I'm really excited for you guys! ^^ Have fun and take lots and lots of pictures!

Now that you mention it you're right, the Rose would probably be even better for Eirika! I just got one in 25/24B and it is is actually very curly. You can brush it into waves, but it's still very very flippy at the ends. And it is also layered.

After going through three testbuilds, I was finally able to built the cardboard base of one of Ephraim's shoulder pauldrons yesterday. Now the hard (more like long) part... the paper macheing... T_T

EPHRAIM SHOULDERPAAAAD~ Looking epic Luther! <3

And Senti, your Nino is adorable! ^___^ You make a perfect mage~ >D Ohoho~


In other news, for Nephenee, I dropped her for Anime North and I'm finishing it later. >_> I want to get her done for Otakuthon instead. Yaaay Canadian conventions!

BUUUT. I finished all of her undersuit and most of her oversuit, a lot of her blue strips are done, and I coated her armor in model magic too! (Though it cracked, I gotta fill the cracks with something. >_> Suggestions? I was thinking white glue...)

Oh! And I have her spear. I'm totally speechless whenever I look at it. o_o My friend's dad made it for me and it's utterly gorgeous. I'll take pictures soon after I age the corners a bit to give it a more weapony look. <3

'Gratz on getting the wig Leradny! Can't wait to see it! =D

Duuude, everyone has so much progress. Great job everyone!

Luther, you have epic papercrafting skillz. Seriously. -envy-

Eeek badass progress, guys!! Yay Leradny got her wig ^.^!! I love your shoulder armor so far, Luther! Serials >.<!!!

And for a first prop, I love your Killing Edge, Kandybar XD! The red tip at the end helped me identify it too XD. That or I play too much of Sacred Stones XD.

@Hamano: hmmm you can try the glue; tho if you're painting the model magic anyway, I'd try filling in the cracks with the paint if they're small enough.

Hurray Leradny for your wig! DDD W00T~!

@snowkirby: I'm spray painting it though, the cracks will DEFINITELY show. >_> I need a way to seal them and make it smooth. Modge Podge maybe? Hmm...

Actually, a good way to seal cracks in model magic is more model magic! Mix it with some water to make it thinner/runnier, and it fills in cracks really well.

brb finishing my costume why am i posting

I wanted to start with Lute's cloak today but I've got no idea how to do this. Does any of you have some advice for me? :'D

ZOMG Fanime! ::flails about the thread::

Well, I think the sword is done. I've painted an edge on, and my sealer dries matte so I think I'll leave it off and hope the paint doesn't melt all over my costume. (Does that even happen?)

I rinsed Ephraim today, and while I think I've solved the bleeding problem (washing a wig with shampoo seems to cause the bleeding?) IT'S TOO BLUE BAWW BAWW BAAAWWWWW. I think more green ink washed out than blue... T_T Back to the dyeing drawing table...

Yay Leradney got her wig! And... Famine woo! *flails*

@Senti: D'aww thanks, but papercraft isn't that hard! Go to nintendopapercraft.com and try printing one out, something with a small number of pieces and with big pieces like the Gossip Stone, and try it! It's fun! : D

@Snowkirby: Cereal. Cinnamon cereal. 8D So I found another version of the model of Marth's trophy, except this time with the textures applied to it. Do you want some close up shots of the embroidery or are you good?

@Luther: I think I'm set =X but I can always use more refs and see if those are better :3. I just need to see the swirls to try and fix mine as best as I can lol! I wish I didn't start the swirls first ;;;; Sorry about your wig tho =X.

@Kandybar: lol I don't think paint can melt, unless you're going somewhere extremely hot o.o ;;;;!! In which I think you would burn up before the sword does lol. You'll be fine ^_^.

@Willes Actually, I'm stuck on Lute's cape too. And I need it by... ...today? FML. The only reason I'm posting is because I'm at school right now actually. >_>; -spazzing-

@Luther I've tried (and failed) at basic papercrafting. Nyahh. xD;

Annnd I took some pics of what his armor looks like under the cape! His tunic was covering it up a little so I deleted it so he looks pretty weird... o_o;

@Senti: Aww... xD; What papercraft did you try? Maybe it wasn't such a good one for a beginner. And it's alot easier to use cardstock instead of printer paper too, what paper did you use?

Wig still makes me bawww. I don't think it was that the green dye washed out more, I think my dye was too blue in the first place. I made another batch of dye that'll have to sit for a couple weeks and I'll be removing the present dye job shortly. Well I'm on my third Ephraim wig and my third dye job... so... doubley third time the charm, right? 8D

@Luther: thank you so much ^_^!!! I had the front swirls right but I messed up the rest ;;; (and the "french" flower in the back was my original idea for connecting them! Urgh I shoulda done it XD). I had a snapshot of the back of his armor but my email hates my Wii so I can't send the pictures :/. Thank you so much for the refs again, and I wish you luck on your Ephraim wig!!

edit--Marth brooch negative mold pics! Still needed drying so I took it out of the plastic easter egg I was using. Has a few scratches/knicks so I smoothed them as best as I could. More info is in the photo desc tho lol! I'm not sure if I should remake the negative mold tho, b/c I can't say if it's look any better than this ^_^;;;..

Hey, everyone--I am BACK from Fanime '09! It's a lot earlier than I would have liked (my mom needed me because of an infection in her foot that's making it hard for her to walk), but don't worry! Pictures will be coming up sooooon.
