|Sewing on silver buttony things (time consuming!)||High||Complete|
Getting There (Posted 4th February 2009)
I'm really happy with how this is turning out. :) I have to finish off the details on the gloves and I have to adjust some things on the suit and get the wig. But all the big bits are nearly done, leaving the sewing on of the silver studs. ^___^
I love my sword.
Practising poses is good fun too. :D
Making progress (Posted 22nd January 2009)
So ew've been making plenty of progress on this lately. I'm really loving this costume!
Sword (Posted 15th January 2009)
So I started the sword today and have discovered two things.
1. Making props isn't as scary as I thought and just like a costume, its a lot simpler when you break everything down into chunks. And it helps when you're useing the same method your friend has used! :D
Right! So far, I have the cardboard base skeleton over a dowling rod. And I've put on the first layer of paper mache. I estimate needing to do four or five layers. :]
Progress (Posted 14th January 2009)
So like, the shorts have been finished, aside from the silver studs (which are on everything and therefore being done last!) Also the collar has been done though... I'm in two minds about it. It looks fine and fits, but the neck is really too high. And due to the length of the zip, its actually kind of hard to do anything about it. But I'll have a think.
On the way! (Posted 10th January 2009)
This now looks like a throw back from some forgotten era! Seriously, if I went out wearing this as it is now, with some rollar skates, a big wig and make up, people might think I was from Starlight Express!
... Have I mentioned what great clevage this cosplay gives me? 8D
And So It Begins... (Posted 9th January 2009)
So I started with crap loads of fabric. Got scared of the cosplay and looked into commissioning it.
