Costume Information

At the moment i am just grabing things that will work for him. i am determined to completely make his outfit myself the only things i think i will have to buy for him is the boots and the belts. i'm already looking around for patterns to make his sweater. i'll also have ago at making the Buster Sword too with any luck :D

I can probably help you with the sword. You know making it from insulation foam might be worth a look. You know the stuff I made my sitar from? As its thicker and lighter than wood would be, and if we seal it in vinyl ripple, its good to go. :3

You can buy it at B&Q, its in the timber section, its about £25 for four big sheets. I estimate you'd need about one and a quarter for the blade length? Depends on how to scale you want it.

For SOLDIER pauldrons, buy a couple of those £1 police helmets from a costume shop or wherever, and take a hacksaw to them, they're perfect.

I hope all goes well =D

Getting the Material (Posted 12th December 2009)

Thanks to Member-XI for showing me a tutorial she found on how to make the armour i can't wait to start making them. ^^

Getting stuff now :D (Posted 4th July 2009)

Well now i have near enough finished my other cosplay i thought it would be good to start getting things sorted for Zack.

i was looking all over for a pattern to make his sweater then i was able to find one YAY :D

So the next step is to find the wool to make it and i have a rough idea where i can get it from ^^
