Time Taken : 50 weeks Aprox

Description
Well it all started as a silly joke but then it turned in to a determained project it was my first convention and my first cosplay i ever made.It was updated untill to amecon 08 when i decided not to do anymore to it ....for a while =P

The hardest part was:
The legs were evil (e_e)' the sections just dont fit very well Still dosent look right now but its time to move on to another cosplay

The Easiest part was: The head... i loved the head and it was realy enjoyable to make and looks kinda good for a first cosplay

I learned that doing armour in fabric my way isnt as good as other methods because of weather and heat....
Going on to what it was like when wearing the costume It was quite fun because i felt like a giant plushy and i like the hugs =D , but it was a bit walm and vission was about 50% and like seeing through a letter box but other then that it was a great first cosplay (also it took a while to put it on and transporting it took up alot of space
