Hi everyone. This was my first seriouse attempt at cosplay at a convention. I was dressed as Inuyasha and had the luck to meet up and make friends with a very nice looking/pretty sesshomaru.!!! We are both girls by the way. I have to update some of the pictures on my site and I know I have to work on my posses but let me know what u guys think :)

Thats very good!! But, I think the Tetsuaiga's on the other side of his waist, I'm not quite sure *not much of an Inuyasha fan* And the sleeves look a bit odd They look like the sleeves on a girl's kimono, with the longer ends. I believe Inuyasha's sleeves just kind of gradually get wider going towards the wrists.

Aside from that, you did a [I]terrific job! A lot of people mess up on Inuyasha, congrats on making it look good! The necklace looks great, and the ears too! ^_^

That Sesshoumaru is AMAZING, give my props to your friend. :D

Wow that is really good! And as a Rin cosplayer I must say, your Sesshy is SESHOMARU-SAMA!!! Level.
Anyway, I looked and looked, and the more I look the more I find that I can't find anything wrong with your costume. It's really perfect. I absolutely love it! The only thing that you might want to do is get a longer wig, after all his hair is exceptionally long, but the wig you have now really doesn't take anything away from the costume.
I really like this, it's very good, especially for a first costume. Congrats on a great job! ^-^

You did a wounderfull job but about the slaves. They doo look like a womans and not a amns. As I looked at the mans they go tight at the solders and gets bigger at the rists the whte uder part is a little bit to small also. Other then that you did a wounderfull job. ^^

Oh my!! I remember you guys! You were some of the finer Inuyasha cosplayers I've seen! :bigtu: Your Inu wig isn't rats-nested and moppy looking (it looks really good!!), the ears are great too! I've seen so many people totally screw up the ears... But yes >P your Tessaiga goes on the other side (Though.. are you left handed?)

As for Sesshoumaru, -YUM- . The costume is gorgeous. I love the poofy-ness of the clothing, the sleves, the red/white pattern... all of it.

You two are an awesome pair! Wonderful job!

That's a wonderful Inu costume. Only comment I have is that his pants are Lantern Pants. They close at the ankles. Otherwise, most excellent!

I just wanted to post a quick reply on the comments every one has given me. For one thanks for looking at my pics and for the nice comments. I have to answer some comments thought.

1) "Inuyashas sword is on the wrong side." Well that depends if you are talking about manga or anime Inuyasha. Manga Inuyasha sword is on the right side. He is left handed. My boyfriend at the time who is left handed pointed out this fact to me. I double checked to make sure he was right. The Anime Inuyasha is right handed. I have to admit that I was not being true to either mang or anime inuysha I was just picking stuff from both versions. I plan to move the sword to the other side since my costume is more anime then manga version. Also I am taking some sword classes in hopes of improving my posing with the sword. side not: I just thought of this. I have been reading the Viz version of inuyasha and I am not sure if they flip the panel when they translate. That could be why I thought it he is left handed. Either way I am going to move the sword.

2) "the sleaves should taper at the under arms." I made my Inu shirt using a book called "the book of kimono". It shows you how to make traditional japanes clothes from your body measurements. I also did alot of research on Japanese clothes of that time period and I did not see any clothes that had sleeves (like European sleeves) that where small at the shoulder and went big at the wrist. Japanese clothes were made from squares of material. So they did not have much form to them. Sorry if this is sounding like a historical lesson on clothing but I did a lot of research on this topic and my findings came out as such. Also its hard to find much information on historical japanese clothes that are not just about kimonos. I also would like to point out that when my arms are down the sleeves look a lot like Inuyashas sleeves. My last point on on this sleeves subject, sorry, is I took this Japanese cosplayer as my example. I know just because its japanese does not mean its perfect or right but this person really takes the cake. They gave me the inspiration to do an Inuyasha costume. please check out these links, I really think they need there props.

for the last link you have to do a little searching and cliking around to see all the inu/sessh pics but its worth the work.

3) "the pants are supposed to be gathered at the bottom". Actually the pants are gathered at the bottom. I had made them kinda long so I just pulled the gathered ankle part a little high on my ankle so you cant see the gathered part.

But again. Thank you everyone for taking your time to look at my pictures and giving me your compliments and critiques.

Arigato!

Hi there abellabella,
first, Thanks for the compliment.
Second. Well I can't say that I remeber u,sorry. I took pictures with a lot of people those two days I went dressed up. The funniest one was when my friend and I posed with a kid about 4 years old. He looked so scared I was afraid we were going to make him cry. lol. He was cute. Do you have a copy of the pic you can send me. that would be cool. PMX? where is that going to be. Im in Los Angeles/Orange County Area.

Yah, Cloudette, Tetsiaga is only on the right side in the manga because all images are reversed from origional form when Viz releases them in the states so reader can read right to left as opposed to left to right as they do in Japan.

But that doesn't really matter, doesn't change that the costumes are VERY nice, and lovely, and you guys looked like you had such a wonderful time wearing them too!!!

Hey cloudette ^_^ will you be attending AX again this summer? I'd really love to see your costume again!

