KH2 Sora - Oath by AmenoKitarou KH2 Sora - Oath by AmenoKitarou
Kingdom Hearts II, Sora cosplay~

Thank you so much for Daily Deviation!!:icontearplz:


This is from a quick (seriously QUICK) shoot outside the venue of Supanova 2011 with the epic Icie.

Sora costume and prop, made and worn by

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About the costume:
Costume: Completed in 3 days. Nothing really special went on the the sewing of the costume.
Interesting bits include: The giant zipper was actually made from EVA skin sheets, for the EXTRA GINORMOUS teeth. Shoulder pads are made from silver vinyl.
The balloon pants are lined with heavy fabric to give it some mass. I left gaps in the lining to allow airflow, so the pants actually inflate like a balloon when I bend my legs which is pretty cute

Necklace and Buckles: all modeled from Sculpy oven dry clay.

Gloves:Nothing too special. I bought a pair of gloves and stuck belts and pads onto them. Completed in 30 minutes.

Shoes: These are my pride and joy. I got a pair of rubber beach shoes, taped a massive amount of Hobby Fill to the front then covered the shoe with stretch material for the big round look. Zippers and belts were then attached one after another. Completed in 3 hours.

Wig: styled from a punky wig. nothing too special. A can of hairspray and a tube of got2be hair gel and a blow dryer. Completed in 5 hours. Destroyed by the wind at the beaches of Perth in 2 seconds. DX


Keyblades:

Oathkeeper:The base was first cut out from a single sheet of 12mm MDF wood.
Then a router was used on all appropriate edges for the first contours.
Further details and contours were then built on with DAS modelling clay, and sanded smooth once dry.

The paupu fruit is a hand sewn plushy. The leave that's attached to it is a real leaf that I picked from my garden.

The paint job was done with several enamel spray paints.
I chose a metallic blue for the center of the colourful detail of the keyblade to give it a much more elegant shine instead of the rather kindergarten colours that dark blue gives off when applied next to yellow.
The wings were done with a gradient of dusk gray and beige to enhance the smoothness of the feathers.

I don't own an airbrush, so all the gradient effects were done by extremely careful spraying with the spray can that the paints came in.

Completed in about 14 days on and off over the course of a whole year.


Enjoy ^^ :iconhohoplz:

Yea, so um, I kinda really love this. A lot.
Everything about this shot is superb! I especially love Oathkeeper~ but that's probably because I really do just love that damn Keyblade to pieces. :heart:

And I gotta say, that you making that whole costume is awesome! Props, man, to the shoes!
Definitely one of THE BEST Sora cosplays, here on DA. No doubt. (:

Well in my opinion, they have a much better existence now, being Sora's shoes. :dance:
