|This is a planned costume for Battlestar Starfury in Dec. |
I saw a small picture of the character a while back and was drawn to the hair. Since my reluctance to use wigs I've been sticking to characters with white blond hair. An evil Elf with white blond hair whats not to love (okay, so I'm struggling to get past the notion that the actor, Luke Goss, used to be in the 80's band Bros. Yes, I'm old enough to remember and cringe! lol).
I've now seen the film and Now have defently decided that I'll be doing the costume (complete with fight cheography for a possible future entry as I have the stunt background. Specialising in swords and the Bo-staff).
I've chosen the main red and black outfit rather than the gold outfit with the crown as I prefer the design.
My brother will be designing the make-up for me. One that hopefuly I can put on with ease. This will be my first time where my face will be completely covered with make-up.
I'm looking forward it. Should be fun and challanging.
UPDATE- After Battlestar Starfury.
Managed to get most of it finished in time. Ran out of time to complete plate armour, the leathertte chest piece and the spear/sword. I ended up with Sephiroth's contact lenses as I couldn't afford to get the correct ones. I hope to have the correct ones by London May Expo. He was confortable to wear and I had no probs wearing the full face make-up.
*UPDATE- Have found out that the actress that played Nuala will be attending LFCC. So will be finishing it for then*
Note - Although, there is still the armour and the correct weapon to do one day, I am listing this as 'complete' since it pretty much is.

Make up test with contacts (Posted 30th June 2009)
With no sleep and a cold I thought better way to beat it than have a random make-up test.
Woot! Behold my elfy manlyness!
Gahhhh! Last minute weapon change (Posted 29th June 2009)
It appears that theres a weapon length restriction at LFCC so I can't take the spear with me. Even though I plan to make it so that it retracts it will still be too long.
So I'll be making the smaller sword instead for LFCC.
The spear will be made at a later date.
Contact lenses (Posted 28th June 2009)
I finally will have the correct eye colour. Managed to get some in the wildeyez range that will work for him. They are yellow with a dark edge so that it will add to the evil look of him. I was going to go for gold but I struggled to find any in my rpice range. I will try them out soon.
Stunt Demo practise. (Posted 21st December 2008)
I hope to start work on the delayed stunt demo that was meant to go with the cosplay for Starfury Battlestar. I hope to be allowed to perform it at May Expo if not it will be videod instead.
I'll be starting with the body conditioning to get ready for the actual blocking and cherography. Since its been over ten years since I performed a full fight stunt scene my body won't be used to it so it needs prep work.
(just realised ghow much of that last section could be taken the wrong way. Oh well.)
First wear success (Posted 11th December 2008)
Although costume wasn't complete I did the dress rehersal at Starfury-Battlestar. The make-up worked really well considering I wasn't using the originlal plan of latex. I ended up using a sword from stock as I ran out of time to complete the proper weapon for Nuada. The armour plates weren't finished so they didn't get worn. It did amuse me how many people had guessed that I would do the costume.
Very confortable costume to wear considering it was my first time in full face make-up. I'll hopefully have Nuada complete for Expo.
Make-up design change (Posted 17th November 2008)
Due to my budget for this costume being very small. I'll going to be dropping the liquid latex element of the make-up and just be doing the whole thing with basic make-up. Originally, my brother was going to be casting my face and then we would be building the latex pieces (exactly like how it was done for the film) for the scars. But I can't afford any of the casting materials (we are completely out of stock since my brother cast his hands for Edward Scissorhands) nor the latex. Luckerly my brother is very good with make-up so hes shown me ways that I can apply make-up that will still have the same effect.
I hope to do a make-up test soon complete with elf ears.
