No Face, part 1

July 28th, 2014

I finished No Face a couple months ago… but I’m just now getting around to writing about it XD;; This will be in a couple parts since I have many photos. Making the base for the mask took the longest!

My friend Jack would be wearing No Face, and I wanted to make sure the costume was taller than his actual height. I decided that the part that looks like a mouth on No Face’s mask would be where Jack’s eyes were.

See how much taller he is! Photo by Ed Martinez

Spirited Away photoshoot

We got our photos back from our photoshoot with Ed at A-kon! I love how they came out :D

Here are a few more favorites:

Check out the full gallery on my Haku page! I also filled in more info on the costume and moved it from the “In Progress” section to the “Completed” section.

I took several in progress photos while I was making No Face, so I’ll have an entry about that soon :)

Two down, one to go

Chihiro is finished now, which means I have two completed Spirited Away costumes!

Well, Haku’s wig is still a bit long, but I’m scared of cutting it. It’s so straight and even right now. What if I mess it up??! I haven’t decided whether to give it a trim or just leave it as is.

In my last entry, I finished Chihiro’s pants. Now I have her top finished too. I don’t really have much to say about its construction because I really just used my Haku pattern (top, undershirt) but with a few adjustments.

And so, Haku is for me. Chihiro is for Jessie. I now have a month left to make a No Face costume for Jack before A-kon. I hope I can make it in time!
