3rd October 2011: Re-Makes and Progress So quite a few updates on this now.
I've finally started work on the props, and hope to have these finised for Replay Expo in November. The shield (seen left) is coming along nicely and is now just waiting on details and painting.
I've also finally ordered my chain rings so fingers crossed I'll have that done soon too (as I'm only doing the visible parts to save rupees). In time I'd like to make a full chainmail shirt, but we'll see what happens. Up to this point I've been using a fabric alternative which I found in a shop, and although it looks decent I'll be glad to get rid of it!
Anyway, I gave in and bought a proper compression shirt which arrived this morning and I've been working on make-up so I'm hoping to fool a few people next time I cosplay!
Last update is that I'll be re-making a majority of the costume, starting with the tunic and hat!
8th August 2011: Updated: Wig and Ears. The wig I had originally intended to use for this cosplay finally turned up and with a little styling all will be well one again.
I'm going to ask my hairdresser for help with this since I know I'd make such a mess of it.
As well as my new wig I also bought some new ears, or ear tips to be presise. The ones I had were awful and huge, not to mention uncomfortable, the new ones are already looking a lot better. I'll have some photos up for you soon!
On a side note I've decided to embroider the design on the tunic that was originally done in fabric pen, as it'll look much better this way, but since I'm doing it by hand it may take some time. Wish me luck!
