I made Rathalos and Rathian kigurumis for my husband and I to wear at PAX East this year! I love making custom kigus. They take a long time and can be very involved. But they’re fun to make and to wear! It took me a little more than three weeks to make both of these kigus.
I’m really happy with how they turned out, especially the Rathalos head. I cut out dozens of little spikes for it using my cutting machine, which was fun (but then I had to sew them all together…!). I would love to do a post on tips and tricks for making custom kigus sometime in the near future.
Here are some photos of the backs (before they were finished, since I didn’t get any photos from the back at the convention…):
Now it’s nose to the grindstone on this full MonHun cosplay for a photoshoot on April 21. I hope I can get it done!!! Be sure to follow my progress on my instagram!
