Slifer The Sky Dragon
originally designed armor

BEHOLD THE EXECUTIVE PRODU-
I mean....SLIFER THE SKY DRAGON!
concept is completely an original idea by me - came up with the armor first, clothing second.
Helm - constructed off a bicycle helmet, fits well enough where I don't need the chin straps to keep it on. Built up using cardboard and MASKING TAPE (don't underestimate the stuff!), and partially covered in about 3 packs of paper clay, then sprayed with a resin type spray. Jewel was cast in resin (first time doing resin casting!), so despite not coming out as perfectly as I hoped, it came out well for my first time doing it.
chest plate - inspired by the chest section on Slifer where it's arms are. First time doing wings (thick foamies sandwiched together with wire inside). Still need to add front 2 spikes.
blades - based these off a traditional Egyptian khopesh and tweaked the design to my liking. Made out of wood, sanded to shape, and covered in bondo.
tunic - tried to go for a more Egyptian look, as the theme is huge in Yugioh. Black stripe down the middle references to Slifer's black stomach coloring, and the cloth that hangs down in the back from the belt representative of the tail.
Overall I'm pleased with it, especially the helm. Arm gauntlets and teeth to the helm will be added for Fanime =D
