12th October 2011: Progress so far My Kneesocks is the one making the clothing, so I can't say too much about the progress on them, but so far so good! We met up the other day for a body paint and wig test run, we look hillarious! XD Anyway, seeing as I am in charge of weapons, I better talk about them! Scanty's revolvers are complete now, I shall upload a photo to my props page soon! I am currently cutting out Kneesock's scythes, I'm hoping to finish them in the next few days providing the weather holds up so I can spray paint!
14th July 2011: Slight change of plan... SOMEHOW my sister (codename Eevee, my Kneesocks for this cosplay venture) has convinced me to let us do the demon/transformation versions of Scanty and Kneesocks instead of our original plan for the more demure school uniforms. This is either a very brave decision, or a very foolish one. Probably the latter as it will be worn in October! Wish us luck! :S

If you do this on the Sunday, I'd love a photo, I'm doing Kneesocks and haven't got a Scanty ^^
Eloraborealis - 14th July 2011
Sadly I'm doing Scanty on the Saturday as I am already commited to a group on Sunday :( However I am so finding you on Sunday to get a photo! :P
Nachtangel - 15th July 2011

you guys where sexy as hell XD
MattDark - 2nd November 2011
Nice to see you guys get up on the stage saturday, were awesome costumes.
(Hope I didnt stare too much when I helped you on and off stage)
Gotta say, I loved the look of the guns you had, did you just mod some plastic revolvers?
Eloraborealis - 2nd November 2011
Haha thanks a million for that, if you hadn't have helped I think I would have lost all of my remaining shreds of dignity! Oh if only there had been an award for most graceful stage dismount, I'd have won that hands down! XD And yes, they started life as cheap plastic water pistols, the extra bits were moulded over them with Fimo, I'm glad they worked out as I was just making it up as I went along!:P
MattDark - 2nd November 2011
Indeed, with the number jusy jumping off (some cauing us much worry) yours was certianly the most graceful exit :)
The revolvers definately worked out well. Looking at them, you wouldnt think they were water-pistols at all. As I said before, my first thought was that they were plastic, toy/model versions.
Certainly hope you do this costume again some time, might even have a working camera to get a pic for myself. And as others said, guy guys did indeed look damn sexy/hot as hell! ;D

Pandora-Chi - 3rd November 2011
O: I saw you and you looked so so amazing!!! The height and figure was just perfect between u and kneesocks!
sjbonnar - 16th December 2011

Really well done! You have the shape to show this off :D
animeaddict - 11th January 2013
This is gorgeous! You really suit her, and props on the props ;)
Could I just ask what sort of paint you used? and if you went with red tights or painted legs? x
Eloraborealis - 13th January 2013
@animeaddict Thank you! We used red Snazaroo body paint and set it with hair spray, it worked pretty well! We went with tights in the end as it was more convenient, and we managed to find some that closely matched the paint! Hope that helps! :)
