I remember having to tape you back togethe at the Manchester MCM :P
With or without a beard?
Haha, I doubt it. Took me 3 months to finish the bloody sword, and the shields shaping up to be the most challenging thing Ive done
So... next year xD
Although I learnt a vaguely seasonal...
Closest clan to what Im cosplaying is this, so Im in
Pip has en eye patch though, so nearly went with pirates...
Wouldnt mind snow photos for Boromir, but thatll have to wait until next year I think
Cant wait to see the Jon Snow ones though
Im already out of space and constantly adding stuff, so yeah, definitely an issue lol
Tbh, I managed to make Caius's fancy twat waistcoat without a dummy, so I may be ok
If I get desperate, I...
I suspect presents is the most seasonal Ill get, and I dont think Ill have time this year now anyway lol
I feel like I should get a manakin to do stuff for Boromir, but I suspect finding one to fit would be a pain
Plus no idea where Id actually store it o.o
5 blades and 4 hilts later, I have a sword Im actually happy with xD
DO YOU EVEN SHAMANY SHAMANY BRO?
This is true lol
And yeah, definitely think it would look best in bone. Not to mention metal tones are a total bitch of a thing to get right. I mean, you know...
Ah yes, the all important shamany shamany xD
But yeah, the bone look is nice, and I think you have a point about its unusual shape :P
I need to get back into season 5. I saw the first then got distracted
Also yay scythe :D
Arre you painting it the same as before? (fairly sure Ive asked you this and then forgotten)
Thats pretty much Walking Dead all over to be fair lol
Im putting together the design for Boromirs shield at the moment
This thing is going to be a complete dick to build I think
I should really try those games at some point
Sword V5.2 underway on the crossguard sculpting. Ive made the hilt narrower and flatter on this one, meaning I can have a much finer, better fitted cross guard, plus...
People in the 'Most Desirable Gender' threads dont spend countless hours over many years developing a deverse skillset that applies to the poll, that cant be summed up with a single picture.
Yay, Nakigoe and myself got tickets the KH2.5 remix launch party in London, so more cosplay xD
Fairly sure this sums up cosplay for most of us
I started my 2015 cosplay, at least my main one anyway, in August xD
Plus I have my February LAGC one finished
So yeah, plans
February LAGC - Pip from Hellsing, which is already finished and...
Youre damn right. I should be in the other poll
V2.0? The one in the photos is V5.0 xD
And V5.1 was a failure
So V5.2 is now underway with a different approach to the hilt
Random kinda pointless update
I did a thing
You cant actually tell in the photo cause it just looks like a blue...
We need to do skype building sessions more often. Theyre fucking good for motivation
You guys are weird
I dread to think how many thousands of hours Ive put into cosplay over the last couple of years
Also, unrelated to pretty much anything, but my experience with Alien Isolation so far essentially...
*looks at pile of materials in a huge box*
Welcome to CC btw Almavet ^^
Boromir's sword is finished, ready for Alcon next year, albeit needing a scabbard still
Mel is a better guy than most guys
Its an unusual skill
Also I saw a little kid dressed as Captain America in the Co-op this morning on my way to work. Does that count for this?
FUCK LEATHER BINDNG A LONGSWORD
If youre moving to London, I feel cosplay build days should become a thing if your motivation holds
Im finally getting somewhere with...
I seem to recall you having a fondness for a certain FF characters crotch...
Fair play :P
Currently one of the crossbeams is cracked, so that needs replacing before I next use it lol
Haha thanks ^^
And yep, did indeed use the press again to give it a curve. Thats actually what the wooden thing its leaning on is
Given Ill be the one building it eventually, I think youll be fine
Length seems to be mostly ignored though. Caius's sword breaks every size restriction out there and no ones stopped me yet
AL cons use the rule of ''if you hit someone with it, would it break before the person?'' in essence
It is ^^
MDF is artificial fibre wood board. A lot of pure wood, like pine, would be too hard to be actually con safe so for props, mostly banned at cons. MDF however is solid enough to be used, but...
3 layers of 3mm thick MDF, and the fuller edges are done with white fine milliput and wood filler
Im think Im overkilling this sword
Thats progess since Monday. Ive ended up...
Group photos here
Cause she stole Mels jacket lol
Is... is that why Mio is a miserable sod in the photo? Your expression is basically ''Fuck powerlines and all they stand for''
I forgot Ash had my sword for that lol
Also, is it wrong that the first thing I noticed in the photo was the power lines? I genuinely didnt think they were there despite the amount of times Ive...
So the sketch is now a reality
Waterloo and City Line. March 28th. The day we were asked if we were ok on the tube
My arm hurts
This is me hun, what do you expect?
