Daryan Crescend
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

Cosplayer: Pez

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

20th October 2010: DONE! Daryan is done!

Wearing this to Cosplay Fever Red book launch! See you there! >D

(Wow, abuse of the exclamation mark!)

17th October 2010: Mwahahaha Almost there!

10th July 2010: Still boot covers So I made both boot covers, put them on the shoes (2nd hand court shoes, £0.99 + £3.50 shipping on eBay) and proudly walked around in them. But then the girlfriend took a look and said,

"The covers are floppy at the top."


So I added red lining that's pre-stiffened with iron-on interfacing. Trying to make lining for something this irregularly-shaped was kind of hell. Anyway, I attached the lining and then sprayed some starch on for good measure. The covers are now drying on my door handles!

8th July 2010: Shoe covers Started making them today, and got one done in one night! This was the first time I tried making shoe covers actually. Before this I always just bought dirt cheap shoes and literally painted/glued things straight onto them. Not too shabby, heh? Nothing's attached to the shoe at all so I can reuse them for something else.

ETA: well it's not really done done yet. Need to paint the front and make adjustments to make it fit better, etc. I'll be buying one of those adhesive anti-slip soles so that I won't tear the covers at the bottom.

27th June 2010: Lovely textured ceiling. :D Haven't had the time to work on this for quite a while. The top is more or less finished and here's how it looks!

Not that it's visible in the photo, but I messed up when putting the white edging along the hood - the one on Daryan looks big and fat, whereas mine looked like any regular edge (although I already used curtain blackouts rather than bias binding). So I took it off and tried again, this time allowing more fabric and actually stuffed it with toy stuffing. Then plastazote teeth were glued on. So now there is a big white edge complete with teeth!

The top probably took 2 days in total.

I've discovered that the material is so stiff I can't raise my arms when wearing this. XD

17th May 2010: D*ckhead .............I don't know what to say.

(Call 0800 316 7447 for your nearest d*ckhead????)

(Sorry I've just had a bit to drink.)

16th May 2010: Top, without lining Pre-lining. Sewing the pieces together was so difficult because the material was completely unstretchy. Lost count of how many times I got poked by the needles that held the sleeves together as I sewed.

16th May 2010: Top Gills! GILLSSSSSSS!
