Midlands (Posted 16th February 2013)

I apparently have special eyes. #mybrand!
My contacts failed on the test wear the night before - and my fangs also failed to set :sob:
Still, worked out the kinks in the costume and will be back in May with everything smoothed out =]

Go go go (Posted 15th February 2013)

More wefts added into the wig - now awaiting its final trim and styling
Resin casts for the orbs have failed for the 5th time now so I found an alternative method using papermache bases.
Also 'boots/leg warmers' took surprisingly ages since I decided to build it around foam bases to give it the thick supporting appearance - atlike4amsob

Progress (Posted 14th February 2013)

Tunic is now lined with a little stitch pattern incorporated
Shoulder belt has been made and added and the straps and clips for the many pouches.
I can surprisingly move easily enough - although chairs are a bit bothersome

Pouches! (Posted 13th February 2013)

Costume has a total of 11 pouches including the large one on the back
I made a functional pouch to begin with but it looked floppy and untidy even after stuffing and structuring round a cardboard base so I tried using a polystyrene block - which turned out much better, and more uniformed like the animation.
So it was off to the garage with a hack saw and lots of white balls and stitching later I was burning my fingerprints off with the glue gun~

I recycled some of the left over 'buttons' I made for my Skyward Zelda costume last year for the clips after giving them a new coat of silver paint

Wefts (Posted 11th February 2013)


#Still in progress!
When I'm done I'm hoping to have the centre parting smoothed over with some extra wefts etc.

Wig progress (Posted 10th February 2013)

Some shots from the mini tutorial I put together to guide our Tygra's process
I've now finished adding the light brown wefts to both sides, now what remains are the darker wefts and then styling.

First time for everythingg

Tunic part1 (Posted 25th January 2013)

It begingsss - so many uncertainness with the references - it changes in every image including the official reference. Dx
Back pieces have been folded to give the impression - nothing cut or measured yet in terms of the back slit or join~

Doubled up to strengthen the colours and give it a pratical feel

WIG (Posted 25th January 2013)


Leggings (Posted 24th January 2013)

I doubled up some black cotton lycra // pretty basic
Notmuchelsetosay. Leggings. HOOOO

Bits and teeth (Posted 4th January 2013)

Fangs and claws. Cady lace wig bought in blonde for the base wig!
