Kitacon 2014

28th February 2014: WIP So I realised I've neglected updates on this costume... Here goes...

All the armour is obviously foam, with funky foam for the scales (all hand formed... not as bad as the 400-ish scales I've made SO FAR far my partner's Rathalos armour). All primed and ready to paint.
The undersuit I just bought (waiting on the leggings though) and probably won't modify much unless I have time.
The hat was made from scraps of the trousers from a pattern I drafted. The trousers are quilted (by me as I couldn't find pre-quilted stuff) to give the appearance of scales.
The belts are cheap belts that I chopped up with small painted perfume bottles as the ammo casings.

Just the collar/tie, armguard and bowgun left to do now (and the painting, obviously)

27th January 2014: Slow beginnings This is quite a large cosplay, so I'm hoping I can get it done in time for Kita 2014.
Anyways, I found a lovely green fabric, and started by cutting out the side-skirt, which is meant to be a wing, and painting the 'eyes' on it. I've also started quilting the leg pieces out of the same fabric.
