|Undead Pirates FTW!!!|
I love the SC games, especially the character designs and Cervantes is not only cool but has a really striking detail filled design.
I also get to make two desticntly different swords, one mechanical and one organic which I'm really looking forward to. Good practice for making a full Soul Edge!
Aha me jimlads! I have bought lots of extreamly purple fabric, so Cervantes is now underway
Tasks:- Boots, Hat, Jacket, Armour, Trousers, Pistol Sword & Female Souledge
I've started making the swords, simple foam sheet and plastic tube core construction but it's going to get interesting with the addition of the pistol hilt and the organic/fleshy look of souledge!
My Pirate boots have arrived, which are cool and err piratey :D
The swords are almost done now. Nirvanas pistol has been made with Foamboard and Soul Edges organicy bits have been built up witha combination of paper mache, craft foam and sealant for the veins. Now it's time for some latex and paint.
Armour, Belt Buckle and swords are all latexed and ready to be painted
Running out of time now but my swords are fully painted, as is my armour. Started making his giant purple hat of doom using felt and material, just the gold triim and details to go on that now.
His trousers are also over half sewn, man thats a long job >_<
I have a hat, with feathers in it. On to the next job >_<
Gloves, Boots ad Epulets all finished. Base of the coat made, now it just needs edging (about 8 meters worth) and vast amounts of gold detailing painted on.
Well I had to get him 95% finished a week early but I've now finished off the final bits of fabric painting and he's ready to go plundering!!
Update Aug 09
Reworn at Aya 09, in fact the first time he's really been properly worn at a con.
Dissapointed that I managed to reglue his boot trim all wrong and forgot to tuck my hair into his hat properly so it's a little spoiled. will have to sort out a salty seadog photoshoot!
