Cosplayer Imari Yumiki > Costume of Taiga Kagami from Kuroko's Basketball
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Uniform top is all handmade from scratch. It's pretty easy overall. Ring was also handmade from layering silver metallic tape over a plastic shaped ring I cut out.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Taiga Kagami is one of my most favorites of Kuroko no Basket. I love manly characters especially ones have a softer side to them inside. So I couldn't resist after catching up to the series to cosplay versions of his outfits.
- Styling Notes
- Hahaha.... Why didn't I buy a prestyled wig? I wanted to show my love for Kagami by custom making the wig myself. First off I took a unstyled base red wig, handsewing every black weft on the base wig. With that taking an hour or so, I dyed the front bangs for a browner/blackish tint like he has. After having that dried, I had to go through the wig and cut/style to his short hair style he has. A lot of hairspray, comb and scissors. It took 3 times spray and dry to have it keep in place. It was a long process but I enjoyed what the turn out was, for next time I probably need to touch up a bit more on the dye and maybe trim up more for the back, it's a super thick wig after all the added wefts.
