|Getting this together for Sunnycon 2013's masquarade now. Super excited to be making this, progess is going well and I just have my fingers crossed that my materials for the armour and cape will arrive with no trouble this week.|
Going to be wearing this for London MCM Expo May with nadsnadine as Raven, Kittz as Rita and Fred as Yuri on the Saturday!! ♥
Wanted to cosplay him since i got into the fandom this year XD;; started on him on a whim and looking forward to finishing * u *
Rework progress (Posted 17th May 2013)
Expo a week away so time to get this sorted haha. Completely redone the shoulder armour which i used a salad bowl as a base then papier mache'd and used used craft foam for the upperarm to attach it.
Planning to get the tunic done tonight ^^
Room for improvement (Posted 26th March 2013)
So back from Sunnycon and all I can say for Flynn is; there's still a lot of work to do for May Expo. Unfortunately the thigh pieces broke during the day so I went on stage without them an during transport the paint had flaked off in some places OTL So all armour is being redone, getting a new wig and Nadine is kindly making my sword for me to have at London ahhh <3333
All in all I enjoyed wearing him but there's still room for improvement!
Gauntlets (Posted 20th March 2013)
All done~ These were a lot of fun, but tiring, to paint. I'm super happy with them seeing its my first time doing anything like this.
Wig part 2 (Posted 18th March 2013)
Wig washed and dried, so I started styling for the past hour or so. I don't particularly like styling my own wigs purely because I suck so bad at it haha;;;; But luck seems to be on my side so far for Flynn?
Got to trim a bit more and style one of the sides more and the back and then I'll be finished with the wig ^^
Wig part 1 (Posted 18th March 2013)
Dyed my old white wig I used for Clear (buying him a brand new one) and wanted to save myself £18 haha.
Mum went out a got me some surgical spirit to mix with the FW acrylic paint I conveniently had round the house. I was pretty worried this was gonna go to shit seeing as I've never done this before, but it seemed to turn out nicely for me (thank god jfc)
Belt progress (Posted 16th March 2013)
Didn't want to waste time looking for a thick enough belth that looked exactly like Flynn's so I made my own. This was my first time using a grommet which was fun (HAMMER TIME!!)
All thats left to do is attatch it to the buckle I quickly made out of sculpty and thats the belt done too.
Tunic progress (Posted 15th March 2013)
Originally started yesterday but it was so goddamn awful I rage quit and didn't want to do it anymore, but I restarted today and I'm super pleased with the progress!
I painted the blue and used poly flex for the white, I really like the turn out. All thats left for the tunic is to sew the collar on and hem.
Starting~~ (Posted 12th March 2013)
Ordered fabric to start working on it this Thursday. Planned all of it out so I'm looking forward to it ^ v ^
