|Cost :||£60, most of which was footwear....but aren't they just yummy?|
|Time Taken :||3 weeks|
|So, I was going to make the boots, but I treated myself instead. Oops|
The head piece , breast plate and arm bands are made by my lovely Boyfriend with thermo plastic, shaped and painted. That took a while to get used to :)
The corset is also home made, my first attempt. I'm really please with it and the next one I make will be even better.
It won't win any prizes, but it was great fun wearing it, probably the "bravest" costume I'll ever do! It'll get a makeover and come out to play again :)
Updated for spring memorabilia.
New Belt and pants. This is more in the spirit of Alex Ross's WW than the cartoon, so O changed the icon to reflect that.
The corset has been retouched and an open ended zip has replaced the hooks & eyes. Much more comfy :p
Pants! (Posted 28th March 2011)
I'm really pleased with my new pants! The fabric is spot on, it was a bit more pricey than I would have liked to pay, but hey!

First time trying Foamlux, interesting product, a lot of potential. Needs Painting, obviously :)

the first layer of the corset, modified. This will hold the boning and will be covered with red.
Lycra...grr (Posted 8th November 2010)
So, after many attempts and much unpicking I got to this...:p I'm actually quite pleased with this :)
Lycra...grrr (Posted 27th September 2010)
Minor issues with the pants...Lycra not behaving itself! Such a difficult material to use!

Red and blue primary colours have been bought...The lasso was in Dunhelm all this time ( who knew)
