The costume itself for this outfit was all bought and modified, the wig and prop were where the real work was put in. I wanted a pretty specific color for her wig, so I had to sharpie dye orange over a brown wig. The shuriken has a wood base with insulation foam carved into shape, and model magic used to fill in the foam when i messed up (this was not a good plan in the long run). The center spine on each blade is a dowel glued into place, and the whole thing was covered in polyester resin. In hindsight the polyester resin with no fiberglass was not enough to hold this shape in place and flexing eventually caused cracks. Center setion is strips of eva foam glued into pvc pipes.
