Cheers m'dear and I wish you all the luck you could ever have, plus some serious revision motivation. GCSEs aren't that hard when you've done them and look back to it :P

My mother thinks I'm a gun toting freak.

Journal

The return from Expo (Posted 26th May 2009)

Wow, what a great weekend. Meeting Briareos/Xaerael was awesome indeed, that costume blew me away by a mile. The masquerade was great stuff and the level that everyone was comepting at certainly has kicked up by a massive notch. The Warhammer cosplayers grandly deserved first place and I also was in awe at the Haseo cosplayer.

Didn't rewear on Sunday because the wetsuit was still sort of wet and clammy from Saturday :P

Thanks to Xaerael for being Bri, TheInkOfDoom for kitting me up/down whenever I needed the toilet, Crims0n_x for dealing with my whining during the construction stages and everyone else for being a good sport on the day.

Till next time!

A new rival has appeared! FINAL STAGE! (Posted 16th May 2009)

I'VE FINISHED

6 months OTL

Stage 12 (Posted 13th May 2009)

So very close to completion. Despite the number of pieces of armour that needs to be brought to Expo on the train, I can fit them all in 2 small sports holdalls :D What great packing skills!

Final itty bitty bits are to make 2 kneecaps and sew a couple pieces of velcro on parts so they can stick to the wetsuit.

Stage 11 (Posted 6th May 2009)

So near yet so far. Expo is creeping up on us all in T minus 17 days.

All's left is to latex/paint the neckpiece, make the elbow/knee pads, stitch the ear muffs onto the headband and sew six pieces of velcro on the wetsuit!

ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER

Stage 10 (Posted 3rd May 2009)

Panic is starting to kick in because there is 3 weeks left and I've got exams next week, ugh!

Not a lot left to do, just make a couple more pieces, finish of sewing Velcro on the wetsuit, style wig, make headband and eye scope, etc.

Wish me luck!

Stage 9 (Posted 1st April 2009)

Everything is gonig according to plan, the latexing works well and gives a good finish (thanks Neil!)

Bullpup rifle is finished, it has a laser dot sight and a acog scope:)

All 4 shoulderpads are latex and painted, in other words, finished woo!

Next up on my list is to sew the velcro straps onto the lower back plate and then latex/paint that.

Stage 8 (Posted 15th March 2009)

I&amp;#039;ve hit the £80+ mark orz

Plating the gloves complete and covering the rifle in plastazote complete.

Now the rifle needs to have the raised details finished off and then I can stick my laser on, after all that I can finally paint it.

One shoulder pad done, another to go.

Still have got to do all 4 elbow/kneecaps!

Stage 7 (Posted 17th February 2009)

Yes I know that I'm not really into posting photos online of my progress (cue laziness) but rest assured that progress IS being made XD;

Finished the greaves (leg armour) and boots so that's pretty much arms, legs and torso done. I'm now assembling the straps on the leg gun holster so that I can strap it to my leg and not have it slip down XD And yeah there's going to be a BB gun put in there but empty magazine so rest assured that I won't shoot people :P

One kneecap done, one more to go.

Two elbow caps to go.

Two shoulderpads to go.

Stage 6 (Posted 31st January 2009)

Greaves have been cut to shape and they are now ready for assembling and painting/detailing. I'm going to cheat on this one and stick them on top of my shin pads so I don't have to make straps for them XD;

The lower back of the armour has been shaped and is also ready for reinforcing with fabric and then painting.

Errrr... the ESWAT assault rifle looks pretty similar to a FAMAS so I'm going to have to think hard for that. To buy or to make?

Stage 5 (Posted 24th January 2009)

Finished the combat jacket, I did something stupid and accidentally glued the fabric (to strengthen the foam) on the WRONG side of the vest so the fabric was on the outside and not on the inside =.= Had to redo it all lmao. It's all good now though and I'm working on the boots/greaves now.

Stage 4 (Posted 5th January 2009)

Finished carving the sword out of wood and then finished the scabbard on the second day :D

Have found the perfect rubber ankle boots that match Deunan's boots 99% so I'm glad... but £14 subtracted from my account now haha. Someone gave me a free call centre headphone that can be easily fixed to look like the ESWAT communications headphone.

Still not looking forwards to that rifle :(

Stage 3 (Posted 17th December 2008)

Chestplate finished and it's looking sweet. Made a replica of the gauntlet so I have 2 now, one for L arm and one for R arm.

Thin vest that she wears: paper template has been made so I'll need to transfer the template onto two layers of foam and create a proper vest. Add raised details, paint, and it will be done :)

Stage 2 (Posted 3rd December 2008)

Extra large sheets of craft foam have arrived. Finished reinforcing the breastplate and will cover in craft foam and detail now :)

Stage 1 (Posted 26th November 2008)

Mockups for gauntlets, kneecaps, elbowcaps, upper arms, breastplate and backplate are done.

Left gauntlet finished. Right gauntlet in progress (exact replica of left, basically). Upper arms are in progress, sewing tough velcro strips onto a wetsuit is a painful job on my thumb.
Elbow cap made a lil too large, gonna be a kneecap now. Will begin on greaves when I finish upper arms.

I've also finished the glove armour but will need to find the right pair of gloves to velcro these onto.

Hm.. the ESWAT SMG looks like a right pain. I'll start that when I'm feeling a lot more enthusiatic about propmaking ;D

Chest armour going good. Toughened the front, attached my old Nerf vest onto the back of the chestplate so that it's fully wearable and adjustable around the neck and waistline. Needs a large sheet of foam to cover and finish off details.

Uh... looknig for decent boots for Deunan. That's about it so far really :)

Movie (Posted 23rd November 2008)

I deserve to be shamed for not having seen Ex Machina before deciding to cosplay Deunan. I've just finished the movie and my word it was breathtaking. Briareos' 'gun fu' was exciting and added a new level to the opening church scene, as expected from John Woo. I must admit that I'm not one to cry at movies when someone dies but I cried when Briareos said he would always protect Deunan even if the world ends; it was such a touching remark and awww... just awww. The sequel has added a new level of personality to the characters and the animation does it justice.

For those who haven't seen Appleseed... What are you waiting for?!
