About this Costume
Construction Details:
I love Kamina! He is sooo great and I knew I just had to cosplay him.

A lot of people don't care for gender-swapping cosplays or whatever you'd call this but I don't care to crossplay and think it's a creative spin on the character. ^_^ I don't care so much for the 'slutty' versions of guy characters so I try to make mine as feminine and true to the character without slutting them up.

CONSTRUCTION:

The Wig needs some styling >_<

The Cape was made using red broadcloth. The Skull was painted on using acrylics and the flames were heat 'n bonded on. I was going for a torn look and intend to make it look more worn and dirty if I ever wear it again

The Bandages around my torso weren't very flattering nor did they hid my chest area very well >_< I plan remade it as a corset and attached bandages to it and that seemed to work a little better

The Skirt is black skirt I found in my closet and then sewed red ribbon around the bottom

The Belt is a karate belt that I painted steel holes onto. In the future I'm going to actual add steel grommets


The Arm Bandages are made from a bandage like material that I sewed together inside out and then rightside out and then ironed flat. It was a royal pain in the ass and I don't recommend making bandages that way >_<

The Tattoos are painted on using liquid latex. I wanted something that could come off easily without staining so I could wear other costumes. Latex works great but it takes a long time to apply and hurts like a bitch when taking it off.
