ohhh im amking to pairs for my friends who are going as agito and akito . but im making them as covers to go over the skates
What im doing is making test runs out of posterboard to get the shape right then tracing the design ontocraft foam cutting it out and beveling the edges of each piece and then super gluing them back together so that they are 3D rather than flat
Then once I assemble all of the pieces im going to fiberglass the inside and modge pog the outside then Im going to attach all the individual pieces, once painted, to a black band that runs around the skate and attaches with velcroe in the back.
the reason for the band was that I needed something under the pieces that could wrap all the way around the skate w/o being noticed since the regalia split in the front
here are some pics of some of the work i have done so far
its mainly just the poster board but i have made all the wheels and 1/2 of one of the main body pieces
