Description
Now face the mighty Bison.

Version 2 of my M. Bison cosplay. I learned a lot from making the original, and there are some elements I'll be able to take over from it.

Plan of action:

* Remake all the armour. Don't worry about making it thick, folder over worbla will do fine

* Remake the jacket. First version was great, but I can make it better

* New boots. Wellies were fine, but I think proper boots will perfect it

* Cape

If all goes well, it should be done for Minamicon 20 in 2014

EDIT: MCM Expo will be the last con that I wear this particular version of M. Bison to, there will be massive upgrades for 2015 con season.

Definitely, we could have a terrible fake fight where I realise I am not as flexible as I used to be. And neither can I shroud myself in flame and fly across a room

Armour painting (Posted 4th March 2014)

Armour is just about complete. Need to touch up a couple of bits along the edges and add straps and velcro and such.

They're...not perfect. There are uneven coats of PVA glue, paint drips and warped bubbles from heating. They're still a hundred times better than my last attempt, and I've learnt a lot about more advanced worbla crafting in the process

Armour crafting (Posted 23rd February 2014)

Starting this a few weeks later than I planned, causing a small panic as I thought I had a lot less worbla than I hoped. Turned out I had just enough for the two spaulders and the two vambraces, what I originally planned on.

However, now I might not be able to get worbla in time for the new versions of the greaves. Next step is priming and painting, which should hopefully not take too long
