I adore Escaflowne, and Dilandau is delightfully insane!
28/5/12 - Costume officially in progress due to the acquisition of a katana I will be modifying up for Dilandau's!!
EDIT: Dilandau had a great reception at Ame, although some things will need to be touched up and sorted out for Expo when neko_riddles will be my Van (which means more variety of photos taken!)
COMPLETED (Posted 8th August 2012)
Gloves (Posted 4th August 2012)
Made from stretch leather, and the red parts are craft foam covered in red stretch leather. They are hard as hell to put on and move my fingers in but they look good and I can still hold a sword, so yaaaaaay
Also (Posted 19th July 2012)
I've started the headband thingy, moulded it in shape just need to attach some wire into it (EVA foam) so it will keep it's shape definitely when PVAing and painting it! Got the purple gem for it all ready!
Start of shoulder armour as of yesterday (Posted 19th July 2012)
This was the beginning, cardboard base stuck over saucepans the right width to keep in shape as I added expanding foam over them. They are currently still covered in foam curing and the next time I'm free for cosplay I will be attacking them with a craft knife and sandpaper!
If for some reason it does pearshaped my back up plan is to use upholstery foam to build up the layers.
