I got my 2 "toy" riffles
in the mail for Mami. The are sickly realistic with a wood body and metal hardware.
I have to mod them because they are very heavy in there current state (hollow out the wood body) then start to add the details.
The only down side is that the barrel is smaller than her's but I can live with that. It's not so much that I can't replace it but I like the base they use that matches the wood body width. I'm thankful the US are still historical firearm fanatics.
I have the patterns, wig in the mail, and boots commissioned (ended up cheaper the buying a pair, then creating a boot cover). I have resin and modeling silicon putty to make her flower hair pin.
I won't start anything on the costume till after May but it nice to have so much ready and planned out.
My question however is: Should I do the in Anime Riffle
or the Artbook Riffle.
Just to confuse the crap out of me, both are official versions of the riffle and completely different.
Question two: Mami corset, I want to make as a really corset with eyelets in the back but I'm concerned that people would nitpick that detail. >_<
