|Time Taken :||1 week|
|Main reasons for remaking:|
- not happy with wings
- where did that binding go?
- that tail needs finishing...
Midlands expo was awesome! I'm so glad I got this done in time~
Unfortunately, a few things didn't work out, such as the binding, the tail support and also the wing support, so I ended up having to hold a lot of stuff in place xD But I suppose that's what I get for trying to make such a complicated costume a week before the con....
Putting this as 'complete' since I am planning on remaking this entirely! I just need to alter the harness for the wings so that they stay up properly and fix a couple of things, hopefully that won't take too long, then I'll be selling it. I'm not sure if I'll include the tunic since it doesn't fit properly and ended up getting rather damaged due to the wings where I hadn't finished them.
But yeah, wings will definitely be for sale once fixed, and maybe tail if anyone wants it.
99% CHANCE OF ME GOING TO MIDLANDS NOW, GOT A WEEK TO FINISH IT! LETS MAKE THIS AWESOME!
Going all out with this - full sized wings, tail, everything. Also turntables, just because I want to make some and I probably won't cosplay Dave in the future.
almost done! (Posted 16th February 2012)
Made the tunic today and almost finished feathering the larger wing.
After this picture was taken, I feathered more of the wing and added the feathers around the collar. The whole thing looks ten times better now.
Just need to finish the last bit of the wing and finish the frame for the tail now!
Wings progress (Posted 15th February 2012)
Almost done! Just need to buy some more glue, then finish feathering both sides of the larger wing.
Tail (notes to write up) (Posted 14th February 2012)
- Wire doubled over then bent to shape
Wings (notes to write up in tutorial) (Posted 14th February 2012)
- Wire frame bent into shape (skeleton)
minus the crow (Posted 4th February 2012)
Just a quick test of everything I've gathered so far. Just need to sort out the wings, tail and weapon(s) now! Going to make one of the wings removable so I can cosplay both version at once almost. It also gives me an excuse in case I can't make the second wing in time.
[EDIT - Decided to make a tunic instead of using this shirt]
