Wow all these costumes are great. TheFontBandit, that is such a cool idea getting your swords to stick to your back with magnets! The swords also look really great. I'm afraid I haven't seen Fushigi Yugi/Scrapped Princess or played Dragon Age, but from your reference pictures everything looks really spot on. XD
I guess my favorite cosplay would have to be Vanitas from KH: Birth By Sleep.
I guess the hardest thing was the muscles, I had never done anything like it before (it was even my first time sewing with stretchy fabric) but I'm so happy with the way that it turned out. My weapon is a bit of a mess and there are definitely somethings I would like to do over with WonderFlex do you guys have any tips or tutorials saved that you found useful?
That's wonderful! The muscles look great - I wouldn't even have known where to start with those! The keyblade(s) actually look really good in the photo, but I think Wonderflex on top would work well too, especially to make it more durable. I'd swear I've seen a tutorial using insulation foam and Wonderflex, but I'll look around to see if I can find it again (I might just be imagining things again).
I did mold Wonderflex straight onto Gatorboard (a tougher, more durable version of foamcore) without any trouble, for my Isabela swords.
