Kingdom Hearts II
Last Updated: 07-21-2010
Why I cosplayed it: A long journey led to this costume. It all started when my friend Vickie wanted to put together a group cosplay for Kingdom Hearts. I was going to be Roxas since that was the only character I knew besides Namine and someone else wanted to be Namine. I was happy with either, so Roxas it was. For a while. Then I started learning about the characters, and eventually events... occurred and Vickie asked me if I wanted to switch characters with someone. I agreed, since I'm more like Demyx anyway, and he's really fun to play. (And that's the short version of the story, lol.)
How costume was made: I borrowed the coat from a friend at school who had played Demyx before (and ironically, was the girl I switched characters with) and I was going to use that cloak for Roxas originally.
The wig was done very last minute, about a week before the con. My brother sprayed it while I held it in place to the wig head. I forgot about sharpie dyeing, so it's bright blonde. It used to be my brother's old Cloud wig, but it was too poofy for his taste. Thank goodness, because the only other Demyx wig I found was a 40 minute drive from where I live.
The boots and gloves and underclothes I had already.
The bubbles my friend gave me at the con. THey're Disney Princess. XD
The crystal ball is my brother's. It's this thing that plays soothing sounds and projects lights onto the ceiling, I just took it off it's base. It's really heavy. (Jareth prop FTW)
I couldn't make the sitar in time, but I plan to if I can use someone else's cloak again or make my own. I wasn't planning on liking this cosplay so much. His casual weapon is a tennis racket, so I used that.
Fun times: The whole thing. (Except for one part.) I had a lot of fun at Mechacon and I can't wait for next year! This costume was worn on Saturday. Misa was worn on Friday (Formal Misty for the ball) and Ritsuka was worn on Sunday.