Hey cloudette ^_^ will you be attending AX again this summer? I'd really love to see your costume again!

Yes I totaly am going to go again. I wanted to fix up my Inu costume a little. Its is not much else I could do. but I wanted to get some fangs and I wanted to maybe add extenstions to the wig so it can be longer. I was also thinking of my next costume to be Risky from risky and safety but with the way time is flying by I dont know if I will get anything I want done. :( But if all else fails I always have my Inu Costume to wear. BTW. That costume IS HOT!! I thought I would die of sun stroke that day with all the fabric Im wearing plus a wig. I pretty much stayed inside as long as I could.

I hope to see you there.

Oh I know all about hot costumes @_@;, air conditioning is many cosplayers friend! I have a Kikyo costume too that I'll be doing (so there'll be myself and I believe abellabella is also doing Kikyo too) as well as Kagura. ^_~ I'll keep an eye out for ya!

abellabella
04-22-2004, 09:56 PM
Yes I will send the picture as soon as I can. I really hope to see u again at the pmx (hope u can make it!) and there will definitly be the need for another picture or two!! Yuuki your cosplaying as Kikyo as well? Fun! I will make sure to hunt u down so I can get a pic with u too!! Oh btw, Cloudette, what material was your costume made out of?

cloudette

Oh btw, Cloudette, what material was your costume made out of?

<Sigh> Finaly some one asks me that question. I felt so lucky that I came across that fabric because I was never able to find it again. It was red Faux suede that I found in the precut upholstery fabric section of a Joanns store. I have never been able to find that type of fabric in that color ever again. That is the main reason I was sweating it so bad when I was making my costume because If I messed up I would not be able to buy more fabric. I kept thinking fire rat when I was looking for the right fabric LOL and I thought that a faux suede would be just right. I felt really nice to the touch and, because it was kinda thick, it gave the costume good body, I think any way. :) lol

abellabella
04-24-2004, 01:52 PM
Wow, I have never even heard of that material! but Joanns is a pretty good store for fabric, a lil' expensive though for me. I'm sort of confused of what material I should use. I was thinkning polyester for the top and cotten for the bottom. I was told that polyester has a nice flow to it. LOL, when I see you at the convention I will make sure to touch your fabric hehe.

I'm having similar problems with the fabric used for my Kikyou robe... I CANNOT find anymore of it (I used the last of the roll).

It held up really well though, the fabric you chose >3, it looks really good. I think that it's good the fabric ended up being really nice to the touch - the robe came from Inuyasha's mother originally, and women generally like nice things ^_~

I just know that I'm going to COOK in my Kikyou costume @_@ hooray for air conditioning!

abellabella

lol that's right yuuki, air conditioning, a girl's best friend on hot days. Can't wait to see your Kikyo costume as well!

WOW! you two look SO awsome! especially your friend's sesshomaru costume! i was going to imagine being able to critique on the ears or hair but both of you look perfect! (i like both of your nails also) same to what Yuuki said. :) great job!

Very nice, both costumes. Excellent job paying attention to detail. I luv your photos of them too. XD You must've done quite a bit of research.

Could I ask about your swords (real or not) and about Sesshy's armor(what its made from)???

cloudette
04-28-2004, 10:43 AM

The swords where the fake costume ones you buy at a costume shop. And Shesshys armor. My friend made it out of sheets of pvc plastic. She and her friend heated the plastic and bent and molded it around her body. I know she also used some kinda foam and then she molded the spiky thingys by hand. I have to say I cant remember exactly what she did. We meet and became friends that day LOL...

04-28-2004, 09:36 PM
That must be great though Cloudette, becoming friends so fast like that. Is she going to go the convention in May or July?

hee hee well i must say for your IY costume i found nothing wrong, the sit beads are done beautifully and tetsusaiga impresses me too, maybe the wig should be a little longer, it usually goes down to his waist area, maybe an inch or so longer but thats not that necessary hee hee, hm........also telll sesshoumaru that the costume it the best and i LUV the fluffy ::pets it absentmindly:: hee hee great job!!!!!! and also i like the under kimono, alot of ppl forget to do that and it bothers me !!

awesome job

did you handsew it? if you did you should be proud...i kno the pain lol (did the traveling sango costume by hand, except for buying the kirara plushie ^_^*)

:bigtu:

nice job on the silver hair many dont have that. but I think it could be a bit longer, it kinda looks like Rinoa (FF8) dyed her hair silver.

the handle wrappings need to be brown

uhh lets see I like the costume over all ^_^

I'm not really that picky O_O about details

Rameana
07-31-2004, 10:06 AM
I never got to say how much I really liked your costume. I looked at your costume and you inspired me to do more detail with Kouga, because I looked at this before I completed him. Also I kinda did the same as you, which was combining and Manga and Anime versions.

I look forward to playing InuYasha one day was well, and I just hope I can do as well as you. ^_^

OMG!
It's my friend Cloudette!

Actually you are the one that gave me courage to cosplay InuYasha with attitude!

I love your costume and I think it's the greatest! You should make an actual sized Tetsuaiga for it!

Cute!
