DescriptionBasically this costume wasn't too difficult to make, but I wanted to make a point of making it as well as I could hence the use of leather and other hardy materials. Because of that, this outfit took me a surprisingly long time to complete. It still has a few issues that I need to work through since they didn't become apparent until I had to wear the whole thing for 8-hours straight (!!). That said, I'm really excited to wear it again!
- The costume is hand painted.
- The hip armor is made of hardened leather and brass that my friends helped fit to me.
- The amazing sword was made by S.T.E.N.D.E.X. The two blades are held together as one with hard drive magnets.
- The hardest part was by far the wig. If you want to check out how I made it, there is both a tutorial on cosplay.com (http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/180612/) and a more detailed version on my blog/website (http://foxtalecosplay.wordpress.com/tutorial-nariko-wig/)
Foxtale To answer the physique question (btw, thank you!): I tend to keep myself pretty fit through activities, etc. in general, but yet. At the time I was working out about 6 days a week, 1-3 hours a day to get in extra super special Nariko condition. Thanks for noticing!
