|Cost :||Millions Probably >_> (£45 - So Far?!? CHEAP!)|
|Heehee~ I'm not insane! |
Here's a bit of information about this character;
It's a being from Mercury, it was sent to Earth about 5000 BC to obliterate humans O_o (A bit too early there, me thinks...)
It's characteristic trait is "crystalising" the area around it... As it moves, the trees, ground and even the Earth turns blue and become "crystalised".
It's voice is a shrill sharp "noise"... Of which I'll be trying to do at the expo XD
I'm thinking of using a fur suit for the flames and then adding the armour...
I WON'T be doing the two GIANT legs or the disk, these would be FAR too big for the expo... And I wouldn't be allowed in >_<
Other than that, I hope to be able to do the GIANT spiked tails... But... It depends on the size of it when I've got the main body done ¬_¬
Hardest bit about it? Getting it to the expo XD
Cosplay DEATH (Posted 12th July 2009)
And due to loosing ones job this project grinds to a halt ¬_¬
Opens Wallet... *Moth Flies Out* (Posted 16th June 2009)
Why does this fabric have to be £10 a yard? =_='
I've even managed to get it reduced... It WAS £16!
/Has bought another 3 yards
Urgh =___________________________= (Posted 11th June 2009)
I had to make ANOTHER foam sandwich, as my orgional idea didn't work.
I'm now having to buy some more shiny fabric as I've run out too xD
I GET A DAY OFF WORK!?! (Posted 10th June 2009)
/Bounces off the wall
I work 84 hours a week.. AND THEY'VE GIVEN ME ANOTHER DAY OFF! :D
I'll be planning to make the tail coat... AGAIN. It's good news about my job too! I didn't loose it!
/Is sat here after his monthly meeting just having a 15min rest xD
I'm pondring on re-making them much lighter, that being... Instead of using a "foam sandwich" I'll try using just several layers of buckram fused together into the same shape, hopfully this shouldn't crease too much when it bends.
OF ALL THINGS HOLY! =_=;;; (Posted 8th June 2009)
My lovely dog (I still love her xD) has PEED on my tailcoat armour!
IT SMELLS AND HAS WARPED! I HAVE TO START IT AGAIN!
That's about 24 hours work solid there ¬_¬
Colour Changing Fabric~! (Posted 5th June 2009)
I got some! xD
I had one type and then found another... Which is FAR superior! I'm currently stretching and gluing it to the armour (with WATER BASED SUPER GLUE?!?) which is going quite well...
The helmet is nearly finished, I just need to tidy up the back at the top and then add the visor...
I'm pondering on using dark green spandex instead of the plastic as it would me MUCH easier to do well.
Another 12 hours straight! (Posted 2nd June 2009)
Aaaand now I have sunburn on my nose ¬_¬
Presenting... SHOULDER MANDIBLES! XD
I've changed the shape of the helmet to what the origional one was and fuzed most of the things for the back.
It was also my lucky day... As I got an ENTIRE ROLL OF FUZING (say about 20 meters) for £10!!! (The shop didn't want to measure out 8 meters O_O)
The Helmet! (Posted 1st June 2009)
This was a bugger to put on =_=
The green filter is going to be very difficult... As the perspex material is too stiff, and green flim is too fragile ._.
Back Template... Done?!!? (Posted 1st June 2009)
OH LORDY! IT'S ALMOST DONE! O_O
I just need to re-make the spine and fuze everything and it's ready to paint O_O
/Going ahead of schedule... By about 2 months xD
MOAR POWER! (Posted 1st June 2009)
My iron needs more power xD;;; It's doing th job with the interfacing, but it takes a LOT of weight and time to fuse onto the foam...
Other than that... IT'S GOING WELL O_O
Helmet Vr. 2! (Posted 31st May 2009)
This just needs fuzing with interfacing and it's ready to paint!
New Back Plate! (Posted 31st May 2009)
After about 8 / 12 hours straight I have a new back plate to work on!
I've found out that I can fuse ultra stiff interfacing onto craft foam! This saves me a LOT of time and money :D
The shoulder pads were HORRIBLE to make a pattern of, and they're not complete yet... I'll be working on them for a while XD
Flower pot idea = FAIL! (Posted 31st May 2009)
It... Just... Didn't... Work ¬_¬
Aflob alob alob? (Bill & Ben; The Flowerpot Men) (Posted 30th May 2009)
THE ARM BRACELET THINGS!
THEY COULD BE FLOWERPOTS!
I'll just cut the bottom out, stick my arm though and make the rest of the shape with craft foam!
This should save me a LOT of time and foam :D
Step Into My Mind... Mind The Gap =_= (Posted 30th May 2009)
It seems I can't think in 3D ¬_¬
I've already used 4 meters of foam too D:
I'm currently re-working on the spine and back plate xD
Arm & Wrist Guards (Posted 26th May 2009)
I've made a start on the arm and wrist guards... These are simply held on by sheer clamping down force, not anything else XD
My plan will be to have the fu protruding out of any holes / gaps in these to make the effect of fire being pushed forth out of them!
REVIVED! (Posted 25th May 2009)
I still havn't found the cloth... But I'm doing this for the October expo XD
=_____________________= (Posted 8th May 2009)
I want to make this... ¬_¬
I REALLY WANT TO MAKE THIS!
I need some help though >>;
Taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaab, Xaraelllllllllllllllll, you two are the only people I know that might even attempt this... XD
How much for some help? :3
Bugger (Posted 14th February 2009)
The fur that I NEEDED for this has stopped being made, thus... I can't make this one without it. I'm having to revert back to making the monk now =_=
Sorry everyone >>
IT BEGINS! (Posted 21st January 2009)
Urk. I chose a hard one... I mean... A CHALLENGE!
Well, I saw this character on Wikipedia... And I thought... Why not? O_o
It;s going OK so far, it;s the first time I;ve used craft foam and it;s interesting stuff! I;ve cut out a basic suit back pattern with tails ( as suits are my only forte ¬_¬ )...
I;ll need to trim it into a more slimline shape soon ( I;m not looking forward to the posibility of spoiling it ) and make the fur suit.
Oh joy... A fur suit... O_O?!?
HOW THE HECK DOES ONE MAKE THESE?!?!??!!?!?!!?!
/Is planning on buying a boiler suit and using that for a pattern.
The hardest part of the armour would be the 3D bits... So basically 99.9 % of it ¬_¬ The horns on the mask are causing real headaches as they are a 3D tringle... On a curve O_o
Other than that I have this left to do:
Back of torso
Probably lots more that I have yet to notice ¬_¬...
Wish me luck... Please... I BEG OF YOU!
/Flops due to exhaustion
