anbu cosplay(arm guards are finished!)
hey guys, some might remember me saying a bit ago that I will be going to an anime expo on July 18-20th. Well for the most part I thought I wouldn't have the money to go and not have the time to make my cosplay outfit. But as I was googling outfits and sulking in my sadness I remember that it will be happening right at mid month payday and was like. "OMG I CAN GO!" So I know I dont have a lot of time to make a outfit so I search for some thing simple and still going with the family theme(my brothers are all going as naruto toons) I have decided on the anbu.
now i can easily customize a white blouse to a tank and find a black shirt for underneath. I found some black loose fitting pants. Now I need ideas on how to make a mask, the arm guards and anything to make it different from the norm.
Shower me with your ideas. I am excited to get the creative juices flowing
Well for the mask you just need a paper mache thing. Is that a tattoo or something on the arm? You could replicate that with henna. You can obviously use black gloves for the arms but I'm not sure what for the metal bit, maybe a thick silver material? Or some sprayed cardboard?
good news , the major modification is complete, once I get my cam charged up i will take pics, now I just have to work on the little details and the mask. I am so excited!!!!
Omg thats a beautiful cosplay costume ^^ have allot of fun when you go to that anime expo!
i just finished making the kunai(spelling might be off)the naruto daggaers, I am going to wait till they dry before I blog it tonight. I also added some D rings to the vest so I could get some ribbon and hang it off of them, since its texas weather I dont want to wear a scarf or a cloak with it so I used the ribbon for that flowing effect.
The arm guards my husband said when we get paid we can get some at a sports good store and spray paint them.
So far we are doing good, and I will keep you all posted.
Kyaa... ....Can't wait to see it
http://sugarcoated-chaos.blogspot.com/ check out the kunai and the leg part of the costume and tell me what you guys think.
=O I like it! it looks so real ^^
aaaaaaaaaah why did i take a silly tylonl pm pill....oh ya cause i have a headache and of course thats when I have a brilliant idea and trying to hurry up before snoozing off begins. lol but any who i have an awesome idea for arm guards for it. I took the two narrow panels from my daughter's diaper box an tape it over with white take to cover the purple packaging and then took my white knee high panty hose(that i had left over from when I made those fairy wings) and covered it. next I will use the elastic for under to attach to arm and poof! I will keep you posted, pics more likely in tommorows blog
