Hey .Hack fans I think I'm the first person to seriously think about trying to cosplay Balmung. I'm having some trouble finding good artwork to base my aromr on though. Any pics would be helpfull, as well as any info on how to get a pair of wings that large for cheap (If someone has a pair that they aren't using I'll trade you my entire Situation A Alucard cosplay for them complete with glasses, guns, gloves, and a giant light-up doggy head) I especially need pics of him from the back. And if anyone has seen him cosplayed before I'd really like to see the costume! Thanks in advance to everyone for your help!

Try google. Or watch .hack//Udeden, I know you have back shots of him there. You also have some in the first cut scene in .hack//Infection.

Yeah, .hack cosplayers rule!!!

I might cosplay as Gardenia ( http://www.rpgamer.com/games/hack/hack/art/gardenia_01.jpg ) or Aura ( http://www.rpgamer.com/games/hack/hack/art/hack004.jpg )

RPG Gamer doesn't like direct links. ^^; Go through this page - http://www.rpgamer.com/games/hack/hack/hack.html , that should work (you can see the little media menu links on the right there). Yeah and there are lots of good views of him in Udeden, I'd recommend getting your hands on that. If you *really* need a pic, ask me nicely and I'll cap a few.

Glad that more people are thinking about .hack cosplay, I want to get lots of pics with my Shuugo. ^^

speaking of which... the most powerful weapon in Ragnarok Online is called "Balmung" and only the admin can use it. Does anyone think there is a link here? Or amy I slow to realize that Balmung is a common word in MMORPGs...

Nerve-chan - I'll probably be bringing it to AX. Dunno after that, if I'm at Otakon, probably there too.

Ahh I didn't notice that the game and anime versions were different, though that makes sense. I haven't had a chance to play the games yet (all my free time = sewing) . . . sorry to hear you've lost your motivation on that, Rosiel. Though I understand completely! *is kicking herself over making commitments to insane costumes*

Hey XLain the Balmung was a sword created by Odin in Norse Mythology. It was supposed to be the most powerful sword ever forged, but when it's user died the sword was broken and Odin reclaimed its remenants. Since ROE is bases on the Norse Myth about the Apocolaypse it makes sense that the Balmung is in it. PS I hope to see lots of other .Hack cosplayers at Otakon so I'm Glad there's interest! I'm still lookin' for those wings ;_;
Rosiel, may I ask if you could send me the pattern you used for the skirt? Thanx everybody

thanks for the explanation Balmung, was making me wonder... it all kind of reminds me of the Beowulf story, which was cool.

I'm going out of town so I'm not sure when I'll get the rest of the caps up but I got kinda bored and I wasn't finding any good full length images, so I pieced one together. Whee Photoshop~

yeah maybe ^^

I'm just afraid no one would recogniza maruti. .hack//sign is more popular than .hack//dusk.

My site lives, and so do the forums! Now I can finally post this!

http://www.exitrance.com/exitrance/vigilante/images/udeden%20caps/

There's an additional composite from a pan at the bottom. If you need more, please just give me a heads up on what you'd like images of in particular. I tried to get a good number of back views, and then some of the smaller details of how the armor fastens and such. Hope they're helpful!
