Cosplayer Hikarilight > Costume of Kirito from Sword Art Online
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
I started this sometime early 2013 for Con-G (a con in Ontario). I never got to finish it then and had to scrap it because I got confused how to do certain portions of it.
I was randomly motivated to start a SAO cos that I remembered this one and decided to finish it. I had all the material for a year too so why not? I didn't struggle as much as I did a year ago and kind of winged it. It kind of worked in the end?
The jacket consisted of a lot of panels and brainstorming. The same goes with inserting the zipper and attaching the fur to the hood. In the end, I made it work and I'm glad that I did. I had to put functional pockets in because I needed it. Too bad that this fabric kind of bleeds a lot so I had to avoid using the pockets for keeping my phone (it being white and the rubber on the case got dirty when I did put it in).
- Personal Thoughts:
- Sword Art Online is an awesome novel so I'm glad that I picked it up after I started watching the anime! Kirito definitely stuck to me as a character so I definitely wanted to cos him. I didn't think I would want to do so many version of him though.
