Power arm progress is looking good - are you planning on painting the yellow glove underneath? Some exposed wires at the joints might look cool too :D

Tanks for the input madmazda86 the exposed wire is such a good idea, was planing to dirt it up and do a black and yellow hazard type thing, but I think I will do a combo of the two. :)

I'd say I hope I see you around Thought Bubble, but looking at the progress pics it'd be hard not too. This looks impressive so far, can't wait to see the final product. :D

Journal retrospective (Posted 4th November 2013)

Really haven't bean using the journal to its full potential, so am posting a bunch of retrospective posts to show the proses I went throw. Plan to keep up to date in the future
First the hand and arms :)
Using 2mm eva and a hot glue gun I made the fingers, 3 sections for each. The back of the hand is much softer 6mm eva (camping mat density). The studs are cut down upholstery tacks.
I then tapped the whole thing together using double sided Sellotape I found I had to cut down many of the finger pieces to allow for ease of movement. I then removed them and sealed with PVA glue and sprayed using automotive paint. The ageing was done using black acrylic paint.
Finally the whole thing was assembled onto a gardening glove using a hot glue gun, thanks to a suggestion by madmazda86 I also added exposed wiring made from coloured EVA in to the gap between the back of the hand and fingers

Forgot that these existed (Posted 26th September 2013)

Sum better photos of my first attempt. + today I got new material to do new hood, cape and "skirt" and am well on the way with right arm and both shoulders progress pics to follow :)

Change of plan (Posted 16th September 2013)

Was thinking that as I have now decided to make the compleat armour of the tech priest the original cloak will hide to much. So back to the fabric shop for me.

Picking up the pieces (Posted 21st August 2013)

Hi all who reed this, my name is cy and I'm planing to resurrect a cosplay from sum time ago.
The first time I tried to do this I had never cosplayed before and was never happy with the costume. So i have decided to try again.
Have a bit of a head start by taking the good pieces from the old costume. The plan is to build the armour and servo-arm from EVA foam. The cloak is from the old one but will need further work to bring it up to the standard I want.
Don't think it is realistic to have the how thing don in the short time I have, so it may end up being first worn later in the year, thought bubble is more likely that GW's Games Day.
The pic is of the first attempt included for later comparison.
