I really have to point out that out of lots of people's props that I've seen, yours look the smoothest and most professional out of them all. There really is hardly any trace of newspaper.

Sands posted on 14 August, 2008 - 20:52
Thats because I cover my paper mache in paper pulp, sand it down for 2 hours, then add a lot of paint filler, makes it nice and smooooth so theres never any trace of newspaper, any rough lines showing is just thick acrylic paint =]

Progress Journal

10th October 2008


Spending 4 days in London to get this finished as I dont have the space or materials in Bournemouth.

Started the weapon today, the blade is cut out and is setting in a wooden pole as I type this.

I also finished all the little touch ups I needed to do on the armour.

Started to piece together the shin guards, there exactly the same as Hideyoshis accept they have lovely pointy knee caps on them oooo! All made out of buckram and craft foam (no pleather this time awes!)

Tomorrow I'm starting work on the tails, going to cut out all the patterns and hopefully have them all pieced together. So I can spend my last 2 days painting the shin guards and tails. And also the weapon! Though that might require another weekend in London. Time is not on my side it seems! sigh!

8th September 2008

Half way through?

Ok so I'm half way through this bitch now I think. I've done (in my opinion) the hardest parts which are the chest plates and leg armour. I've also cut out the majority of all my patterns now.

(I would say the headress is hard but I'd be lieing - I can make these things blind folded now! - This is...my 5th?!?, and thats just counting cosplay I've made loads for stage productions) ANYWHO...

I'v just come back from a long weekend in Liverpool to see La Princesse, the 50ft spider (with the rather hot French puppeteer team! - Fabia!) So I'm going to crack on with getting this costumes finished, well as much as possible in the next week and a half before I go back to Bournemouth.

Next thing I'm working on is the shoulder pieces so I can get some full head shots on the go for posters and the like etc...
