It's a Wig and weapon.

About wig,Hairline and natural hair‐bundle is  most important.

I don’t use spray and glue for Axel (Kingdom Hearts) hairline,want to keep soft.

I use the Kabuki actor’s glue instead, it like a natural.

About weapon, I aim for make a three-dimendional.  Because I don’t like a paper-thin weapon.So,I'm very particular about make a weapon.

I'm a beginner at cosplay.I don't know if I'll be of any help, but I tell you how to make molding.First of all,if I make a molding,I use cutter knife to heat insulator.

Then, act of coating things with a thin layer of stone powder clay. Styrofoam will probably melt by the lacquer composition.So,it’s need to coating of something. Stone powder clay is fragile, so I’m looking for strong coating.It's future subject.

About wig is I went to lecture class of COSNAVI.

They taught me about make a combed-back hair,and others.

When once go to lecture class,you can make a wig to certain extent.

If you want go lecture class,I recommend to tell instructor what you want to know in advance.

But,cosplay is freedom.We can freely to make a wig and molding.I always strive to learn fundamentals and step up to an advanced level.Because it will be quality improvement.

Q.Where do you usually cosplay?
Q. What is "cosplay" for you?

Yokkun

I think that cosplay is a work made with photographers and everyone.

I'll same pose for 30 minutes,if we not get a satisfactory result. Because we are very particular about the pose.

As long as I borrow the name of that character, I think cosplay is becomes a fake close to the real one.

Part 6. A final word

Photographers are those who will make us the first work. If you find a cameraman that suits yourself,  if you become good friends with cameraman can make a more good works.

These days photographers and layersare have a many problems. So,I think that it is important to have consideration for others.
