8th August 2012: FINISHED CAN I GET A VICTORY FANFARE PLEASE?!
Okay, I'm pretty happy. Can you tell?
Okay, there are a couple of things I want to approve after AmeCon.
1. The boots. You may have noticed that despite being marked as "complete" the boots are still in progress. That's mainly because with the modifying I was doing on my current boots... well I wasn't happy with them. I knew they'd look better unmodded but more inaccurate so I left them like that. I plan to change them to wear at another convention so they look better. But for Ame, they'll do.
2. The buckles. As you can see from this photo... well.. they look like what they're made out of :P (if you're thinking cardboard, it's actually very stiff interfacing but yeah) My original plan was to cut them out of balsa wood but WOULD MY CRAFT KNIFE CUT IT? No. So I had to improvise last minute. I may use some over clay next time, as I'll have more time to experiment. I'm not too happy with the buckles but like the boots, they will do for AmeCon.
Otherwise, I'm pretty darn happy with this cosplay.
