This arch is the road bridge at the Leptis Magna ruins folly, a folly at Virginia Water in Windsor Great Park. The folly features columns and lintels taken from the ancient Roman city of Leptis Magna (they're out of view of this shot, being either side of the railings, although some may form the feature seen through the arch).
You may use this shot as stock, but please attribute me as the original photographer and link back where possible.
Please do not steal this, claim it as your own or upload it to other sites. I made it all by myself and the pictures are all mine too. Peace.
This is my second tutorial ever made so excuse me for it's eventual errors, grammar fails and general crappyness. English is not my mother tongue but I hope it's possible to understand anyway and that it's useful to some Byakuya Kuchiki cosplayers out there!
I made this because I know Byakuya is a popular character to cosplay and probably quite some people struggle with how to make his kenseikans, including me. I was a bit clueless too and when my cosplay plans changed, less than a month before the con, I didn't really have time to go buy stuff so I decided to try and make them out of what I had already close at hand; they turned out good enough so I figured I could show you all how I made mine.
Please comment/tell me if this was useful for you and I'd love to see how your kenseikans turned out if you made them by following this tutorial! Feel free to ask any questions about the construction if something is unclear, I will try to answer but I can't promise my explanations will make sense.
