Axel

Kingdom Hearts II

Last Updated: 08-18-2008


Axel was the pain in my butt.

The coat started life as a Matrix coat pattern, and I used a heavy pleather material, adjusting the pattern to add the hood and make it uber-tight.

The bead details are made from air-dry clay, and some old necklaces that I pulled apart.

The wig was the biggest part of the project. I used two punky-style red wigs, pulled wefts from one and sewed them to the other to get that V-shaped hairline. At first I had to stick it to my forehead with spirit gum but eventually it seemed to fit without it, not really sure why but I didn't complain.

It was styled with Got2be Glued freeze spray and hair glue, and a hairdryer on cold. Worked wonders, and I highly reccomend it!

The boots were Libby Lift style from Classix.com. I'm only 5'5'', so I needed the height boost.

The chakrams were originally made from papermache and cardboard, but I'm going to remake them from foam in the future.

Axel is currently on hiatus after I got angry at him at Amecon and threw the wig in the bin O.< He will return!
