Time Taken : 1 year with two weeks before finishing being non-stop work on it

This is my birthday present for my sister ^^

I was origionally hoping to get this cosplay finished for the London MCM October Expo 2010, along with my rthas Menethil cosplay, so they could be viewd side by side, however due to me underestimating this cosplay that hasn't been possible giving the time constraint.

This is the first cosplay I've done with this style of armor, and am finding it incredibly challenging and difficult tryng to figure out how to acctually realise parts of the costume. I am learning many new techniques during the course of construction, which has drastically slowed down the progress.

I hope that with the skills I have learnt making this costume will become increasingly useful as I try to increase the difficulty of the cosplays I produce. However, unfortunatly I am not satisfied with this cosplay, with there being several huge mistakes on the design, which were simply caused by my rushing.


Its looking great so far!!! :)
I love the way you have used the black paint underneath to make the armor look worn. A lot of people don't bother and it looks so much better when you do!
Can't wait to see the finished outfit

This costume made my jaw hit the keyboard. AMAZING! Frostmourne looks pure evil and the rest of the armour is looking brilliant so far. Keep up the great work ^_^
