Hunter x Hunter
Last Updated: 10-05-2013
This is another one I've been wanting to do for a long time. I've already had casual clothes which are somewhat like Killua's for a while, but they're not entirely accurate, so I decided to make this outfit properly, as a cosplay.
It turned out to be kinda a mix of different versions at first though. ^^; I started on this before the new anime was announced, so the clothes and shoes were based mostly on the old version, those were already done. But then I really liked the colour scheme of the new one, so I went with the new design for the skateboard.
I used shorts which I already owned, and I bought his long sleeved shirt. For the short-sleeved shirt I took a plain white T-shirt I had lying around, dyed it and cut out the v-neck.
The skateboard is made by altering a bought skateboard. The only thing that was right about it were the orange wheels though, so I had to pull off all the stickers, sand it clean, saw a part of the back, move the back wheels a bit to the front to regain balance, and then paint it. It was really a hassle! In-progress photos can be viewed here:
I made the shoes myself too, in a similar manner as I made my shoes for Trunks. ^^ This time I used some cheaper materials though, so I hope they'll stay in one piece during the convention. >w<
When I wore this again at Abunai 2012, I wanted to make it more consistant to one version, so I re-made the clothes according to the 2011 anime's colours and design. I didn't have time to re-make the shoes, but that's something for a next time!
I also made some Chocorobokun boxes, which turned out to be very fun props to work with. =D
This is probably one costume that I'll keep updating as long there's still things to improve. xD For Nishicon I re-made the shoes according to the 2011 version as well, and re-styled the wig to make it more spiky, but I'm still not entirely satisfied with it. ^^;;
