Information

Despite my love hate relationship with the series, this armour is totally sick and my friend Jonny is hopefully going to cosplay Ventus with me :D

This'll be my first costume that's pretty much 100% armour...
Thank God for craft foam!

...this armour is totally sick ... I know what you mean, really! By now I've almost finished the keyblade: last details and then latex moulding, fiberglass shaping, sandpapering, priming and painting. Good luck with your project!

GAINAX posted on 19 April, 2010 - 15:15
3 layers of Mdf jigsaw'd with A cilindrical saw blade for the circles. Had help from Jonny with the cutting! The templates were a bitch to design... So glad I don't have to go through this process again for a while :p

Progress Journal

moooooore armour

Started making some of the arger plates now, have been using mounting board to get a smoother, flatter finish an I think it looks pretty good! Exams approaching... Should really be focusing on those >.<

Just got the shoulders, boots and a bit left on thr gloves to finish!

3rd May 2010

More armour!

Been a while since I last updated. But yeah, got the keyblade out of the way. Took a long time to plan out the templates and jigsaw, but 'tis finally done. It's made out of MDF and PVC piping. So it's a fucking mission to carry one handed. Also fixed the helmet a lot since the last journal entry. Basically remade the jaw from scratch as it was waaaay too bulked out. And I've painted it all and added the ears and mouth piece! All that needs adding to it now is the visor which is curently underway!

I made more parts of the armour last night, the thigh plates and ankle blades!

Shall be working on the gloves today!

25th February 2010

Helmet stuff

constructed the back of the helmet today, it fits really well, I can't help shake the feeling it might be a bit too big. Have drawn in the rest of the helmet to give a sense of scale... Thoughts?

21st February 2010

this week

this week i have mostly been wanking

16th February 2010

More Jaw progress

Added the inner and upper jaw of the helmet now, Just need to paper mache these individual layers now and start applying gesso! :o

Also bought an alice band to strap to the inside so it fits me better!

11th February 2010

IT BEGINS!

Have been working on the helmet on and off recently together with Lucy's :D
So far it's pretty much a wire frame with mesh and masking tape, coated in paper mache. Going to be doing this to the rest of the armour and then will start adding layers of gesso to smooth the shape down. It&#039;s soooo tedious, but it'll all be worth it in the end XD

Here's a picture of the jaw and ears :D And my ugly housemate D:

16th January 2010

Planning begins!

So I'm thinking about mobility and comfort for a change with this costume! :o

Basically I&amp;amp;#039;m thinking of starting out with a basic body suit made of pleather, lined in something less sticky against sweaty flesh ;p Made of 3 seperate parts so I can move easier. Look at diagram NOW!

Piece 1 will be a pair of trousers that come up quite high with a zip at the back to get into. The upper part of the trousers from the groin will be made of read pleather and will create a red strip going up the front of the body suit when the second piece is worn.

Piece 2 will work like a corset with a zip at the front so I can hide it behind the chest armour.

And Piece 3 will be easy to slip on like a T-shirt or something but with a zip at the back of the turtle neck so I can get my head through, this should be hidden by the back of the helmet and armour straps however.

The armour is supposed to look kinda layered in the images so I think this method will add to the effect!

Time to go to Fabricland...
