"Existence: Unknown..." by Karakuri-nin

/ / ©2009-2015 Karakuri-nin
Taken on 26/12/2009, EOY'09@National Library, Singapore.

Game Series: BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
Character:
V-13 (Nu) - :iconkarakuri-nin:

Photographer: :iconkulagg:

Thanks :iconkulagg: for the photo, I pumped in more lighting to further enhance the shot and is very glad with the results yay. =D

--------------------

If anyone could see, the blade of my Murakumo unit is actually in the background haha. It totally fell apart though. Damn the crowd. I've never done so much for a cosplay before, everything except for my bodysuit base (tailored) is DIY-ed.

Things done by me: wig layering and styling, hair armour, dyeing lycra, bodysuit armour pieces, eyepatch, cloak, cloak patterns, cloak rings, talismans, collar, collar plate, gloves, Murakumo unit (giant sword)

I took references from practically all the images with Nu(as the accuracy is very inconsistent); Official CG, in-game, storymode CG, animation sequence, official artwork.

Special thanks to:
- :iconnori36: for rushing my cloak with me and sewing it down
- :icond-a-i-k-o-n: for accompanying me to get materials and coming over to help with talismans and my cloak patterns.
- Sister for saikang-ing my heavy luggage.
- Aunty Ida for plaiting my wig because everyone said I plait ugly plaits DAMNIT.


More thoughts on EOY in a journal post I guess.

Hi! I am making my V-13 cosplay for next years anime fest and I was wondering how did you make the pattern for her jumpsuit and what material did you use.

:iconkarakuri-nin:
Karakuri-nin Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2010
Hello~

I got plain white lycra and tinted it a baby blue tone with cold dye. As for the pattern, we used something like a corset-undergarment for references/followed swimsuit pattern inside. Smth like this... [link] for the bottom, so that it wouldn't split so easily. =D

All the best!

Thank you! I really apreciate it! I was also wondering if you did the blade on Nu's hair?

:iconkarakuri-nin:
Karakuri-nin Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010
No worries. Yep I did. *is pretty darn anal about details >_<*

But that was shoddily done on the morning of the event itself with some leftover craft foam and pvc sheet ><

Oh. Well I am also doing the Blade, any tips? Just so i dont end up causing myself uneccesary headaches.

No worries, pretty easy once you get the foam. Just cut, glue and attach (:

Just awesome. The eyepatch looks very realistic and so does the eyecolor. My only point of criticque would be to say that i would`ve liked to see the rest of the cosplay as well.. ^^
