Sakura - Zedela
Yue - MasterDarcy.
Kerberos - Me (Aka Darkiekun)
Arrow clow card - Koiice


Making a moving Jaw, moving paws and so on C8

---

Duct tape goes really quickly when making a dummy =/ I used 20 meters already and no where near a full me XDD So bought 50 more meters now you will do it D< Once thats done I can get to work on foaming it and getting the body done which will be the easy part..........Wings.....TWT

---

Body suit at 90% Completion. Inner foam ready and carved body suit made too with some problems around the legs as I didn't get how to do the pattern but we got there with some help from mother xD But now thats done and I put a zip in down the frount so I can get in and out easier. Will attach Velcro on it so I can hide the zip with my white fur! 8D so smart xD

---

Doing Stilts tomorrow! 8DDD Then I shall get them furred and everything before finishing off this cosplay. Wings to be done after AyaCon.
Ordered Platazone from Coscraft yesterday for the rest of the armour.

---

No have stilts and they are ready to be furred. This will be nearly complete untill after AyaCon where I shall complete everything! Looking into casting Resin Gems for Kero instead of my red spot

Wings are complete now with three straps attached to keep the darn thing to my body D8

Your tiger costume is amazing. i love it. But i was wondering whether you need to walk like a tiger all the time in the cosplay party. That would be quite hard for you.

by Elle on Sunday, 25 September, 2011 - 10:13

OMG that is such an immense cosplay :DD I have never seen anyone do a Kero cos... It just lookes so amazing :))

Journal

Finally complete (Posted 22nd October 2011)

After 6 months this outfit is finally complete.I don't have a clue how it looks all together yet either XD I might do a test shot during the week or Just save it for Sat.........Expo is so close o3o

Armour (Posted 15th October 2011)

Working on the Amour at the moment. This is the basic shape. Needs to be painted and so on yet but you get the idea 8D

Wings (Posted 15th October 2011)

After a quick test I have found one strap and elstic isn't enough and have changed it to have 3 straps in it instead and it now holds alot better. Now to get help putting holes into my suit to slip the straps into ^^

Wings nearly complete (Posted 14th October 2011)

Here is the wings sitting on the kitty helper They are holding up Nicely with the help of the strap. The foam is also helping to keep the wings in place.

Feathers (Posted 14th October 2011)

I have attached Feathers to the side of the kitty helper as seen in below Journal. This is to try and help it look like wings are coming out of my back instead of just on a random white hump.

Kitty wing Helper (Posted 14th October 2011)

I call it the kitty wing helper as It looks like a fluffy white cat 8D Anyway the point of this is to lift my wings. This is the foam block I used in previous pictures to hold up the wings. There is a strap to hook around me for the wing holdage!

WIP wings sitting (Posted 24th September 2011)

I spent half an hour with mum trying to get my wings to sit on my back. While mum didn't get what I was trying to explain we roughtly got this. It doesnt work perfectly yet but we are geting closer than before!

Wings (Posted 19th September 2011)

Getting the wings sorted end of this week. I need to create a wedge to get them to sit right on Kero but this isn't something I can do on my own so I need help of my mother. Hopefully this will go right and then I can Finish them off and move onto the last few bits. This is the Final Major part to do on this cosplay Ready for Expo

Casting Gems (Posted 6th September 2011)

Today I have started to Cast gems. I made too much mixture but oh well XD Spilt more than I thought XD Hopefully they will set all pretty and be awesome.....(I doubt it but I still hope XD)

Resin Gems (Posted 4th September 2011)

Today I have started to make my molds for the three gems. Earring, HEad armour and chest armour! They looking good in fimo form XD Will make mold from it and then resin! Wish meh luck ^3^

Buying agian (Posted 27th August 2011)

Payday yesterday lead me to buy Resin and the dye to get this show back on the road. More Fimo bought to give him some more teeth aswell as claws for his frount paws 8D

resin gems (Posted 11th August 2011)

Looking into casting my own gems after AyaCon! I know what to do in theory so 8D might test this MWAHAHAHA XD

Stilts WIP (Posted 12th July 2011)

