I know I am reviving this thread from the dead, but I decided to re-make my Nariko...again. This time I want to use a less shiny material for the outfit and draw on the designs. Any suggestions for the material?
I probably need to buy a new wig since my old one is worn and a MESS but I'm cheap, so I decided to "dread" it instead. It looks better, but is still messy, but I highly doubt Nariko had time to keep her hair shiny and smooth!
I decided to keep my second version of the sword. I know it's a little big for the in-game version, but it's actually more accurate to some of the concept art in which it's as big as Nariko.
By the way Foxtale, I love love love your Nariko! It's amazing!

Thanks! ^_^

I actually used a combination of three different kinds of a material for mine: two layers of heavy spandex for the tube top and underwear, a heavy cotton for the sleeve and leg warmers, and a fine non-stretch poly like you'd used on a wedding veil for the wrap. Good luck!

I'm going to be taking my Kai to fanime! I have some nice contacts in mind and am going to either remake or just touch up the costume. It depends on how much money and time I have once my new costumes are finished ><!! I have friends who want to see my Kai and so I figured, "Ehh..what the heck! I'll take her~" XD

Well the sword length depends on what picture you are taking it from. In some of the artwork, it looks about Nariko's size, but in some of the in-game shots, it looks smaller. I based mine on some of the artwork, but if I re-made it, I would probably make it a little smaller so the the magnets would hold the sword together better.

Yay more Heavenly Sword love!!
Here's my version 2 of Nariko. I like the fabric much better than my first one. Now all I want to do is re-make the swords so they're a little thinner and fit better together.
