Costume Information

Description
as a Kai Fan I love Dranzer and her beauty! As time goes on I'm getting better at Quadsuits and fur suits so making Dranzer seems so much easier now.
I have ideas in my mind on how to make the wings and the general idea for the body so all good fun 8D

Planned for May Expo 2013 With Koiice as Driger 8D

The Wings -

The wings will be made with Felt feathers due to the suit costing a fortune as it is. I could not spent £200+ On large feathers which wouldnt even do half a wing more than anything ^^;
SO I have opted into painting each feather. It is time con straining but worth it. I feel its my own personal touch! Plus it's still not that cheep as I need ALOT of Felt lol

I see you're planning to have this done for May 2013?
I've been waiting to finish my current costume so I can get started on a Driger quadsuit. But it won't be ready probably untill Oct 2013 or May 2014.
Would it be possible if you (once finished) would wear it again for one of the other expos so we could get some pictures together =D?

Wow, painting all of those feathers must have driven you crazy. The final result was worth the effort though.

I thought your cosplay was really epic, the wings are amazing to look at! It must have taken ages *_*

I think this was one of the first cosplays I got a glimpse of after making my way through the Expo queue. It definitely stopped me in my tracks for a little bit. And those wings, too... awesome work. :D

Journal

Heat gun problems (Posted 16th May 2013)

Yesterday morning I was working on Armour for Dranzer and.........My heatgun dies! It was pronounced dead by my father who tried to fix it. Me and Koiice walked to two tescos and an asda at 11pm with no luck! (not even any pony blind bags T^T) Anway my mummy saved me and I am now working endlessly to catch up with this T^T I have 5 days to get my armour done till i go to expo this ISNT GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD

Completed Hair (Posted 10th May 2013)

My god I havent been doing journals!
Anyway Dranzer's hair is finally complete! 4 Packets where used in this monster and i love it! So thick and stunning just how Dranzer should have it! Lets hope the wind agrees at expo! XD it will be worse than a wig i know it XD Lmao
In terms of being ready for Expo......... The main suit is basically done just need to attach wings and tail. Feet need doing and im half way though the armour. Then its all paint and attach then complete realllllllllly there are small jobs which make it look worse than it is XD

OH OH! and on the day of expo i will be spraying her with glitter! 8D

Feathers (Posted 21st April 2013)

I am actually most done with the feathers now! UGH XD I have about 20 left to paint and then they can go onto my second wing and they will be complete! Then i jut need to do Armour, Hair, Tail and feet 8D

Crown Complete (Posted 3rd February 2013)

I Managed to complete the crown and paint it. I used Worbla to create the crown thanks to the cardboard version I made ^^ I found it hard to begin with But I feel i improved alot last night ^^ Even if I was having one of the worst days ever! (like everything was going from since i got up and went to bed xD)

Getting the Armour right (Posted 1st February 2013)

Since Worlba is rather expensive i am making the base idea of the amour from cardboard which gives me the right measurements without spending a penny! joys XD I also have an idea of the hair but awaiting more to give it PUFF!

More materials (Posted 31st January 2013)

Today I got yet more felt for yet more feather painting! this is about a meter and a half of felt so should be useful XD I also have myself some Worlba (I think it called this XD) For the armour. Not enough to do al of it yet but defo enough for the crown and some other things ^^ Yellow spray paint also acquired! Also I have now worked out how to do her hair and I should be doing that tonight ^^ wish me luck!

Progress (Posted 20th January 2013)

With the help of Koiice we have managed to whip up about 200-300 feathers. We have afew more to paint then I need to buy more felt but a main bulk will have been done! will finally see an end to these annoying feathers!
I also got a bargain on fur! it was on sale for half price plus Koiice's student Discount meant an amazing deal! Don't think i got so excited over fur before XD But Dranzer now has fur and I can start getting real progress done! only other things left to get is feet materials and armour materials owo;;;;;; XD

Head WIP (Posted 4th January 2013)

Heres the head so far the neck needs work obviously but here it is so far ^^ Complete with tounge XD

Head (Posted 21st December 2012)

Head is attached to a Helmet finally and the Jaw is attached once again but now it has a tounge in it! Woo XD I justneed to but in some wire/string to get the jaw to move and smooth the neck before it is ready for furring! ^^ Photos soon!
I also decided on how to make all the armour and I just need some money to pay for it ^^ also Dranzers 'crown' will be removable as it would make her head a lot taller making her harder to pack other wise.

Jaw (Posted 9th December 2012)

I have gone back to the original Jaw plan.I have though a nice paper mached version of the lower jaw thanks to my efforts which is ultra light XD So not bad ^^ I also made a tongue for her which sits perfectly in the mouth. (photo soon)

Feather Calculations (Posted 5th December 2012)

calculated i need to have 97 feathers to cover one side of one wing so thats...... 388feathers to paint...... This Might take a while!

Feathers Start (Posted 2nd December 2012)

Here are the feathers so far! I have hand cut, painted every one is unique as is real fathers. I quite like how they turned out ^^ but there is so much more to make ^^; This was made from left overs from a previous cosplay so not bad start! Ill be buying for Felt eventually to make the other....... god knows how many feathers XD

Dranzers Head (Posted 2nd November 2012)

I am trying something different for this, I have made the usual foam head but will be paper macheing the head for about 5 or so layers, Unfortently I ran out of pva XD So this is on hold untill I can get more. I will make the paper mache and then cutting it off to make it light weight. I have seen another do this to make the moving jaw too so I shall see how it goes. if it fails......I still have a foam head to work with XD

Planning Stages (Posted 31st October 2012)

Dranzer if offically in planning stages. I am Thinking of lots of things to do. I am hoping to make Dranzer glow as she does when she comes out of the bit chip. This is just an idea but would be awesome If i could do it.
I shall start her very soon and I have plenty of time since she is my main cosplay for May and shall be the best costume yet!
