Canti
Furi Kuri

Cosplayer: Ilpala

Variant: Red/Atomsk

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

12th August 2009: still latexing Latex - on - and on - and on - and on. I'm on to the minor colours now but man is it tireing.

Successfully tinted my screen last night, really tricky stuff to apply properly - especialy when you forget to peel off the back film >_<
It's not great but it will do

11th August 2009: Late night telly I finally found a use for digital, other than endless repeats of top gear! They love showing cheesy old films like Red Heat late at night, perfect accompanyment to midnight cosplay.

Legs are finished now and the arms are very nearly there too. managed to get a coat of coloured latex onto the head and body as well. Unfortunately both I and my prefered craft shop have run out of red acrylic so it's a bit of a search mission at lunchtime today.

Been experimenting with ways of tinting my tv screen too and I think I'm going to have to go the whole hog and get some window tinting film... darned expensive though.

10th August 2009: latex Well, arms and legs nearly complete now. coloured latex neaded a few more coats than normal for a good colour and I discovered I screwed up in construction as I used some dark craft foam for some detail - this section is now a lot darker than the rest of the costume :(

I'll paint the detail tonight and crack on with latexing the head and body.

8th August 2009: construction complete Ok, so I've finished carving the last bits of detail and filling/trimming the joints. Taken a few progress pics to show what it looks like pre latexing too.

Next up a fun weekend of latexing, wish it wasn't so nice outside :(

This is so awesome! It's so sad I never got to see it! Will you ever wear it again?

Ilpala avatar

Ilpala - 16th March 2010
I might do! it's easy to wear and pretty fun :)
I wore him a couple of times last year though so it probably won't be for a while.
