Looking for some critique. I started my new Sora cosplay and would like some feedback.
I haven't got the cosplay finished yet (it's still in the making as I'm typing this) but this is the first cosplay I will be extremely proud of.
Here's some info on it you may need to know:
-The shirt is an actual bought shirt, I can;t make them, but I am adding the white on the collar (already added as of this message) and the front pocket.
-The pants are a little different. I used red shorts and made chaps that I am attaching to them. Those are not done yet, only cut out and pinned..Not a lot there..
-The bags are made out of the same material as the chaps, and I haven't bought anything for the strapping yet because the joanns here was out of some stuff..lol
-The coat is completely had made. Also..Not finished, but almost. I will be adding the crowns to the sleeves soon here (maybe tomorrow) as well as the crowns on the pants.
The keyblade is made oddly lol The handle is a wooden dowel that goes up about 10" into the shaft. The yellow part is all cardboard with spray foam in them then glued on. The rounded parts on the handle are just rolled cardboard lol The blue area and the raised part right above it, are clay. The shaft was weird..I found 2 pbv pipes that were exactly how long I needed the shaft to be..Then I put them together..They fit perfectly, so that worked lol But even BETTER, the dowel fit right into the inner pipe!! All I needed to do was glue it lol Then the teeth are layered cardboard glued on. The chain is metal. So i get that nice clinky sound when I move it. The mickey head is layered cardboard..
The necklace isn;t complete. I have to color the backside..Not hard.. But I painted a white plastic chain silver.
No shoes yet.
Anyway here are pics:
I can't find any others where you can see..There's only one and it's a photoshopped pic. So it's slightly in accurate but:
Coat close up (as of now, the safety pins on the hood hem are gone. It's sewn up):
Full body progress (without the bags as they can't stay on because I have no straps, I also haven't put the elastic in the hem yet. Nor have I put the white bias tape on the chaps):
Keyblade and necklace together:
Album (will be putting the finishing and better progress pix in here):
Shoes so far:
More frontal view-
The shoes are not that finished yet. The thick yellow part wrapping the shoe is now glued to the front part and no longer needs to be pinned, I still need to buy yellow bias tape (doing that tomorrow) and sew it to the raw edges of all the vinyl (the yellow areas, except for the skinnier strap).
