This is my cosplay of Umi Ryuzaki from "Magic Knight Rayearth". I really love this character so I hope I have rendered justice to her with my cosplay! Unfortunately, some parts were completed quickly (and grossly) in the days immediately before the comic fair in which I had to wear this cosplay! Hope you like it despite the small faults ^^
A super-special thanks to for the immense help he gave me in the realization of the whole cosplay!
This costume was done for Lucca Comics and Games 2012. A challenge, really XD I never made an armor before, I think it turned out ok even if it isn't very comfortable to move in it. The sword too, was my first one, overall I like it, except for the gems; I used a cheap resin to make them and they turned out ugly, there wasn't enough time to remake them so yeah... What do you think? Any tip will help me improve~
Cosplay made and worn by: Character: Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth Photo by:
I always wanted to cosplay more badass warrior characters. My 1st choice was Hikaru because she can still be cute and cheerful or a tough girl. Model: Me as Hikaru Shidou from Magic Rayearth Knights Costume&Wig&Makeup Me Photographer:Rui Silva Edition: Me Cosplay is self-made A huge thanks from the bottom of my heart to my boyfriend who made the construction of this sword possible. ♥
This is photo of my favourite and best self-made cosplay so far (well, mum helped me a bit ^^). I really love Hikaru and those clothes and i attended a cosplay contest in my country with this cosplay. I was at 4th place. Photo by Filip "Gorthaur" Blažek.
The Magic Knights Rayearth cover art cosplay group that I worked all summer on. I am Fuu (the green one). My friend =Animus-Panthera did all the fabric work, jewelry, and resin stuff that you see. I did mostly props and armor and wigs. Armor is a combination of craft foam armor and expanding foam. My sword is wood. You heard that right. Completely wood. It's a heavy bugger but sooo worth it.
Finally I've got some photos from our photoshoot in water I've spent two whole weeks by making this costume with almost no sleeping =___= But I think it wasn't wasted time (and money, it wasn't cheap), I really like this cosplay
