First, I have to say that I didn't make the costume. I ordered this off eBay. I wouldn't recommend ordering online cause you can't tell of the quality. There were 3 parts on the costume that fell off and had to be re-sown back on, so that was really lame. The scarf was sown by my brother Chibi-Soujiro, and the hammer was made by me. It took me about 30 hours to make because this was the first big prop I've ever made. The hammer stands about 6 feet and 2 inches in height and weighs almost 20 lbs., so it is heavy! I added Lavi's 4th seal of fire and lightning combo because most people did fire and I wanted to be different. I ordered a customized wig online that cost me $60. At Anime Central 2008 I added a heart-shaped eye patch to differentiate myself from other Lavi's I've seen. I took photos with people and shouted out "Strike-oo" as Lavi would do in the anime/manga when he saw an attractive lady. I came up with the idea when I re-watched the first 50 episodes of D Gray Man and laughed so hard when Lavi would fall in love with Eliade and Lulubell. In the future I hope to add more to the costume. I want to set up a series of wires hooked to pieces of paper with the other seals available to Lavi, so I can summon many different seals. I think this would make my costume stand out more. I am looking into doing a time jump Lavi and past Lavi as well!
