Well, I've been trying to decide on a .Hack// character to cosplay, and I finally chose Balmung. So I decided that I wanted to do his outfit from the "Login 10 The Players Are Thinking" chapter. So I was wondering just how to go about this project. :P

I was thinking of using either black cotton cloth or pleather (since it looks kind of shiny), but any suggestions would be great! :D And I don't know if I should use real (or fake) white feathers for the necklaces, or just sculpy. C: Any help would be great. :D <3

Specifically: What to make the boa from? / What to make the pants and shirt from? / What to use for the necklaces? / Anything else important you can think of about the costume?

Thank you in advance! :D <33 (PS: The clothes are black, not white, on the outfit ~)

EDIT: Also, I couldn't find any ref. pictures showing what sort of shoes he wears with this outfit (since it only appears on one page), so any suggestions? Combat boots, mabye? :P
PLEASE PM ME WITH SUGGESTIONS AS WELL AS USING THIS THREAD! THANK YOU!

Hi!

I am also doing the same outfit. What I'm going to do is use a pair of Pleather pants which were leftover from something else, a plain cotton/nylon trutleneck for, found costume jewlery for the rings and bracelets, Feather boa from the halloween store, knee high black boots with fluffy trim, and I am adding a pair of small featehred wings to the back of the shirt.
Once I get it all together I will take pictures and show you. ^-^
