I like shopping list paper to remind myself of smalljobs required to finish projects.
Here we have a few fixes for Rachi Sitra. Some cosplay contest notes, Rebel Legion Notes and…. Darth Talon notes 🙂 Yep I want to try and aim for the next round of conventions as I do not know when my current good health will last 🙂 I am nicely full of protein and B vitamins and low on steroids (had a high dose) and I can press my face and not scream in pain.
Anyway these notes mean I can start work in the morning 🙂
Oh I even found rigid eva and thin sticky eva. Time to trial some soft armour.
Heh, my last two reblogs both had a feathery theme… so now for something completely different!
Tentacles! So my previous set of lekku work best when worn SWTOR style. But with Rachi I need to wear them slightly further forward. It causes more folds on the underside than I want but I could do some careful surgery I could quite quickly remove them of make them really adorably like wee fat rolls. I will do so later. I have finally got some more paint to mix to shade and also do more permanent markings (the liquiset paint came off in the rain!)
But I am also nearing completion of my next set and they are finally starting to look like they grew out of the head form.
They started off looking like some mutant whole chicken ready for roasting, if you bred your chicken to have bendy legs 1m long….
Then a very pimply uneven scarred set of things growing from the desk. And finally now I have some skin texture, but I would like to make the face and ends a little smoother.
So next bit of progress…. SINUS INFECTION HAS BEEN BANISHED!!!!!!!!!! *pretend flail because there is too much RA activity to really* By the power of Roxy no less 😉 Roxithromycin anyway. This means being able to wear these lekku! So I’m going to be working on refitting a few costume elements for both costumes 🙂
Ummm.. just wow. I had no idea I was heading up to SGH for a photoshoot that Thomas so kindly wrangled for me. I had a “dur” moment when I realised though… ehem. There is a latex bald cap glued over my ears as well as the lekku as well as the ear buds so I missed most of what anyone said unless they were speaking directly at an ear bud so I blame the costume. Yeah. These silly costumes, to quote from another franchaise.
This one photo makes up for oh so much trouble getting to and from D*C as well as some stinky health issues that plagued both Celebration and D*C.
SGh for the art and letting me be truly Sith, Kristy for so patiently painting my back and working with products you had never tried before and to Thomas for organising a last minute photoshoot with SGH and for being my eyes and ears and at times sensible adult.
