I used a clear plastic ball (the ones you can split in two..) and used craft foam for the raised bits, and painted everything with acrylics. ^_^
Christmas lights on a battery pack glued inside, and voila~!

I can't BELIEVE I missed you at expo D8 I saw you a few times from across the room but it was always so crowded I couldn't get to you. DAMMIT. You looked absolutely amazing (and gosh you're a lot taller than I thought you'd be - or maybe I'm just short O.o). If you ever wear Cesare again then I'd love to try and get some pics with you. My inner fangirl is dying to be let loose D8

One baby down, two to go~! (Posted 27th December 2010)

Okay, so... his armour, there are babies on them! BABY ANGELS! Cherubs... They're scary, and kinda annoyingly hard to do. But I got bits of his chest armour down~! HUZZAH! Can't wait to get this all finished, as it's, together with the leatherwork, the hardest part of the costume!

Finding the stuff I need~! (Posted 18th December 2010)

So yeah, I'm almost finished getting all my supplies for this mean man. I've ordered my beard, mustache and wig. I got two leather/skins for the leather pieces, and got the fabric for both this extra flaps, and pants, bought WONDERFUL manly boots.

I'm still pondering on the cape though, it's shiny, and got this satin feel, but I absolutely hate, disgust and revolt the idea of working with satin, as I find it cheap looking and horrible to work with. So instead I'm looking for a replacement, less shiny, heavier on the feel, and I can't help returning to silk. But, as I already spend quite an amount of money on this guy, I don't want to add 6 meters of 30 euros a meter fabric on the list. (Because frankly, even I can't justify 180 euros... for a cape!)
I've always like Suedine/ fake suede leather, but it might not be bright enough for the cape, but as I said, it does have a nice feel to it...
Well we'll see how it goes, right?

No image, as all I could show you is rolled up skins, some fabrics and emails showing I bought tools, beards and the likes, XD
