|Time Taken :||2 weeks (excluding Gae Bolg)|
|Dave's outfit has been something I've been wanting to make ever since his first appearance in the game. It was a last-minute decision to go to Aya Revolution, though, which meant I only had two weeks to make the costume. XD (I can't hardly believe it myself!)|
The Gae Bolg will come eventually (*cough*sorry*cough*) and maybe the Frostblade too. And then I'll make a mini Torgal plush to carry around and and and...
Update: Gae Bolg done, bits of costume tided up, went to London Expo Oct 09. Had a great time! More gamers at the Expo than at Aya, so more people recognised the costume too, which was lovely. Ahhhh I love Dave. XD
Grand Cosplay Ball 2010 (Posted 16th November 2010)
I decided to pull Dave out for the ball!
The brown vest has been remade so that it's more comfortable (the old one is quite restricting and also totally non-breathable), and the chest armour underneath the vest was also redone. Fixed various issues, and Storme commissioned someone to knit the gloves for me (the current ones are altered from ribbed socks and are rather uncomfortable around the fingers). Although those most likely won't arrive in time, I think I will wear Dave many more times in the future so the gloves are worth having. :)
And this time I will be accessorised with a proper Rush! See Storme's Rush here: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/30606
Getting there? (Posted 13th September 2009)
75% done, and this is what it looks like so far. The interlocking bits on the barrels are currently drying on my dining table, waiting to be glued on. They turned out to be the most difficult part to do. Because of their interlocking-ness, and the fact that the Gae Bolg's barrel is not entirely straight (lol) but rather made up of a series of smaller barrels, some of which have slanted sides, those bits are all weird shapes rather than rectangular. The angles of them have to fit the Gae Bolg's main barrel exactly, and fit each other as well. orz Hopefully it'll all work out when I glue them on.
So, that blob at the top. What should I make it out of? A shower head? XD
Gae Bolg, I call upon thee... (Posted 20th August 2009)
...and I hate thee. D<
The basic barrel is almost done. All the cylinders are piled up like a Gae Bolg Totem Pole. XD Currently wondering how to do that weird blob thing. Maybe carve it out of foam block, since I need to get foam for the handle anyway?
Aya Revolution 09 (Posted 17th August 2009)
First time wearing this! Things mostly went well, nothing fell off that couldn't be fixed. XD I've noticed things that could be improved and will definitely make those changes before I next wear it... maybe London Expo in October? Not sure yet. I'm hoping to find other Last Remnant cosplayers, so whenever anyone else also has a costume ready...
