Costume Information

Cost : £70

This costume is gonna be hard - with all the fidly bits of armour but I'm quite excited about it also as I've not made and outfit with this many accessories on before - think I'm gonna need to buy a lot or foam and maybe resort to using fimo again even though I'm not a fan :S


> Not much to report - ordered wig, have plastic rose from poundland, ordered plastic foam for the accessories. Not got much further then that with this outfit - probably because I'm at a loss to where to start :S But I think once the foam comes through I can start making the accessories and I'll get a move on with it :)


Defo need to redo the armour coz I didn't put any latex on the plastazote and all the paint has now come off - but no drama it survived a full evening of dancing - no wait got the strap ripped :( but overall it survived pretty well :) Will have pictures to follow :) and will get round to making a ver 1.1 soon :) With better armour :)

**UPDATE**VERSION 1.1**5/3/11**
Basic repairs made to armour; wig fixed to stick upright on top; basic sword made.

Still news to add some stuff to this but on its way to completion!!

I was at the Masquerade at Aya, and I thought your Claves cosplay was incredible, I'm planning on cosplaying Jazz in the near future.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS WAS ALL HAND SEWN!? When you said that, I was gobsmacked. It's brilliant though and you look stunning in it!

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. I'm hoping to do a version 3 someday by improving the armour boots :)
