|OMG OMG OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M DOING THIS!!!|
I adore Brienne of Tarth.
She is boss!
She is a bad ass!
She is full of sass and I will explode if I don't cosplay as her XD!
Only problem being, I'm 5 foot 3...but I am working on this :P
Arm Test (Posted 11th August 2013)
Next I’ll be working on the chain-mail-esque jumper and the belts :3
Gold bitches! (Posted 5th August 2013)
Gold armour pieces are cut, glued and now sprayed. Now for the monotonous task of dry-brushing-the-crap out of each piece to get the weathered detail -_-
Utilised my car parking space for making cosplay |D
getting there though. All the silver pieces are done too. Once the dry brushing is done I can actually start attaching it all together *flails*
Armour update (Posted 27th July 2013)
Armour is coming along nicely. Almost all the pieces (albeit the chest) have been glued and ridges put in place. The Neck pieces are almost complete and the Pauldrons have been glued together. Everything’s looking a bit meh and colourful at the moment lol but once its all sprayed it will look better :)
spraying will commence tomorrow…8D
Playing with Foam (Posted 25th July 2013)
Finished most of the card templates now. Just the main body to do.
To get the ridges on the armour I’m using a hot glue gun as it dries clear and flexible, whilst giving a 3D effect. Once the glue dried, which didn’t take long at all, I started the spraying, which is killing my arm -_-.
Getting started (Posted 25th July 2013)
So my big cosplay for Ayacon is Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones. Its especially challenging as its mostly armour but I’ve worked on armour before when making Lin Bei Fong and so really wanted to push my cosplay ability.
So to start off I sketched a very rough plan of each of the armour elements such as pauldrons, vambraces and shin guards, working out measurements as I went along.
