Edge Maverick
Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope

Cosplayer: Plasticsharkattack

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

4th October 2011: boots!!! finally my boots are complete~
so happy! they actually turned out good!
very excited now :)

30th September 2011: Boots I have started on the boots :) they are half completed now, just need to make all the details for the sides of them :D
cannot wait to get them done!

13th September 2011: The Sword Okay well I'm perhaps 50% done on sword? So far I have cut the basic shape out of plywood which is pretty strong :) I have them sanded all the edges to ensure it is safe. Then, I gave it one coat of white paint - before the hard task of getting the blue LED wire around the edge. I had to drill tiny holes all the way around it and then tie the LED wire down with small wire. After making sure the LED was secure around the edge, I then used silicone to seal it down so that it wouldnt move anywhere! XD done one side so far, need to wait for it to dry overnight so that I can rotate it and do the other side.

12th September 2011: Leg Armour this has begun :)
Will post progress photos soon
XD

11th September 2011: What left to dooo I still need to do some stuff on the back, and some small bits on the front
Also need to finish off the leg armour pieces.
Make a neck-piece and add the armour pieces on to that...
Oh and make another piece for my upper arm...
And the sword... (in progress)
I'd guess I am 50-60% complete?
Hmmmm
Better hurry!!!

11th September 2011: Sword Today = must work more on the sword!

18th August 2011: Golden armour armpiece Today consists of spending the day making the bulkier, shaped golden armour piece... proving hard but I WILL DO IT! >.<

11th August 2011: Sword started on the sword base today! Will be working hard on it all weekend so fingers crossed I will get it finished :)

6th August 2011: SQUEE Wig and contact lenses have arrived, hip hip hooray!

5th August 2011: GLOW WIRE :) my glowing wire came today - which i will be using to make my Edge sword glow up ^_^ its actually *PERFECT* I cant wait to get started on making the sword now!

26th July 2011: YAY WIG ORDERED - YEAH MAN! standard 15-27 days wait >.>
but yeah, hope its gonna be good quality!

8th July 2011: Calm now! I was getting really stressed at this costume :( it just seems to be looking kinda shit at the moment, but I'm going to troop on and attempt to get more of the "shirt" done this weekend, i.e. get working on finishing all the frontal armour detail, etc... wish me luck >_>

7th July 2011: ARGH so ready to give up on this costume its turning out to look pretty shitty and stressing me out :'( meeeeeeeeh.

4th July 2011: My progress: Since I have had this planned for a while, I was also finishing my 2nd year at University so progress was slow but now I can focus on it! I had cut out the majority of the chest armour pieces - the process included using thick craft foam, papier mache-ing it, painting it and glueing it for a shiny finish. I have now had the chance to glue all the pieces onto my shirt. This is only the FIRST step in a long process! ;w; but this is my stage 1 progress anyways!

Just a Side note, you might need to add a hook at the back of the waist to synch it up and make it look less Tunic like

but otherwise.. LOOKING EFFING SWEET DUDE! Wig and ALL!
