So I found out I am going to Hawaii over the winter break and I really want to take my Morgiana cosplay with me to get pictures in a tropical environment. XD I don't know how my family to take to me walking around in cosplay on vacation though.

After attending a Diwali celebration, I have come to the conclusion that Judal's design is without a shadow of a doubt based off Indian clothing. And now I want to design him an outfit that's far more interesting than the basic black-on-black-with-some-jewelry of his canon outfit.

I think this is a really good idea and would be really cool to see.
The costumes in Magi, in my mind always look better when thought is put into what kind of fabrics would be used for the person based on their economic status/whether it's a festival outfit or everyday clothes and where their country of origin is based on. So seeing someone take that idea a little further by adapting/re-designing his outfit to suit the ethnic clothing his was based on would be really neat.

I think colour of the staff is a bit too light ><

What are your opinions? It's supposed to be Aladdin's staff that he got from Baba.
We didn't make it smooth under the impression that the staff looks like it is made from wood.

I donno, it looks alright to me. Is it too bright compared to the colors of the cosplay?
Also your tiny dog is adorable.

We haven't gotten the scarf yet, but so I wouldn't know.
But I think the rest of the costume looks fine with it.

Heh, he's been trying to eat bits and pieces of the staff the whole time ;p

EDIT:
Does anyone have an idea of how to do Judal's necklace? Can't seem to think ><
I mean... its not like Pringles (using as a base for the bracelets xD) can would fit onto a person's neck... right?

A group of friends and I are working on some Magi cosplays we ~hope~ to have done by late April, but that absolutely have to be done by Anime Expo. We've got Alibaba, Aladdin, Judal, Morgiana, and Hakuryuu Ren, all in their first outfits. The only problem is that we have absolutely no idea where to start. P: Does anybody have any tutorials they could share for those cosplays? We'd like to go for a cheap option that looks good, and with the amount of time between now and the con, we're able to spend a lot of time on it.

MitsukaiEievui: Looking at a tutorial for the Pringles bangles, they mention oatmeal canisters. Maybe you could find a food canister that's about as thick as your neck, and make it like the bracelet, but large and flexible enough with a section missing from the back that you can put it on your neck?
Actual neck rings are just really long pieces of metal that women curl around their necks, so you could alternatively use a rope of sorts.

This is my necklace http://photo.cosplay.com/111872/3369772.jpg
I made it out of clear pvc tubes and poured gold paint on the inside. It worked really well for what I wanted. Here are the tubes I am talking about http://www.dynalabcorp.com/images/610855.jpg You can get them at any home improvement store like home depot or lows. In order to get them to stay together there in a small piece of gorilla tape on the inside and under the gem. There is also tape on each end and I used a piece of velcro to secure it in the back. The pony tail hides all of this.

MitsukaiEievui: When agonizing over Judal's necklace, one of the ideas I had was to coil a small tube around my neck, glue it all in place, cut the back, and fasten it together when it came time to put it on as a necklace. You know, like Nikkiolie did. I ended up getting frustrated with the coiling and went for a bunch of chains with a red gem prendant because I'm lazy.

FoxTrott: That's a big group, haha. If you're looking to cut down on sewing hours, you could probably use tai chi pants for a lot of the characters. They won't be perfectly accurate with the dropped crotch, but some people don't like that look anyway.

When helping with PiC's Morgiana, I made a basic flat bodice (supposed to be formless since she's a slave) and a circle skirt for the bottom. I razor cut the bottom of the skirt to give it a ragged look, then sprayed it with hairspray so it wouldn't fall apart. There's probably a better way to keep it from unraveling, but we had to leave in 10 minutes and that's what we had so whatever.

For sanity's sake, Judal's and Aladdin's ponytails should be removable. I haven't yet found a way to make Judal's hair look good without it getting mussed up through the day, so good luck with that and let me know what you guys go with.

@FoxTrott
Ropes somehow seems like an amazing idea xD
I'll keep that in mind.

@nikkiolie
I can't see your picture of the necklace unfortunately. It gives me an access denied ><
Are those PVC tubes flexible? Or are they like hard ones?

@Ilafatyu
I think if I ever find a bunch of chains that matches I would definitely buy them.
The con is about a month away and we still have Judal and Schehezrades props to finish xD

We have all the 4 magi costumes done except for Yunan's shoes so that wouldn't be a problem.
Props wouldn't be much of a problem either if I didn't have major exams soon ;x
Thanks for the help guys~

They sell flexible transparent tubing at Home Depot or whatever home improvement store you frequent. The tubing she's talking about was about five bucks for a pack. I think it was in with the plumbing stuff, but I'm not positive.
Edit: Something like this, Nikkiolie?

I went so cheatercheap on Judal's necklace. I picked up a bunch of mismatching chains on clearance and spray painted them with a gold metallic finish. The pendant was a paperclip glued to the back of an acrylic gem and threaded into the chain. I wish there was a picture of it from the first convention, where fewer things broke while I put it on. Probably because I went so cheap. Hm.

Finally caught up on the Magi chapters. Really happy there are clear refs for Mor's outfit now but I'm not happy with the fact that the bracelets are on my legs now. T_T I can't have mine on my legs. They won't fit.

Also, so I just got roped into cosplay Morgaiana's festival outfit. Anyone whose done it have tips? Like for the top and stuff? I'm intimidated by it so much.
