I <3 LINA. Slayers has been my favorite anime since I first got into the stuff, and Lina is the definition of awesome. NUFF SAID.
So I managed to finish most everything by Anime Boston. In the hotel room. At 6 pm on Friday. Huuuuuurrrrrrrr. Never doing that again!
The suit's made of berry red moleskin (LOVE LOVE LOVE THE STUFF <3), the underpants and boob holster are some cotton lycra stuff. Gonna be remade because it fit like crap.
I spent most of the time working on the spaulders trying to get the right shape and size. Almost neurotic about them actually. Unfortunately they didn't turn out like I wanted them to thanks to time running out. The gold embellishments in front of the gems need a lot of work. They look decent from far away but up close they're kind of ugly. The base and gold parts are made of sintra, the gems are epoxy resin. I molded a big halogen bulb for them, hahaha. I got some sweet hammered black spraypaint for the spaulders too which gave it a really cool texture.
The earrings are ping pong balls. I must've went through a package or two for this costume. I used a half of one when I sculpted the talismans and belt buckle thing. Cast those in epoxy resin and backed them with foil for delightful gem shininess.
I'm still missing her dagger, but I've got it's base done and the sheath as well. Gonna try and redo everything for the next con. ...Whenever that is.
Contacts are "red wolf" contacts. They looked really cool, as natural as red eyes could be, hahaha.
