Late to the party as I had only planned on attending a day but here I am.

I've got my Wonder Woman Kai almost complete. She is built, primed, and painting has commenced. I am hoping to get her done this weekend for a fitting and finally sealing. I'll be starting Deedlit tonight (armour pieces, no fabric yet) and hoping to get through it with some ease now that I've got more experience working with eva foam and all its pros and cons. If I can get her done in a timely manner I'll be able to get the bf's Parn done to match!

The helm is done! Was such a lovely day. Just the bracers and the fastening system and I will be done! No matter how many times I clean the chain it still leaves my hands black.

just got to sew some snaps to be done the belt and purple stuff, and then tomorrow I'll make at least one glove. Probably won't have time for both but I'll do my darndest. Either way, was so happy I almost nailed it on the first mockup.

Last month I went shopping at Value Village and ended up getting some stuff for a couple of my cosplays. On a wait list for this month for two wigs from Arda Wigs, but probably going to order the third one from Ebay. Need to take a trip to Fabricland to get some fabric for cosplay. I hope that I get my cosplays done in time for the con! O__O

Final paint layers tonight on Wonder Woman. Weathering and a quick seal tomorrow before I'm off to work a tradeshow on the weekend. Will do the final seal and polish on Monday, and add the vinyl Tuesday! Then it will just be a couple of snaps for the necklace and boot pieces and a fitting! I've posted a LOT of the progress on instagram https://www.instagram.com/0xshedevilx0/.

I've started on Deedlit's detailed pieces (links to pauldrons and belt buckle), painting those tonight. Can't do much with the armour until I can pick up some piping and snaps from home depot later this week. I'll also be starting Parn's armour next week so I can create the two at the same pace and only have painting to remain in the end.

Annnd forgot I was out of pattern paper. Scrounged up enough for half of a first mockup of what will definitely be at least three, and for tomorrow I guess I need to figure out something else to work on.

Working on Hera's head piece tomorrow. Hoping to get her done by next week so I can start Rey's cosplay too. So much to do.

I'm jealous you finished so early! This looks adorable! Pray the weather is kind to all of us, and she doesn't freeze. I'm hoping for the best myself for Wonder Woman!

Couldn't do boot work, but at least I got some harness work done. Cut out the pieces, ordered the buckles at last, patterned, cut out AND heat-formed my worbla disc thingies, and have the shoulder things ready to sew. I am SO glad I won't have to worry about any artist alley work after the 17th, I need the extra time to finish!

Looking so awesome! What is the symbol made out of?


No progress for me.... Life got busy. Planning on "washing" the chainmaille tomorrow though.

The symbol is made out of EVA foam just like the breastplate ^^

Polishing foam tonight so the armour pieces will be done, just need to add the vinyl attachment. Picking up round foam tonight for Deedlit's armour detailing.

Plans have kinda gone to crap for two of my costumes. So I'm pulling out Equius and Gamzee again to help give Homestuck a proper sendoff before finally putting them into a state of semi-retirement, and I'll be using the magic of closet cosplay to put together a Sans costume. It's the lazy move he'd want me to pull. XD

Some progress! Sweet!

Washed the chainmaille - I threw it in the laundry tub and added soap and water. Agitated it a little. The water was black! It was gross! It helped a lot, but could use another round of washing.

Started finishing the bracers. One is backed onto material (some old jeans) and stitched on. Rather than adding grommets and lace up, I am chainmailling two "bracers" so it will hold onto my arm, while not getting too heavy and slide off.

I'll post photos soon.
