New Scales (Posted 19th January 2011)
Metal scales were proving difficult (not to mention expensive!) to use. Moved onto using thin foam scales. Painted the first batch gold today. They still need weathering and then they should look quite impressive.
Cutting Scales (Posted 24th December 2010)
Borrowed some cutters from a friend so the scales are coming along nicely. I have roughly 25 cut so far. Can probably get another 13 / 14 from the sheet i have left.
First materials (Posted 14th December 2010)
Bought myself metal sheeting.
Photo to be attached at a later date.
And so it begins. (Posted 8th December 2010)
Mapped out a rough timeline to follow to have the suit finished in time for Manchester McM Expo. Probably wont stick to it but it gives me something to check myself against for slacking.
I also haven't included the cloak, but i intend to complete that during drying phases of the armour pieces. I also haven't included time needed for electronics to light the crystals... but hopefully i'll work that out as i go.
20th December - acquire materials to start.
28th July - DEADLINE - Weapon painted and costume complete.
