Information

Wow Ina's outfit a lot more difficult than I first thought! Where to start!? I left things kinda last minute with this, wooops! [So last minute I was painting up till 2am Saturday night for Sunday expo AND finished the white jacket in the car...] >_< I think I was most annoyed at myself, my top armour and bow broke on the day of the expo so unfortunity I didn't wear it. I was so gutted >__< I plan to fix it all up though!!
I learnt loads from making this, though I admit I still want to do more armour cosplays in the future it has knocked my confidence in trying any time soon. Hmm I shall try again though! Overall I am so pleased with the work Ive put in for it, so its not going to be wasted at all. I WILL FIX AND WEAR IT! D<
[Stuck as complete for nooow~]

Aha thank you so much everyone!! ^^; @ Ryaoki: Yeah yeeah I say you're better at armour because its truue! xP Thankyou though! @ Stripey_dani: The armour was made from craft foam, covered in PVA and then painted. I think it definitely needed strengthening though, so if you do want to use that idea re-enforcing it is a good idea!! >_<

wow the armor is so good how do u do it lol nice

Charlie-Bear posted on 4 July, 2009 - 17:54
Aww thankyou again, the paint job on the armour did turn out ok =] @CheekyFlower: The armour is made from craft foam, you can heat it to bend it into place and when it cools it retains shape. I made templates out of newspaper first, then cut onto craftfoam, then bent/glued what was needed. Then finally covered in PVA glue to seal it then when that was dried painted it! Though I recommend using something to strengthen the foam, maybe a layer of cardboard under, lots more layers of PVA or buckram. It seems too weak on its own for things like leg armour. :/

Long time no update!!!

Wow coursework building up and oct expo growing closer I REALLY need to get a move on. Ina's my priority over Suu [As I can finish her in the car if need be whereas Ina I couldn't do that.] Wig has been ordered, needs strightening and styling. Let's PRAY it gets here on time! Im very worried about my bow as that beast is huge and i may end up tying it to the roof of the car?! O_O Most of the time consuming painting of armour is done so more things to the main outfit can be done now. Let's hope everything comes together in time!!
