Weiss Schnee

Cosplayer: yuubalu

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

18th June 2014: Back detail Just because I'm not sure any of the photos will ever show this off, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out~

7th May 2014: Myrtenaster III Finally finished! Pretty happy with how this has turned out, too!

Technically there should be a little dome on the end of the handle, which I'll stick on if I can find something that works. If not, it's not a huge deal.

26th April 2014: Boots Boots are all done apart from the red lining, which I'll put in at a later date once I actually get my hands on the fabric I'd like.

Hoping to finish off the petticoat tomorrow, before I focus on other cosplays for a while.

9th April 2014: Make-up test Wrong wig, but I was trying out colour more than anything.

I am super kawaii and nobody can convince me otherwise.

4th November 2013: Myrtenaster II Progress so far; the various components in the top left (they'll all be joined using a skewer, which hopefully means the barrel will be able to spin!), some 3D details on the guard in the top right, and the base of the pommel in the bottom.

As usual, everything is in the process of getting a coat of paper mache, because it makes everything stronger and is a pretty good base to put primer etc on top of. I used acrylic board for the base structures, sandwiching it between two layers of super hard cardboard stuff (I'm not sure what it actually is!) for the parts that needed to be extra stiff (aka the blade and the guards). The barrel consists of several small circles of acrylic board, with worbla making up the actual barrel. 3D details are all craft foam.

2nd November 2013: Myrtenaster I Made a start on Myrtenaster today, using a great tutorial I found on dA. Finding tutorials is always a great place to start, but I like to fiddle around with them a bit, so I'm pretty much only using the template that came with it (because it saves me so much hassle trying to work things out on my own!)

Pics as soon as I have enough progress that it's actually worth showing.

You're going to be perfect, like seriously ;w; (and it won't be hard to convince me to get Yang done for then, I don't think ;D)
