You should be excited~!

About the beard;
I've never seen results of your method, have seen bad results with crepewool and ok ones with painted on beards (as he has little to no beard, I guess) unless it's the Brotherhood version of course. It's why me and my Leonardo decided on using make-up/facepaint, instead of hairy versions.

The only pre-made beard that might work (so far I could find) is this one http://www.maskworld.com/english/department/larp/beards-wigs--D-190/--D-... with a little styling...
Perhaps you didn't need any opinions or help, but I figured I'd comment anyway! XD GOoooood luck!

Journal

beard.... (Posted 23rd April 2011)

So I look more like this guy at the moment. Road to El Dorado... possible cosplay...? xD
As soon as I find a wig (I'm way too fussy with them), hopefully I'll start looking more like Leo!

Leonardo... (Posted 16th November 2010)

So today I'm swapping Leonardo from 'planned' to 'in progress' 8D He's being made for the London Expo May 2011.
I already have a hat like Leonardo's, so I may just use that instead of making one, I'm not sure yet. I'll have to make sure it matches the fabric I choose for the cape.
Also I'm a little puzzled how to do a convincing beard >_< I've heard to use clippings from the wig and stick them with liquid latex, so I'll try that first...
I also just ordered some dark grey fabric and some white lace for around the collar ^_^
So excited!
