Description
Well its still in progress but I'm really enjoying making it so far.
I chose Sebastian because I love his armour XD Also he is a total sex god~ *fanboy* So far the hardest part was creating the templates from scratch, best bit was heat moulding the foam, so much fun xD

Update-
OH DEAR GOD THE GLOVES WERE SUCH A B*TCH TO MAKE.

---
So, Sebby was worn to our first con. I'm going to be remaking the scale mail from a better material. Also the freakin belt buckle XD

Dear GOD, how did you make that sexy, sexy bow? <3

I made it out of a plank of pine wood. Drew out the design, jigsawed it, sanded it, painted with wood stain. The handle wrap is made from muslin and bits of craft foam. Is easier than it sounds XD

Glad the other greave was missing. He'll bring honour to the rest of your armor once he's done.

To-Do List

Add trim to maille-dress-thingMediumIn Progress
Remake right greaveMediumIn Progress

Journal

Retouching le shit (Posted 26th October 2011)

As expo is in a few days have retouched all of the armour pieces with new painty love and will be working on the stupid glove thing.

Meanwhile, I am Ootada Hikaru.

FLUFFEHHH (Posted 18th August 2011)

Fluffy hood is made <3 So fluffy and warm

IS DONE. (Almost) (Posted 16th August 2011)

Ehehehe *camwhores shamelessly* 98% done... I just need to make some pouches for the belt and tidy bits of it up ^^ SO HAPPY.

IM A BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY (Posted 16th August 2011)

THE BITCH IS DONE~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOw just have to attach buckles to make him wearable.
My face demonstrates the PAIN and MONSTROSITY of cutting them all out.

WTF IS THIS SHIT (Posted 15th August 2011)

;-----------------; Its just giving me headaches and I hate it and I want it to die T_T Im nearly there though... better freakin' look good.

A BELT FIT FOR A PRINCE (Posted 15th August 2011)

The belt I got in the bargain bin of a sewing shop for 99p was too skinny, so I made this one out of my spare leatherette. There are the skinny flaps at the end to accomodate for the small buckle thing. Look at the beauty of him. Might repaint it XD Looks a bit spack.

I HATE GLOVES. (Posted 14th August 2011)

Just finished mainly hand sewing one of my gloves. I hate gloves. I hate hand sewing. *fingers bleed everwhere* Seriously. I have blood stains on the inside of it >>

MERMAID PROGRESS (Posted 13th August 2011)

Its nearly done <3 It actually looks like a maille thing now, I just have to finish cutting the scales :3

*twitch* (Posted 12th August 2011)

Hey everyone..

Decided to actually start using the journal.
Thanks alot if you're following my progress with this costume, it's been a hell of a lot of hard work. I hope to take some nice pictures of it soon. Today I'm going to work on the quiver and maille-dress-thing. Seriously? What do you call that anyway... Its' like a slutty dress made out of scales.... *_* I'M A MERMAID.

PewPewPew (Posted 30th July 2011)

Made my bow today, extremely happy with it x3

Le stupid belt buckle. (Posted 27th July 2011)

Have made the main part of the belt buckle out of clay. It spent a while looking like Tingle from the Zelda series.

White Christmas (Posted 3rd July 2011)

Not really. Just silly amounts of white spray paint. Ehehe. The entirety of my armour and a few pieces of Isabela's.

Trimtastic (Posted 7th June 2011)

Obviously it will look better when painted but I really like how the trim makes the armour look 12x more awesome x3
