well anyway 00 kept insisting that i looked like karma and after much convincing and research, i did find a costume that i like of her. this was considered the reworked version.
you can see that i had linings on all the back. well i have plenty of leftover cloth and it looks much nicer (and more comfortable to be worn) right?
there's a few different layers for just the top, but eventually i stuck all of them together using either glue or sewing so it will be easier to wear (but in a way, harder to keep).
this is the base for her front flap. by the way i think the cloth i selected this time is pretty nice. hur. but i had to insist strongly on using PVC cos 00 felt that tibetans (karma is from tibet) would use silk to do their costume more than pvc. i didn't like silk and satin so while i had some satin, i felt that pvc would give more depth cos of the patterns there are. i think my combination turns out pretty ok though!
we actually argued a lot over what should be the color of the boots as 00 insisted it was black and it looks purplish cos of the lighting. but i followed the picture and i think dark purple makes more sense and is nicer! since i'm the crafter, i win. hoho.
i did the shoe base separately then sewed it together before pasting on the shoe itself.
made the base out of foam, then stuck with pvc for the earrings.
here's how everything looks like when put together. and yes, everything here is 1 piece - they are all stuck together. hahhahah. even the hand armour, cos the tip of the shoulder flap is joined to the wrist of the handguard.
and lastly her wig cutting. i love her hair, because of the lopsided cascading style. the extensions are a mix of red and pink, and the front extensions were supposed to be attached to the pyramid so i didn't trim them yet.
her shoulder suspended wings were done by ark and 00 but it wasn't completed in time so that's why we couldn't go to the busan comic world. sighs. guess i'll have to make them here myself. and in the end, i didn't bring the costume back cos my luggage was crazy. only brought the wig back for some reasons. lol.
i'm missing a hell lot of pictures!!! when i transferred my pictures some of them got corrupted in the sd card. argh.
