Inuyasha was the first anime series I’ve ever watched and I think I’m always going to enjoy it! Since I was still not very experienced with sewing and I love the outfit, I thought Sango’s battle uniform was something I could pull off. Plus I thought it would be fun to look bad ass by having the giant Hirakotsu and looking like a Ninja! 😉 I read in a few forums on cosplay.com about how to make the Hirakotsu and choose the way I thought was best to make it. Apparently there are many methods. Foam was the way I wanted to go since I wanted it to be light to carry and I thought I could make it sturdy by coating it with various chemicals. Lol. Yes, another first! Working with foam, glue, spray paint, bondo, sintra etc. Geez, this crap is dangerous! Lol. I think it all turned out pretty good and I am still working to improve the Hirakotsu. It is a bit fragile and some of the glue came undone right as we were leaving DragonCon.
