Rurouni kenshin

Cosplayer: Bambi.

Variant: Ninja

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

23rd March 2011: Finished! Ok.. this has been finished for a LONG time minus the wig but that will be a last minute job. I just thought I would try it all on together to see how it all looked =)

The wig is still a lil flat but its looking ok =) The polystyrene balls havent really worked so I might just have to put in small hair ties in to make it puff out.. everso slightly >< Fail balls!! xD

17th November 2010: BOW!! <3 I actually thought I was going to fail TERRIBLY at making this... but I'm actually quite impressed with myself. Althought now I look at it... I may have put a BIT too much interfacing in it xD We will see I guess! I havent thought of an ingenious way of attatching the bow to the rest yet but I will brainstorm at a later date :p

I willbe making the extra parts for the gauntlets and the bandages for my ankles next and then apart from le wiggywig! She's almost done! I knew she would be one of the easier kita cosplays but I didnt think it would be THIS easy... (hopes I haven't just jynxed myself! o.o)

I found the tutorial for making MAKKA bow on cosplay.com which is AMAZING for tutorials :) (although I wanted it bigger >.<) Thanks to phantomthief for providing the tutorial. If anyone needs the link for it just message me if you cant find it =)

I'm considering making the ribbon parts a bit longer so they dangle more. Or I may just add another section as I have extra fabric hehehe =)

13th November 2010: Better? I finished my second go at this earlier in the week but my memory card got corrupted and lost my pictures, then I couldnt find my cable to upload different pics.. Soooo yeh! xD I'm not sure about the "sleeves" (if you can call them that) Cos they sit a bit funny on my shoulders but I might just have dodgy unmatching shoulders :s

I have also made to shorts but just need to decide on what waistline to do (drawstring or elastic) *shrugs* the shorts are quite baggy on me like Misaos but they dont look it in the photo... sorry >.< I have also made the arm things for the start of the gauntlets I just need to make the other bits for it but I'm gonna chill with that for a while :)

Next on my agenda..... the.... er.... *gulp* Bow for the obi CHARLOTTTTEEEEEEE!!! xD <3

9th November 2010: Fail vision >.< Started work on my gi for Misao and thought I would be cleave and use a bedsheet mwahahahahaa..... Good in theory... but my fail eyes didnt tell me the colour wasnt exactly right >.<

So... me being me... I made the Gi as a mock up and gave myself a day's thought to decide what I was going to do... I plodded to Hobbycraft with Ant and found a better colour. Which he lovingly paid for <3 bless him! So I have done another version of it and just need to adjust the "sleeves" then it is completely finished.

I will be working on the shorts tonight as they are pretty simple. I just need to work out whether to make a drawstring or elasticated waistband o.o Decisions! grrrr!

I will post photos up as soon as poss hehe =)

YAY progress! But I personally believe the main colour should be a bit darker but the lighter colour on the edges is perfect! But all in all I really like it ^^ Just as i said maybe the main section should be a bit darker ^^ Up to you though Misao!

Looks lovely so far but I am going to have to agree about the colour of the main body part, should probably be a deeper shade of blue....maybe the picture has just washed alot of the colour out?

Looks a darker shade of blue, but instead of redoing it all why don't you dye it? It would be a lot cheaper : )
