title explains it basically. These are Not the boots I am wearing with the costume. Just fill ins until I order mine.
I bought these from a charity shop for £1 which was awesome. Just need to edit some things on them then they will be fine.
Went on a fabric hunt today with the best friend and searched like hell for the right colour c: ANd only managed to make the hat today without detail since the sewing machine decided to blow up on us! (sorry about the blur and ugly in this photo XD
So, when I ordered the wig the meatballs XD were terribly styled! but it was a great quality wig anyway.
Meatball: I started off by looping parts of the hair (knotting)where I wanted the bun to be, this was the base in which I would start the shape off.
I then began to wrap individual strands of the wig in a circle so it began to build shape. Doing this with all the pieces whilst spraying and crocidile clipping them in place seemed to make the bun look much more effective.
Armor thing :L : I used fimo clay for this. Rolling out a white piece and a red piece, cutting circular shapes out (white bigger than red)and placing them together in place. I then put them in a circular bowl which was oven proof to acheive all greatness of that annoying curve XD haha. Heating it in the oven for around 15 minutes would do. Finally I varnshed (with actual nail varnish) and stuck clips to the piece to make it attachable to the wig. (I also added a white shine to make it look more cartoony)
Decided to go with a red wig instead of an orange wig :) Woo Should be here soon :D
OKay, so here are a few issues. Issue one. I suck at picking a dye. Two, my cape has gone a really light purple. But does that really matter? I mean I will stand out more I guess :P Anyway. Progression is coming along steadily, even bought my over pants today! woo :3
I decided to cover my original Armour in a brown pleather material since this gave it a nice defined look and looks quite realistic :D (still has messy glue gun bits on :( but I will peel them off so it look tidy ^_^)
I made this sheath out of poster board. I used poster board because it's strong, easy to cut, yet not very flexible. I still have to actually either paint or make the decorative patterns on the shield in a golden colour. :)
I cut out a large piece of grey foam into the shape of the hylian shield, I then sprayed it metallic blue. For the outside part, I used poster board and drew around my shield, then cut it out, sprayed it grey and stuck it on with PVA :)
