Cosplayer CyberBird > Costume of Haseo from .hack//GU
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- There is a lot less fabric work on this costume than there is "armor" work. The shirt has tons of piping and lined detailing added to the sides and bottom, and the backside has a stitched on gear and ends in a point; it's one of my favorite parts.
The bottoms of the pants are airbrushed to fade into black. All of the armor is made with foamie, spray paint, and hand-done acrylics, as well as silver leafing. Most of the parts are held on with velcro.
The props were made by Lionel! He had old props he leant me in 2012, and redid entirely new ones for me in 2014.
Some improvements that I made from the 2012 to 2014 versions:
-New paint job/distressing on all armor
-Updated show covers
-Improves shirt lines
-New leather arm pieces/buckles
-New upper arm armor pieces
-Redone collar gear
-New tattoos (printable tattoo paper is MAGIC)
-Same wig, better styling
There are STILL things I want to fix, like making the shirt tighter so it sits better on me and the hip armor, and moving the collar further upwards, but overall it performed wonderfully and nothing fell apart! Ahaha, that's what truly matters.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Haseo has always been a character I have loved and I had been trying to find the time to make this version for a couple of years. I finally pushed myself to finish in 2012, and left a few things off, but came back to it in 2014 and finished/improved details! There are some images from 2012 here, but most are from the new 2014 improvements.
- Styling Notes
- Bangs were slightly cut and styled in the front, sides of wig were straightened.
