28th September 2012: Paladin Progress So so pleased I attempted to make my own Paladin for this cosplay! It's pretty much finished now but it's taken me over 10 hours to complete.
I started with a wooden base cut from a basic template of the gun (about 4 sheets of wood stuck together). I then padded this out by cutting the outer, detailed layers out of foam and carving in the details of these with a craft knife. I used air dry clay to shape all the edges (and a hell of a lot of sanding). I primed with gesso and used spray paints for the base colour ( the handle is a textured base paint) - then all the painting details were done with acrylic :)

Just a couple more details (barrels, trigger) and it's all done and dusted :D

15th September 2012: defeated dem hexagons! So I've been focusing on the top of Miri's suit and the hardest part by far was the pattern itself. I made my own block print for the hexagons ( actually 2, but I decided the first was too small) and then printed the 3 metres of lycra myself T.T they were the bane of my life for quite sometime but they turned out alright, I think.

Anyway, making some major progress on the top itself (lots more detailing, hemming, adjusting to do but still). It's been a real challenge to make as I'm quite a beginner but I'm actually very pleased with how things are going :)
