im doing a Stellvia cosplay for local event in feb, Shoujin Ritsuo to be precise, and ive been playing around with ideas for the belt and reached what i think is the best option. just wanted to share it and hear if anyone has some advice or better alternatives
will try to post some sketches by tomorrow, but in the meantime ill just try to be as descriptive as i can.
so basically, i want to make it out of wood, and carve out the details. but since its a belt, it has to be removable. so i was thinking of cutting out 2 identical semi-circular shapes to make up the bulk of it.
the front grey part, and the distinct back part, will be separate from these 2 halves.
the two semi-circles will be connected at both ends via springs, that way it wont fall off for being loose, but ill still be able to take it off. then the front part and the back part are to attach somehow to their respective sides so as to hide the springs and make the whole thing look seamless. im still unsure how ill do that.
anyway, thats about it, i know how to go about painting from other threads.
so what does everyone think? anything at all i need to take into account?
any advice is greatly appreciated.
heres a quick pic i threw together for reference.
