Kurai by genkimami Kurai by genkimami
During Otakuthon in Montreal, I finally had a chance to have a proper photo session for my Kurai cosplay that I had made earlier in 2011. I couldn't be happier about the pictures!

You can see a tutorial explaining how these wings were made here: www.teamblasecosplay.com/tutor…

I need to update my account. >_<

acetate sheet, foam board,floated glass paint and black acrylic paint. The hardest part was the floating technique of the glass paint to get the gradients.

Comme Manouk, j'ai remarqué comment les verres de contact sont parfaitement agencés à la couleur des ailes, c'est incroyable!! :wow: Est-ce que les yeux ont été retouchés, ou pas du tout? Sinon, je veux connaître le secret de ces lentilles!!!

Couleurs et composition sont splendide, et le travail de fabrication sur les ailes a l'air teeeeellement bien fait... en tous cas le résultat final est impressionnant! :D

Merci beaucoup! La couleur des yeux a été retouchée par le photographe pour ressembler à celle des ailes. Au départ ils étaient plus gris comme sur cette photo : [link] J'adore ces verres de contact, ils sont super opaques, mais tout de même naturels (Dolly Eye grey).

Ce sont les Puffy 3tones (en bleu) que j'ai achetées en fait! (mais sur le site de Dolly Eye, d'ou la confusion).

Always nice to see good Angel Sanctuary cosplay ♥ you're the first good Kurai I've seen (I'm really picky OTL), and I love the over-sharpness of the pic and the colours, just the way I like them.

I'll be cosplaying the same costume this weekend xD I'm having a hard time with the wings x_x How did you make yours?
Reply
:icongenkimami:
genkimami Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011
Thank you! I didn't make the wings, but I know they are made of 2 sheets of foam core with acetate sandwiched between the sheets for the translucent parts. The acetate was painted with glass paint. I hope that helps!

:iconalice-heroic-idiot:
Alice-Heroic-Idiot Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I see. I'm doing mine just with acetate and black hot glue, so they are not very stiff. The foam core was a good idea, I never thought about that! But I'm doing mine in a diferent way so I don't think I can use it ;_; but I'll think about it ;)
Thanks a lot for answering :D
