11th August 2013: Seraph blade updates Had a few issues with cutting the acrylic sheeting for the seraph blades. The dremel has decided it doesn't like it and instead destroyed one of the discs and sanding pieces because of the heat it generated. My cousin is planning on lending me his electric scroll saw and I've checked it out on google and can be used as long as its on a lower setting and you use the correct blade. Also looking at the thickness of the acrylic could possibly make the whole blade out of one sheet thickness instead of two sheet thicknesses. Will see how it goes.
8th August 2013: Acrylic sheeting for seraph blades So the acrylic sheeting arrived for my seraph blades. I had to buy 60cm x 10cm (they wouldn't do a width smaller than 10cms) and each sheet is 1.5cm thick. The idea is to cut the basic blade shape into each piece then using some sort of transparent adhesive stick two of the pieces together to give me a 3cm thick piece. Once that is done it will be the slow task of shaping the blades properly into them. I have a feeling their going to be somewhat heavy but I'm pretty much using the same materials they used in the movie as it seems they used a mixture of resin and acrylics to make the blades. So cross your fingers for me guys and lets see how this goes.

I've been contemplating it for a while now since I saw some of the earlier pics come out. Then a few of my American friends did a TMI shoot and that was it I was decided. Hoping to have it ready for the premiere in August but if that doesn't work to plan definitely for October/November kinda time

This is looking so great! All the detail you've gone to with the wig and contacts <3

Thanks hun. My wig still needs cutting lol its actually really long but I managed to hide most of it in the hood. Want to start work on the holster next just need to get some decent fake leather first that isn't too expensive. Then of course try and work the bloody thing out lol. The contacts are actually awesome, whether I do him with or without gold eyes my normal eye colour is blue anyway so that's sorted :D
i'm wondering, since I'm getting a similar wig for a different cosplay - how do you go about cutting and styling it right? yours looks fantastic :O

Thanks lunaloki268 I actually cut the wig initially using my boyfriend as my model. I cut it roughly to the style I wanted on his head then when I took it off I put it onto my foam head and started curling it. Once it was curled I put it in front of my computer screen and trimmed it as and where was needed hoping it would look right. To be honest it was pretty hit and miss so my advice is pretty none existent sorry.