Stilts are now built and ready! With some help from daddy these where made from PVC Pipping and dads tools XD No to be foamed a little then furred! Then what ever else is needed XD Oh Paws are needed too duh XD

Paws complete (Posted 9th July 2011)

The back paws are now fully furred and clawed. Hand sewn and hot glued on ^-^ Quite happy with the amount of work on Kero today

Legs WIP (Posted 9th July 2011)

Here is WIP of Kero's hind legs. With help from mum and stress from me (XD) we got this. Mum did the pinning while I was a model and stood with foam on my legs lol.
Next up is the top half and tail 8D

Legs (Posted 8th July 2011)

Bought PVC Piping for Kero today Including nuts and bolts costing me £30 =3=
Will be building them this weekend apparently so I'll finally have some stilts XD Then I have a reason to get my arse in gear and continue it. Working on the other paws later after more work on Kuja.

Paws (Posted 6th July 2011)

Here are the start of the Paws. Foamed and ready to be furred tomorrow or something 8D So Lazy arnt i? XD

More Foam (Posted 6th July 2011)

I have bought some foam for the rest of my body on Monday and now have afew days off of work to get working on Kero again ready for Expo. I have been working on my Back paws and the foam is ready to be attached and turned into toes 8D

Head WIP 6 (Posted 21st May 2011)

Mostly done now!
Just needs
1) Teeth
2) Tongue
3) To actually be attached to Helmet ^^;
4) make the mouth move with mine which can't be done till it's on helmet
5) Extra fur at back and sides for neck.

Let me know what you think of the head please

Starting to fur - 2 (Posted 21st May 2011)

After pinning everything in place here is what I had so far. All pinned in and to see how it was looking. Truthfully at this point I hated it so badly =-=

Starting to fur (Posted 21st May 2011)

I took off the tape pattern I had made myself and cut out all the pieces. Starting with the cream fur I pinned it in place to see how it was fitting. the fur needs a trim =-=

Fur Arrival (Posted 21st May 2011)

Today my Golden fur arrived and was a little more...oranger/darker than I thought but I can't really afford anything else so I thought I would give it ago anyway.

Making head armour (Posted 20th May 2011)

Decided to make the head armour before furring as;
1) Easier to get the pattern and latex it without worrying about the fur
2) I don't have the fur yet XD

Well I have the cream fur but.....XD Anyway This is made from Plastazone and Latex and paint. Needs some more work yet but getting there ^^

Head WIP 5 (Posted 17th May 2011)

Kero now has ears to make him look like a lion and here is where I finish for tonight as I don't have fur or even a helmet to put it on yet so XDDD

Head WIP 4 (Posted 17th May 2011)

I then edited the jaw back onto the head using elastic which eventually will help with the moving jaw. Probably will come off again before the end of finishing the head but oh well. XD

Head WIP 3 (Posted 17th May 2011)

Taking more and more foam off the jaw and the head cutting it into a more realistic form with help off real life lion pictures and lots of photos of Kero the head started to take shape

Head WIP 2 (Posted 17th May 2011)

Once I had the basic shape I then cut into the mouth to remove it from the actual head. I am planning a moving jaw so it had to come off now and reshape into a jaw that will eventually have teeth and a tongue. Go Kero XD

Head WIP 1 (Posted 17th May 2011)

Using 2" thick foam sheets I cut out the basic head shape six times to create a very flat head. Not all where the same shape for what ever reason but I glued them all together with hot glue (lucky that my 100 glue sticks arrived today xD) and then added 4" on each cheek to give more shape.

Stilt prototype (Posted 17th May 2011)

I tried to made the stilt move and here's what I have. It does work but being cardboard doesn't work very well XD. Once I can get to B&Q's or something like that I will make it better with PVC Piping and I will also add a hinge to the bottom to attach the paw to the bottom and some Elastic C8

Outline (Posted 16th May 2011)

Without wings at mo as I would confuse myself XDD

The basic idea is the head on a helmet, vision out of the neck, Moving paws, Follow me eyes, Hopefully a tail that can pose or move? Oh and a Movable Jaw so I can talk while him since he does talk lol. Planning on the wings with help of dad at the moment C8
