Cosplayer Luluko > Costume of Saber (Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus) from Fate/Extra
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Originally planned for AX 2012. Tried to do it in the space of a month, spent a bunch of time in the hotel room. Nowhere near finished but I wore it so as not to disappoint my partners. Tried to fix it up in time for SabotenCon 2012 but that didn't work out either. Currently I've ripped the whole thing up and I'm starting from scratch.
- Styling Notes
- I pulled back the wefts in the back half of the wig and clumped them together by stitching bias tape straight down onto the hair with my machine, since pinning alone didn't keep them locked in place. The ahoge is currently held up with a lot of glue, hope, and a bobby pin. The bun was made from half a floral foam ball that I first covered with a mixture of yellow acrylic paint and Gesso to reinforce it. Over the course of several days I cut 1-inch wide wefts, sprayed them with hair spray, and hot-glued them to the foam. The braid was made by hair-spraying larger chunks of wefts and braiding them together. I attached the braid with hot glue and sewed the whole thing to the wig. The ribbons are interchangeable since this is also the wig I use for Arturia, and plan to use for future Saber costumes. The ribbons are pre-tied and sewn onto pins which I can swap out easily. I plan to add more extensions to the sides since the hair is quite thin.
