22nd May 2012: Almost There! Haven't bothered to update this as haven't really had the time but I may add some entries at a later date if anyone wants to know how anything was made =)
So i'm very almost finished! Got a lot done over the past weekend thanks to Sweeturk who came down to help me out. Weathered all the armor, finished painting my gauntlet, made & painted the armor for the boots, made the top & cape, cut my fur for the chest piece & have glued everything to my belt with the exception of the fur. My dad also finished my staff and made straps for most of the armor.
So all I have left to do is:
-Glue the fur to the back of my belt
-Attach straps to my armor (shoulder spike & one leg of armor)
-Sew silver clasps onto the top
-Secure fur to my chest piece
I have until Thursday afternoon to finish everything so should be fine =)
Also decided I'm going to use a wig rather than my own hair, I know my hair is short enough but its a different style to default Hawke's and just think it will be less hassle on the day. I'm using my black one I originally used for my Lenalee cosplay, my mum's hairdresser has kindly cut it for me as well so it sits better, just needs a bit of hairspray to keep the fringe in place.
Getting really nervous for expo now!
