Cosplayer Melima > Costume of Nariko from Heavenly Sword
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Sword- Insulation foam covered with cheesecloth/glue and the bondo patching plaster. They 2 swords are held together by magnets.
The hip armor is made out of craft foam and rubber tubing (for the edge).
Outfit- I hand-drew all the designs on the fabric. I drafted the top pattern from a robe. The rest of the outfit I constructed my own patterns.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is my second version of this costume. The first version was made in 2008.
- Styling Notes
- After I wore it once, I decided to "dread" the wig using lots of hairspray. This was the first time I ever worked with a wig.
