AX'98 was my first convention ever, my friends and i were really imperssed by your Priss hardsuit~ Over the years, this is still one of the coolest things I've come across in or outside the states. Am glad to see it again here~
Oh my. That must have been dreadfully uncomfortable. It does look wonderful, though.
(and I just read your post in the "worst thing endured for cosplay" thread...ouch.)
wow!!!! i soo want nene's hardsuit but way beyond my means...
Firstly- thanks for the compliments!
Secondly (and to duck)- Kevlar, baby! That is a bullet proof suit you're looking at (although we updated it recently and now it looks even better tho still bullet proof) It was made from body casts and lots of sanding and painting and odds and ends. We have some very random stuff in that but quite a lot of it was moulded by hand or from scratch.
Anyhow- thanks for the warm response!
wowzas... very nice job *_* << is extreemly impressed
