19th May 2009: Day 18 Basicly finished everything except the feet armour and the capes.
11th May 2009: Day 15 Painted the sword, moulded the shoulder pads part 1 and fibre glassed the elbo armour. The covered the elbo armour in filler.
22nd April 2009: Day 14 Painted the upper leg armour parts along with the sword layers. I also put the handle in the sword, doing this I did break it so I had to fix it with filler. I also fixed the triangle sections to the knee armour.
20th April 2009: Day 13 Filled the sword with expandy foam to give more stability. Sanded the sword, sword pieces and the upper leg armour. Then covered all these with filler.
10th April 2009: Day 12 Repainted the body, and done some more fibre glassing on the sword parts. Also fibre glassed the pointy knee pieces.
10th April 2009: Day 11 Fibre glasses the sword, and created the mould for the shoulder pads. Covered the body with a protective clear paint, however this took off the shine so I will be repainting the body.
27th March 2009: Day 10 prt2 Painted the body.
27th March 2009: Day 10 Primed the body and filled the holes found with pva and primed again. Also cut the shoulders so I can get in it, though this did scrap the f**k out of my ears :'(
27th March 2009: Day 9 Primed and painted the little skirt pieces and small arm pieces.
16th March 2009: Day 8 Fillered the small arm pieces, fake layers on the skirt and grieves. Sanded all these pieces and started to hand sand the costume to make it super smooth.
15th March 2009: Day 7 Added the layers to the 'Skirt', fibre glassed the top leg armour pieces and added and sanded some more filler.
7th March 2009: Day 6 Main body section fillered and sanded down.
7th March 2009: Day 5 Main body section fibre glassed.
18th January 2009: Day 4 Fibre glassed the top side of the arm guards and started the body, but the temperature is causing problems.
5th January 2009: Day 3 Today the total time racked upto around 13 hours.
We completed the lower leg armour pieces, the knee armour pieces, started and failed the shoes and started the elbo armour pieces.
3rd January 2009: Day 2 Today we completed the outer skirt, the lower skirt, the grieves and the thigh sections.
Total costume time so far around 9 hours.
3rd January 2009: Day 1 prt 2 Finished the 'under arm guards'. These took about an hour.
Also tried and epicly failed the shoulders, now going to mould them.
1st January 2009: Day 1 After nearly 5 hours I (and Wayne) have managed to do the base for the chest piece.
Also I have managed to make a cast of my legs to able me to make the leg pieces without someones help.

Hey! I'm thinking of doing this version too! It'd be really cool, maybe we should swap armour-making tips or something? When you planning on making it? ^^ Can't wait to see! Gilgamesh = Awesome! :D

Hopefully I will have the sword together tomorrow. The whole costume is not perfect and tbh I was hoping it would turn out better but I have to go with what I have got. I cant find a wig anywhere tho and its causing a majour panic atm.
