Costume Information

Description
I mean really, who actually needs any sort of pride, right?

Doing none too well on finding reference pictures for her armour though... May have to incorporate some artistic license on her ass =/

Shoes will be interesting to do =D

I applaude your courage for this costume. I hope you are able to make it comfortable to wear.

@Rinukki : Thanks, I think I'm going to need it with this one ^^;

@Daxam : I still maintain that this is pure idiocy, rather than courage. And I somehow doubt I'll manage it comfortable somehow... Not with so many fiddly parts and gaping holes in the front X.X

Hmm, well I think the best way would be to have one layer of lycra I guess, then the blue suit sections as another layer. I actually think this will be quite a hard costume to pull off, so good luck. Still, your braver than me.

If you're looking for reference pictures, Zerochan and Safebooru have some good art that can be used to help.

Here's one imagine from the official artbooks: http://www.zerochan.net/666345

The official Continuum Shift art book (one of the little ones featured with the limited editions) has a few images of her armour. What little there is of it.

Aye. I'm definitely modifying the way the armour sits around the body... Though I do like the idea of a basic suit with the armor over the top, I'll look into it for sure :3
I've drawn up quite a few ideas onto paper based on nu-13s armour to work from that I'll upload eventually.
And progress <3 Wig is bought x3

This is Epic! I attempted v-13's suit and I must admit these suits are not the easiest in the world. Good luck and can't wait to see this all complete ^^

Contact lenses and foam (Posted 25th September 2011)

I've been wanting these lenses for ages, and I love them so much <3 They'll last a year, and then I'll probably buy some more ^^;

Also, FOAM PROGRESS. I have started shaping my vast amounts of foam into some semblance of her leg armour, will either paint it with acrylics or cover it with pvc. Haven't decided yet.

Wig payed for (Posted 31st August 2011)

Bought my wig at last. Had my eye on it for a while and stroke of luck, as soon as I have the money to buy it it goes on sale at 30% off <3
£16.96 make me happy.

Not too early to start right? (Posted 23rd July 2011)

Have started working on the boots/lower-legs/shoes/things.

Started by sketching out the skinny bits of something that she stands on and will sketch it out onto mdf after. After that I plan to strap in shoes, paint the wood substitute and cover the outer in sheet foam. Hopefully wont be too uncomfortable...
