Costume Information

Time Taken : 2 months

My first proper attempt at Cosplay. I'm quite happy with the main part of the outfit but i'm having some difficulty getting the armour right. I spent weeks on the embroidery and i'm quite happy with the result but some of it was ruined at Comicon as we ended up having to sew the armour to me in order to keep it on. I'm rather annoyed by that but hopefully i can fix any problems and get it sorted out in time for the Expo in London in October

Unfortunately due to the armour being made out of papermache it got badly damaged and I had to scrap all the armour pieces apart from her bracelets which were the only things that didnt get any damage whatsoever, for the day we hot glued as much as we could so it didnt fall apart and it worked until the very end of the day LOL!

Surprisingly the armour wasnt too uncomfortable, one detailed costume I didnt actually have to suffer in XD which was a nice change, I also had problems with the leg armour... I havent figured out a solution to stop the problems from happening yet :S

yeah, penelo was my first attempt at cosplay, in hindesight should have done an easier one but i plan on revisiting her in the next few months and fixing all the armour properly so that it'll fit now that i've actually got everything that I need.

Leg armour (Posted 20th July 2010)

Wore htis costume to LFCC but I had major issues with the leg armour. It wouldn't stay and it kept falling off. Copious amounts of Double sided tape didn't seem to work. I'm thinking about attaching all the armour to knee high boots and putting everything, denim, foam and leatherette onto the boots. Just need to find the right pair of boots now that are comfortable. Hopefully it will work
