Soul Calibur IV

Cosplayer: xaerael

Variant: 1up

Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

10th June 2009: [10th june update] finished working on the final panel for the lower part of the jacket. i'll be fusing them all together tomorrow then i should be finishing the whole jacket!

2nd June 2009: [02nd june update] started work on the "tentacle" things that are pretty much all over the costume. i guess it's good because the same cast can cover his coat trims, shoulders, boot trims and other bits.

moulds are done, currently doing a first test cast to gauge how many layers of latex to add to each piece. i might make a few more moulds from this cast just to speed things up a little...

viva la plaster casting!

The hat brim looks like the inside of my kneecaps when I had to layer the foam to create a smooth curve XD So I will not know it as Cervantes' hat but a giant kneecap :P

Mmmm... plaster moulding.

That's going to become my friend too over the next few months.

Also, just found newplast for £1.99 a bar in a local shop! Though carrying 4 kilo's is f-ing hard. :(

i adore my hat. i'll be sad when i start surfacing it because i won't be able to put it on randomly.

but then i'll be ok again when it's dry, because it will look even better!

I really hope I'm allowed to squish the trim on the coat at least once. Latex squishy!

ALMOST! i'll have a big bushy beard and lots of makeup on, so my real face will still be a mystery!

and maybe a set of contacts... if i can make my eyes stay open long enough to stuff em in!

You start a project where it looks like you'll be forced into working with fabric... and you make your own latex sheeting for the jacket.

You're insane and it's wonderful.
