This Guitar is my Only Love by HezaChan This Guitar is my Only Love by HezaChan
I have had many yards of this dark wine red vinyl laying around that I got from Joann's Halloween clearance. I pondered over which characters I could make with it and I-no stood out. I think the color is a little too dark, but in photos with direct sun it looks pretty close to the sprite artwork in the game. Since a lot of reference images of I-no differ from picture to picture (ie: in some she has a black border on the bottom of her dress, others don't -- some have more buckles on the hat, others don't) so I picked the parts that I liked from each reference and mixed them together. Not to mention, the hat design from Isuka was a lot easier since it only had one buckle instead of 3.

This is my first costume in which I didn't alter a commercial pattern. I made all the patterns myself, and even sculpted the rings and buckles myself out of sculpey. All the black belts and belt loops where tedious and time consuming. The dress was a bit of a difficult task in construction, but I'm happy with the overall look. The jacket is fully lined and has wire in the front seems attaching to the collar to help retain shape. The boots have the heels painted with acrylic paint, and clear coated on top. The boot covers are glued on with a strong epoxy.

I've been wanting to take new photos of my I-no for quite some time, and I finally got around to it this weekend! My friend Nick made a lovely guitar prop for me and I had it since the beginning of summer, but I never had the oppertunity to have photos taken with it. So this weekend my friend Claire and I set up my camera in the basement of the old duplex she's living in. I loved how haphazard the basement was with random wires, sawdust, and random cobwebs! The atmosphere was just perfect I thought. I brought my camera and tripod and set the white balance and shutter speed while Claire would push the shutter for me, and position shots. I give her full credit since she was the one who actually took the shot ^^

I love this work. What I like even more is how you explain the costume, the design and making of it, and how this photo came about. Good work.

it is cool that you don't censor the original outfit design like many cosplayers do (where a short top underneath the jacket)

That's great craftsman ship on your outfit. Artisans are sort of a rare breed anymore, it's nice to see work like this every now and again.

The guitar as well. :)

From what I understand the person who made it for me made it out of posterboard and foamboard primarily.
