Magus cosplay
« on: February 04, 2018, 04:19:58 pm »
What I've been up to for the past several months was an attempt at cosplaying Magus Zeal. I'd been doing this wiht Legend of Zelda for years, in the form of NES era Link, but I really always identified with Magus so I wanted to give that a shot.



after getting the general materials needed, one of the first things I wanted to begin building was the amulet, Magus's memento of Schala. The plan was to cut sheet metal and bend it a bit, but I ran into a lot of trouble deburring the edges and decided that duct tape gave it a nice sort of trim.

I didn't add much to it until later on, because I didn't wanna end up procrastinating any further :P  So I began constructing the Raven armor and Raven codpiece.



cardboard makes up the core body of both, along with multiple layers of duct tape and a leather fabric "skin".





I used some duct tape to create beltloops, so I could keep everything fastened in place. After this, I just found a good pair of jeans and dyed them purple, simple as that. It's nice to have pockets when you're wearing this. :P 

The scary part which tripped me up for awhile was the widow's peak. I already went through one wig trying to add this in, and it didn't go so well. this time, I at least had something to work with on the wig itself, and the results were not disappointing (though I think it could still use some adjusting - basically, cutting a piece of cloth and gluing it on underneath the bangs, before doing some more gluing and cutting. A little spirit gum to the forehead, and some to the sideburns to cover up that odd contrast in hair color, aaannddd...



...I'm ready to go around pining for my sister!   :lol:

gloves and boots were very little trouble, since they could simply be ordered. Rather than go too fancy on those boots though, I just used more duct tape. Good enough for me.

I was at Wizard World STL yesterday with this, and had a great time. I also added a ring of reflective silver duct tape to my thigh opposite the amulet, just for that metal brace he wears in artwork. I don't really have picture of it though:x



Well anyways, that's all I have to share on it for now. :) I'll update you on anything interesting.

Thanks, guys. It looks like its first run was pretty successful! Too bad I didn't see any other CT cosplayers though XD

especially Schala...    :(

I thought that building looked vaguely familiar.

I got a few people asking if I was Magus or "Magnus from Chrono Trigger", and one artist booth there became a big fan of me it seems XD
