|This costume is going to kill me :)... it will have everything from chainmail to craft foam. i plan on doing the gold armour segments with pepakura then fiberglassed with cotton rather than glass matt. im going to have some trouble with the "wings" i have a vague idea on how ill do them. but of it dosnt work ill be going without them.|
Studying... (Posted 21st June 2010)
Ok so iv spent a day now studying this blueprint of Tyrael, collour coding sections to help me understand how ill construct peices and put them together etc. hopefully by doing this my costume should be fairly practical to wear. this costume is going to be one hell of a task, this summer is gona ROCK! xD
As epic as this picture is it dosnt really have details about the back of the armour... im going to have to do allot of drawing myself to get this costume right.. I will be designing a custom undersuit that will be constructed from leather / chainmail (not too great on comfort...)
*sigh* (Posted 6th June 2010)
so... im having some second thaughts on this costume again -_- im feeling like 6 months is not going to be nearly enough time for me to master this peice properly. the basics list for this costume is killing me.. then there are thousands of minor tasks and new skills to learn for this to work.
SO! im going to note down EVERYTHING i need to do for this costume and put it on a gaant chart or something. i really hope i can get this costume together for october. if not ill have to reconsider something a little easyer.
