View Full Version : Does it need more help, or should I be at peace (Inu yasha revisited)
03-25-2004, 12:04 AM
A While back i posted my Inu yasha costume here to see what help it needed that i may have missed. After taking many of your great tips to heart, and finding the time and money to do it, I present to you Inu yasha 2.0!! :jjacks: What do ya'll think?? Is this as far as my cosplaying techniques can carry this hanyou, or can i prehaps go further to reach a kind of cosplay perfection??? Just let me know! All advise is welcomed! Ja ne for now! Arigato Mina-san! :)

Well i think it looks great, and you get his faces perfectly^^ The only thing i'd change a bit is the wig, don't get me wrong, it is by far the best Inu wig i've seen in a long while, simply some of the horizontal lined are too straight. On the side tassles and in the back. I would try to layer them a bit, remove the straight lineness of them, this would make the wig look more real and aesthetically pleasing.

LOL - I love the expression when you're pooking at the plushie. It's perfect. And very nice job with the claws.
Only two quick suggestions:
1) I think the cord that laces through his sleeves is black rather than purple and
2) (along the lines of what HyperrMouse said) Having the wig cut straight across the back looks a little odd. I think Inuyasha's tapers more, along the lines of \/ rather than |_|
But you do make a great Inuyasha!
I love the bangs on the wig! However did you do them?

By far one of the most accurate Inu's I've seen in awhile. Thankyou for not putting white strips on the shoulder! The wig needs a little work, but it's still the best one I've ever seen. You also did the claws which is something most people forget. Kudos!
Also, you got the little string thingy. That's something I've only ever seen one other person put on the costume. As Strongbad would say, "You get a gold star!" ^^ It looks great.

Ooh! Its an Inu! ^^
I think the strings going around his sleeves should be black, like KusanIvy said, and a little bit thinner than the ones you have there.
The wig is also nice and long--props for the cool bangs! As a few other people said, try to make the ends of the wig look less blunt and more natural. Inuyasha's hair is also a lot thicker and poofier than that; you might want to find another white wig [doesnt have to be as long as that one] and wear that underneath it to make it seem more full. The wig you have seems more Sesshoumaru-ish in its thiness.
Aside from those two things, this is a really nice costume! There are very few good Inuyashas out there [i've seen his clothes made out of satin...yeek!] , even with the costume's popularity, and youre one of them. ^_^ Great job!

I never quite understood the penchant some people have for making everything out of Satin... I've even seen Kikyou done in satin. Why would a Miko wear something like that? At best her outfit would be sturdy cotton.

Props to you! Cool InuYasha costume. All I can say is the laces on the sleeves are black...but everyone's already said that. And the hair in the back is layered more. Other than that, completely awesome.

Oooooooo...........such good input!! *writes rapidly* Input, Input, Input!!! :jjacks: Thank you all sssoooooo much! I'll get on these right away!
Hmmmmmmm, thicker hair.............. that sound's like a good idea you have there Sickness-san, though i'm not sure i'll be able to match up the color of another wig. It's such a strange white......hmmmmm.............. I must ponder this further......
Ah, the laces in the sleeves..........yeah...........Well, my only valid excuss is that i was looking at manga Inu yasha and not the anime one when i first finished it. Oopps! :thumbsup: My mistake! *goes off to find black ribbon*
Thanks again, Mina-san! Your perfect eyes and observations have inspired me even more! *stands on rock, waves crashing behind* I Will Make This Cosplay Even Better!!! *gets back to work*
