Roxas

Kingdom Hearts II

Last Updated: 10-06-2011


Okay! Here we go...

The inner jacket:
Made from a black t-shirt. I cut the sleeves off, cut the bottom off to make it a bit shorter, and then used some of the fabric from the bottom for the collar. I used felt to make the grey on the collar and the bottom hem.

The outer jacket:
From a white t-shirt, using the same method as the black jacket except the sleeves were kept on. The sleeves from the black t-shirt were sewn to the white jacket sleeves. I used red felt for the inside. I painted black checkers onto white bias tape for the checkerboards going across the front, over the shoulders, and around the back of the jacket.

The pants:
Black Dickies shorts, I was originally going to use them for Schrodinger but I decided to get a different pair for him... I got a pair of baggy beige-colored Dockers and cut the legs to the shape of that part of Roxas' pants, then used wide beige bias tape for the hem around the tops. The beige pant legs are held onto the black shorts with 3 snaps on each pant leg.

The shoes:
I found a cheap pair of black sneakers at Payless. :3 Around the bottom is painted gray, and it originally had white stitching all over it. The stitching was colored black except for the area around the laces, which was painted white. The red is white bias tape painted red- I know I could have just bought red bias tape but I used what I had available at the time... The small red squares were hot-glued on. The straps were attached by copper wire, the diagonal strap was attached to the bottom strap on the wire, then the top of that diagonal strap was hot-glued to the tongue. The bumps along the sides are Model Magic, painted gray and hot-glued on.

The FIRST wig:
I bought a wig from Cosplayanimewigs.com. It's a golden-brown color because I didn't want to use a blond wig..It didn't seem that accurate to me... I've played the games on the DS and in those his hair looks closer to this color than to blond to me...
I cut alot of hair off of this wig...
Each spike was cut individually one at a time, styled with spiking glue, then each spike was sprayed with Got2BeGlued FreezeBlast spray then dried with a hair dryer set to the lowest setting. This wig was the first one I ever had to spike like this...

It's been restyled 2 times so far.. Updated photos will (hopefully) be taken soon...

The SECOND wig:
I recently bought a new wig for Roxas.. The first one was a bit too thin for all the spiking. I got the Punky from Cosplay.com Shopping. That wig iss perfect O_O I wish I had gotten it earlier. Once again, a LOT of hair was cut off. I was actually able to style every single spike that Roxas has... And more accurate bangs & spikes.

And finally,

Keyblades:


The Kingdom Key:
All cardboard. Well, mostly cardboard. A skinny cardboard tube, hot-glued to a styrofoam handle, with cardboard for the key end and for the handle parts. It's painted with acrylic paint. The Mickey keychain is made from Model Magic and painted gray. The rounded edges around the handle are also from Model Magic.
*The keyblade was repainted silver and gold, the Mickey Mouse is now silver as well.

**I now have Oblivion & Oathkeeper :3

I also have a custom keyblade, based off of a design by an artist on dA: http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=nobody+keyblade#/dxrmti

All 3 keyblades were bought on eBay.
