Rondo - Eternal Sonata





This costume has been put entirely on hold... long story. I might make it at some point, as I've already started :)

Nice shoe. What material did you use to make the armour parts?

I used Roll matt foam.... yes, those camping rolls that you put under your sleeping bag! its a very thin one, and I have no idea where you can get them from anymore! The one I have was from a Pound shop, which is now closed! I think camping shops are now selling thinner ones like this, but for high prices =__= i.e. £7ish... which, ok, isn't that expensive, but they are useless when they're that thin.. sleeping on them-wise. But they're good for making light armour, but it has its limitations, and gets damaged easily, dents and so on.

I really hope you do finish this one day, because that shoe is brilliant! I can't believe this is your first armour too! *_* [Roll mats, eh? It's really helped me with how to make my secret cosplay! Thank yooou! X3 ]

Hehe thank you Special-Pleb ^_^ I probably will finish it eventually, just got obsessed with summit else, and I lost interest in this... heh ^_^ Glad I could help with the roll matt thing! You'll have to let me know how that secret cosplay goes for you ^_^ (oh, I also made pacificas shoulders out of roll matt, it was a thicker one though and covered with fabric)

This will look beautiful. Eternal Sonata generally is, anyway.
