Kingdom Hearts Cloud Strife

This is MOSTLY made by me. Keep in mind I didn't sew EVERYTHING.
I made the cape and 'shoulder harness/waste belt/buckle' thing. I made the round buckle out of sculpy like clay (off brand stuff but whatever) I also used vinyl straps and buckles and made the thy belt and calf belts. I also made the wierd wrist thing..I don't know what it's called. And I am remaking the sword. I will post more pics once I get the sword re done, finish the arm thing and make the armor. I also styled the wig and altered the shirt as little
Anyway..Good?

Here is the costume folder for this one(the bottom 3 on the right are more after I fixed the cape):

The thread spools on the bangle was a clever thought I liked it. Looks like it is on track so far!

MythicalsMarina, thank you I've worked REAL hard on all of this..

StabbityBlkMage, Thank you as well, and yea, I actually started thinking I could use a few round foamies with gesso, then I was gonna cut up a dowel and use those for the things that stick out. Then I noticed the Organization coat hardware I make and was like...."Woa..Wait a sec....YES!! THAT WILL WORK!!" and decided then to use the spools lol

Also just so everyone knows no one will need to say anything about that sword..I'm making a new one that is much lighter to carry around all day..That one is too heavy and will make the costume feel hotter..So yea..I will post that one when I'm done (should be about 2 weeks at the lasest from now)

I think it looks great! Spot on! Only suggestion I would make is to get some Got To Be Glued and redo the spikes at the ends where they are separating a bit.

Looking good!

The hair could use some low-lighting - a little bit of dark. It's too bright solid yellow. Maybe it's "accurate" that way but I just don't think it looks quite right. I don't know how to accomplish this, though - if it were solid or even fabric, you could give it a quick rinse with a very dilute dark-brown paint wash, and the wash would collect in the recesses and give it texture and definition. But if it's a styled wig, that definitely won't work. I don't know.


That Fenrir keyblade in your Sora album is flippin' sweet - did you make it?

nathancarter, THANK YOU ^_^
Yea I know the wig is bright as crap, But his hair in the game is actually YELLOW..So I chose..YELLOW lol And actually it's the only color I have found that closely matches his hair in Kingdom Hearts 1 so..
And no it's not fabric..It's a normal styled wig. I refuse to use fabric as a wig as it is nowhere near accurate to hair..

And no, I did not make the Fenrir. I got it on ebay..Though I SHOULD HAVE made it..It wouldn't be the 15 goddamn pounds that this one is!! >.<

Sword looks really good! As it stands right now though it will look very flat in pictures so I'd highly recommend doing some weather with black acrylic and paper towels. Especially at the hilt where the knobby dome things are. Think of weather as applying makeup to your prop, gotta make it look like a Saturday night knockout!

Since another poster mentioned the color of my wig, I agree and styled a new one today. Take a look. It's MUCH less bright and looks more like a real hair color lol
I also got the gloves complete and have a pic of those too.

I also have new pics of my armor. Well they aren't NEW but I didn't mention I had them up lol
