Gender Confused Cloud
|Well, the second I saw this a few months back, I HAD to do it. For now, this ref shot is all I have, but at an estimated cost of 400 quid to make out of fibreglass and top quality products, I am pouring my heart into this. I decided to make this in honour of the memory of my nan who died in March of cancer. It'll be fucking amazing when it's finished because I'd never live with myself if I let my nan down.|
News on this since above post...
I decided to upload the last remaining shots I could find of me working it. Sadly, since all this took place, despite the basic frame being finished, I've lost a LOT of weight and with the nature of the armour, it will not fit me. Whilst I MIGHT consider selling it on to someone who can fit into it and use it as their own, I'm not ready to part with it just yet. Frankly, I'm sad there's not more shorts of me working on it, because I had also done the shoulder pauldrons of which there's no evidence in these photos of production.
I will not be working on this any longer. I made my nan proud by simply TRYING to do something well beyond my capability. I learned a lot of new things and I'll take that away with me from all this. Most of all, I learned something important from this project; Cosplay shouldn't be SRS BIZNESSS. I learned that I enjoy cosplay without going crazy and making ridiculously huge costumes. It was a revelation.
So many thanks to anyone who's been around during this, I've appreciated all the support I've been given. Much love to you all.
