Cosplayer Hikarilight > Costume of Aichi Sendou from Cardfight!! Vanguard
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This entire outfit was a pain in the butt to do. I originally thought it would be a simple costume and pretty cheap since I owned stuff for it already from leftovers. I was totally wrong about that.
The first jacket I made, I decided that I didn't like the choice of colour for the teal, and remade it. I only decided to remake it because the wig I got was too dark. I bought a new wig that is brighter. The jacket had to stand out more with that brighter wig. I thought the wig wouldn't work in the end after receiving it. I managed to get it to work by moving some wefts. These were the first two hurdles I had to overcome.
Next, I couldn't find the knit but thank god it was found! Too bad I didn't have enough so I had to improve with how the turtleneck was made. I made it shorter than I liked to accomodate with lack of fabric but after finishing it, I noticed that I could have made it longer without any issues.
The pants were also another issue as finding the right colour was annoying. I made the pants in two days before the con and almost thought I screwed up and had to remake it. Luckly, it worked in the end! However, the shoes I originally wanted to wear with this didn't fit under the pants so I had to use what I had on hand.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I didn't think I would love this series as much as I do! I thought of checking it out after seeing so many advertisements in Japan. It was a slow start but I kind of fell in love with it pretty fast.
Originally, I didn't like Aichi but he eventually grew on me near the end of the first season. All of those that watch it would know why.
- Styling Notes
- The wig didn't have enough hair on the sides like I thought it would. I had to move wefts to make his larger bang longer and stand out. I still wish there were more hair on the sides but I can't move anymore wefts. I'm tempted to buy a second wig to add hair in but that's not really worth the price.
