i must thank my wonderful friend Amber (hellokitty) for helping my get back into my costume and repair everything at the last minute when the whole costume fell apart! THANK YOU!!!

My costume for the competition...

I am totally limited in movement when wearing this costume... and due to the lack of time and poor outcome... i am due to just chucking this away XD

waist armour- i drew out my tempplate on paper of a corset and cut it out on pleather and then stitched it up, the rows of silver are pleather too whch is stitched on again and painted silver. i then puncher whole into the silver lines using a screw so that i can thread ribbon into the whole corset... and due to the large amount of ribbon needed for this costume, i had to make mine own 40+ meters of ribbon (which was a damn pain)

11/08/2008

due to the blade hight and and not being the strength its ment to be... it is not snapped and at a condition of no ammendence... where as the full on armour has held up all the way... i will be remaking everything in the future....
