One week update: I will not make it 😅
I really wanted to get this done for geek market but at this point, I'm not sure if I will have everything done in time. I don't want to rush it so much that it looks worse.
The assembly is maybe 75% finished. The rest of the parts need to velcroed and positioned on some pants. I also need to add a bunch of pipes as extra details. Then of course the whole thing needs priming and painting. I sacrificed a lot of details because I wanted this done sooner, but there are a lot of events in the next couple of months that I can improve this for.
For my first official armor project, I'm happy I have achieved so much in just 3 weeks with my beginner experience level.
Sadly I don't have any photos of my dragon I can post besides these which I found by coincidence online!;; A lot of photos were taken at CC Stuttgart I haven't received any of them yet, sadly.
I'll see if I can possibly arrange a photoshoot anytime soon (as soon as my costume is repaired!). I've never had one before!
Very sad morning. So after plastidipping this thing, it lost all stretch which means it hardly get over my 2 years old head... so I tried to dremmel the edges to make the hole a little bigger. I also tried adding side attachments on each side. But still too tight. So I came to the very obvious conclusion that I need to resize the collar 😭😭😭 This build was made to be a learning experience but seriously, I had no idea how much I sucked a foam smithing 😂😂😂 I think I am going to stick to sewing in the future! Double welted pockets anyone? 😉😉😉 #cosplayfail#evafoam#cosplayproblem#voltron#voltroncosplay#paladin#paladincosplay
So these past few days I've been having my roommates wrap me like a dummy in tape to make molds of my body and foot so I could use for cosplay purposes lol. With the release of my hero academia movie coming soon I wanted to cosplay as Iida Tenya in his hero suit.😊😊😊 made a few patterns based on the molds I had made. Just finished the arms today and tomorrow I will try to get the legs done. I'm not rushing it too much as I did also order a UA track suit and blue wig which should be here by monday but still gonna try to get as much done and hope to cosplay in his armor. My body sou or is a soldier first class for now until I use it to build the chest piece lol #myheroacademia#bokunoheroacademia#iidatenya#iidatenyacosplay#cosplay#cosplayarmor#evafoamarmor#evafoam#ffvii#crisiscoreff7#zackfaircosplay#zachfair#bodymold
