So this is the first costume I have ever fully made from scratch. All my others have been purchased and modified to fit me and work for that I need. But this one started as piles of fabric and thread. So please give me some input on how I am doing and yes I know parts are missing.
Hand Guard/Sleeve extension on the long sleeves
First you might want to add a reference image to your post. (:
Second, I love Miyazaki's work and this is a great cosplay of it!!! Your half sleeves and jacket/kimono top look great. My only thing is that the belt on the jacket should be a bit darker. I love the colors you chose for everything else though! Very nice work! Also on the wig/your hair try to see if you can get it to lay a bit flatter. It seems to have a bit too much volume and flip for Ashitaka's hair. (:
Nice work! I can't wait to see the finished product!
Thank you Noize for the input. Yeah the hair could use some help, but that was just pulled out of the bag no brushing done at all. lol
I am planning on having the hood/cowl part so the hair will be mostly hidden unless I take it off.
Sorry I haven't updated recently I was planning my wedding. Now that the wedding is over I can resume making Ashitaka.
I am a little stuck on how to make the legwarmers, riding pants and shoes. Does anyone have any advice on making those?
