first ever cosplay!!!

Post by kantari » Tue Aug 24, 2004 6:47 pm

here's the deal,.,.,.
my friend really wants me to go with her as Misao (from rurouni kenshin) for sakuracon 05.
the only problem is that i have no idea ow to make a Misao costume...

I'm pretty sure i can figure out the obi, shorts, and leg wraps but the top and the arm guards look hard...

any suggestions???

Just as a suggestion, if you post this in the construction forums, you'll most likely get more/better replies ;)

Become the wind, the divine wind, and into the darkness disappear..
