break from other time-consuming costumes haha xD

Thanks for the comment on my Mello <3 I think your hair looks awesome here, much better than other Riku's I've seen (and a couple of wigs as well). And if I can get the Riku cosplay I hope to make one day as good as this, then I will rest happy 8D

Hmm I do agree I loved your Riku. It was the start of the awesome-ness to follow. Spraying your hair was so funny, next time we'll do it outside ;DD Seeing this cosplay reminds me of all the antics of getting to the expo and you finishing it in the car...Ah good times XD

I met you when you wore this (was a long time ago!) and either my friend or I took the second photo you have up - we both thought you were an awesome riku!
