19th May 2013: Arrow Really wanted the ebony arrows but went with the daedric ones...though the feathers are black not brown lol. Made from a garden cane, spray painted black. The arrow head is made from craft foam & the feathers were glued on with hot glue. Twisted thread covers the visible glue.
I should hopefully have a small quiver with some more arrows as well.
19th May 2013: Nightingale Bow WIP 4 Almost finished now! Just need to add the 'string' and touch up some of the paint.
Really pleased with this!! Again credit to my amazing Dad =)
19th May 2013: Nightingale Bow- Detailing These are the detailed pieces for my bow. Made from craft foam, sealed with PVA and painted silver.
Credit to my Dad =)
18th May 2013: Belt WIP Template for belt (its since been cut out, this is just to show what it will look like!)
The 'buckle' is made from EVA foam =)
18th May 2013: Nightingale Bow WIP 3 Painted the bow using black spray paint =)
18th May 2013: Mask Just to show how the mask will look. I have since covered the base mask in leatherette with the detailing on top so the material won't show. Please ignore my face xD
I bought the base mask on eBay and used craft foam for the detailing.
12th May 2013: Nightingale Bow WIP 2 Just another update on my bow!
My dad sanded most of the foam down using my trusty dremel. It actually gave a pretty cool effect but would have been way too annoying to paint and add the rest of the detailing. So its since had a couple of layers of paper mache so we have a smoother surface to work on. I need to coat it with some PVA just so the paper won't show through the paint but other than that its now ready for painting =)
10th May 2013: Nightingale Bow WIP Progressssss =)
The base is made from a light weight pine wood and its been covered with some EVA foam. Most of the foam will be sanded down and going to use paper mache on top to shape it. Credit of course to my Father =)
6th May 2013: Nightingale Symbol Made from Craft foam covered in the leatherette I will be using. Need to paint the edges!
Credit to my Dad
6th May 2013: Progress 1- Templates Using in game references as well as Beebichu's amazing Nightingale costume progress, made all the templates for the armour from white card, taped together on my mannequin (Yes i finally have one!)
Not pictured here but have also made templates for the pauldrons, bracers and boot armour. I may need to make the skirt pieces slightly longer in the front. My dad's also altered the skirt pieces in the side so they will be shorter than what they're meant to be...reason being I have big hips -_- meaning if i have anything too long it will just stick out and look awful.
Decided to make it all out of leatherette instead of just craft foam but I may still back everything with foam to give it more shape. Hopefully the fabric will arrive tomorrow! Credit for all the templates to my awesome Dad =)
