|For MCM May 2014. With mskitty as Blake, x-Blade-x as Yang, and typicaldarcy as Ruby. Also with Raika as Cinder and laurenlightning as Glynda.|
EDIT: lost my crown at some point during expo before any pictures were taken, which is more than a little irritating, so I'll have to remake it some day. Also need to fix a few of the issues that happened when I got caught out in the hail storm at expo, but those can wait for a rainy day (pardon the expression)
Rewear planned for MCM Comic Con May 2015. Gonna spiff things up and make sure I'm super happy with this costume~
Back detail (Posted 18th June 2014)
Just because I'm not sure any of the photos will ever show this off, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out~
Myrtenaster III (Posted 7th May 2014)
Finally finished! Pretty happy with how this has turned out, too!
Technically there should be a little dome on the end of the handle, which I'll stick on if I can find something that works. If not, it's not a huge deal.
Boots (Posted 26th April 2014)
Boots are all done apart from the red lining, which I'll put in at a later date once I actually get my hands on the fabric I'd like.
Hoping to finish off the petticoat tomorrow, before I focus on other cosplays for a while.
Make-up test (Posted 8th April 2014)
Wrong wig, but I was trying out colour more than anything.
I am super kawaii and nobody can convince me otherwise.
Myrtenaster II (Posted 4th November 2013)
Progress so far; the various components in the top left (they'll all be joined using a skewer, which hopefully means the barrel will be able to spin!), some 3D details on the guard in the top right, and the base of the pommel in the bottom.
As usual, everything is in the process of getting a coat of paper mache, because it makes everything stronger and is a pretty good base to put primer etc on top of. I used acrylic board for the base structures, sandwiching it between two layers of super hard cardboard stuff (I'm not sure what it actually is!) for the parts that needed to be extra stiff (aka the blade and the guards). The barrel consists of several small circles of acrylic board, with worbla making up the actual barrel. 3D details are all craft foam.
Myrtenaster I (Posted 2nd November 2013)
Made a start on Myrtenaster today, using a great tutorial I found on dA. Finding tutorials is always a great place to start, but I like to fiddle around with them a bit, so I'm pretty much only using the template that came with it (because it saves me so much hassle trying to work things out on my own!)
Pics as soon as I have enough progress that it's actually worth showing.
