Cosplayer Yukari Kaiba > Costume of Sanada Yukimura from Sengoku Basara
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Jacket - made out of white vinyl and completely lined in cotton (first lined garment too!). Interfacing in the collar to make it stand up, hand-punched the studs into the upper sleeves, and attached genuine suede to the lower sleeves using vinyl adhesive. The flame detail is a textured satin that was wonder-undered onto the vinyl & then stitched on, with 3D paint to finish the edges. Yen insignia on the back is craft foam, sealed and painted with 3 coats goldenrod and 2 coats antique gold acrylics, then finished with gold rub'n buff on the edges.
Chest guard - white vinyl, used a pattern I made with a t-shirt
Pants - white upholstery fabric, flame detailing on the bottom is the same silver satin used on the jacket. Heat'n bonded on and edges detailed in 3D paint.
Armor - the greaves & waist armor are all leather, painted respectively with white and black leather paints and corded with suede cording where needed. Underneath the greaves I made leg sleeves out of leftover vinyl that are open in the center with elastic straps (which get hidden by the greaves).
Headband - black twill
Gloves - black gloves with white vinyl-covered foamie on top of the hands
Shoes - flip flops modded with elastic
Spears - same set from my default Yukimura, as the color of the spears doesn't change with the white variant of the Revoltech figure
- Personal Thoughts:
- I am immensely proud of this cosplay - I really wanted to make this outfit the best that I've done and push my skills, and I believe I really achieved it. Can definitely say by far this is the most well made cosplay I've done in all the year I've been invested into this hobby.
