Gildarts Clive - Feel my power! by Elffi Gildarts Clive - Feel my power! by Elffi
Heya!

Here is a new photo of my Gildarts Clive Cosplay from Fairy Tail :)

Hope you enjoy it! This is the first photo without the cape ^^
I've been training a lot to get more muscles, lol. I think training took like 4/5 of the time compared to costume making.

Cosplayer: :iconelffi:
Photographer: :iconcalssara:
Location: Bucharest, Romania

Enjoy! <3

Please don't hesitate to ask about the costume!
Everything done my me.

I'm looking through your cosplay pictures and seeing you wearing these wigs that appear like they're attached to your scalp seamlessly, like where the hair is pulled back on your head. A friend of mine is trying to cosplay as a character with their hair pulled back and any wigs we've found showed the net underneath.
Do you have any tips for how to make it look natural like in this picture??

These wigs are called front lace wigs. Try googling that. It means that the net is transparent, very thin material and every string of hair is sewed on separately by hand.
The same kind of wigs are also used in movie industry and of course they are a bit more expensive. Also, I don't have any own hair so it's very easy to make my hairline look natural because I don't have to hide my own natural hair in any way.

Thank you so much for the information! It sounds very complicated and I did google it as you suggested. Every single hair sewn on individually? That must be really really time consuming for whoever does that.
So then, are they made from synthetic hair still, or is it real human hair?

Wow! O_o I bet it's hard to find one that's about a meter in length then. That's what my friend needs ^^
Thank you for answering my comment! I feel special because you're a great inspiration to me :)

The price for something like that would be over 1000 USD :)

Heya and thanks a lot! I always show all my secrets.
I have made bunch of tutorials with photos from all of my cosplays.
You can check 'em here, "see all folders" and every folder is a different tutorial: [link]

Here is a quick tutorial for the Gildart's gauntlet: [link]

Hope this helps! :)

The picture is amazing, Calssara is awesome at taking epic photos. And I have to admit, that although I don't know the character itself, the cosplay looks amazing and very... natural, if that makes sense. What I mean is, it doesn't look like actual cosplay, but more like a living person. And I think that's amazing. I love your cosplays, and especially your armor-making skills. They all look great. Congrats
