View Full Version : Momo needs help with her sword
08-27-2010, 05:06 PM
Hello, I cosplay Momo and I love her so much I bought a replica of her sword. I'd like to wear it around ALA (which allows such things), but I'm not sure how to hook it to my side without the weight pulling down my hakama or something. I've tried slipping it under the white ties, but it always turns itself upright within seconds XD
Is there a trick to doing this properly? Or should I just give up and carry it around by hand?
(forgive me if there is already a thread on this. I did search for one!)

Perhaps have somebody tape the sheath around your waist, and then slip the white bow over the tape? That way, it'll still look like the sheath is protruding from underneath the white ribbon thingie ( sorry, I've only ever done Ichigo to this point so I havn't needed to work on carrying a sheath yet )

That might work except...How would I get it off and back on to use the facilities? XD I could use that for a shoot though, thanks :)

Maybe you can attach it to a belt?

For me, my swords are balanced somewhere between the midpoint and the guard, and I stick the sword in my belt so that the white ties cover that spot. This prevents the sword from turning upright. Also, you need to wear it with the curve down, that is, with the "sharp" side up, which helps keep it balanced.
