Apollo Justice: OBJECTION by Malindachan Apollo Justice: OBJECTION by Malindachan
Did a bit of an impromptu photoshoot with our friend George on Friday evening of Katsucon. Our Ace Attorney group was derptastic, so I am proud I managed to kinda keep a straight face long enough for this photo.

New costume means wall of construction info!

I'm sure you all wanna know about da wig. I got the Cady lace front in Spanish Brown from Arda Wigs with intentions to ventilate the hairline. But after previously ventilating a hairline on a Legolas wig, I had zero motivation and patience to do that again for a while, so I just did a glued hairline. I figured since the Phoenix Wright games are so stylized anyway I would be forgiven...? XD
The Cady alone isn't long enough in the front for his antenna; I first made small plush forms out of a brown soft felt, and I covered them with hair from extra wefts. Afterwords they were hot-glued to the front of the wig, and I then did the glued hairline. Some of the hair from the hairline goes right over the antenna to blend them. This is my more recent glued hairline tutorial that I did for work:…

I made the vest and slacks. I believe the red fabric was a sateen? I can't remember. but I found it with the bottomweights at JoAnn's. The black on the back of the vest was just a lining fabric. I used McCall's 2447 as the base pattern and altered it to have the lapels and an extra welt. I used Simplicity 2860 for the pants.

Got the shirt from H&M and the tie from Kohls!

My attorney badge was a lucky find when I was browsing the fashion district in New York City; I got it at a store that sold buttons. I just drew a tiny scale in the middle of it and sealed it with clear nail polish.

The bracelet is made out of craft foam, sealed with 2 layers of mod podge, and painted with acrylics. I made it fitted to my wrist, and it closes with velcro.

I'm so envious of your clean work with wigs - I loathe the wig-styling part of cosplay but I'd really like to be as good as you some day!
