It'll be interesting how you choose to go about making the arms here. I suggest you start a thread in General Costume chat and Critique about the arms. I'd love to see progression and offer ideas.

Thanks everyone, it's gradually coming together.

Nice solution to the bionic arms.

If you simply paper mache the craft foam and then spray paint it silver then it should have the same finish. hope that helps x.

silver footballs, genius^_^

Nice to meet you and congrats on your first cosplay. The arms looked really metallic esp outside in the sunshine. :)

The arms look amazing - love the fact you used footballs for them - such a brilliant idea. You looked great in the masquerade :D

I saw you guys at LFACC you all looked amazing. Was going to get a picture but by the time I retrieved my boyfriend and the camera I couldn't find you guys again

WarriorTeddy posted on 24 July, 2011 - 19:24
Thanks =) we were probably queuing up for the masquerade. Would have loved to see your Tonks costume

That is realy great for your first cosplay, keep up the good work :)

JaeXD posted on 2 August, 2011 - 10:48
Nice to see it all worked out for you. You've learned a lot in the process which is good. Are you looking to hold on to this character as a work in progress? It might be worthwhile as there aren't that many Jaxs out there.

WarriorTeddy posted on 2 August, 2011 - 11:32
Yeah, I've now learnt so much =) thanks again for your help with the planning. You're right, I will hang on to it and see if I can improve the design.

I saw you in the masq at LFCC and it looked fab! Can't believe this was your first cosplay, very well done :)

This is amazing!! Incredible idea on the footballs for shoulder pads!! Not seen any other Jax's, or Sonya's :( Well Done Major JAX

Progress Journal

6th July 2011

Arms completed

Following some heavenly advice from Lord Raiden, I stuck with craft foam for the forearms and applied paper mache over it. I then sprayed it and it came out quite well!!
I just have to work on my belt and I'm set for Saturday. Hurray!!

4th July 2011

Bionic Arms

The biceps turned out better than expected .... the forearms not so much. I used craft foam for the forearms but they seems to be out of sync with the rest of the arm. I'll try out leather on the forearms as it has a nicer finish to it...

27th June 2011

Triceps added

Have now added a second set of panels to the under armour. This is beginning to look like something from a bad 80s Sci-fi Tv show. lol.
Next up biceps ...

25th June 2011

Shoulder Panels

I've cut a cheap football into two halves, sprayed them and trimmed each to fit my shoulders. (Not yet sure what I'll do about the ridges in the football though)
