Cosplayer Balni > Costume of Sanada Yukimura from Sengoku Basara
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Pleather for the coat and man-bra was found in my friend's grandma's basement.
Armor is craft foam, sealed with glue and finished with acrylic paint, laced together with leather cord.
Oh man. I had so much help on this costume it isn't even funny. Time to list credits!
Drakochan/Kristin helped me figure out what went where in the coat.
ClassyTopHat/Ryluu, my beloved ninja, helped me assemble my coat and assemble the armor in the hotel room at Detour.
SolusAurora helped me decipher the pattern.
faecakes/Kimmu was my sewing buddy.
Emmy is my BEAUTIFUL GINGER SEWING GODDESS and helped me construct my pants and finish the jacket.
ocelotdude/Gen did my shoes for me.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume is my baby. So much work has gone into this costume from so many people, so much blood, sweat, and tears (literally, Emmy bled on my pants), and I love it to death. Some things still need to be fixed, like hemming the sleeves and adding a few more leather bits and FINDING THE CORRECT GLOVES, but I am just...so happy with this. It is definitely above and beyond anything I have ever done, and it's all thanks to my wonderful friends! I love Yukimura to bits, he is by far my favorite Basara character and one of my top characters of all time. I'm just glad I can do him justice!
EDIT: I got a photo with a real live baby tiger cub. Best cosplay ever.
