Hi again! Sorry to bug you again but I have to ask what were the basic material you used to make your sword? I'm not sure what materials I should use for the blade and the hilt.

MelfinaCosplay Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
It's actually just a curtain rod for the actual blade. :XD: the handle is craft foam rolled around the lower end of the rod, and then I rolled and glued the ribbon on top of that.

Hello! I'm planning to make the same costume for AX. Can you tell me what material you use for the lining of the gold of the corset, the shoulder armor with the strap and the other armor parts?
Reply
:iconmelfinacosplay:
MelfinaCosplay Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
The gold parts of the corset are actually craft foam sealed with elmer's glue, and then spray painted gold. The shoulder armor is mostly Wonderflex, with the craft foam for details. Most of the other little armor parts are either craft foam or model magic. :) I hope that helps, and good luck!

Oooo! No wonder the gold parts look so flexible. Thank you so much! ^^

Your Umi costume is superb~

You're always so beautiful and confident in your costumes and poses. You always do elegant cosplays. I want to see you cosplay someone nuts, like Michael from Angel Sanctuary or something. Maybe an original character? =D

Hi, Jason! Thanks!

I have yet to debut Shion, I'm actually saving her for Otakon, which will be in exactly a week's time from now! I'll be with a Xenosaga group, and performing a skit for the cosplay contest. Erm ... I didn't have time to make the shield. :o But maybe in the future?

Thank you! For the armor, I used wonderflex for the larger pieces, and craft foam for the trims and smaller pieces.
