Dragon-Half by WindoftheStars Dragon-Half by WindoftheStars
My boyfriend had shown me Dragon Half and I instantly fell in love with Mink. She is cute, spunky, and strong just the type of character I love! Since they made only two episodes I went and found the manga and read that too and just feel in love with her more.

I was very hesitant to do this costume at first because of the amount of skin showing. Then I remembered that I cosplay because I love the series and character and because I want to do it and for no other reason. To make sure I felt comfortable while wearing it I started working out and stuff.

The costume itself wasn't too hard to make. The wings a tail were the harder parts to figure out to make, but the challenge was... interesting. I have to say when you wear a skimpy costume it makes it harder to figure out attach stuff! lol All the armor pieces are made of foam, but I need to re-make the leg armor once again. Third times the charm yes? The bottoms, top and arm warmers are made out of lycra and I use a swim suit as the pattern for both parts. The front medallion was made of sculpty and I casted the gem on top. The horns are made out of wood and foam and then attached to the wig. The wig is a Punky XL from Cosworx style by myself.

Costume and modeled by myself

Wow, that's something you don't see every day. It's always nice to see some old school anime cosplay.
simultaneously bizarre (yay Japan), adorable, and way hot. @_@.

oh that is awesome! but i wonder if there's anything other than foam that could have been done for the tail? i wonder what other material could be used for props and such. i'd like to go and make something that looks effectively real.
