Best Parade May 2011 London MCM Expo - Play Expo Best Costume

Watch on Youtube

14th February 2011: Skirt Details Well, spent the last 2 days straight (about 13 hours each day)working on the bottom half of the cosplay, and it's still not finished >.> I'm leaving the detailing as in the photo to the side for Midlands expo, then adding the rest ready for London expo.

Each of the long hanging down flaps took about 5 hours each to make. All of the runes were coppied as close to the reference picture as possible, and I think I made them quite accurate.

The eyes on the two long flaps are made from gems paint and foam sheeting instead of just painting them onto the fabric, so I'd get a 3D apperance.

The ourlines for all of the sections were traced from an enlarged reference picture, so I know they are as accurate as I can get them.

5th February 2011: Electronics Today I went shopping to try and find motors for one of my other costumes. However I ended up walking home with aload of other electronic stuff in my bags to play with.

The items in the attatched photograph will hopefully be put together to form the glowingness of the eyes for this costume. I have decided to add a switch into the circuit to make preserving the battery easier when walking around conventions, in order to save the hassle of taking out the batteries, like I was doing with previous costumes.

30th January 2011: Belt Today, Gone Tommorow I was origionally going to be working on the skirt today, however the fabric was still wet from washing it yesterday >.>,,, sooooo instead I decided to attempt making the belt.

I first did a paper template, then a cardboard ones (in the photo) I remade cardboard ones so I could keep them for furtue reference, and they'd be more durable then paper ones.

From the templates I cut the foam layers to shape (5)and glued together, leaving the funest, yet longest part, the painting!

29th January 2011: Eye Gems Finished Spent a few hours in the early hours of the morning finishing off the eyes for atleast the front of the costume, though thinking about it now I need to do 3 more for the back of the costume too,,, DARN. Maybe I should change the title to, 'Eye Gems Half Finished'.

27th January 2011: Small Progress, Lots of TIme Spent a few hours today painting >.>

Seems such a waste of time painting such small details, but hey. Hopefully the overall effect will be worth it!

I've decided I'll start on the smaller things first (for some unknown reason)

Also today I did a few tests with the fabric I bought (Lol, yeh I should have done tests before I bought several meters), and yey! Everything seems to work ^^

22nd January 2011: Eyes, the First Big Challenge Today was day one of this cosplay build, and, obviously the first thing to do is go out and buy the materials. However this first shop has been a bit of a disaster, with me ending up with mainly paints, but nothing to acctually paint on >.>.

I found the perfect size eyes for the details on the robes, but they only had them in brown, which means I get to spend this whole first day scratching off the backing to about 27 eyes -.-,, Hurrah!

Try wearing a turtle neck? It will save on smuding stuff etc etc etc!
Good luck with finishing it! (is having a day and half to make stuff as well) I'm sure you'll kick ass!

Silantre - 17th February 2011
I thought about that, then I thought about how warm this costume is going to be anyway, especialy with the mask >.>, hopefully any smudging paint will add to the aged effect of the cosplay XD

Ty for wishing me luck ^^ *hugs*, and good luck back to you, hurrah for cosplay marathons =P
