Nearing completion! (Posted 23rd October 2010)
Well, it's been a long, ill ridden, ride but the costume is nearing completion now, and should be done before I leave on friday. At this present time though I'm beginning to debate weather or not I should go as 1337 or not. Reason being that despite it not being perfect, it still loks damn well good enough to cosplay the Chief and still not wory about it's slight in-accuracies and cheap appearence. On top of which I dunno if I'm gonna have time to make an assault rifal or not... I need a weapon!
We're Back! (Posted 16th October 2010)
It's been a long time coming, but despite being ill and what not I am finally getting on with this damn thing. The helmet is just about finished now and just requires painting and adding the padding. Decided to black line panel everything to give it a more anime look. Should be good.
Costume Delayed (Posted 27th May 2010)
It is with a very heavy and tired heart right now that I declare this costume on hold and not appearing at this may's mcm expo. This is largely due to the stupid dickwads on ebay who should have sent me vital parts needed, but instead went on holiday and left me waiting.
1337 Progress Report - Day 2 (Posted 17th May 2010)
Well, despite the few hours I've been able to work on this armor, I've managed to finish the base build for the front torso, now moving onto the back torso which is made up of large A4 pieces which should take much less time than the front to assemble.
Still not sure weather to just go with the realistic/natural paint job, or weather I should outline all the panels and go with the full anime look.
