Cosplayer: Emzone

Variant: 2011 Reboot

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

16th February 2013: Midlands I apparently have special eyes. #mybrand!
My contacts failed on the test wear the night before - and my fangs also failed to set :sob:
Still, worked out the kinks in the costume and will be back in May with everything smoothed out =]

15th February 2013: Go go go More wefts added into the wig - now awaiting its final trim and styling
Resin casts for the orbs have failed for the 5th time now so I found an alternative method using papermache bases.
Also 'boots/leg warmers' took surprisingly ages since I decided to build it around foam bases to give it the thick supporting appearance - atlike4amsob

14th February 2013: Progress Tunic is now lined with a little stitch pattern incorporated
Shoulder belt has been made and added and the straps and clips for the many pouches.
I can surprisingly move easily enough - although chairs are a bit bothersome

13th February 2013: Pouches! So.Many.Pouches
Costume has a total of 11 pouches including the large one on the back
I made a functional pouch to begin with but it looked floppy and untidy even after stuffing and structuring round a cardboard base so I tried using a polystyrene block - which turned out much better, and more uniformed like the animation.
So it was off to the garage with a hack saw and lots of white balls and stitching later I was burning my fingerprints off with the glue gun~

I recycled some of the left over 'buttons' I made for my Skyward Zelda costume last year for the clips after giving them a new coat of silver paint

11th February 2013: Wefts lolwefts
lolsob

#Still in progress!
When I'm done I'm hoping to have the centre parting smoothed over with some extra wefts etc.

10th February 2013: Wig progress Some shots from the mini tutorial I put together to guide our Tygra's process
I've now finished adding the light brown wefts to both sides, now what remains are the darker wefts and then styling.

First time for everythingg

25th January 2013: Tunic part1 It begingsss - so many uncertainness with the references - it changes in every image including the official reference. Dx
Back pieces have been folded to give the impression - nothing cut or measured yet in terms of the back slit or join~

Doubled up to strengthen the colours and give it a pratical feel

25th January 2013: WIG #death

24th January 2013: Leggings I doubled up some black cotton lycra // pretty basic
Notmuchelsetosay. Leggings. HOOOO

4th January 2013: Bits and teeth Fangs and claws. Cady lace wig bought in blonde for the base wig!

4th January 2013: refs More refs including some back shots for that backpack
