Daryan Crescend - Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney


Finally, someone who isn't blond! fsdhkjfhsklfhlkaslf

Why am I doing Daryan? The amusement factor, I guess. And his is a costume that has interesting details but doesn't seem impossible to make (or wear). Plus the hair! I cannot resist attempting the hair!

Hope this will go well...

[update Feb 2011]

Worn this twice now, and haven't really talked about it... well the wig is HEAVY. I adjusted it after the first wear, but still the paiper mache structure holding it is pretty solid and heavy, and it pressed against my forehead like fdhsjkfhkaslfas!!!!. The weight of it pushed my eyebrows down which is why in most pictures you see me going >:(. It's almost impossible to have any other facial expression when something is pushing your eyebrows down, I discovered. Also, when your forehead and eyebrows are dragged/pushed down hard enough, it starts to affect your vision! So when people said "look this way for the camera!" I was like, "uuuh?" and trying very hard to even focus my eyes.

But, eh, who needs the ability to see when you have epic hair? :P

Almost there!

Still boot covers

So I made both boot covers, put them on the shoes (2nd hand court shoes, £0.99 + £3.50 shipping on eBay) and proudly walked around in them. But then the girlfriend took a look and said, "The covers are floppy at the top." DDDDDDDDDDD: So I added red lining that's pre-stiffened with iron-on interfacing. Trying to make lining for something this irregularly-shaped was kind of hell. Anyway, I attached the lining and then sprayed some starch on for good measure. The covers are now drying on my door handles!

7th July 2010

Shoe covers

Started making them today, and got one done in one night! This was the first time I tried making shoe covers actually. Before this I always just bought dirt cheap shoes and literally painted/glued things straight onto them. Not too shabby, heh? Nothing's attached to the shoe at all so I can reuse them for something else. ETA: well it's not really done done yet. Need to paint the front and make adjustments to make it fit better, etc. I'll be buying one of those adhesive anti-slip soles so that I won't tear the covers at the bottom.

Lovely textured ceiling. :D

Haven't had the time to work on this for quite a while. The top is more or less finished and here's how it looks! Not that it's visible in the photo, but I messed up when putting the white edging along the hood - the one on Daryan looks big and fat, whereas mine looked like any regular edge (although I already used curtain blackouts rather than bias binding). So I took it off and tried again, this time allowing more fabric and actually stuffed it with toy stuffing. Then plastazote teeth were glued on. So now there is a big white edge complete with teeth! The top probably took 2 days in total. I've discovered that the material is so stiff I can't raise my arms when wearing this. XD

.............I don't know what to say. (Call 0800 316 7447 for your nearest d*ckhead????) (Sorry I've just had a bit to drink.)

Top, without lining

Pre-lining. Sewing the pieces together was so difficult because the material was completely unstretchy. Lost count of how many times I got poked by the needles that held the sleeves together as I sewed.
