Description
As all my Ame08 costumes are done it's time to plan for next year no?

This is going to be FUN to make [/sarcasm]

I've been planning to do this since way back in 2006, I had an AWESOME idea during the Ayacon charity auction... hope it works; hopefully progress will be made! XD

Heh my 'idea' from Ayacon didn't work (it was to use EL wire for the muscles so the whole costume would glow ala spirit realm) I've got some spare EL wire though, to make a golowing spiral around my arm for the soul reaver XD

I'm currently think of making the muscles from acrylic sealant followed by a coat of silicone 'dragonskin'

but OMFG I've finally made a start! XD

Yo long time no chat mate; asides that i'm really looking forward to seeing you do this at some point!

Its one thats hideously underdone but then with good reason i spose, given the lacking torso where organs should be among other things.

I'd happily be your Kain. Though, if we are featuring a Soul Reaver weapon, it'll have to be at my house....I dont think I will be allowed to wield a 5ft metal sword in public....
