|Isabela is one of my favourite characters and I thought that this would be a good costume to try as my first cosplaying attempt!|
I've started gathering bits and bobs together - material for the main part of the costume and I'm actually going to have a bash at making the boots as I couldn't find any to buy. I'm going to experiment with fibreglass and foam for the armour bits.
I'm still figuring out how to approach the choker - I'll keep you posted :o)
Argh!! Panic!! (Posted 14th October 2012)
The Expo is less than two weeks away and what I have left to do is frightening!
I see alot of late nights in my near future...
Contact Lenses (Posted 12th September 2012)
Just ordered coloured contact lenses for my costume - can't wait to get them now! I'm all bouncy and excited :D
Gloves done!! (Posted 9th September 2012)
Finally got the armour bits spray painted and aged. I'm really pleased with how they have come out :)
Choker nearly there... (Posted 14th August 2012)
Thanks to some inspiration from CakeIsGone, I now have the choker part of the necklace done! It's a relief as that was starting to worry me a bit. Just need to sort out the snakey bit and the medallions.
Meanwhile, work continues apace on the 'boots' and the tunic. Looking good so far :)
Buckles, leather and a corset (Posted 9th August 2012)
All arrived this week!!! (for the costume that is!)
Is it wrong that I'm excited by this?!
The Boots (Posted 3rd August 2012)
I started butchering the trousers to make the boots! I know they are just trousers with holes cut out at the knees at the moment, but bear with me on this. The finished items will look awesome :D
Butchery!! (Posted 2nd August 2012)
The leather gloves got my attention today! They became fingerless, liningless and picked apart. They will be sewn back together of course.
It's a start... (Posted 1st August 2012)
My sister has made the shoulder armour using fibreglass - it's looking good so far! We've been working out how to do the main tunic part of the costume. There will be a corset involved we've decided! We should have templates done by the end of the day for that.
Nearly All Set! (Posted 29th July 2012)
It all seems a bit daunting at the moment - so much to do and so little time!
So far I have -
I have enlisted my sister to help with some bits as she's very creative. She has been working on building the armour using fibreglass. I'm going to see how she is getting on this week.
Meanwhile, I've been trying to figure out how to do the necklace. I've researched how other people have done it and I think I'm going to try and make most of it from scratch. We'll see how that goes....
