Well, yesterday was the first time I've ever cosplayed! It was quite fun and met a lot of awesome people there. A lot of people seemed to like the costume and it was cool to get feedback on it. As the maker, it is really easy to see the flaws in the costume and harder to see what looks cool.
As far as the costume goes, it wasn't insulating as I thought it would be. I think I will end up rebuilding the helm to fix the symmetry on it and come up with a better way to secure it to my head. Some of the scales need better reinforcement. The wrist guard could use a fresh coat and some plastidip. I also need to come up with a different pose, the shield tends to block out most of the costume in photos.
