Okay. Short - not insanely interesting update, iiif you can call it an update. This is pictures almost a month old. I just wanted you to know that I am not dead on this project! I just lack some materials right now - and time. I'm pretty busy all week, and I really need a lot of surplus before I feel motivated to work on it. But I don't feel like rushing either, so I'm just taking it nice and easy. :) A better upadate will be made soon! And that with pictures NOT taken with my phone! XD Yay!
People this blood elf is on! I'm sad that I didn't have the time to make this cosplay for J-Popcon 2011, but well, that's just how it is. :) But good news! It IS going to be made! Cause I have made a progress this weekend that gave me hope! I've been pretty ill, but suddenly my feverish head gave me some ideas which I had to try out - and they worked! They worked in a way that I could believe in this costume! I have no deadline for it, and that's lovely! The next convention in Denmark would be SVS-con, and I am not attending this year due to my last galla at my school. SO! If it is needed for a convention it would be Genki, and that is pass the summer vacation.! XD So no stress! It motivates me a lot somehow right now that I can just make it in my tempo. :)
I tried to make the belt she is wearing. It was a bit hard to figure out the design since I don't really have a proper reference photo of it, but I made it with a combination of other cosplayers way of making it. I like the way it turned out, but I'm not sure yet whether I will use it at the end result or not, what do you think?
I sketched the belt in full scale on a paper, and cut it out. Afterwards I cut the main shape out in moosgummi two times. First a bottom one, and next the top out of thicker moosgummi. I simply glued it together, and I now got the main shape. Thereafter I used pappmache to cover the rough edges ect. When it was dry (I couldn't wait so I used a hair dryer...) I formed the "face" out of clay and tried to get it to look as much as the sketch I had made, and smoothed it out. When it all had dried I sprayed it all black, and painted the the areas that was supposed to be gold afterwards.
Can't wait to share new updates with you!
