Kendappa :3
The design of armor in TRC is similar to the one from RG Veda, the sword is almost the same so I had more references :P

Mehdia and benihime, thank you!

I finally have some progress pictures to share! I've almost completed the Watanuki costume for my brother's girlfriend for our group. Hope fully I will have more work on the other three to show off soon. I have some things to fix and then all that gold to sew down, but it's the most complete of all the costumes. Yuuko should be nearing completion tomorrow.

Thanks! These costumes have been some headaches, but if they turn out like I think they will, they will be awesome.

Watanuki looks lovely Mehdia! The gold detailing is fabulous.

DreaM HunteR, your Amaterasu is stunning. You got some great shots of it!

Gah, I just want to take pictures with you all! ^_^

I'm not exactly doing one (please don't yell at me!) but I had a comment, so for Marus wig.... THEY ALWAYS GET IT WRONG!!! Her hair is past the floor and they do it to her waist (usually) so yeah... I love XXXHOLiC! I started reading the manga and finished the first season.

only problem is though that it's hard to wear a wig that long because it's so heavy...most cosplayers have to compensate so it doesn't pull their wig down or hurt their head really badly. Believe me, I have a friend that cosplays her so I know.

I Understand you XD I was going to cosplay her 2 years ago, but after all my group decided not to make those costumes and when I was thinking about her I had big problem with wig for her. I found then this cosplayer: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1658740/ and I think it looks nice~ Because it's kinda impossible to have curly hair for example 170cm long...

Agreed. Every cosplayer is different. You have to consider accuracy against feeling comfortable (and also if you're willing to risk having your wig dirty and tangled on the floor). I'm a big xxxHOLIC fan too, BUT I am not willing to risk my wig being tangled. Maybe for photoshoots. ;D But that Maru cosplayer had the right idea! LOVE LOVE LOVE! It's not too short or too long. <3


Sorry for just jumping into the conversation. 8D I've been lurking in this thread once and a while and saw the comments. Just had to say my opinion on it.


btw, people's (progress) pictures so far looks great. :3 Can't wait to show my Tomoyo-Hime cosplay.... when I start it. Needs to be done by June for a con. 83 BUT I have no more school so I should be fine to make her cosplay. Haha.

In her official standard outfit, Miku also has hair longer than she is tall while up in twintails. Even fan videos rarely make her hair go past her knees. 100 cm twintail vances or whatnot is long enough for anyone to understand that "the character has LONG hair 1!!1ELEVENTYONE!1"

Just as you may have to sacrifice a little colour accuracy in the wig to translate it into real life against the clothing and your complexion, sometimes it just *looks* better to not have it identical to what is in the reference image.

Not to mention all the reasons mentioned above of inconvenience.

Omg, YES. Totally agreed! <333333 I love your cosplay of Tomoyo-hime! <333 I hope I do her some justice. 83 You should totally do it! The outfit I'm going with is a manga art of her and Kurogane together, shielding off a volley of arrows. 83 (I actually just really want her bell prop because it looks mighty cool to be carrying around! hahaha)

Got another picture of progress for my xxxholic group that will be debuting at A-kon next weekend. I'm knocking out Himwari tomorrow, but for now, I will share the jacket piece for my brother's Doumeki costume. It needs the hand stitching of the gold, a few other details, and it's ready. It fits him perfectly, and he's got the natural shape of a CLAMP guy: broad shoulders and then tapers down to a thinner waist and he's pretty tall. So perfect Doumeki. He doesn't even need a wig because he has naturally dark hair that he keeps cut short.

okay, so I'm making a Sakura costume (the same one CianFionn made) but I'm not having much luck on finding good tutorials on how to style the wig to look anything like Sakura's hair. Does anyone have some helpful tips, maybe?
