Thanks! Lol, wasn't expecting a look/comment so quickly. ^_^
Whoa, it sounds so professional ^_^' Imma gonna go check out that tutorial, to see the process and stuff :P I had help with my prop too lol Since I'm not allowed near power tools and stuff, my step dad had to help me
Wow. It really does look amazing. I'm only a newbie cosplayer, so I have no clue what silicone adhesive and latex caulk are o_o
Wow, leather handgrip?! Bolted on?! Whoa, that's pretty awesome :O
The gradient on the spikes, did you hand paint that, or was it spray paint?
Anyways, all in all, the whole 3-D ness is pure win 8D

The gradient was spray paint, the only part I sprayed:P. I liked the way the acrylic brush made the dark parts of it look mottled, though ^_^. And lol, I was a newbie propmaker when I made the shield, my mom gave me a lotta help- she's a contractor, hehe. Silicone adhesive is just a clear silicone that comes out of a caulking gun and sticks ANYTHING together super-permanently, I forget what it's mainly used for. And latex is the stuff you'd use around the bathtub and such; I put it around where the spikes attached onto the shield. Like I said, I've got a bit of a photo tutorial on the costume itself that shows most of the steps. And yeah, the handgrip was cut from a leather belt. It was so freakin' tough that I had to use metal-cutting shears to snip it DX.

I've got most of the construction process in the costume photos, lol. Buuut, mainly, rigid pink insulation foam, glued together with silicone adhesive and a little bit of latex caulk to make the spikes blend in more evenly, and covered in drywall spackle (but it's not strong like I thought it would be, so I don't recommend using that compared to something like mache or fiberglass), and it's painted with acrylic paint. The handgrip is made out of bolted-on leather. And thanks. I worked for months on it ^_^
