Costume Information

Description
I have chosen to make Vexen for a Alton Towers event I noticed in the forums, I had previously planned to do him for Oct 2010 but I have chosen to do other cosplays instead.

The hardest part is scaling that shield against his body, then scaling the tips to the weapon. The converting this to my body sizes.

The rest was very easy to make a plan for. The zip is available online, expensive but the correct gauge none the less.

I can't wait to design that weapon and may make a couple of his other weapon variations if i can find sources for reference ^^ IT IS SO EPIC :D :D

.. im over it haha... I shall start his asap, probably order the material at same time I do for Genesis.

Gah! He's so effing annoying in the game (though not as bad as Axel or Marluxia grrrrr) Good luck with this. The shield will be awesome!

Also thanks for all the advice! ^_^

Shield: -

Scaled the different parts of the shield to each other.

After scaling the character to his weapon, i have concluded that the overall length will be 1.07m to be proportionate to me.

Using the scales from before i created a picture with relevant dimensions on it.

The shield will be made from a wire structure that i will either papermache then foam and latex, or just apply foam straight onto the wire frame. I think applying the mache will give added structure and support to the foam.

The colour scheme for frozen pride is ice blue with darker , navy blue. The trim is obviously chrome silver.

Costume:-

The coat will be made from leatherette and lined with a typical fabric liner.

The zipper is #30 gauge and i have found it available in America, i will order this in.

As for the tassel parts i will make these from silver trim.

Under garments are not fully visible but i can make out gloves on the hands, leatherette will be used to make these, boots, buyable then modify , and the trousers i presume would be leather too so leatherette will again be used and lined with a cloth for comfort.

His wig will be stylable from a good quality long dark blonde style.

Will possibly buy green contacts for this character.
