Costume Information

General
Awards : Short Listed MCM Expo October 2012

Description
A full on Quadsuit with hand made resin eyes, I am hoping to buy real horse items like horse shoes and a saddle to get the authentic look.

13/10/1012 = Epona is about 60% ready for Expo. The head is almost complete, Stilts are complete, Suit needs alittle work but almost complete, Saddle is about half way.

I am really proud of the hair on Epona, She looks so awesome with her hair XD its so fluffy and stuff xD Koiice will be giving her a hair cut soon though but i like her how she is at the moment XD
I also love my stilts! They are amazing XD they have real horse hooves attached for the horse effect! Can't wait to clink about the Excel center XD

This is a great cosplay, especially as you are also able to support a Link cosplayer while wearing it.

Journal

Day of Stilts (Posted 9th October 2012)

After rebuilding my stilts to make them suitable for this quadsuit I have spent the day making them move more and now fully furred up and ready to go! They have Real horse hooves attached and fimo to make the brown part of the hoof. They have been hand gradient dyed on the top of the white. Personally i love them 8D

Resin eyes (Posted 24th August 2012)

Today I received the Resin and the mould from the postman and I mixed it up and here it is. I now have to wait for it to harden which will take about a week =/ but I now will work on Saddle and body foaming ^^

Saddle and guide lines (Posted 23rd August 2012)

Today the Saddle arrived so we had to do this XD Stilts need editing still as they are my old kero ones and have broken. But this also gives foam guide lines for later on 8D

Fur (Posted 22nd August 2012)

The swatch of fur arrived today for Epona and we give much approval. I have bought 5 meters for £60 with free postage! woop lol

Horse shoes (Posted 19th August 2012)

For a realistic feel I have bought these! SO I shall be clacky when the time comes XD

Saddle (Posted 19th August 2012)

I won a saddle yesterday off Ebay to get a realistic look when I create Epona! I will be editing this into right colours and some fabrics and Hand embroidery to recreate Eponas Saddle! Plus it would be nicer for someone to sit on me than if it wasnt a real saddle lol xD

Epona Head WIP (Posted 19th August 2012)

Here is a progress shot of Epona' head. This has taken 4 hours and about 20 or more glue sticks and alot of foam xD
I'm quite happy with it! It looks funny without eyes or hair but I can see its a horse! 8D
