Version 2

Heavenly Sword

Last Updated: 11-28-2012

This is my second version of this costume. I recycled the wig and sword, but pretty much everything else is new. There are STILL things I am not completely happy with and want to fix, but I am much more satisfied with this version. I would like to re-make the sword again, but this one works for now.
I hand-drew all the designs on the fabric.
The hip armor is made out of craft foam and rubber tubing (for the edge).

This was my first costume with an extensive wig and prop. It was also my first costume where I had to sew everything from scratch.
My boyfriend made the first version sword. He drafted it from the concept art , so it's a little bigger than the in-game version. It's hard to find a consistant size of the sword because it seems different depending on the picture you look at. The first sword itself was made from insulation foam and bondo (Bondo is a nightmare to work with!).
Later on, I decided to attempt to make the sword split in two for my re-make. This time I made the sword by myself, and it was my first time using power tools. This time I used cheesecloth/glue covered with the bondo patching plaster rather than the actual bondo itself.
