|Cost :||Too much|
|Time Taken :||Too Long|
|Complete, and worn at MinamiCon 18 for a grand total of an hour.|
Words do not describe how glad I am to have finally finished this costume after so many years ><
-Lining a garment
-Pattern drafting (dem crazy sleeves)
New techniques tried:
-Raised details on the armour
-Trim (on everythinggg)
Things still to improve:
-Nothing, as I will never be returning to this costume.

So it didn't get finished in time for Alcon, but it was a near miss. So much of it doesn't fit/isn't comfortable, so I'll probably remake parts of it/modify it. I also have the wings to deal with still, although a bought a cheapo pair from ebay. I need a third pair of replacement tights, because I managed to put holes in my new pair when I tried it all on for five minutes on the Sunday morning. Bah!
I shouldn't have attempted this costume until I was more skilled, and now I'm kinda paying for it. Its a good learning experience though?
Over a year of work, the end is in sight! (Posted 27th August 2009)
Some progress photos coming this weekend, I'm finally finishing bits up. I need to remake the lining and finish bits here and there, then I have a week til Alcon to work on the wings with my finacé. We haven't yet figured out the moving mechanism, so this set will be stationary.
