Klonoa Cosplay

I've been a huge fan of the series since I was 8 and with the announcement of the Klonoa Door To Phantomile remake coming out for the Wii I decided to attempt a costume of his revamped design for NYC Comicon 09'.

I'm not going to bother with fur or even a mask or anything complicated of that sort, but I have run into two snags I could really use advice on.

1) Ears

The most iconic part of the character hence the most important.

I've considered 2 layers of some type of fabric (felt, fleece, maybe?) with some Polyester stuffing in between them to give them a bit more bulk. The middle is placed on ones head and secured by the hat.

I don't know which type of fabric would work best and I've never really attempted anything this complex before. I could really use some advice with this one.

2) Wind Ring

I could probably carve a relatively accurate one out of wood and find decent golden paint but does anyone know where I could find something to use as a transparent green jewel like that?



More Reference Pictures

(Not all the same version I'm planning, but the ears and ring are consistent throughout all of the versions)

I'm happy to impart whatever I can to help ya out as I go with mine; I'm building a mascot head costume for Klonoa 2/GBA/Volleyball style. I'm looking for ideas for the ring/ears as well, I haven't even really thought of what to cover the head in. My friend however is working on a Klonoa hat that can be worn with or without ears. They're made of felt and stuffed, we're working on how poofy we want to make it. We drew up a pattern in Photoshop and printed it. It sounds like that's what you're aiming for, but with the rest of the costume.

If you want, I believe my friend offered his pattern, if you'd like to take a look at it/use it. It needs really big paper though >:

I actually started a Klonoa costume years ago. I never finished it though.. The ears I made, unfortunately, are very heavy, so definitely don't use normal stuffing to make them puffy. XD That's all I can say.

I'd love to make a Klonoa Mascot, Lolo, or Ghadius someday.. Ghadius seems pretty simple, minus the mask.

Never thought about Ghadius, but I'm considering doing a Lolo costume or mascot of free size so I can have a partner wherever I go. Here's my first night's progress, it's my first mascot so it's not very neatly made yet. Last pic is the ears my friend is making. I'll get his pattern when I can.

Eee, looks cool so far!

Ghadius would be neat, but I'd definitely want to get stilts or large boots to make myself taller, since he's pretty long.

You'll need GIMP to open the one file that's actually useful. I just pulled these off my friend's computer. Still brainstorming ideas for the ring

Old old progress, but just uploaded it. Haven't worked on it for about 2 weeks now.

I myself have wanted to make a Klonoa cosplay for a while now, but I haven't really got a starting point, apart from the black limbs. I have no mascot head construction experience or any at all to be frank, but I really want to try this.

AmazingKenchan, your progress is really very impressive. I can imagine that to be a fine cosplay.

Klonoa Cosplay

I made a Klonoa cosplay with my friend Jen. It was quite fun.

I wore this at ACEN 2008 and I'll be wearing it at ACEN 2009 too if you all want to see it.


Here are some pictures of the finished project.

Foam head form and fleece covering. Fleece ear, arm, leg and neck covers.
Fake snow filling the ears. Panty hose on the inside of the mask to cover the eye.
The hat was a cut up poster board. Eyes were felt. Ring was basket handles spraypainted and the gem was made from a candle.

message me on AIM if you want any tips or more pics. Linusthewise is my screen name.

Whoah, theres a Klonoa thread?

I actually started my own Klonoa cosplay a few days ago. I am basing the overall design on the Wii remake, since I am in love with the eyes.

Progress? I has it.
