One more cool picture of my Akali cosplay from Shudan Pictures
I spend much more time, energy and money on that costume that I planned to, but I'm quite happy with the costume itself ! ( being happy with me is another story x) ...) Costume details :
the mask is hand made with air drying clay
the wig was styled using a short base wig, and two ponytails. (I just removed the clips, sewed the ponytails together, added a polystyrene base on the top of the base and put the ponytails on it to give it more volume).
The outfit is made with red silk lined with white microfiber and all patterns are embroided (with a zigzag point with normal sewing machine) with embroidering thread (that was the most long and tidious part...). See full details on my dedicated tumblr
The back decoration base is made with two layers of polystyrene and the detailes were carved using a scalpel to have a result as clean as possible.
Each weapon was made using a broomstick, a MDF board, 2 layers of polystyrene foam, before I applied coating and painting. (this was really long and hard to make, you can see full details on my dedicated tumblr
