Didn't recognise it, but very cool costume, especially comparing it to the reference art.

Backpack With Fixings

Again from another angle

22nd August 2009

Backpack With Fixings

Yays!!!

Purely by accident i came up with this fixing !!!

I have one Flatened End screwed Against the Frame and the other end is held down by a cable tie :D

This is a solid fixing and solves the problem of the wings breaking again :)

22nd August 2009

Wings Reaired

Rods are now inserted in to the existing wing piles and the duct tape between the 2 poles allow a tight fit....

Now to make the fixings for the back pack

22nd August 2009

Wing Repair

After cutting down the wings I returned to B&Q and bought piping the same size and the next size down...

With the under sized piping i wrapped duct tape around the middele and eaither end then stuff the rods in to thie wings...

22nd August 2009

Stripped down

Not only did i have more screws to deal with than the average worker in amsterdam but they were all hidden under the layers of funfoam Glue and Latex i had applied :D

Needless to say i coudnt locate any of them so took a hammer to the unsupported areas and litterly tore the pannels off, i felt sick and i still had on idea of how to fix the wing problem :S

22nd August 2009

GaH THe ReBuiLD!!

The wing fell off just before the Masquerade @ Minami :S

Luckily enough Dr Tab was on hane with an amazing emergancy repair :D

So the rebuild was started days before Ayacon 09 :S i forgot how much i had to do, the ic above shows some of thhe screws i had holding the panels in place and ofcoutse the broken wing parts...

Boots Complete

The most time consuming part by FAR!!!

Painting the boots in a mix of acryllic paint and latex was quick enough....
but the drying times TAKES AGGGGEEESSSSSSSS!!!

Once the paint had finally dried i gave a light coat of clear primer Isoflex to seal the paint :D
