My first handmade outfit.
Making the collar stand up was probably the most difficult task, but well worth it. (The fabric I used was not stiff fabric, as that wouldn't have been form fitting unless I made a terrible looking cut.)
Boots? They were originally bought off of another cosplayer to get a general idea of how to make them more accurate. I decided on using them, but had to take in the calf area as it was loose. I added padding in them to make them more comfortable. Made a boot cover affect to copy the shin guard look to them like shown in the anime/manga.
Green kunai holster was made out of plaster of paris, and was attached to the big medic pouch.
The headband wasn't the same color as the fabric of my top, which was a big peeve of mine, so I used some left over fabric to cover my favorite headband to make it match.
The base wig that I used was purchased off of cosworx. I had to straighten it, add some tracks for more volume, then cut and style it.
I had purchased some arm length leather gloves off of ebay and just rolled them up quite a bit, then I had my sister sew them by hand, as I wore them to get the perfect fit.
Not much else to say, I think?
Haven't tried to yet. I might, but I need to stop being so shy. ^^;
