Sculpey could work for the bottom part, as the gem you can cast one using resin. This tutorial should work:

or if your curious like me, I made one out of hot glue. I just used a plastic paint tray I had and fill it with hot glue.

I can try translating what I can, but I'm not very good with japanese (particularly kanji) so I'm not going to be able to get all of them right this second -n-
If I skip over anything, I will attempt it, but it'll take me longer to check, so I'll edit it in later.
Well, here goes:

1) 型取り用シリコーン : Silicon (mould-making)
2) Good god that's a lot of kanji - I'll edit this once I've tried to make sense of it... it might take a while
3) G10z ボンド :G10z bond (It seems to be something similar to carpenter's glue? either way, it's some kind of quick-drying adhesive, from what I can find via. google)
4) again, kanji everywhere - I'll edit as soon as I've figured it out
5) <??>エポキシ : <??>Epoxy (again, I'll edit later with what that kanji is - its hard to make out)
6) More stuff to be edited (though it appears to be something to colour the epoxy with)
7) カッターナイフ : Cutter Knife
8) again, to be edited...
9) エポキシ : Epoxy (different from 5)
10) ホック: Hook (hook & eye clasps - for fastening)
11) カッティングシート: Cutting Sheet
12) カッティングボード: Cutting Board
13) 5ミリ厚のライオンボード: 5mm thick Lion Board (Information on "Lion Board" here, in Japanese but the video etc. should give you an idea of what it is. To me, it seems similar to fun foam. also, an archived thread (from here) on Lion Board)
14) エナメル: Enamel
15) キャリー: Carry (lit. translation - seems to just be something to "line" tha back with?)

Hopefully that helps at least somewhat. I've already said, but I'll get to figuring out what I didn't translate says (or at least attempt to) the size is really small and I'm struggling to make it all out right now, so it might take a little while, bit I will attempt it.

I finished the coat and undershirt thing for Duke Pantarei from Tales of Vesperia. All the armor pieces, including the collar armor that will go on the coat, is done. I just need to paint them. Here is a photo of it from my phone.

Thanks alot. I think I needed to make the collar come down a little further, though - oops. Going to work on the armor pieces this evening.

I'm so excited and nervous to be doing such a revealing cosplay for the first time and a girl at that. xDD

Hi. I was working on my Stahn armor yesterday and I think what it really needed was resizing. I made it a little smaller. When I put it on, I was comfortable. I'll need to take some pictures after I put the cape on. It's due for a photoshoot.

I would like advise on a Yuri Lowell (ToV) wig, I have seen all kinds of wigs and it's quite frankly a bit overwhelming.

I am quite willing to invest in a quality wig so I can explore yuri's other costumes at a later date.

p.s. First post, finally stopped lurking and finally started to ask some questions

Hiii! Also been a lurker since middle of 2010... I figured I might as well embrace the Tales community if 90% of my cosplays will be Tales until 2013. :I

alexphoenixwing: Do you prefer black or dark purple for Yuri? Namco and their inconsistent colors... *shakes fist at*

Also, I am currently working on Flynn from Vesperia, and his shoulder armor majigs are giving me a head ache. I came up with carving the shape out of insulation foam, and then covering it with air dry clay. But I was wondering if anyone had a better idea than this. I'd also like it to be lightweight... Thanks for reaching the bottom of my post.

Foamies are good in making armor, you'll have to use either wood glue or paper mache it to make it stronger once you make the shape. But since you made yours out of insulation foam, then I suggest using paper clay or bondo. Im not experience with bondo so ask around who knows this stuff. I think it eats the foam if place directly to the foam, so seal it with wood glue or water down glue.

I seen most cosplayers use black hair but its your choice which color you like. as for wigs choice or styles that may fit him:

http://matchwigs.com/147-merklin-med...g-cosplay.html
you'll have to style the front to get his bangs right.

Not sure if this could work,

http://thefivewits.net/2011/07/timel...n-jet-classic/

and if not, check ebay for wigs.

Personally, for Yuri's wig, this is the one I've been planning on getting: http://www.fm-anime.com/sailormoon-h...wig-p-376.html Yes. I know it's technically for Sailor Mars, but the color is perfect for Yuri and I've never had a problem with fm-anime.
