How did you get the visor in the exact shape and curve? Was it custom made?

KrEid posted on 16 August, 2009 - 19:37
Got a shield visor (the type on security hemlets) used a blowtorch to heat and bend the plastic

I'm really impressed with how this turned out :D Well done

KrEid posted on 11 September, 2009 - 20:41
Thanks :D To be honest I never actually though it would turn out that good, but I'm glad people think so :D

Odd-One-Out posted on 11 September, 2009 - 20:54
I was really intrigued as to how you'd approach a difficult costume with these techniques. Suffice to say, they have been carried out very well and I like the final result very much!

KrEid posted on 11 September, 2009 - 20:58
Aww :D Thanks to everyone though for all the support and encouragement. Definately love the world of cosplay now :D

Moonchild posted on 11 September, 2009 - 21:31

Wig is here

And it's bloody beautiful. I think I'll replace my normal hair with it ^-^

Jaw completion

Ok so the jaw now has filler on it that is hardening. This will fill the gape left from the foam and give it a nice, smooth texture.
Also, the sword and knives now have silver colour and also a grip, so all thet needs to be done is repainting the black areas and also adding the loop to the end of the sword. As for the armour, one of the legs is coming along nicely, but the other is still to be started. If I have time, I'm going to buy more foam and build up the chestpiece of the armour, if I run out of time, I'll just have to keep the trench coat closed.
