Lugia Cosplay by Swooping-Puma Lugia Cosplay by Swooping-Puma
TA DAH! Finally some presentable photos of lugia! My newset cosplay creation.

Ya I know I haven't really been doing anything new on the cosplay front, but in reality I've had this guy done since halloween. It was only a few days ago I added a jaw and made some presentable white leg warmers. I'm so glad I added the Jaw. Not only does it look a little bit more "realistic", but it keeps that darn back heavy hat on my head! That would've been very useful during the parade now wouldn't have? [I walked 5K in this costume in november for the christmas parade.]

Cost? 5 bucks. :P All I had to buy was the t-shirt! The rest was made from free fabric I got from my grandma way back when I started cosplay [remember my yuffie cloak anyone?] As well as just other white clothing I had around. The head is made out of Upholstrey foam, black pleather for the eyes, and some stuffing for the wings/hands. There is also chicken wire in the fingers that come together in the palm so I can control the hand more. There's also a wire in the tail. :)

This is definitely my favourite costume so far- and I have a feeling that it's just one of those costumes that's only going to get better. I already have plans to make it better for Con-g... but I've run out of free fabric. XD So off to the store for me!

[I also entered my first masqurade with Lugia during Emiko Minicon 4. Such awesome people there! I'll update with the results of the contest ASAP]

It was really hard! I had to do some sewng at some extreme angles, and they still aren't even on both sides. But I'm really happy based on the work I put into them. ^^ The only way you can see them is if you look down, which will become one of the things I fix in the coming months :)

Okay. I'm impressed you still have the motivation to work on it. Are you bringing this costume to Anime North by the way?

If I'm not to busy with the end of the school year- I hope to show up just for the saturday and hang out just outside. I don't want to spend as much money on it as I have in past years. I'm also bringing it to Con-G this year on the sunday. :)
