Start of the Master Sword (Posted 29th May 2012)

After stumbling across something very helpful on my friend's website (www.nadiaxel.com) I decided to start making my Master Sword.
I'll be using a method very similar to hers, but have changed a few things about it to suit my own way of working. Hopefully I should be able to make this one without any help from my dad!

So, I got the template made today and also managed to cut out the cardboard pieces which I'll be using as a base. These are VERY rough on the image, there's a lot of neating up/proper placement/etc to do, so sorry it looks bad right now! It wont when it's done!

I'm using a thin strip of wood between the cardboard pieces to support the sword, and I'll be crafting the 'wings' and decoration with modelling clay as well as building the blade shape with the cardboard and possibly paper clay before papier macheing it all and painting.

Fingers crossed this turns out good!

Link 2.0 is go! (Posted 27th May 2012)

After a bit of deliberation I decided to create a new costume page for my re-make of Link. This way I can keep the images, events and other things seperate for each costume.

So this is a fresh start for Link! I'm re-making the first costume I ever made and am planning to debut it on what will almost be the anniversary of it's creation.

The only things I'm hoping to keep from the old costume are the shield, ears, wig and sword (I'm still undecided and may get myself a new wig and ears though...)
For now things like the gloves, undershirt etc are low on my to-do list because if I run out of time and money I'll use those again until I can make them. Everything else is being ditched for definate though.

I'm looking forward to working on this costume now that I've picked a few things up from the other's I've made and I'm excited to see the improvement I've made in my first year of cosplaying! Roll on October!
