Legend of Dragoon is one of my favourite games! I'd love to do Dart someday! Gods, this'll be amazing!

SlimDefinition posted on 13 May, 2009 - 20:30
Well, me and Loveliesbleeding (on the expo forums) have a plan. I can't talk about it openly though. It's a plan we need others to pitch in on, and if you want to do Dart...

progress is looking great XD

SlimDefinition posted on 28 June, 2009 - 15:18
Thanks. The horns are now glued on, so I just need to touch up some areas and re-adjust a little where my ears are concerned (still a little uncomfortable).

Kaka Extreme posted on 28 June, 2009 - 18:20
looking amazing!!! loving the head piece!!!

AmethystEyes posted on 29 June, 2009 - 18:54
The headpiece is great! What did you make it from?

SlimDefinition posted on 29 June, 2009 - 21:09
I've sent a PM to you regarding that one. It's been such a long-winded process. I'm dreading the armour now!

Thank you both.

Sephirayne posted on 28 March, 2010 - 16:06
Very awesome costume. I love the armour and the overall look.

SlimDefinition posted on 31 March, 2010 - 21:11
Thanks Sephy.

Solarista posted on 5 November, 2010 - 21:11
That armour must have taken a lot of work, it's turned out very nicely though.

SlimDefinition posted on 5 November, 2010 - 22:06
It was too big and heavy really. I will be remaking it as soon as I can put the money toward it. It still looked good, and I was happy with the first turn out of it.

Arianna posted on 17 April, 2011 - 18:26
Awesome! Legend of Dragoon needs more love

SlimDefinition posted on 20 April, 2011 - 22:07
It sure does, and as soon as possible I am revamping this costume. ;-)

Ino posted on 24 June, 2011 - 22:34
Can't believe I missed this one! :O Absolutely stunning.

SlimDefinition posted on 27 June, 2011 - 11:33
Thanks Ino. ^_^ I am going to remake the armour and leggings in a revamp soon enough. Just need enough money for wonderflex to do that really.

Natsumi posted on 28 July, 2011 - 20:27
Wow! Just wow! :o You're one good armour smith! looks fantastic aswell as very sturdy!

SlimDefinition posted on 28 July, 2011 - 21:21
I made this armour a little too big, but it still survives. I'll remake it when I can afford to though. Thanks btw! ^^'

Manticore posted on 20 September, 2011 - 15:40
*squeall* GOD... Rosie you legend! This looked awesome! Ditto to what Natsumi said!

SlimDefinition posted on 20 September, 2011 - 18:49
Thanks. ^_^' The armour IS indeed very durable (I have a long-winded way of making armour but it means you can smack it a lot and it won't even dent), but I made it a little bit too big that time. It was my first attempt at armour, and so I will be doing the version 2 in the near future.

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.

Progress Journal

18th September 2009

Getting there

I've updated my progress with photos. At a guess I'd say the armour is about 80% finished now.

2nd July 2009

Coronet and horns are finished...

But I need hair extensions to go over the top as the damn thing won&#039;t sit right under the wig. Grr!

The coronet and horns have since been varnished following that photo.

18th June 2009

Coronet and horns almost finished

I'm about 3/4 of the way through making them now.
The coronet is a bit tight, and I have to wear a wig still, but it should be ok.
I will show a picture as soon as possible.

2nd June 2009

Sewing machine, midnight blue jersey fabric, and gloves

I've just bought all three of those things on eBay.
Whee! Mini sewing machine for £11.99! Sweet. Should make cosplay life a lot easier.
