Forearm... thingys (Posted 11th May 2013)

COG tags! (Posted 1st May 2013)

COG tags yaaaaay :D

under corset! (Posted 20th April 2013)

The corset i'm going to wear underneath! Just to make it nice and difficult for me to move.

LANCER. (Posted 18th April 2013)

This. Thing. Is. Amazing. Seriously. I can see why people marry objects.

Boots! (Posted 14th April 2013)

Boots are good to goooo!

Belt, Side parts and armour (Posted 11th April 2013)

sorry for the crappy quality photo! My computer is on it's way out -__- Anyway, I got the belt and leathery side bits done! I still need to add some pipey-lookin' bits (A* for vocab.) to the back of the armourand then hopefully it will be finished! I still have a load to do though, blah -__-

Getting there.. (Posted 10th April 2013)

We're getting there everybody! I love my lighty up shoulder straps :3

Gloves! (Posted 10th April 2013)

gloves done!

Trousers (Posted 5th April 2013)

Trousers 90% done!

finished breast plate! (Posted 3rd April 2013)

Ahhhh finally! I worked my ass off yesterday and managed to get the breast plate finished! Yes! Still need to do the straps and the back though, awwhh -____-

front belt finished (Posted 2nd April 2013)

finished the front of the belt!

finished the back part of the belt!

Belt front (Posted 31st March 2013)

front of belt progress!

Back and front progress (Posted 18th March 2013)

Oh my lord guys! The back is actually giving me much more grief than the front! anyway this is where I'm at so far, Really happy with the front and I think the back is shaping up nicely! *wipes forehead* This is really tiring!

chest plate re-done (Posted 13th March 2013)

I fixed the chest plate together properly and re-did the middle section, I think it looks better like this!

Chest plate progress (Posted 12th March 2013)

Okaaayyy chest plate is going well so far, I don't wanna jinx anything though! *Crosses fingers*. It's all just duct taped at the moment but i'll glue/heat gun it all together when I get a new glue gun - mine broke, sad times. It's pretty thick and hefty, I hope this goes well! D:

Wig! (Posted 11th March 2013)

Found this wig, I think it's perfect!
