The most difficult acessory you have ever done.

Hi people!
Tell me: What was the most difficult acessory you have ever made?
Well, I've never cosplayed but I make some acessories from some characters and I keep it to myself.
For me the most difficult (and the most expensive) was the Vash and Knives' guns. Cause I wanted to make it perfectly. You know when Vash use that angel weapon? I was about to finish that "power generator" inside of the gun when my bro broke the gun.
The gun cost me about 60 dollars and now it's all ruined!!!
Unless I still have the Vash's sunglasses. It was very cheap! Something about 9 to 10 bucks.

The most difficult accessory I've ever done is the one I'm going to make for CN anime expo this year. We're doing a Slayers group so I want to make a accurate Valgarv costume complete with his Ravdomezehis weapon. Since the two end blades are "light beams" I'm trying to figure out how to light up the ends using a battery of somekind......

probably the adoreable Carro plushies that i made about 8 of...I made their tails light up by placing a small torch in the tail before sealing it in...unfortunately the bulbs seem to be shortlived since all the torches seem to have stopped working for some reason or another....
That's about it...the Granasabre and my Suboshi Ryuseisyu are the only other accesory i have ever had to make...oh yeah...that WildArms 3 gun too..but that was far easier!

It kept on falling off...and the boots...ahh....same problem.

Hmm... my three wings? LOL Those are a constant pain in the neck and I have to repair them after every con. I don't even want to think about how many turkeys died for the honour of being on my back!

I have a bit of a tie. The headband on my Pretear costume was a pain -- I ended up doing a simplified version of it, because I'm not that talented with Model Magic ^^;;. Second, my floating arm-band for Aeka was difficult. If I used a sturdy wire, it would show, but if I used a less visible one, it would flop around ^^;;. So I had to play around for a quite a while before I got it ok, and it still flops around a bit >.<.

LMAO

This is really random but I love how you call your Morrigan wings (attacked to you waist) a "pain in the butt" and I call my Rosiel wings (attached to my shoulders) a "pain in the neck".

hmmm... evil....
a tie...

Jibrilles neck thing!! the thing that ties and has the lace trim.. that was PURE evil... getting those little metal rings in for the tie ribbon to go through... such a headache. those things dont agree with the semi-transparent fabrics...

and the hilt of beatrix's sword. i made it with model magic... it cracked a lot so i ended up going back with some watered down model magic (makes a great puddy) to fill in the cracks... insanity O.o


i've learned too much about model magic..... -.-;

Inuyasha's sword, Tetsuaiga. I made it out of foam core and bondo-glass (it has fiberglass in it for strength). It took me about 30 hours, and it is still not perfect. It's the first time I've ever attempted anything artistic like that - but I think I did a pretty good job because it came out great! But all that sanding - there was fiberglass dust everywhere =P

My only difficult costume was my Honey costume, and she had all these weird pieces to make. The most difficult were these leg pieces with metal rings on the outside and inside of each leg and was attached with some sort of garter belt. I made a pattern but had to keep adjusting it so it wouldn't look baggy, but it was too hard and take too long to hem, so the edges are a little frayed... the metal rings were also heavy so it had to be as tight as possible, and they would be secured on with velcro. The first leg piece was such a mess. Then making the garter belt was interesting.. it certainly was waaaayy more complicated than any other garter belt. o.o;;; Very discouraging.
