Aeris Gainsborough......

I was just wondering if ANYONE could give me some tips on how to make Aeris' sleeve cuffs, and her gold bangles on her wrists.... A couple of ideas crossed my mind, but I'm not exactly sure if they'd work out okay or not..... I'd greatly appreciate anybody's ideas... thanks. ^_^

Okay. I have one idea that might work for sleeve cuffs (it's what I did!)

You buy one of those belts with the studded holes....

Cut it into two strips, about 11" long each.

Buy some bradleys (you know, those brass pin things you used in elementary school). Use a hot-glue-gun to glue a bradley into each hole. Make sure they fit!

Let the bradleys dry.

Fashion each strip into a ring. Glue the ends together with industrial strength craft adhesive, and tie a string around the ring to hold it for 24 hours.

The next day, cut four thin (about 1 cm wide) strips out of craft foam. Make sure they're long enough to fit around the ring. These will be those "ridges" on the top and bottom of the sleeve ring.

Glue them on with some hot glue, or that craft adhesive.

After you let it dry, spraypaint the whole thing with primer, and then some silver spraypaint.

Here are how mine turned out:

I'm still not sure myself about wrist cuffs. My father made mine, and he has special wood-working equipment that he made them with.... If I ever find another way, I'll be happy to post it! Hope this helps a little!

Ohhhh! Yeah, that's a REALLY good idea. o_o I'm for sure going to try that! And yours came out looking really, really nice. Hopefully mine will come out like that. XD

Thank you. ^__^ *Glomp!*


Hmm... now.. *Thinks about what she can do about the bangles.* @_@

Well....what I do, is hold my hair up, spray it like mad with Aeris-all (haha *snort.*) .....with some aeresol hairspray, like Aquanet, and blowdry it to where I want it, and mold it with my hands a bit. Then I take my curling iron, and pinch the tops of my hair where I want my points. ^^ Hope that helps.

I think the pointy hair look a lot of FF7 cosplayers do is irritating... it looks tacky. especially for Aerith and Sephiroth, just large waves will suffice! actually making your hair stick out and then bending it at a severe angle is just... not attractive.

about the cuffs.. I have no idea, sorry. ^^;

It may look "tacky" to some people, but it's accurate IMHO. People will do what they like and if someone doesn't like it, they don't have to look at it OR do it with their Aerith costume. People will do what they please, and I DO say, DO WHAT YOU PLEASE people. If everyone did their hair the SAME there would be little diversity. I like seeing all the different ways people do something, whether it be hair styles, armor, or a simple fold in something. It's almost unique....it gives a special quality to THAT person's costume.

it looks tacky straight up, pointed and then straight down, yes.

more and more aeris cosplayers now are making it swoosh up, curve and swoosh down into curled tendrils which imho looks accurate AND very pretty. ( Aeris and Sizer do it best tht ive seen. ) *0* you guys are the best aeris'. *_____*

That's how my Aerith costume turned out. @@ The weapon and Armor are wood. XD;;; I wish mine would have turned out a little better though. And......and......dang my hair. XD I had to rubberband it because I got sticky using.... that ICE crap. -___-;
