Roxas Cosplay

http://members.cosplay.com/costume/118354/

I was determined to NOT be one of THOSE Roxas' (similar situation to my Naruto cosplay), so I wanted to look as much like him as possible. It was harder to stay in character tho XD I wanted to smile like Sora *tantrums*

What do you think?

That has got to be, hands down, the most amazing Roxas hair I've ever seen. Just WOW. I'm swooning here.

Of course, the rest of the costume looks great too, very accurate and well-made. You even did the rings! Wonderful work.

Two small suggestions would be to make the zipper-pull bigger, and to make the shoes "poofier" if possible.

Honestly though, those two little things are completely inconsequential when held up against the utter wonder that is the hair!! *is mesmerized*

Wow!!! You look fantastic! XD
I am very very impressed, I just wish the images were larger.(curses cosplay.com's resizing of images!) I'd just love to see the up-close details. <3
Oh, and that hair....I want to touch it because it looks so great, but I'm afraid I'd end up with a stab wound!

As far as accuracy, this costume is by far one of the most accurate I've ever seen. My only points that I will raise are not things I have issues with, ( because let's face it, this cosplay rocks! ) but rather that when comparing it to the reference image I see these things as possible future improvements.

-I agree with wingclipped, about both the shoes and zipper.

-I also noticed that your zipper's pull is on the wrong side. (unless the reference image or your cosplay images were reversed)

-It's a bit hard to tell, but did you manage the ribbing lines on the inner red part of the collar? Apologies if you did...I'm squinting at my monitor to see! lol ><

Other than than I see nothing else worth changing, it's a really great costume.

that is really amazing :3 you make a perfect roxas

the only thing that obvious catched my eye is the jacket, i think you could use some kind of fitting in along the sides ( and or back seam if there is one? ), its very flat where roxas has a fitted/flaredish one, that might help out alot with the back sticking out like that too

you also might want to try and find a way to make your jacket collar stick up a bit more, but thats really all i can see xD

really great anyway, you couldnt change a single thing and it would still be one of the best Roxas's i've ever seen

The jacket is bugging me. It's really not fitted well at all, and while the details aren't that bad, the fact that it hangs so loosly on you obscures all of those details. The collars, both of them, look too floppy as well, though the inner one I think could be solved by zipping it up a little farther.

Do you have pockets on that?

I think the spikes on the wig, and don't lynch me, could afford to be shortened a little bit. The general shape is right, and the spikes are well done, it just looks a little big. Sora is the one with the stupidly huge hair, Roxas actually has a slightly more subdued style.

It looks really great, especially the hair! I suggest finding an experienced photographer with a nice camera...you could get some really good shots.

(Just something that irks me...good cosplayers in bad photos!)

My only problem is that your keyblade is not at all proportioned to your body. Other than that...the costume itself looks quite nice.

Wow amazing job.
I really like the key blade, and the wig is spot on.

The costume looks almost perfect, the fabrics are all the exact color and everything.

Kudos! Possibly my favorite Roxas cosplay ever :3

Other than the shoes which could be more accurate, I think you did a wonderful job! The wig looks fabulous, and, unlike THOSE Roxas cosplayers, I can actually tell you're Roxas!

Good, good work
