13th June 2011: Forgetfullness Ahhh, I just realised I completely forgot his leg thingy!
Leg thingy and extra hair for manchester then maybe!

31st May 2011: Getting high on Evostick Well I got Thor 95% complete, I've got a couple of details that I can still add if I fancy.

I finished covering all the armour segments in PVC late Thursday night and then took the sucker to Expo. Luckily Friday at the show was quite quite so I stole some time to assemble most of the costume - except the bits that had to be remade cos i'd covered them the wrong way around. did finaly have him workable by saturday morning so I defiantly wore him.

Found half an hour on Sunday for an upgrade in the form of some quick dry brushing for a gunmetal finish to parts of the armour.

On reflexion, this technique has proved a lot more complicated and time consuming than I was expecting but I got the costume done in a week of evenings and it's turned out damn fine.

24th May 2011: aaarrrhhh Ok I don't often admit this but it's not going to plan!
Ran out of glue and fabric last night and only managed to get the base pieces fronts stuck down since the glue I got was taking an age to cure.
Might be able to pull some cunning tricks with fabric offcuts but theirs still a hell of a lot to do.

23rd May 2011: Base layer Finally got this started and spent what time I could making all the base foam pieces of his armour. I'm going to use foam covered in PVC/leatherette for this one to see how it go's.

Bracers and Grieves proved relatively uncomplicated but the body armour is comprised of about 20 seperate but interlocking pieces. I'll only know if I've got all the proportions right once it's all covered and stuck together!

Tonight it's time to get glue happy.

Haha, do you remember the faces of the customers in the shop when you saw this and we discussed you 'doing' Thor - what a picture!

And erm - you will be wearing this at home too, won't you? *ahem* ;-)

Awesome Thor! Interesting to see how that method worked out, the different layers are more distinct, makes it look incredibly intricate!
