Both the shirt and the skirt are made of charcoal grey stretch denim, while the shirt is also lined in black rayon fabric. Necktie is silver faux-silk, while details on the collar are ivory ribbon and satin. There is also a small breast pocket. The shirt and skirt are both artfully ripped and burned. The Hekisoujo (azure jewel) is a purchased glass marble attached to a bail made of Wonderflex.
The sword Suiguutou is made on a base of plywood; cut with a saber saw, shaped with a belt sander, and the fuller carved out with a Dremel tool. This was my first time carving a fuller, and while I know I could stand some more practice with the Dremel (or the router, which would have been a better tool but which I do not know how to use effectively yet), I’m reasonably pleased with how it came out. The raised detailing on the guard is foam, carved with a woodburning tool, and paperclay, painted with metallic spraypaint and a mix of glossy and metallic enamel paint. The grip is wrapped with deep burgundy duckcloth, and the ring at the pommel is embellished with a dark red tassel.
