Yes, I am aware that this movie doesn't come out for another 7 months XD but hey, it's fun to be one of the first (if not THE first) person to make this! CURSE YOU JOSS WHEDON FOR MAKING SUCH A COMPLICATED COSTUME (lol)
This one took about 100+ hours to make, there is so much detail you can't even see in these photos. The armor is all hand-sculpted and the sleeves are probably what I'm most proud of because of the immense amount of detail that went into them. Plus all the hand-sewn trim that was done for it. Every single piece was made by me and I also developed all the patterns for the entire costume. There was a large portion of time involved in trying to match up all the strips and since the costume is very asymmetrical, there was also a lot of specific measurements I had to make to ensure it all worked. I definitely have a love hate relationship with this costume, but I'm extremely proud of what I was able to accomplish, especially since the only photos out there are the ones taken from on set so far!
There is still a lot more I want to add to it, plus I am going to have the fully armored version with the staff for Ohayocon :)
