Fan-bloody-tastic!! I love Monster Hunter!! I've had Daimyo Hermitaur Armour on my planned list for a long time, It scares the hell out of me, but I'm so desperate to try it, may have to give it a go for next year!

I'm so happy to see someone else doing a MH cosplay, it doesnt get enough love! I wish you the best of luck and I'll be keeping a close eye on this! <3

Day 1 (Posted 10th June 2011)

Went into town to purchase the faux fur I had ordered in the previous week. £7.99 per square metre
and also the same colour in cotten for £6.99 to use as an inlay. Needless to say, within the hour the house
was filled with whisps of blue fur.

The ears were drawn out flat in pencil the cut out and sown. The under side of each ear was left unclosed so
as to allow the White fur strips to be added in, giving the ear a better shape. Using a glue gun and toy stuffing the ears
were completed and carefully attached the hood. The hood had previously been measured, cut and inlayed.

Now I'm waiting for my delivery of styrene so I can create and add the armored section in the centre of the helm.
Thanks for reading and look out for more updates in the coming weeks.
