i want to cosplay as inuyasha, but the costume is proving some difficulties. I'm not sure of the patturne of the robe (is there a patturen i could find?) and the sword, how do i make one that large and yet fairly light so i can carry it around and not kill myelf or other bystanders?
Any comments would be helpful!
:bouncer: Iz sooo cute!

ok For the rode all you have to do is get a kimono pattern and ajust the sleaves, basicly there just big sguared off triangle. then to get the slit just sew the sleaves on partway around. I have a diagram I made for someone when they asked how I made mine but I don't know where I put it. But if you want it just IM, PM or e-mail me I would be glad to help you.

Anyway I made my Tessaga out of cardbord, but I do not remend it, it does not really hold togeather well. I am in the prosess of making my new one out of Halow wood for Otakon.

My Inu Yasha costume (if it helps any?)

One thing I do recamend it that you look at alot of peoples costumes and see what you like about it and what you would do diffrent, that is what I do for the costumes I make, But a few I did Iwas walking blind. But its a good way to get an idea of what you want yours to look like.

I'm not sure about the sword, but if innocent bystanders do get in your way that is their fault. You'll have huge sword, come on! Wouldn't that signal to someone, "Let's not get in swing/fall range." Maybe it's just me.

Ya I waked a few with mine.... but not on purpose of corse ^^

BTW I am still looking for that thing... where could it have gone?! oO well I am fixing to make a new one I I dont Find it.....
Well keep us informed on the progress of your costume!! When are you plaining on cosplaying in it? What convention?

im hoping for katsucon, the sword may take the longest, it all depends on that enemy called time......yah! u know who u r!!!! don't hide! i see u!!!!! :::::runs after time to give it a beating:::
note: this could be the reason time is always against me....

There's a thread in the Costume Help forum that I made that tells you how to make your own Tessaiga. It takes awhile, but the results look pretty good. Check it out - it's how I made my own sword ;)

Nyoko

Med tape and sports bra. you just got to get use to it, it takes some time, hint breath out when binding that way you can breath, >< I got some bad storys to tell about that one... (I do alot of crossplaying)

Melchior
11-23-2002, 01:18 AM
Hoo boy.. Looks like me and pip should start running now. Although we're planning on trading costumes for awhile at Otakon, so I get a chance to be sesshoumaru before I finish my own costume. Should be cool!

I got mine in florda when I went on vacation. Chibi do you know were Fairoaks mail is?? I I thought they had a wig store there, but I could be wrong. >< they change that mail so meny times., Dailes (sp?) town center might. they have evrything

chibi-dj

Not a prob ^^ just helping, well I live about an hour or half an hour away and I need to go look for a few wigs I need, I wonder if I can get one the SAME color as my Inu Yasha wig, I wanna add some hair to mine to make it longer and thicker.... I need to look next week.

chibi-dj
11-24-2002, 09:26 PM
mmmm...what'd u all do for the necklace and claws? press on? i want something that'll stay, but not require me to sever any limbs.....

sailor-moon
11-24-2002, 09:44 PM
the best is to get false nails, and when you glue them on dont put a lot of the glue on them , then when you take them off it doesnt hurt ...that much! just kidding, they should come off nice and easy

Nyoko
11-24-2002, 10:52 PM
I made my necklace by mixing the color paint that looked right then geting some native beads and claws and painting the beads.

chibi-dj
11-24-2002, 11:05 PM
oooo...another question....EARS!! attach them directly yo the wig or have a head band thingy?

Nyoko
11-24-2002, 11:10 PM
I attached mine directly to my wig.

sailor-moon
11-24-2002, 11:29 PM
yea, attach them directly, mine are

Nyoko
11-25-2002, 09:09 PM
Ya I think its the best was to do it. You dont have to worry about the head band showing or poping off or falling of when your jumping around.

Melchior
11-25-2002, 10:39 PM
Mine are on a headband.

Yea, I actually like it that way better. It gives the costume sort of a comical look to it. Thats why I like it.

Nyoko

Well, I finally got a picture of my Inuyasha costume. However, because of my pose, the poofyness of the pants doesn't show very well. The pants are 48 inches around my ankles EACH. O_O;;; ..... Dang, it wasn't until after making the costume I decided I didn't make the sleeves flared enough. And it's too late to fix that.... BAH!

Nyoko
11-30-2002, 03:55 AM
^^ nice.
I have to find time to go to the mall and fix up my costume and start a new one... ~.~ If only time stop was posabole....

12-01-2002, 11:19 PM
Well were on the subject of inu yasha costumes. I need you all to tell me what you like and dislike about my costume so I can make changes to it so it looks nice. I want the truth please. http://cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/detail.asp?costumeid=3314 ok my costume for all you who do not know what it looks like.
