Sora was a blast to wear, and fun to stay in character with. I'm certainly not a big Sora fan, which is probably why I take some secret delight in seeing him like this, but I do love to support Kingdom Hearts in whatever way I can.
Thanks ever so much to my Riku for leading me around and keeping me safe while I wear this, and thanks to everyone who talked with me or took my picture. ^.^ You guys were all great.
Detailed information can be found in my Sora Tutorial thread, here:
I've also noticed a lot of people saying they wished they could see it in person, so here is a link to a video. Not quite the same, but almost as good:
Some Frequently asked questions, until then:
1. Can you see while wearing that?
Yes. ^.^ Amazingly enough, there are two small slits at the corners of the eyes that I can see through. Not well, though.
2. What are the eyes made out of?
Electroluminescent sheeting. Very expensive stuff, but you can get your hands on it at a few places online.
3. How long did it take you to make the costume?
Working on and off for six months and constantly for two months. ^.^
4. What did you make the shoes out of?
Made them out of clown shoes, foam, and a pair of Converses.
5. Where did you get the zippers?
