|I am doing this for the Eternal Sonata group for London MCM Expo in May 2010.|
I quite like her style and would love the challenge to do a character that isnt cosplayed often. Recently been playing Eternal Sonata and loving her action phrases especially *Unicorn Horn*
Wig has been commissioned from Sephnoir. Gauntlet has been made with a craft foam base and covered in paper mache. It is now painted silver, and also found a grey under glove. Bracelet is completed, needs a quick re-paint but that can be done nearer the time of the expo. On to the main costume.
Main costume is now officially completed, this includes sleeves, cape and the main body of the costume. Boots are now in progress and have little details to do now. The belt is now on the way to being completed just abit of silver paint.
Wig has arrived and looking lovely thankyou to Sephnoir for that.
Now completed and ready to go after 3 days on and off it is the first weapon I have ever attempted and Im really proud of it. She was incredibly uncomfortable due to the suspender, once that was gone it was much easier to move around :D Hurzah! The hardest part was the boots as all Eternal Sonata characters have ridicious shoes... ¬_¬
Made some changes for MCM Expo and she was very comfortable to move around in and the suspender stayed in place, just wanted to put some photos up to show her in all her glory with everything still on :D
Due to so much damage she is now retired from the cosplay scene
|Sleeves and cape||Medium||Complete|
Claves's sword (Posted 27th March 2010)
Due to a let down by a commissioner me and my dad have been tackling this weapon ourselves :S its been alot of hard work.
Then dad found some hard wood and cut out two flower shapes (see middle top)
Abit of white and burgandy paint on the rose's frame, found some green and red acetate to make the coloured inserts. This was perfect as it looks like a stain glass window in the reference picture. (see middle bottom)
Now to stick it all together and make the final silver details and put the bandage looking ribbon on the sword and viola it is complete :)
Time so far: 9 hours +
Claves completed? (Posted 9th March 2010)
Well.. Claves is nearly completed I can see the light ^^
My wig is finally here and its gorgeous it fits really well and I love it sooo much I can't wait to try everything on :D Thankyou Sephnoir
If all goes well it will be debuted at Minamicon if not it will be at MCM Expo in May :D
Get Set Cape (Posted 11th February 2010)
complete the cape today yay! last piece of the main costume to be done.
Bits and Pieces (Posted 1st February 2010)
Havent done alot to Claves for a while and so very slow progress at the moment..
Sleeves are half completed, got to do red ribbon and the triangles on the tops to do. Cape is still in pieces at the moment but should be done by the end on the week.
Armoured Boots (Posted 9th January 2010)
Yesturday I decided to start Claves Boots as these are the other main piece of the costume.
Covered some charity brought shoes with the base and the top cover of the boot, ran out of glue sticks so have to get more before I can do any more.
Done the calf pieces of the boot, as well as the centre piece at the front, all needs glueing before starting the paper mache part once again.. :(
Time so far: 4 hours +
And it begins... (Posted 23rd September 2009)
I have recently completed a pattern for claves, and have sew the fabric pieces together to create half the outfit... there are more things to be done like the belt around her waist and her boots. The sleeves are cut just need to get some white elastic and sew them together :)
pictures coming soon once I retrieve a camera
Gauntlet 2 (Posted 28th July 2009)
An update on the gauntlet, found some grey gloves in a charity shop, and found a flower brooch for claves belt pouch piece. The gauntlet is now papermached and drying for the night before I will attempt to paint it...
SO far on Gauntlet: - 2 days
Gauntlet (Posted 28th July 2009)
Started abit early with the gauntlet as I thought it would be the hardest thing for Claves :)
I havent found a glove yet which would be the basis for the gauntlet, however today I have paper mache the pieces so my hot glue lines wont be seen (they are abit aweful)
Onto the drying and hopefully the painting in the near future.
Wig Commissioned (Posted 26th June 2009)
I have asked Sephnoir to make my wig for me as I have not alot of experience with wigs and would possible ruin it to the core... so this was definately the best option for me.. should be picked up in the next couple of weeks and should be progressing with the gaunlet soon too...
