Can anyone help me with this cosplay? I've been looking at wigs and can't decide what to get there was one on cosworx but they didn't have the right color. Also for his sword anyone got tips on making that.
Thanks in advance

Blazblue Cosplay Thread. (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=173789) Do a search, there's been plenty of Ragna discussion in here.

There are many ways to make the sword...
We've experimented with wood, fiberglass, PVC pipe (for the red parts) and foam. It all depends on how heavy you want the finished product to be. Remember - his sword is ridiculously huge. At the moment we have our "default" sword made of a combination of wood and fiberglass, but we're making another one for a skit which is entirely insulation foam (MUCH lighter) painted over with latex house paints.
Here's how the wood / fiberglass one came out. (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2452531/)
I'm working on a tutorial on how we made it, but it weighs about 15 lbs.

That looks really well done good job. I was going to use polystyrene maybe for the whole thing with a pvc pipe in the middle. Size isnt a problem since the actual sword is like 5 feet or higher. I'm 6 foot 1 so weight and size are no problem. I would appreciate that tutorial when it's ready :D

We made our sword 5'4".
Making the tutorial IS going to take awhile. :( I don't have much time due to work and cosplay eating most of it. *^^* But as soon as I can get it done I will link you to it.

When it comes to the sword, I helped a friend make it out of foam board, with the barrel-things out of a toilet paper tube cut in half. Also, make sure that if you do make it out of foam, that you have whatever use for the handle is well secured to the foam without any cracks or snaps, as my friends nearly snapped off in chess once.

As for the wig, she used a white Punky wig.
It worked very well, but was a shade too light.
So either White or Silver, punky-style.
