Started my Kirito Spriggan cosplay (the actual costume part, since I'm almost done with the sword lol). Got the base of the coat done. Not enough bias tape for the white parts yet, but I will tomorrow lol
I also don't have enough fabric for the damn buttcape thingy....Oh well I will soon..

So last night I finished season 1 (up to episode 13ish) and I LOVED it!!!! The story line between Kirito and Asuna was amazing!!!

I'm hoping to pull together an Asuna cosplay and hopefully get my boyfriend to be Kirito! (SAO versions) I also wanna get my little sister to be Yui. (:

Well fuck..I screwed up on the sword big time..So now I gotta start all over....
The Spackle (the pink stuff I used to fill the gap to make it smoother where the dowel is, didn't do shit, and the glue just up and wore off..Now one side of the entire dowel isn't even friggin glued anymore and I have NO way of getting into it to reglue it without destroying the sword....I'm pissed..I just said fuck it and I'm gonna save up to make it out of wood. I don't have any choice now..

So even though the leather strap sheath/holder Kirito has for ALO seems like it would make drawing the sword off the back somewhat plausible (just finished watching a youtube video that shows drawing off the back from a full length sheath is impractical), the sword length still looks too long to draw it from the leather strap holder.

Anyway, I'm planning to do an ALO Kirito cosplay for DragonCon '13, and I'm wondering if anyone had some input re: how to do a workable back sheath/holder. Sure I'd like to do photos with the sword drawn but I don't particularly want to have to carry the sword in hand all day/evening heh.

Soulflare, the only way to make it so you can take the sword out, is to make it smaller. But then it'll look off..like very off..it is 100% impossible to get that sword in and out by yourself. You will either hand to hold it all day, keep it on your back all day, or have someone help you. I've already tried to find a way and It's just to big. In fact, any sword on your back well be very very difficult to get in and out. Like link, and trunks, they both have them on their backs, but those sword will take a very long reach to get out, imagine one that's about as tall as you....

I want to do that version too! (After I lose the weight too :P) I was thinking for the fairy wings with just a simple wire shape and then maybe use tulle to cover it.

I was wanting to do Asuna's Queen Titania outfit but then I saw that blue outfit she had on at the end. I wish I could find a full drawing of it because I love it *-*

To make you feel better it is infact possible. If you notice the straps are close to where his neck is thus making it onlt possible for an anime draw of the sword however by placing the straps closer to the middle of your back it would mean less of the sword its self would need to be pulled out the is option one.

option two would be to just make clip straps the unbuckle your choice though good luck on it!!!

Hey guys so I think I'm gonna try to bust out Asuna for Sakuracon. And I need some help picking the perfect wig! XD

I would normally go with an Arda wig, but I don't really like the orangy-blonde colors they have.
Here are a few refs [1] [2]
Here are some cosplayer's who wigs I like [1] [2] [3 - I love her ponytail] [4]
and Here are some wigs I've been looking at [1] [2] [3] [4 - In Classic Orange] [5]

Opinions?

Ohh, yeah it never occurred to me to just move the straps lower/closer to center to give it more clearance. Thanks Talismand, I'll give that a shot once I have the sword form started.

This week's project is to get the sword pattern drawn up in Illustrator, though I do plan to hit LA's fashion/fabric district too so I'll be keeping an eye out for suitable leathers and fabric for the coat as well.

Wig #1 seems to be the best choice, though if you wanted to adjust the styling a little to your own tastes then #4 might be a better option (I think butterscotch blonde looks like a better color match than classic orange)

That still isn't gonna work..Try this:
get a lot of paper (or one HUGE piece) draw the entire sword on it and make the handle as well. Then, cut it out so it's the exact size you are going to make it (this can also be used as the stencil when you make it lol). Now put it on your back, and try a movent exactly like you would with the prop to take it out. you will see the blades tip will never reach your back, meaning it will be 100% inpossible to both put it on your back AND take it off. I already tried this..
