About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The wig is a Magnum Long that was fluffed to high heaven and a bit thinned out in the back. I was trying to get the big look on top. I'm gonna tweek it a bit before I wear them again. Bought the glasses on Amazon. The cuffs are made from pleather and I had to pull apart a girls belt because I couldn't find studs in my small town. I literally harvested them off a little girls belt from Wal-Mart. They attach with velcro. The shirt is red from Hobby Lobby and I used painters tape to make the stripe edges crisp. I used Matte White fabric glue for the strip. The pants are my favorite part. They are actually leather pants I got for 50 cents at Goodwill on sale. They came up past my belly button, so I made fake belt loops closer to my hips and faked that that was the top of my pants with my belt. I made the belt buckle with craft foam and Killz Primer. Its painted and weather with acrylic paint and a clear coat is put on top. The shoes I bought for 3 dollars at Wal-Mart and altered with some fabric paint in about 5 layers to make them look more like his.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I watched this movie with Harl and Bonk on the way to Anime Expo. I'd just never gotten around to watching it. They were talking about how they needed an Arpegius and Octave at the time. I make this costume and Bonk and I talked Derka into making Octave, I made everyone's belt buckles and the entire group was born.
