Two, for sure. (Friend's Kirito and my Erza.) I may also be making all the sewn parts for another friend's Gildarts cosplay if that ends up being a thing. I work full time and have random days off instead of permanent ones, which is why I usually have to limit myself to just a few costumes a year.

I'm only up to episode 8 at the moment. xD; Trying to make time to finish the series. It's good to know that I'll have more Asuna options later on.

I never bothered to take the fabric webbing out of the Wonderflex when I was molding my scraps into solid pieces. o: If you're smushing it into something solid, they sort of just disappear into the rest of it. Layering them with the "smooth" side up may also help.

I really want to try working with Worbla. o: But expensive. And I just ordered $200 worth of Wonderflex earlier this month.

How's Worbla in terms of durability? Is it still pretty flexible after being molded? Does it really sand as nicely as the website says online? o:

Earlier in the thread I think we counted somewhere around 6 costumes for her? The easiest one is probably what she wears when they're on floor 22 (i think the first epsiode is The girl in the mist or something like that)

I actually haven't had a chance to play around with it yet. It came in on wednesday and I've been out of town since tuesday. I'll be able to play with it Monday (if I don't end up sleeping all day LOL it's been a long week) so I'll let you know. The girl who did the tutorials I've been watching is always throwing her armor pieces around so it seems like it's pretty sturdy stuff. I'll do some videos myself once i have a chance to play with it some to show you guys if you want

Thanks all! Probably going to take Sunday off working on Klein. Not too much more to go, just the other armor pieces (bracers, shoulder pauldron)

I finally got the top outfit done for Asuna and arm warmers. I just need the stockings, red band thingy (that goes around her back and arms), sword, and sheathe.

I'll show pictures later.

Thanks. I'm actually really happy on how it's turning out, seeing as it's my first time making a cosplay.

As for the shoes, I used craft foam for it and looked at this tutorial to get a few pointers.

Li ~ Looks great!!

Nemi ~ That is looking fantastic! Love your chest piece!

Today is Worbla day! I'm so excited. Hopefully I'll have Asuna's little breast plate done today! But I have to fix the cutouts on the sleeves first. 2 out of the 4 diamonds ended up crooked when basted it =/ I wish I could have just done it more like an applique but stretch & interlock do not like eachother....at least my machine doesn't X.x

Well, you did a great job! And thanks for the tutorial. I'll have to try this out someday for a cosplay~ :3

Btw, just bought Lisbeth's wig. Waiting for them to ship and to come to me! Probably will take a while.

Great stuff I'm seeing in this thread. So many different versions to choose from, and so many good reference pics.

I've seen all the SAO episodes once they were aired last year, and started reading the LNs about mid January. I'm about 1/3 through the first Phantom Bullet novel (GGO), and I was strangely attracted towards the main antagonist Death Gun. His cosplay seems pretty simple with a sinister mask with two guns and a long coat, so I think it should be a pretty easy for a first time cosplay maker. Since the Phantom Bullet novel wasn't made into an Anime, there aren't many reference pictures for him:

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../Death_Gun.png
http://book.sfacg.com/UploadPic/2010081583223801.jpg
http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lx...b4yo1_1280.jpg
http://24.media.tumblr.com/e31c168ae...znqgo1_500.jpg

Also, since not many SAO fans have read the LNs, I don't expect many to recognize him. That is fine though, as long as I make a cosplay scary and intimidating enough to get uneasy glances my way. I really feel like I could get into character too c:

Now...I plan to buy airsoft guns and mod them to the LN's specs. I have no idea how to get started with creating a mask like that. I want to include the glowing red eyes and metallic grungy look that he has. The coat looks to be simple, but then again I've never worked with fabric before so that may present a challenge. Any advice?
