Yuri Lowell - Tales of Vesperia


Midlands MCM Expo 2011

2nd Place Midlands Expo


He's climbin' in yo windows, snatchin' yo people up.
Tryn' to kill 'em.
So y'all need to hide Ragou; hide Cumore.
And hide Barbos.
Cause he's killin' errybody out here.


Okay, serious entry time. Progress on Yuri is going well, Frazzy's helping me cut out the fiddly bits and in general because as most people know I should NOT be left unsupervised with sharp scissors.

Going to be grouping it up twice! Once for Midlands Expo and again for an on-site photoshoot around Easter time~ If the photoshoot can't happen then for whatever reason I hope to schedule it for Summer!

Group isn't completely settled yet, but at least Taruto is going to be the boy, Frazzy, Flynn and Yuka, Estelle. Hoping to drag Andy in as Raven, Emzone as Rita and Miss Bidoos as Kaufman at least 8D

'Kill people' is not low priority in Yuri's schedule, surely.

Fuck these boots, man. Can's be arsed to write about the ums and ahs right now. They need remaking for Kita.

make-up test

Okay, pretending to be one of the children of the corn aside, I had a whack at what make-up I'm going to employ for Yuri. Not sure if I got it right or not and it kind of worries me. Maybe it'll look a lot better when the wig is cut and styled and his clothes are on. Otherwise it's a bit of an 'um' moment, haha.

Bug eyes!

Well... Everyone knows Yuri has massively creepy bug eyes, definitely not suited to a 21 year-old man. So I got some black/purple circle lens! I have very pale eyes, so I'd need to get some contacts as to not look permanently spaced out, decided it might be an idea to get some bigger irises, too.... Yeah... Creepy bug eyes are creepy.

Spent last night re-doing all the pleather work on my jacket because I made a comnplete dogs dinner out of it the first time round. It's not really that much better this time, to be honest, but the machine hates pleather SO much that I can't face doing it again. Just need the shirt back after embroidery to put on the bias and zip and the obi and..... Then just got to hammer all the eyelets into the bootcovers.... Thankfully Frazzy has been kind enough to make my Blastia for me! I think my ineptness has shown though enough that she's taken pity on me and just done it herself, heh.

Another headache I've had is over the damn colour of these sleeves. They're that not-quite-purple-but-not-totally-burgundy colour in most references and the 1/8 statue. I gave up, settled on a nice burgundy, which I might end up brushing with purple if it bothers me more.

Okay. These boots, I've actually had nightmares about them, they're that awkward. Until.... One day I noticed on the high res scan.... ACTUAL SUPPORT! I went through all the initial planning of the weirly long trousers which had clips in them and this, that and the other... But not any more! I'm building them on the top of dark grey boots and they're going to have a black leather insert around the top and side now~

I spend a great deal of time trying to angle for references on Yuri's fell arm. Initially I REALLY wanted to carry around the Bone Slasher (and I still really do) because GIANT AXE HANDBAG but for future costumes and general awesomeness I'm looking into making Abyssion now. I think it'd match SO much better when I finish his Improvisionist costume! Whereas Bone Slasher will probably look better with Dark Enforcer, though I think it's a bit too unrefined for True Knight. /Anyway/, I've started hoarding references and ideas on how to build it up. Lots of paint, sanding and resin casting to get on with...
