Judgement Outfit - Plans by KratosAurionIV Judgement Outfit - Plans by KratosAurionIV

Okay, now that all the legal stuff is out of the way...

Here it is~!
The full Judgement outfit plan, as complex as it may be.
Sorry folks, the lack of colors probably makes it slightly more complex than it should be (even though it is still complex), but I'm sure you'll get the gist of it.

This was modeled using Kratos' original character poses and the whole outfit from in-game footage. Some guesswork and stuff, since they're different proportions (the game characters and the slightly-more-realistic figures), but this is just the way I see it working.

SO!

As I say on the left, I'll be wearing a form-fitting top and bottom, then get into the shell of a costume like that. I didn't want to have the obvious overlap in clothing there, but it's not too bad and I've kinda gotten the idea sunk into my head that "I'd like to have outfits that are more realistic, and that one can actually look like they can get in and out of."
I mean, both of Kratos' outfits, really, are one-piecers. There's no way he can slink in and out that well. But I digress...

There's a nice interweaving of belts going all around, and each one will be edged with white fabric. I'm going to get some fake leather to use, something that's obviously thicker than fabric so that there can be a depth difference between them and, say, the pants and sleeves.
There are several grommets all over the weave, and I'd like to think that they're buttons. But, for the sake of simplicity, only a few will be actual buttons, as illustrated. The rest will be ornamental.
All of the important belts come out of the plate in the back; it's what forms the two bands that button in the front as well as another which connects to the legs. Combine that with the straps which come from the back of the legs and I say it'd be interesting to see just how well it can all stand up without sewing.

It's interesting, really: there's a band of blue that runs up his leg, to the waist then splits, forming a band in the back and the front of the "jacket." Also, when looking at the front, the thick bands of material just before the arms wraps around to the back, underneath the large leather plate and sliver of fabric below it.

Lots of twisting and turning...

His gloves are slightly shorter on the fingers than his usual ones. That, and they don't have those gold-metal knuckles.
Also, as I stated on the sheet, he does not sport an Exsphere. It just magically appears during some cutscenes. How typical.

Uh... questions, comments, concerns?

Wow, that's pretty cool. Looks very complicated o_O I'm kinda interested in cosplay and would simply love to walk around in Kratos' Judgement outfit, but that looks so... intricate. I can barely sew... -_-

But that looks like a great plan. Do you have any pictures of you wearing it? I'd love to see that!

Unfortunately it didn't get quite done :( The leather ended up fitting just perfectly, but I didn't have anything to keep it in place so it shifted and came off around the shoulders. I do plan to have it ready for this year's convention, though, so check back in a few months!

Thanks; it was some real work to figure out the design, but once you get it and start putting it on to fabric it's a real achievement.

Well that's too bad that you ran into some difficulty. But you haven't given up. Good for you! :D
Yeah, I'm interested in seeing what the finished product looks like. I'll check back in a few months, if I remember. Maybe, if you remember, could you let me know when you finish it?

You bet, since you're so interested =p I'll write myself a note here...
I should hope to have it done before May, but that's considering I'm not in over my head this semester at school @_@ In any case, look forward to it!

And I know what you mean. I feel like I've been drowning in homework myself lately @_@

Impressive. I really hope it works out for you. I'm really exited to see the finished outfit. It seems like you have a pretty good idea of how to put it together, so. Best of luck! :glomp:

A thousand thanks! :highfive:

I do have a good idea of how it works, but I wonder just how well I can communicate it...

Well, in the end, it will be done, and it will be awesome!

I am very excited to witness the final product. I, too, plan to recreate the Judgment uniform for a convention later in the year. I hope we will be able to share some tips, hmm? xD

:thumbsup: Sure thing. If you stare at it for plenty of hours, it all makes a certain amount of sense :XD: But it's being able to put the ideas to practice that counts ._.;

Anyway... We'll see how it goes.
And thanks for the support!
