Cosplay Flashback - Kagato

My first foray into anime cosplay was a costume for Kagato from the original Tenchi Muyo OAV.

These are my favorite pics of that costume

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that one of the items I created for the costume was a small jewelry piece that fitted on his neck. I sculpted the original out of Sculpty clay, and it turned out pretty well. However, after more than seven years, it broke after I wore it at Blizcon 2011. (I added elf ears and pretended it was a high elf costume)

Instead of doing a resculpt, I decided to reassemble the piece as best I could and cast a replacement in plastic. Here are the results.

A little paint and the replacement will be ready to wear... perhaps for Anime Expo 2012?
