Ranma 1/2

Last Updated: 09-16-2013

Second attempt at the costume.

Wig took 8 hours styling.

Buns made with smooth styrofoam ball halves. Hair was cut short where the styrofoam was hot glued to wig netting. Styrofoam was then lightly scored and painted to match wig colour. Two layers of hair wefts were then glued on top of the buns in a vertical fashion. A long layer of wig hair was then draped over for blending the shapes into the rest of the hair. Thin pieces of wire hold the hair in place around the buns.

Wig was airbrushed to the bright blue/purple mix.

Chest plate is made from craftfoam and worbla. The final form was primed with gesso and sanded, then spray painted with primer paints. Acrylic paints used to create depth and shadows. Testor's metallic gold used on the accents. Finished off with a high gloss spray. It closes up in the back with grommets and lacing.

Sword was made from craft foam and worbla.
