Cosplayer Emmacchi > Costume of Kite (Hunter X Hunter)
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
This is the easiest costume I've ever made, and arguably the most comfortable. The turtleneck is a white two-way stretch knit, and the pants are sateen. The haramaki is also a stretch knit - great idea in theory, less great in practice, since over time it has stretched out and now needs to be pinned each time I wear it. A lot of people have asked me where I got my hat, and let me tell you, I used a Vogue hat pattern for it, and it was the easiest thing I made for the costume. It's sateen lined with a thick black polyester, and it took me maybe an hour to make. Don't fear making hats! The best part of this costume is my scythe, made for Otakon 2014 by Hazard, which is over 6' tall!
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume started as a joke about Kite deserving a beer, so I made it to get him one.
- Styling Notes
- Trimmed the bangs and clipped the excess to the sides. It's all hidden under the hat anyway.
- Wig Review
- I am always going to go to Epic for long wigs. They are really resistant to tangling, and that's really awesome.
