Costume Information

Cost : £150ish
Time Taken : Hopefully 6 weeks if it's done in time!

First real armour costume, Becca is pretty handy with craft foam so she's going to show me a few things.

Apparently this is a bit more likely to be finished on time than Cao Pi... we'll see.

I have discovered foam is cheap.

Getting there (Posted 17th May 2011)

All armour cut out and shaped, currently backing it and treating for spraying. Tassle on spear done, that'll be my main task for this weekend. Under clothes done. Lots of odds and ends to do, I imagine this will go to the wire again!

Damn you Koei!!! (Posted 2nd May 2011)

My progress is being hampered by Dynasty Warriors 7... My time spent playing it for "research" is far out-weighing the making time...
