Information

(Modified now she's complete)
Nefertimon has never really been cosplayed as far as I'm aware, despite her popularity in the series. I now understand why as she's been the hardest thing I've built to date! She is not just a quadsuit, but a winged creature who is semi human and this proved problematic with scale and costruction. I'm still of the opinion that her front feet didn't work.

Sadly, Nefertimon has been horrificly damaged since London Expo, though it was done through accident not malicious intent...She was being stored in a conservatory, wrapped in bubble-wrap, and a several kilo bag of soil was unwittingly placed on her mask. The mask overheated and has crushed inwards. Nefertimon is therefore on indefinite hold for future events until I've got the enthusiasm to spend a week reforming her face.

Yay! Nefertimon! :) I can't wait to see this! I've never seen her cosplayed before, so It'll be super to see her done. Kinda makes me want to do a Pegasusmon cosplay (If only I didn't already have plans for my May 2009 expo costume... :P)

Lament for a mask

As per usual I'm awful at updates.
She's finished and she was a joy to wear, despite the massive heat of the event and things going wrong last minute (like one wing sheering off right before going on stage!!). Thank you to everyone at the cosplay desk and everyone who was helping me out all day to get around, I'd not have made it without you guys. :)

Sadly as the title suggests, she's been horribly damaged and her facemask that took so long to make now needs completely reforming or remaking, I haven't evaluated it enough yet past 'oh gods she's broken...'.

Things to do before she goes out again:
-New wings!
-Scale down the front paws, they're huge
-Repair the face mask, if possible
-Furry leg covers for the shin/ankle as the joint between her feet and my legs is too bulky.

Wonderflex JOY

This. Stuff. Is. Awesome.
I was verynervous about using wonderflex for the first time on this costume, especially given the cost to get it (still cheaper than getting it from the UK, grr). I'm very happy I did!
Paper patterns are always worth the hassle, as is an understanding of dressmaking when doing female armour. It's nigh impossible to make the armour out of one sheet piece of wonderflex.

Erm, right, what am I doing again?

So. I go back to durham on the 5th of October.
London expo is 20 days after this.
I have to have Neferti mostly finished before leaving because time restraints due to working (argh 3rd year!) mean I probably won't/shouldn't be working on her that much. I've already put her legs together backwards once, and I'm nervously waiting on a bodysuit pattern to finish the waist-up plans for this stretch velvet monstrosity.

I really, really hope this works.
