The Prince of Persia (Prince of Persia 4) - Prince of Persia


Not gonna give this one a completed tag just yet, I want to do a few more things to it for next year.

Hand made from a pair of the ugliest leather trousers you have ever seen.

Made by making loads of templates. Each peice is has a layer of craft foam and stiff cardboard. The detail was applied with cern relief, a 3D paint usually used for glass decoration. Painted black, drybrushed silver and attached to the glove by sewing a bits of card for every section directly onto the glove and then glued on with Araldite resin glue stuff.

PVC aligator skin patterned..stuff. The jacket has 3 layers that were sewn together. The squares on the front and back of the jacket were made out of craft foam and cern relief and either sewn directly onto the jacket or glued in the same way the gauntlet plates were.


Made out of pins, craft foam, card, cern relief and..used pond liner XD
I scrubbed the stuff in the bath to get the mildew smell out. Trust me it's not as bad, but if you see me as the prince, don't go near my crotch, you'll get a nasty suprise.

Drawn out and then cut on a jigsaw for the main shape. The detail on the top of the blade was done with craft foam and cern relief.
The guard detail and end of the sword was done with paper clay and moulded around my fingers so I could hold it how the prince does in the game

So exciting! I love the gauntlet, is that 3D paint you've used for the details?

Almost finished

Didn't get the prince or elika 100% finished in time for expo, but they were good enough to wear even if it was only for half a day xD;
I didn't have time for the scabbard, the scarf was thrown together the night before and the shin pads were quite litterally made in the masquerade queue xD
Most of the craft foam parts took a beating at expo and need painted again, but i'll do that and remake a few bits for next time I wear him, possibly Minamicon or May expo,
we'll see!!

Getting there,,,!

A lot still to do, and at the same time a lot done x3
The sword shape has been cut, but still needs filed, sanded, paperclayed and painted.
Got the main shape for the jacket and undershirt, of which the jacket needs another layer added and the detail along the front seams.
Got the belt done, and it looks rather sexy.
Trousers and scarf are currently lying as mounds of fabric and the gauntlet and glove are finished.

4 days to go. Bollocks.

12th July 2009
