Cosplayer blue_eyed_fairy > Costume of Tenkou from Yami no Matsuei
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Costume satins to the rescue! I had a limited budget so I had to be super thrifty. Everything is costume satin except for the wide trim on the outer robe and on the obi, I splurged on some brocade. The head dress I am proud of because everything (except the paint) came from the dollar store!!! Styrofoam balls coated in styro-coat and then metallic acrylic paint. All wired together and wired to a head band. Extra fabric for the braid and beads draped and glued down.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is kinda a big deal for me. Anime Boston 2012 marks it's 10th anniversary as a convention and for me as a cosplayer. I really wanted to remake my first cosplay to mark the occasion. I didn't get it 100% finished in time for AB but I will finish it in time for the next con!!
- Styling Notes
- I pulled some of the sides up into a half tail and clipped in place.
- Wig Review
- I have used Arda before and like them, but I was disappointed with what I got.
When it came in it was not the right colors. It had pink and blond with a green blue. I found this on ebay for half of what I paid for the Arda Wig.
