Star Ocean: Till the End of Time
Last Updated: 05-07-2009
I have always loved Albel Nox. He is by far my favorite character. When my friend first introduced me to conventions (about a year ago) I always new that I wanted to one day cosplay as him. Making the costume was rather difficult. I could have added the shoulder and arm armor but I also made a cloak to go over it (from the manga) and with the arm armor it made it look too bulky.
In this picture the costume is not fully completed. I need to add the collar and the wrist guard (both of which are finished). The last thing I will get right before the con is the red contacts.
As far as I'm concerned it turned out really well even with the missing armor. If it can be improved in any way let me know.
Lets get into how I made a few things. To start off with the wig was all black and I got some blond extensions and glued them to the base of the wig cap. The rat tails that come out of the wig are made of out batting and have the extensions added in at the bottom
The shirt is just a small kids shit that was cut up and re-sewn to the right length.
I got a pattern for the gloves at Joanns and got another purple kids shirt and used that as the fabric. I must say, sewing gloves isn't fun. I don't have much experience and that was a difficult task for me x.x
The gauntlet is made out of plastic that was heated with boiling water then shaped. It is glued onto the glove. If I wear this costume again I may try making the whole gauntlet over again.
The bangle on the right wrist is a metal gold bangle that I had and painted it silver. It too is glued to the glove.
The shoulder armor was made from the padding of a G size bra XD. The back of it is the same plastic used for the gauntlet.
The shoes are converse I had that I didn't wear anymore. I painted them purple and the sole silver. In my opinion that was a bad plan. It worked for now but the shoes were hard and crusty. Again if I wear this costume again I will remake them.
There was armor on the shoes but a lot of that fell off x.x It was made out of craft foam. I tried to make it out of plastic but it didn't bend and ended up coming off much faster when I was walking.
The thigh-high stockings where ones I got at hottopic and dyed purple. I think the color in those came out great.
There is also a collar that I made for this but it is not in any of the pictures. For the collar I used insulation foam and covered it with a very light plaster and painted silver. I also got some plastic chains, painted them silver and added two and a half links to the collar.
