OKaaay, cosplay breakdown time:

Coat: Made from a custom pattern out of thin pleather. Wasn't too hard. The open part was made smaller than the orignal since, well, I have non-manly assets : x The bracelets on the wrists were craft foam spray painted and sewn on. The straps in the front did up inside, the front was secured with a buckle. I didn't do the buckles down the coat like it AC, I prefer the orignal.

Armor: This was the hardest. After failed attempts at finding materials for plastic armor, I decided to use a method more familar to me. I made the bases out of chicken/fence wire (just like my Freya and Vivi hats), once they were the correct shape, I put on a gazillion layers of papier mache. I used an acryllic finish over the hardened armor to add strength. I spray painted them serval times, tiedthem together so my arms could move and attached velcro on the inside to attach to the coat.

Pants: You can't see them, but they are basic leather pants and were a bitch to sew.

Boot Covers: I'm glad you can't see them, they turned out terrible xD

Wig: I bought it from cosplaywig on ebay. The colour and length was ready for the cosplay, but I had to have the front layers cut and hair spray in the bangs properly.

Sword: A mixture of work from mostly my step dad and boyfriend. I helped out a little : x Thanks you guys for the help :3



I think it turned out well, hopefully I'll be posting more photos soon.

Wow really like the fabrics you used.
The wig is really nice too, I've seen so many sephi cosplay ruined because they had a fluffy wig. But yours is nice n silky.

"Advanced critique encouraged" eh?
MMMm I'd say the next time you make armor try carving out insulation foam, then coating it with bondo. Or carving wood and coating with bondo, depends on what your making. Prime it then paint it.
As for the ends of the wig, to get rid of that "square" look when changing a length. Cut the bottoms in very small upward triangles. Turn the scissors upward and just keep snipping the ends. I've seen the hairdresser do this to mine a few times to get it to blend instead of being square.

Again nice costume :) I cant wait to see the rest! *hugs*
