This coming Acen I have planned to do Haseo's Xth form, for our groups .hack cosplay. Having a bit of a time figuring that out, and then I have come to the understanding that I now have to make my friends Hiiragi outfit as well.
Spectacular is what I wanted to say, but instead I said no problem, not even thinking about it. Looked him up, and my brain broke for maybe a couple of moments, just like when one first REALLY looks at ANY of Haseo's outfits.

I am hoping someone can help me with making of the skirt thing that Hiiragi wears. Even throwing me a pattern idea or a hint of the right direction would be splendid.
Hiiragi


Also, if you have any ideas for Haseo's back fan, that would be much appreciated as well.

Interesting, don't know if I would actually go with that since I am not at all experienced with that field of casting. Though I thank you very much for the idea. I will keep it in mind for either this project or later ones.

The "skirt" thing almost looks like a kimono thats partially hanging down... do you have any other pictures of the character? Also, the piece with the red designs hanging down looks to be a belt. I can see it on the waist.

The collar.... oh my, I thought it was just around his neck, but now I realize it wraps around his back.... crazy! Um... you could bend pvc pipe, I dont know how much bend you'll get though (that's a pretty curvy piece). You could also try pool noodles or the foam pipe insulation stuff (Home Depot, Lowes....) Just dont get something too big... the smaller the diameter, the easier it is to bend.

you can bend pvc pipe like that
pack it with fine sand and seal the ends
then heat and bend
(practice may be needed)

To RIkku-
Here are some other pictures. They were screen captures though, so the quality isn't as good.
Front View
Side View
Back View

Kimono cut does sound promising, let me know what you make of the back. Toying with the thought of breaking up the skirt so that it is in more than one piece (other than the tie/ribbon) so that constructing it isn't as big of an ordeal as it might turn out to be if I did it as one piece.

Yeah, that back part threw me for a loop when I started looking at in the way of constructing it. PVC sounds like it would be the sturdier choice out of them, though the foam piping sounds interesting as well.

To Millions_Knives-
For heating the PVC what would you suggest?
Practice would most definitely be needed and probably trial and error especially with me.

A heat gun, and something to curve the pvc around so you get a uniform shape. Dont forget some heavy duty gloves, something that's good for the heat.

Yeah, that back side confuses me a bit.... the pieces look like the sleeves...

ok, I found a cosplayer who did a pretty good job with the same costume. In a way it does look like the sleeves and they are placed in a certain way. At least thats what I think.

Take a look.

Thank you Millions_Knives. That smoothly cleared any of my remaining questions on the forming of the back fan. You've been a great help!

R1KKu- Hmm, that would be an interesting way to do it. Make something like a shortened kimono, fold down and wrap with the sleeves...I will have to check into that. That cosplayer did indeed do an awesome job on the cosplay. Thank you for giving the link, it will at least give better reference pictures and an idea on how they did it.

Thank you to you both for your help on this!

Sure!!

When I get stuck on a cosplay and have no clue how to do something,
I sometimes refer to other cosplayers to see how they interpreted a piece.
