|PREPARE YOURSELF, THIS IS IT!!! HWAAAA!!!! |
Grandia is one of my favorite games of all time and it make me feel emotions none other game made me feel at the time.
I just wanna derp around my hometown searching for ruins (yeah right XD) Hopefully there will be people that I can share our love for the game at the con! Its sort of like a hidden gem in gaming, fondly remembered by a number of fans yet so few really express it these days.
First major prop!!! So much fun!
On-hold (Posted 4th April 2013)
Due to some last minuite issues I wont be wearing this for Gemucon *heartbreak*
Bag complete! (Posted 3rd April 2013)
Made it to be funtional too! made of felt and craft foam, and opens using velcro. Waiting for the glue to dry fully before deciding how well it can store my stuff...might get a bit paranoid that it breaks lol well see.
Sorta hit a bump in the road with the hat today. Tried to get some more craft foam but they didnt have any white in store today. After some time pondering the best way around it would be to use whatever craft foam I have and wrap it with some white fabric.
First think in the morning I plan to paint the gold onto the chest strap so it would have plenty of time to dry while I hem the scarf and glue the armour pieces together, and spend the evening doing the last bits of sewing. Might remake the sheath if I have time as its quite on the wide side lol
Praying it would be at a decent standard, if not Ill be cancelling my masquerade entry.
Most likely a costume ill get back to later on to properly finish :) Just excited to cosplay as one of my fav game characters yeaaahhhh!!!!
Sword (Posted 1st April 2013)
Would kinda like to get back to it at some point but damn proud of my first ever major prop!
I now have a hat!!!! (Posted 1st April 2013)
Was a real pain but got there in the end. Not sure if I like th base tbh but no time for that xD
The goggles are in process. Need some more craft foam for the ear covers.
Mountain dew goggles ftw!
Yaaay (Posted 1st April 2013)
Gotten most of the armor painted but some of it needs another layer. Im really dreading the time id glue the piecies togther xD
Sword handle needs another layer too and some tidying but done otherwise yayz!!!
Then finish the suit ^^ that is nearly done too!
Not much time left! (Posted 31st March 2013)
Managed to get the jumpsuit fitting and 3 more of the white cuffs left to sew and add pockets.
In the morning I aim to get the sword mostly done as well as hopefully finishing painting the armour and hopefully start the hat 0_0
When Easter is over I will need to head tp the shop for some fabric for the chest strap and get materials for the sheath.
Shorts! (Posted 29th March 2013)
Began life as an old t-shirt xD Quite comfy :)
Still lots to do but quite doable. Might result in a few late nights *cries*
Sword is getting there yay!
Leg armour :3 (Posted 8th March 2013)
Leg armour is cut, shaped, glued, thermoformed and 1st layer of paint is nearly dry.
I used a coke bottle cap and a egg cup to shape the heated craft foam and a hair dryer for the heat source. Will be using the same method for the wrist armour which is in progress right now.
Plan to start the hat soon. Mountain Dew goggles are gonna be fun :3 Have some better fabric for the scarf now, original was too red so I used it for Ib instead :D
This glue is very icky :S Works like a charm but very gooey 0_0
Sword progress (Posted 2nd March 2013)
Just the blade :)
Lots of sanding and neatening left XD Waiting for the glue to dry first ^^
3 layers of foamboard but 1 of the layers had some dents on so on the top layers they have some card on top. For the texture I have added some butterfly pins.
Stitching yayz~ (Posted 8th November 2012)
I made an attempt to sew the sleeves on last week but the needle had snapped and barely made progress that day -_-; however today I felt productive and roughly handsewn them on in preparation for when I get needles. Also Ill be needing a zipper and some snaps too so I can finish the base of the jumpsuit, and do pockets too. Been so long since I made pockets XD Kinda nervous over them. Also be needing some white and lots and lots of bias tape!
Hopefully Ill be getting some craft foam too so I can start on the armour. Been itching to so that for too long!
Made a start on the sword too! Just parts of Foamboard at the moment but hopefully it'll turn out ok ^_^
Sewing is so fun~ Sewing is so fun~ Now lets take a look and see what we are making~ (Posted 6th October 2012)
It is mostly taken in at this point and the sleeves are gonna need attaching soon. Kinda resembling a tube dress at this point so sleeves first and make my way down then get some white and some bias take at some point soon.
Really considering doing the Saturn artwork version due to the shades of blue and the extra armour work looks fun!
It begins! (Posted 28th September 2012)
I had some light blue material left lying around and brought some dark blue a few days ago so I decided to make a start on the sewing.
Due to my super epic non-patten using instincts what I have done with the jumpsuit needs ALOT of taking in. I might need to buy more of the light blue for sleeves unless I can scavenge more fabric from my sewing box or whatever if any left. Other than that Ill be needing more dark blue for the hat and some white for the sleeves/legs.
Thinking of buying this wig (Posted 17th September 2012)
Tempted to go with the bright red in the artwork as opposed to the copper in the game simply because I prefer the colour and I think it would go better with the colour scheme :D
Hopefully gonna buy the fabric for the jumpsuit sometime in the next few weeks :D
