|Back in 2010 Jenn/Solaria Cosplay asked me to do Blazblue Cosplay with her. So I picked Noel and started putting it together. I made all the accessories and then came to the dress and it all fell apart. It was a total mess and I had no idea how to approach the guns so I shelved the project and whipped up Litchi in record time.|
Since then I've leant out the accessories to BexiBeans and Koiice who each made their own dresses. BexiBeans and I put together some make shift foamboard guns in about 4 hours before she wore Noel as part of our Blazblue group at Play Expo in 2012.
Now, 4 years since I made the original parts for Noel I finally got round to finishing it. Not only did I manage the dress (which caused me no end of frustration while making it but like so many things was worth it in the end) but I also managed the guns. Something of which I'm far more proud.
4 layers of foamboard a-piece and smoothed out by conquering my fear of papier mache.
