Im so happy to hear all youre coments! so many of them....cant stop reading

Wow. No one commented on your costume after 1 whole day. No wonder you're devastated.

Alrighti, avid X fan commenting~
Shirt: Looks good, for that extraness you ought to put that gold band/symbol on the collar. You also need a white long sleeve dress shirt under the jacket.
Pants: I suggest flat fronted pants, w/ straight legs and ironed in creases if you want to be totalli accurate.
Cloak: I like... you mai want to make the collar wider, as his is quite large.
Sword: I'd love to see a better pic! The sword is the bestest if one can get it right. In the first pic though, I love the wai it's wrapped in red fabric, nice touch.
Anithing else: Pale makeup, but not too pale. Maybe some eyeliner to accent your eyes and give it that CLAMP feel. The hair isn't totalli right, but I assume it's your own and not much can be done about that...... *nods*

Wigs can be your friends. I love wigs, no realli. You just have to get used to them. XD Go see mi hair, that's what I have to stuff under a wig so you can't complain XD
Aniwho... you just have to give it time, you haven't had your costume up veri long. I'm sure more people will repli or comment, don't judge them before they have a chance to sai anithing.

If it is not then i suggest the handy dandy iron :-) i I really would like 2 see a pick o the sword, what did u make it out of anyway? Oh yeah and i havent made any friends either! Oh well such is life :-)

Calm down about not immediately receiving a torrent of comments. This isn't the most active forum, and it really really annoys people.

I don't recommend a shiney material for the cloak. It contrasts poorly with the main costume, and is not very Kamui-like. It gives the cloak a purchased at a hallowen shop kind of look.

are the cuffs sliding up because your arms are raised or are the sleeves just too short? If it's raised arms, see if you can figure any poses that keep your shoulders down, if not, you could cheap by extending the red banding further.

Why won't you wear a wig? Have you tried wearing one in the past?

does by cloak you refer to the cape?

11-22-2003, 01:07 AM
Yeah, she cloak means cape^_^
I'm still super interested in seeing that sword. I think I'm gonna make one miself. *wants to see the sword realli bad*

There's a big difference between halloween store wigs and good quality ones so don't automatically assume it'll be bad. Check out this site for some good anime wigs:

I have a pick about the photography: get closer. All the full body shots are really far away and the only close up shot is blurry. Your costume is good, but you need someone to take better pictures of you in it. Ok, I'm done.
