liivingdeadgirl...

casting the red and blue pieces is indeed awesome to get the most jewelry look indeed.My first model is 4 inch long also.
here is my coat so far , the belt is not done yet.


http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2964052/

it looks blue because of the lighting

Anyway , one of the tie arrived and its not good, it has purple tint on the white and marroon next to the white.

But look what I found, it looks perfect.

Hoping it will make it before AX but I the wback and white to work on.

Oh wow! The coat looks great!!

And since we're entering a masq with ours we're making everything, including the ties. Ugh. I HATE making ties. >_<

But I like the one from ebay, it looks pretty good!

Psst ... I never make pants because I rather spend my time working on coats/uniform jackets. Plus in competition if the design is plan as heck for the pants no one cares what it's made of or if you bought it.
http://www.cosplay.com/costume/226359/ tow completely different fabric types but the colour so close (pants as tad lighter) it photographs the same.



I really love that coat pattern. ^_^


Well Dylon didn't do the trick with the submerged bath, I got maybe 10% darker blue on my Rin wig >_<. I have a another puck I'm going to try out of ebony with the straight from the burner method listed in the Rit dye topic in the first page.

If that doesn't work I'm going with FW ink in a concentrated bath.


Why could I not find that tie sooner ... still it really is perfect.

I've always used ink if I'm just trying to make it a scosh darker.

And I used that coat pattern too. Only I took out the princess seams so it won't look as womanly...I already have hips, a small waist, and big boobs (though I can bind pretty well) so anything to make it look more manry is a plus for me. lol

This is one of the few men's patterns out there I like using but it takes a bit of finagling to make it work with buttons.

For his moles use a water proof liquid liner ^_^ I've seen glasses like his at the dollar store and ebay.

SO Canada Post is on strike I am so insanely grateful I got my wig!
Now I must make a sword bag because mine is stuck in Vancouver.
Maybe I can get a pretty fabric for it close to the cover art. I also have my base sword ready for detail but it's rather long so this might be a good thing in the long run.

For those that don't want to make on here you go.

Off to make a tie as well.
I'll have to wait to finish Kurikara later and the flames.

I'm also using eyeliner for hit moles, and I'm going to buy a pair of cheap non-prescription glasses with a thick band and use a soldering tool which melts plastic to make the little slit in the side.

Because I need to make the bag this weekend does anyone have a image for the strapping on the front side with the bell buckles?

Back side simple enough
http://aonoexorcist.wikia.com/wiki/F...gi_-_Dabou.jpg
http://aonoexorcist.wikia.com/wiki/F..._Gara_Gara.jpg

So far the only front side I've seen.

Thanks guys ...the collar was a pain.

Great idea on the waterproof liner for the mole.All I need to add 2 since i already have 1 mole .

I also have that other pattern but since i havent made One with that type of collar, i went ahead and got this one and it was on sale at JoAnn for 2 dollars,I bought 9 other patterns...

LiivingDeadGirl, what con are you going?

One last question too about Yukio. What color do you think his hair is? I'm seeing alot of wigs pop on ebay that are totally not black. I always assumed it was black. I've seen alot that are brown or even purple for Yukio. I know some people tag wigs whatever they think may get them to sell it, but has anyone found a good Yukio wig?

tsukeru, It's mostly up to your personal preference between black and brown. The anime does it pretty normal brown and the manga colours vary by picture XD It tends to be black with brown hints, so I personally would go for a nice dark brown. liivingdeadgirl had a picture of the wig she ordered, that I thought was a really amazing Yukio wig pictured here.

well in my case im not buying any more wigs because i have too many short male hair already, ill just use some brown colorant just to add some brown shades.

Or you can get one like this.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Mens-Short-Brown...em1e6453 0728

liivingdeadgirl....I started mine only couple weeks ago , only working on it on the weekend and I am no seamtress either... my progress is slow but everything should be ready in 2 weeks on my side. Im on the West Coast.
You will make it for Otakon..

Oh yeah I got my 2 rubber training guns thats close to the design ,its got a shorter muzzle than my Colt 45 airsoft gun but they will do for now to pass the strict weapons policy .When I have more time, I ll work on a better piece.So I am planning on painting them a little with Tesors paint.
