View Full Version : Lina Inverse: Shoulder Guards (ick) and huge beads.

08-27-2002, 12:20 PM
Ok, I'm starting my Lina costume for next summer NOW so I won't end up doing it last minute like I did Miyu. :thumbsup:

Anyway, I have no idea how to go about doing her shoulder armor. So far, I'm contemplating using paper mache or fiberglass. Paper mache I'm extremely familiar with, so there would be a nice comfort level there. Never touched fiberglass b4 in my life. Any ideas?

And for her accessories, for the most part, I know where I'm getting everything. However, I haven't a clue where I'd find those huge beads for her necklace.

All help is appreciated, and thanks for your time in reading this.

hey! I can't help much on the armour - I went the paper mache route and wasn't really happy *shrug*
But the beads... I found large round wooden beads at my hobby/craft store & painted them green. I think most craft stores have an aisle of different sorts of unpainted wooden thingies.

I once made fairly large beads out of colored sculpey. A friend of mine made her Sylphiel shoulder pads out of metallic fabric, stuffing, and the appropriate trim. Good luck with the armor!

Woo, thanks you guys! You got the wheels in my head spinning (or whatever the saying is...) I think I'll be fine now. Thanks again! ;)
