Cosplayer Hikarilight > Costume of Kirito from Sword Art Online
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I didn't think I would make the noob outfit but a friend of mine had asked me to do it for his Klein. Sadly, we never go to shoot together at the time of the event because some things happened to him..
There were so many issues with this costume and the problem was lack of fabric. I had to squeeze everything in the scraps I had and rip apart an old costume to get the right colour fabric, and even then, the colour isn't accurate.
The shirt itself had so many issues and details. The details and inconsistencies in the images floating around messed me up. I managed to make the sleeves too short and had to somehow squeeze out two more sleeves. The main blue fabric is kind of thin so it doesn't sit right with the light blue twill. It somehow worked?
I could not find pleather in the colour I wanted for the vest so I used the same fabric for his main belt and painted it with acrylic paints. I used a sponge instead of a brush and it gave it a more rustic look?
The boot covers, I need to remake. They look nice on its own but they look too big on my own feet. I guess that's something to keep in mind the next time.
Also I decided that this wig just doesn't suit and isn't that accurate anyway so I will be using a different wig as well.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I really fell in love with Sword Art Online and Kirito is just the type of character I like! I'm sad that the anime ended but the novel is still going!
