As always I make the construction more difficult with each new project I undertake so this time the challenge will be the digigrade stilts, however with the aid of the YouTube vid I've put on this I should hopefully get it sorted ^w^

Craig's looking forward to carrying this |D LMAO! This is gonna be really awesome m'dear, I hope it goes well for you! The idea of the robes is a nice one :)

GoldieNeko posted on 29 November, 2010 - 20:42
LMAO No, I hope that this one won't be as large as the Waltz, so the things such as horns ect will be attatched to the wig and hopefully the stilts will be comfy enough for me to use pretty much all day. I'll just need someone to help me with ballance from time to time I recon, if not then a nearby wall will do to prevent me from falling on me arse XD LMAO

By lord it's been yonks!

Well it has been a while hasn't it? Ifrit's nose has been finalised in style and the didigrade stilts are closer to completion. I should be able to get started on the horns soon so I shall keep ya posted!

15th January 2011

YAY For new neighbors destroying the inside of their house!

It means I get free wood! Which means I have have spent a total of £18.00 on materials for the didigrade stilts for Ifrit and said money was spent on Wood Glue, Cable Ties, Washers and my favorite tool Gaffer Tape 8D The wood, screws, draw runners, upholstery foam, base shoes and flip flops I've been able to yoink for nearby sorces for FREE! However shaping said pieces is harder than one could anticipate. The base pieces need to be shapped into roughly a 40 degree slant, which means I have had to saw and hack away at roughly 3 inchs of wood. Which is very tiring work to be honest with you.

However I have three out of four pieces done so hopefully I'll get the fourth done soon and the rest of the didigrade stilt construction will go smoothly. I've had to make a few alterations as the shows I am using have a steel toe place which goes through the whole of the underside of the foot, save the thick rubber base. So hopefully I will get a hell of a lot of screws and glue to attatch the shoe to the wood and it won't shift about and stay secure as I walk.

I've also started working on the Kabuki style wig for Ifrit which I'm making from scratch and I think this will proove the most costly and time consuming part of this particular Cosplay.

7th January 2011

Wii Fit FTW

Okay I looked back on my previous Cosplays that involved skin tightness and noticed one MAJOR thing. I am quite a chubby lil lass, however! I wouldn't say that I dislike my weight, oh no, just the way it can appear if shot at the wrong angle. Thus I came across a somewhat brilliant solution, since I am too poor to join and gym and too self concious to go jogging. My family got a Wii Fit for Christmas. I recon that if I manage to get a good 30 mins worth of exersize on that each day (that I'm not in northampton with me Lover) then I'll get myself a nice tonned stomach for Ifrit!

4th January 2011

Concept Model

As I sit waiting for my second attempt of Ifrit nose to dry I noticed a small lump of left over clay and thus I began to mold and tweek and thus the miniature foot was created. The image is hopefully a rough three dimentional guideline as to how I'd like the didigrade stilts to be covered and look when completed, not including the fured lower leg covers that were shown in my concept sketches.

2nd January 2011

If at first . . .

Okay the first attempt at Ifirits nose is COMPLETE! 8D Only problem is the eyebrows are too small to fit my face 8S Which means it is back to the sculpting block and I shall begin the process again. This time I shall get the consistancy of the plaster right, the sizing of the sculpture right and get the layering of latex sorted. Some parts wound up a wee bit thick from where I was a bit over zealous with the latex. I was so worried it would tear when it came to taking the thing out of the mould that now there's an obvious seam when it sits upon my face 8s SOLUTION! Make a large face cast so that way the latex can be thick where it needs to be then spead out to a thinner part where it can be attatch to the face without looking like i have odd looking scars around me face LMAO

30th December 2010

Fabric!

As I sit here nomming on my clementine (sp?) I have just purchased the fabric I've been watching for the past 6 weeks for my Ifrit Cosplay! I won't be needing much of it so hopefully I've bought enough of it to suit my designs. I really do like the multi-coloured nature of this fabric which I think should go well with my ideas for the main wig.

The nose of ifrit is still underway as liquid latex is drying in the plaster negative I made last night. I think it'll just be a protype so I can learn from my mistakes and make the real thing look at least 10 times better than how this one turns out.

27th December 2010

CHRISTMAS PRESSIE!

XD My lovely lover made my Christmas! He got me a latex prostetic making kit! Which means I can start working on Ifrits face features which I had been pondering about for quite a while. Mainly the nose since I have a fairly small human looking nose so thus far I'm working on a proto-type to see how it'll look with a larger nose piece and eyebrow extensions.

13th December 2010

Paper Mache And Chains

Okay so far so good, I need to do a few more layers of paper mache of the nails for Ifrits claw. I;ve also managed to get the first wrist guard underway and get a chain connected to it as well. Fingers cross I keep progressing at this pace and keep to budget.

25th November 2010

One of the many reason why I love my Lover <3

I've actually been able to start working on this! OMFG I didn't think I'd be able to work on this til the new year! BUT! My lovely lover had a shifty of all his old stuff the other day and asked if I wanted his old graduation robes. YOINKED! Of course I was over the moon to take them off of his hands, mind you I hadn't had my plan for Ifrit at the time so it just got shifted underneith my bed. I am not once to waste a good sorce of material especially when it is a nice black & red silk! So yeah I just need to sew a couple of bits together by hand, since my sewing machine area has currently been commerndeered (sp?!) by my mother for paper work. Ugh, numbers must avoid numbers! Sewing said bits together will hopefully give the robes more of a body and flowy-ness then I just gotta figure out how the heck I'm gonna get the red pannels on without having to completely gut the robes and remake em from scratch. Which would be farr to much time since I've already spent a good three hours picking off the stitching that was in the way of progress! XD Also beaded up a prototype for Ifrits necklace, tisn't complete and may change dependant upon what I decide to do with it closer to MCM Expo May 2011. I'll try and get progress pics up ASAP but most likely won't happen for a couple more days since I'm also trying to figure out bits for Fairy Alice as well 8S why do I have the thought that I may have over stepped my own expectations this time!?
