Star Rod Kirby

Star Rod



The Kirby franchise is pretty much my favourite franchise of all time. It's also fun to make humanised versions of the characters because it's such a challenge!
I want my costume to reflect two major characteristics of Kirby: his childish nature and his warrior spirit! He's young and jolly but he's powerful - the anime in particular focuses on Kirby's training into a strong Star Warrior.
As it will mostly be pink clothing, I'm also using a yellow cape and star patterns here and there to represent the Warp Star and Star Rod. Speaking of which, the Star Rod is the weapon I will make to carry around as well.

I will wear this on saturday, and my mother will be with me as King Dedede.

I'm not entirely sure if I'll be there on the Saturday yet, but if I can make it I'll probably be Aradia from Homestuck :) [And thank you! Yes, I'll try to get Fumu done over the summer at some point, and I'll be doing Marx for definite in October.]
