Recent Progress Journals

Spear of Justice


So this is from a good couple years ago but i never finished this cosplay and never posted progress photos so im doing so now in hopes i remember to pick this costume back up and finish it someday



Been working on remaking my prop bombs for my link cosplay, also working on a DIY video of how to make them.

Improvements made


Old costume, but made some improvements. Found some yellow contacts with my prescription, given the wig a well needed haircut and repainted the forehead. Repainting the shoes, and bought some better make up and a new severed hand prop.

Nearly done


Last parts being added and I am making a new tie
