Cosplayer Jax Mari > Costume of Akito / Agito Wanijima from Air Gear
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The jacket was made out of orange fleece, I drew the pattern myself. The stripes were put on with white iron-on bias tape with black bias tape sewn to the edges. Same with the zipper.
Allthough this is something I plan to do later - I am going to put eyelets on the straps coming out of the jacket, and snaps on the ends of the straps on the sleeves. (I prefer snaps instead of buckles, because of my own preference to not get STUCK in my striaght jacket lol). I'm going to also make a mask that can be attached if I feel the need for it.
The pants were some old khaki pants I had laying around in my closet that I never wore anymore.
The straps were made out of orange cotton, which was cut twice as wide as I intended it to be then ironed like bias tape, then sewn together. The straps on the pants are sewn on.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is my favorite cosplay to date that I have done, I worked very hard on it, and spent the most money on this one, being my most expensive cosplay to date.
I'll still continue to work on minor details to perfect it before it is ever worn to a convention, but for the most part it's finished and I'm happy with it :)
- Styling Notes
- The wig came in the perfect length, color, and style. I only needed to trim the bangs.
- Wig Review
- Very high quality wig. Good materials, thick, and styled great.
