Cosplayer Dust Bunny > Costume of Talim from Soul Calibur 3
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Patterns were hand drafted by me, gold details were embroidered using an applique method. That method is http://dust-bunny.deviantart.com/gallery/28584970#/d390kz4 The armor pieces were created with foamies and model magic, they attach with velcro. The Tonfas were created with pvc pipe, a dowel rod, model magic and pink insulation foam, a tutorial is here: http://dust-bunny.deviantart.com/gallery/28584970#/d392zvv
- Personal Thoughts:
- I am still very proud of the craftsmanship on this costume even 2 years later. I am so glad I was finally able to get some high quality shots of the costume. It is still one of my favorites.
- Styling Notes
- The wig was released from it's high pigtails and was amazingly thick. I trimmed the wig to the correct length using a razor and thinning shears. Then I split each pigtail in half to create Talim's signature hairstyle, and teased them a bit to give them the correct thickness (however not much teasing was needed). Decorative cuffs made out of model magic were attached to each pigtail. The bangs were slicked back into the sides of the wig, but some wisps were left out to create softness.
