8th August 2011: Almost there So, I managed to cut down the wig today and thus made my major progress on this costume. The wig used to go down to my ass, so it was quite nerve-wracking to cut it (I'e never tried styling a wig before)
I've also gathered most of the stuff I'll be using for this costume, as shown in the new progress piccie. I'm still not sure about the top, but I may use it sinec I think it looks OK. Apart from that I'm mostly just waiting to find kneepads, and I might get some brighter green trousers. I also need to dig out my black wrist-thingies for under the gloves and make one for the top of the arm. Hopefully I'll also be getting my own belt and holster soon ^_^
5th August 2011: Progress! Lo and behold, I've managed to gather a fair few bits of this costume:
~wig just needs cutting (was a old wig for Yoko from Gurren Lagaan, so it's ass-length at the moment)
~Found 2 possible pairs of trousers - one full-length or one three-quarters that's a slightly brighter green
~Found a strappy top that will do for the test photos, but I will buy a better top soon
~Found my old gloves
~Finally got my nice boots through the post
Along with all of Matt's airsoft kit that I'll be stealing, all I need now is the kneepads - woohoo ^_^

Well, I'd given up on the costume it was for, and the bottom half was quite tangled anyway... but, yeah, I guess so =p

AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! Meryl! This is looking amazing! How did you do the kneepad?
Zelvyne - 15th August 2011
The kneepads are just cheap ones I bought off've ebay (I didn't want to risk making ones out of foam and not being able to kneel in them) painted with an enamel paint tester pot =p.
