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!

You always seem to cosplay some of my favourite fandoms. xD
When I've seen the wig on tumblr I was like 'Holy shit, this is the best wig ever!'.
You look awesome as Apollo. ^^

Ahh, such an awesome cosplay! You did a great job making his antennae look almost like a casual, "yea, I slick back my fine 'do like this erry day" sort of thing, haha. And your vest and badge also look so legit; I'm really impressed.

I love your walls of construction info, btw! ;ゥ; ♥

Amazing! You're wig is just brilliant! :D

PFFFFT! That hairdo looks ridiculous in real life! XD
Sir-Herp Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014  Student General Artist
...I could have sworn that hair style looked ridiculous in the first place. xD
turpinator77 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I totally agree, but some hairstyles (like Clouds) I can oddly see in real life alot more plausably.

Oh my god, yes. xD

Cool! I like your Apollo! : D
TeenDarkMagician Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
So Awesome.
I'm wondering though... Are you going to do the "Pirate," version of him?(The newest ace attorney version of him, covered in bandages and everything)
Malindachan Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I considered it but didn't have enough time to make the jacket before Katsucon. Maybe someday! XD I wanna do an Ema Skye cosplay too, so I might prioritize her first.
