Hi! I saw your great Lord lucina and I just wanted to say I love it! I’m actually doing Brave Princess Lucina for Fanime this year. I just have a quick question. I have been asking a bunch of cosplay blogs, but no answer. So my question is, how did you attach your cape to the cosplay??? I’m having a hard time figuring it out since it is my first cosplay with a cape! Please and thank you. Have fun at Kastu!

Thank you so much!  I would have loved to have done the Brave Lucina, but her design came out after I made this version haha

My cape has two pieces of fabric attached to the top part of the cap, acting as little holes to put my arms through.  Here’s some pictures so you can see:

The bands are the same color as the the fabric of the cape and the tunic, and they were covered by the pauldrons I made, so it blended in pretty well.  It has stayed on for the whole convention day, so I would say it’s a good method to try!  It’ll depend on exactly how you make your armor for your upper body, but I think this could work since Brave Luci’s armor is similar to Awakening’s Great Lord.

I think I might sew in some snaps to directly attach it to the tunic just to give a little extra support, but it’s worked pretty well 🙂 

Let me know if you have any other questions.  I would love to see your progress/finished cosplay too!
