Both of my kids are avid manga and anime fans.  One of their favorite authors is Rumiko Takahashi, who created the InuYasha series as well as Ranma 1/2.  Both of the kids chose characters from Rumiko Takahashi's work for Halloween this year and I had loads of fun turning them in to their favorite characters!




Reference Photos for InuYasha
InuYasha is the title character from InuYasha

My 13 year old daughter was InuYasha!  I created the top half of the costume based on a kimono I made some years ago. There are a number of custom changes to make the top appear the same as InuYashas, including a faux second layer underneath in white.   The pants are adapted from a pj pattern, with a more flared leg and belt.  The wig was purchased, with handcrafted ears added (made from faux fur and felt).  The sword and necklace were purchased online (I wanted to make the necklace, but she really, really wanted the authentic version from Japan!).  I made the scabbard by covering a toy sword scabbard with black fabric made into a sleeve which was glued to the inside top.   The entire costume is made with quilters cotton.






Reference Photos for Ryoga
Ryoga is from Ranma 1/2


Ryoga!  The top is a reconstructed sweatshirt with a custom collar and cuffs made from cotton fabric.  The belt is also cotton fabric.  The pants are adapted from a pajama pattern, with loops added to the sides for lacing the legs.  The cording on the pants is clothesline cord.   His headband is made from a strip of darker yellow fabric with squares stenciled on in black paint.  The rucksack is completely custom from canvas, with a drawstring, pocket and ties for the umbrella.  The red paper umbrella was purchased online and customized with paint and fabric. 







I hope you like them!
