Hurhur, yes, I said Excalibur cosplay. (as in, Excalibur from Soul Eater.) Reference pic: http://spicytunas.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/recap-9e.jpg (the little white guy~)

I'm going to be making an Excalibur cosplay for Acen and AX, and I figure I should start working on it now in case I run into any major problems.

So I'm having trouble decided on what material to make my costume out of. I was looking into wonderflex, but I don't know enough about it and I don't think it would be ideal for a crowded, sweaty con... :/ So I've been cosidering naugahyde, but one, I don't know where I'd get it, and two, I'm not sure whether it would look right.

Anyone have any ideas?

hmmm, thats a tough one, I was thinkin you could make the shirt and cape thing and then just buy white tights and white gloves. are you gonna do a mask?? The shirt is pretty straightforward and you can find patterns pretty easily. I would use cotton or a cotton/poly blend. For the cape/collar thingy I would use that wedding veil material - tulle to give it body and then use lace for the top layer. I dunno about the top hat - maybe use cardboard or high density foam for the shape and cover it with blue white material. I found a better reference pic too

I think i have an idea for the mask. you could use thin hence and shape it; the coat it in the material you find ideal, cut out holes for the eyes, and put see through cloth on. i recommend you glue the hat to the mask; to make it easier to transport and harder to lose:wave:
