Cosplay Wednesday – Ni no Kuni’s Oliver

Ni no Kuni Oliver Cosplay - Gamers Heroes
After the release of the original title in 2010, Bandai Namco and Level-5’s Ni no Kuni series is coming back. In honor of this upcoming release, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of the original hero Oliver.

Canadian cosplayer Iridescent-Fall showed this cosplay off during Otakon 2013. Everything (including the Mite plush) was made from scratch – they cast the green and blue gems out of resin for the cape brooch and wand. The wand is a dowel, made of craft foam layers glued together, carved down, and covered in wonderflex. Credit goes to RocknamLee for the photos.
