Ashley Graham (Armour ) - Resident Evil 4


Not sure if it'll be done for Kita but I've always wanted to give it a go and since I've now learnt how to work with Plastazote (after Claves) I think it's about time I gave it a go - but don't hold your breath it may take a long time so maybe more like expo oct '10 before its actually ready :(

Update 13/6/11
This cosplay been sat here for ages waiting to be made! My biggest problem was that I'm no good with craft foam. I can mould it but I fail at the painting and sealing stage. On cleaning out my multiple fabric stashes over the weekend I found some gun metal coloured pvc! I have never used it and it was simple bought for the sake of it! I also have a large box of foam which has been left over from various projects - now with a handful of split pins I've finally figured out how I'm gonna make this cosplay. Even though its a year over due expect to see this outfit winter '11.

Update 6/11/11
Ok so I rushed a version of this cosplay for expo masq. I'm happy with the overall look but needs a lot of work with adding fabric for engraving on the armor but will add this at a later date :)

Because I'm using fabric to make this armor I had to think hard on how I was going to engrave it. There were several options I could think of: 1. Draw on design with biro or acrylic paint 2. Cut out design in black pvc and add. 3. Cut out pattern in metal coloured pvc and add. Each method had its advantages and disadvantages. I've opted for using metal fabric with pattern cut out and added to armor.(Fingers crossed I have enough fabric to do this :-S)

Hand segment of gauntlets

I wanted the gauntlets to be fully articulate so I can actually grab and hold stuff while in this cosplay. I started with a plain black glove which I then added the gun metal pvc on top of. Each ring was measured to where there are joints in my fingers then hot glued to the glove.(I unfortunatly burnt myself a fair bit using this technique :-S) I am very happy with how they turned out!

Helmet starts to take shape

Okay due to work being a pain I only have three days to male this in instead of the original 7 I'd intended but here we go. Here is the basic shape for the helmet made out of plastazote and card. I will be covering this in a layer of pva and newspaper. I will then cover this in a layer of pva and polyfiller paste to harden (apologise for derp face). More progress to follow!
