well its ventus... in armour

Spent so long on this armour, and its still not finished, but had a lot of fun wearing them, maybe one day ill be happy with it. so many unfinished aspects, but people seem to enjoy them, so thats good enough for now.

This looks like it’s going to be an interesting cosplay. You have done a brilliant job with the helmet. I can wait to see it once its finished bet it will look awesome.

In response to your comment on my Roxas wig,
Thanks so much 8D
There isn't really anything I can say except just 'go for it'. Go from what you see. Gte good, allround ref picture and just style what you see. Hairspray, low temp hairdryer, then fix the ends together with glue (only if your sure that the spike is right though) otherwise just leave it, but the tips might split if not careful.

Mate, I'm not the only one going mad with the details and the materials.
But I notice that I'm the only one that is not starting from the helmet.
Good luck with your project.
Hope to see your Ven somewhere:that will be awesome!!!

woops (Posted 20th April 2010)

This week I'ave been mostly doing a poo.

headache (Posted 21st January 2010)

been working on the ear bits on the helmet, are an absolute pain to shape up to the helmet, and thne to make another that mirrors the other aswell as fits on the helmet in proportion -.-. and have just meshed them. I also trimmed some formt he front top of the helmet as it was a bit too long, and also along the top, and its now a more precise shape.

3 hours later (Posted 19th January 2010)

more progress done, been powering down and its coming together dispite some probably paranoid doubts

It begins (Posted 19th January 2010)

Have started work on ventus, and have started with the helmet. I slowly made a frame with wire and got some chicken wire, and started piecing it together, making a base layer to build on. quite pleased with how its coming along
