So….when i first started on my weapons, I was so excited! Here’s a recap of what i did:
1) Tracing the stencil
2) Carving the stencil using foam board
3) Spray foaming the weapons
4) carved the spray foam to shape the weapon but I ended up shaving a bit too much… After, I had some help from Boss_Emily while I was away on vacation and she paper mached the weapons for me
5) Waiting for it to dry…
6) This was the final outcome of Nurse Akali…Didn’t turn out as I expected though. Had to use cloth to wrap it around so that it could hold the top. We used a bit too much paper mache and it got heavy. Looking forward to next year’s Anime convention!
I will be gradually uploading old videos with additional written commentary.
Components: flu mask, eye shadows, Graftobian Mixing fluid
When many people envision Akali, they imagine a ninja who wears a mask and no makeup. This was my belief until I took a closer look at the classic NA splash art. Riot did an excellent job by incorporating rich red melon tones around her lids. Red and green are complementary pairs. This choice makes Akali’s eyes appear brighter. If red is not your color then I would recommend applying black eyeliner to create almond-shaped eyes. Most importantly, have fun!
I hope everyone’s Easter weekend went swell! I’ve been so busy these past couple of days. Today’s post I was going to showcase a piano video but I had no time to record myself, so I’ll show you what I’ve been able to do for my cosplay of Akali. So earlier on, I showed you guys my weapons. Since then I’ve covered them with foam and the next step is to cut it and paint it. My friend in the meantime has helped me with Akali’s costume herself and I can say I’m pretty much ready for ANIME NORTH! I’m so excited for this, this will be my first time at this convention so I don’t know what to expect, but I’m sure it’ll be a lot of FUN!!!
Take a look at my weapons!
Hey guys, so I just started making my Akali costume for Anime North happening in May. I pretty much have the weapons done. I made a stencil, then carved it out of foam board.
Here’s what it looks like so far!
We printed out the 3d model of one of her weapons. We tried to make it to scale and then I traced it onto foam board and carved it out with an exacto knife.
So what do you guys think? Stay tuned for more updates on my costume!! Don’t i look so cool?!
