VIII by Faxen VIII by Faxen
Here was my thursday cosplay for Anime Boston! I had some troubles with the wig, the base wigs I used were very thin and starchy so even when I sewed two of them together, used high grade styling products and gravity styled it I still lhad problems with droopy spikes. However I got new base wigs online a week ago and so when I do this cosplay again for Otakon I'll have a better wig! I really like the way I did the hairline though :) The chakrams took me FOREVER to make lol but I think they look really nice :) They're light and strong too. Unfortunatly I couldn't find my friend who was gonna be my roxas that day so no pics of that yet, but :iconelaroh: is gonna be my roxas for Otakon <3 I can't wait!
Wig and Chakrams by me
Coat bought online and altered by me
