Shana - Yay Silicia! Yeah I'd say just look up cute poses or watch the one episode when it's just her and Kirito and see how she stand and holds her self. That might help. Good luck!!


So Joann's is stupid and the poplin I wanted for Asuna's kobold fighting outfit was apparently out of stock and they refunded me the money. So I went and found this beautiful sateen I have her vest drafted (it's a really odd shape) and still waiting on my zipper and white interlock. This is why I hate ordering online. But hopefully I'll have this costume done by the end of next week! The wig I could get between the 15 and the first of Feb. But I'm really excited!

Going with the lovely Sakuraxtsubasa to a con sometime in the next year or so as matching ALO Kirito and Asuna! <3 Ahhhh so excited.

Anybody have any idea about how to approach the wings, though? (I made a forum post with ideas here, but I'd love to see what you all think!)

Stars, damn, I think I have to do this again....>.> you will be member number 3 that I will have helped with this haha
Unfortunatly..I don't have the messages I sent to copy/paste....So here goes..

You can use acrylic sheets for the entire wing design..
for Asuna, use one or 2 layers of the same (but transparent) color as her wings..for Kirito, use 1 layer black transparent sandwiched between 2 normal transparent sheets. This will be for each wing section. Then make the harness, then just use clear bra straps to hold the harness on..

You can also make the harness out of the clear sheets and bolt the wings on..It's a prety lengthy tutorial..If you want it, feel free to PM me, but it takes me about 10-20 min to type out..

Oh, and, what happened to the anime? Anyone know anything about when ep. 26 is coming out?

Acrylic sheets, huh? Thanks, I'll have to look into those! I might ask for the tutorial in the future, when we finally get to it. Really appreciate it!

As for episode 26, I don't think there's going to be one, at least not for a while. The episode list page has no entry for any episodes after 25, no release date, nothing. SAO did just end two weeks ago, so I'm sure we'll get an announcement sometime soon about the future of the show!

For the wings I was more-so planning on using a thin, slightly transparent fabric stretched over a wire base because I would want my wings to feel lighter and airier than a hard sheet. Plus it would be lighter with that I'm sure, allowing the supports to be smaller, giving more of the allusion of them floating like they do in the show.

I really want to start on my Asuna cosplay but my schedule. D: My friend and I may twin that outfit since we both love it. This will be her first time cosplaying so it would be easy for me to help her out if it's an outfit I'm already making for myself.

Falclon-- Organza over wire, right? I've seen that technique done before, but I don't think it quite gets the 'glassy' effect that the wings appear to have. With some glitter or some sort of added shine, they'd work wonderfully-- I just want to challenge myself a little more and see if I can get it to work with something else, you know?

I'm also just terrified of bending the wire completely out of shape, as stuff like that has happened to me before.

That's exactly why I mentioned the acrylic..You get that glassy look from it. And it's transparent, yet strong so it won't rip or get messed up. The wire idea would be fine if you can get the look right, but wire can bend when you least expect it (like hitting a wall or doorway on accident). The acrylic way, it won't bend on ya lol Also, whatever you use on the wing itself (that organza stuff) might rip (I don't know what that stuff is so I'm not sure if it WILL rip or not lol) then you have to redo them and that's a pain..

I'm doing Asuna's blue outfit from the very end of the show and I don't really want a glassy look. Like I said before I want them to look lighter and softer which is why I don't want to use thick plastic. Plus the wings always looked matte to me. Example (even though those wings are photoshopped in)

I wasn't thinking so much organza as a stretch fabric because I don't want the effect the organza would give, especially since organza is shiny and usually doesn't lay very flat. Though tearing organza isn't a very easy task (at least the organza I use).

Both my friends and I never saw Asuna's wings as glassy and I don't think hard wings would go well for either of her ALO outfits. They never gave the wings a reflection or shine to them as far as I saw in the show, so maybe that's why I feel that way. Maybe a matte acrylic, but I wouldn't use anything shiny for my cosplay and I feel like it might still be too overbearing. To each their own I suppose.

I could see them being matte, now that you mention it-- I think it's just the sparkles I've seen on them in a couple screenshots that makes me lean towards plastic, given the shine.

Exactly! I'm sure it'll be lovely either way. <3

So since I'm planning on making Asuna's first outfit we see her wear, I was wondering if I should make her cape as well. Thoughts?
