|Cost :||£145 Thus Far|
|Time Taken :||6 weeks on costume, another week of pure 4-6 hours a day work for the Buster Sword|
|Basically, I have been wanting to do a Final Fantasy character FOREVER but never found anyone that I liked and even slightly resembled LOL|
You couldn't see me doing Sephiroth could you!? LOL
Angeal is one of my favourite characters of all time and, when I have my long hair and goatee, my face somewhat resembles him...albeit with bad eating habits LOL
Part of this costume will hopefully be PHYSICAL improvement as well as testing my sewing and prop-making abilities!
EDIT: Need to get into training now! LOL
EDIT: Might well need to bring this out again...

Buster Sword woes (Posted 13th January 2009)
Ok, I finish my pauldrons, I get them to attach to my jumper, my contact lenses come and I think "Awesome! Just need a wig and I can sort wings later! This is looking great!"
Then my Buster Sword miraculously started peeling ¬_¬ I don't know what happened, because it has been rained on and it's been perfectly fine because it was varnished to hell and back...but suddenly the papier mache just decides it doesn't want to work anymore.
Ok, fine. But that means I'm now redoing the Buster Sword >_<
Pauldrons (Posted 6th December 2008)
Ok, made my first pauldron out of Modroc last night. Failed pretty badly but it was mostly to see if it was possible to do it and it worked pretty well. I will remake them over the weekend if my new modroc comes in time but I really liked it.
The shape was wrong, the lip was too curved and they weren't long enough but...that can all be remedied!
Yay for modroc!
Woot! (Posted 2nd December 2008)
Added Snap-Fastenings ^_^' That was fun with my hammer LOL *pound* there's a hole! *switch tools. Pound* Ooh, stud is in! *switch tools. Pound* And there's the button...and they click into place and stay! HAPPY SEAN!
So yeah, that's sorted. All that needs done now is stronger, larger pauldrons and wings!
So much work... (Posted 29th November 2008)
Ok, basically, I started working on my harness straps a couple of days ago while I was off work sick. Did that for a couple of hours. Today, I decided to go full pelt and finish the damn harness off...
Ok, so today and yesterday I;
As it stands, all I have left to do on the harness and the belt is to add the pop-fastenings...damn, didn't think of this so I should now go buy a pop-fastening gun ¬_¬
Anyway, about to upload some pictures!
Pauldron and Harness (Posted 29th October 2008)
Damn...what can you do when you realise you've made the main SOLDIER belt in the wrong colour? From the pictures I was looking at, it appeared brown, but I've just been told it was black...
I may have to redo it :-\
Pauldrons are made of leather right now (not pleather like the rest of the harness and belt) and are holding up well, but I might still go wonderflex in the end. We'll see when it's all done.
Weather Halts Buster Sword (Posted 24th September 2008)
Damn! Ok, so to finish my Buster Sword all I have to do is add another coat of paint and then gloss it. After a lot of hard work, it's almost finished and then...
The sky opens and begins to pour ¬_¬ So no more painting until it clears up. A whole day wasted...this is getting annoying FAST!
