WIP Ashitaka

So this is the first costume I have ever fully made from scratch. All my others have been purchased and modified to fit me and work for that I need. But this one started as piles of fabric and thread. So please give me some input on how I am doing and yes I know parts are missing.

Missing Stuff:
Leg Warmers
Hand Guard/Sleeve extension on the long sleeves
Riding pants
Shoes

Thanks!

First you might want to add a reference image to your post. (:

Second, I love Miyazaki's work and this is a great cosplay of it!!! Your half sleeves and jacket/kimono top look great. My only thing is that the belt on the jacket should be a bit darker. I love the colors you chose for everything else though! Very nice work! Also on the wig/your hair try to see if you can get it to lay a bit flatter. It seems to have a bit too much volume and flip for Ashitaka's hair. (:

Nice work! I can't wait to see the finished product!

Opps that was a derp on my part. I totally spaced on the ref images. Added. ^-^

I used the same blue from the half shirt part for the belt mostly because to me it looks like the same blue. In the images I've been using during this project.


Thanks though for the input.

I just want to say, because of this, I want to watch Princess Mononoke now.
I really love the color of the top. It fits perfectly with the actual color from the movie.

I would just fix the hair and it's good. I can't wait to see the final.

Thank you Noize for the input. Yeah the hair could use some help, but that was just pulled out of the bag no brushing done at all. lol
I am planning on having the hood/cowl part so the hair will be mostly hidden unless I take it off.

My straw/hay cape for Ashitaka is done. Though I am debating adding some more layers to it to fill it more. It's already pretty heavy though....what do y'all think?

Sorry I haven't updated recently I was planning my wedding. Now that the wedding is over I can resume making Ashitaka.
I am a little stuck on how to make the legwarmers, riding pants and shoes. Does anyone have any advice on making those?
