Here it is! My costume for 1st polish eliminations for EC 2011. Theres no words how happy i am to get the opportunity for London championships again! I'll do my best!
Costume itself took 2,5 month to make. I put all my heart and skills into this work. I learnt again alot about new materials and lvled up in constructioning ;3
Wings contains of about 700 geese feathers and pvc pipes stellar.For the armor i used craft foam, acrylic spheres and cut in the right shape mannequin. But the real fun were hand and spear! I basically used expanding foam for the base and carved the "flames" in seperate little foam piece. Then i put paper mache on it, sanded and glued to base where i had place to put my real hands in. Every single "flame" was enhardened with wood glue and painted. It was so much work! Especially for spear where i used plexiglass with 56 LED lights. I also had LED lights eyes for the presentation. So much electronic fun! I am also very happy of my make up and fake fangs. Rawring on random people and seeing their terrified faces was just too awesome. ;3 Skirt and cloak were burned on the ends to make them look old and ripped.
Cosplay of this sizes is seriously tiring but the satissfaction is undescribleable!
