Hikaru (Battle gear) - Angelic Layer




I've always wanted to do a Hikaru cosplay and after taking a break from cosplay to have a baby i want to do something awesome to make up for not having done it for a while.
Costume is made from PVC and is completely hand stitched as i had an arguement with my sewing machine and lost =(
i used foam for the wings at the back, the headset, the forearms and the back of the hands.
the hardest part was the shorts, they connect to the swinsuit like part and arn't actually shorts at all. i didn't have a pattern to work with and had never done this before so it was the hardest bit for me.
the easiest bit for me sewing the yellow patches on to it all and drawing on the detail.
i learn't alot when making this cosplay, how to cut foam to shape , how to stitch PVC so that it would hold firm and never to wear it in warm places.
wearing this cosplay was painful at first as i wasn't sure i'd be able to sit down without ripping it or cutting the blood to my legs. after a while i figured it out and everything was great after that XD
I wore this at the mcm expo october 2010 and ocotber 2011 XD

This is a totally gorgeous costume, and I can't believe it's all hand sewn >< You did such a good job on it! I greatly admire your patience and it paid off, you look fantastic.
