I finally got round to properly attempting to use Worbla and it is actually really easy to use! This is the silver section of the chest armour which attaches to the cape at the shoulders, the blue and black sections of armour are being made from leather
8th December 2013: Cape- day 1 I decided to work on the cape today since I thought it would be a nice relaxing part of the costume to make.... it wasn't, AT ALL! it does this weird thing where it pleats horizontally down the back and then vertically along the shoulders (as in reference) and I really don't want to use any visible seams :(
After spending most of the day doing some very creative pinning and sewing I may just about have it figured out -_-
1st December 2013: Sleeve Scale Armour I think I've figured out how to mimic the scale armour cheaply and fairly easily! I've used diamond shaped pieces of foam sandwiched between two layers of silver latex sheeting (glued using copydex for the test but will be using proper adhesive for the real thing) I can then use a marker to add shadow in the groves between the shapes, the end result is close enough for me to be happy with it and still retains the stretchiness of the latex XD
9th November 2013: Cape Fabric My original plan to use my Scarlet Witch cape for this didn't work out as it's the wrong shape/weight and just doesn't look right... so I've ordered 4 meters of red(poly)wool!!
Can't wait to get properly started!

Question: Do you currently have cosplay plans for LFCC Saturday? If not, could I maybe persuade you to do Thor? I know you said at LSCC you were thinking about it, and I'm really hoping to get a whole group together :3

Yeah I can definitely do it! That would be amazing!
