23rd May 2015: Orcrist Managed to finish Orcrist in time for the cosplay pics at Hampton Court. It is not perfect but for the pictures it looks awesome and for a first attempt done under time pressure I am soooo proud of the result :D
9th May 2015: Worbla Toe Caps Finished my first ever worbla item - Thorin's left toecap! Love this material. It is reasonably easy to work with, as long as you don't heat it too hot it holds it shape very well, hardens perfectly (and if it is not perfect you simply reheat and do it again!) and paints very well.
Looks so much better than my first attempt at these with Primo, which was just so heavy and would not stick properly to the leather. Here is the finished product (not yet attached but ready to go!)

Thank you so much for your lovely comments! The plate pieces are actually made from Sculpey clay, by making an inverted mould first and then pressing and baking each piece individually.
