The Last Story

Cosplayer: Pez

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Showcased 19th October 2014

AyaCon 2013

20th July 2013: Overall 1 When you put it all together, it looks like this.

Buckle is store bought and then customised. Same for the belt.

20th July 2013: Bum cape 2 Aaaaand voila.

20th July 2013: Bum cape 1 It'd be faux suede one side and fur on the other.

20th July 2013: Sash Yurick's got 2 sashes in his waist. Both were handpainted because 1) I'm too stingy to pay for new fabric when I can use leftovers at home and 2) I can get a more accurate pattern that way.

Fear the Vouis Luitton.

20th July 2013: Eyepatch Veg tan leather, hand dyed. The studs are just glued on.

20th July 2013: Vambrace I forgot to update this journal, oops.

Worbla + foam for this one.

20th March 2013: Sword 7 Weathering, followed by acrylic varnish, and it's done.

This beast is quite weighty and definitely not con safe!

18th March 2013: Sword 6 A basic paint job using acrylics. Now the dirt/weathering is being airbrushed on.

I think I like it better when it was just solid, flat black. XD;

18th March 2013: Sword 5 Assembly. The black is just gesso.

18th March 2013: Sword 4 Made the crest of the sword using clay. Then casted 2 copies out of resin.

18th March 2013: Sword 3 More sword progress. This part is made of worbla and foam.

12th February 2013: Sword 2 Every sword needs pork pies for ears.

31st January 2013: Trinklets 1 That dangly ball thing. This was "CAT'S EYE LIKE CRYSTAL SPHERE BALL 40MM" from eBay and cost me all of 6USD, from China. It even arrived with its own little wooden stand, it's so cute! Might buy all the other colours and line them up in front of the telly...

It's now surrounded by polymorph and a bracer buckle for the "belt" to thread through.

31st January 2013: Hip pouches Made of fake leather. There's a hoop on the back for the belt to go through. Just started shading them, the one on the left is done, hopefully it's made a difference.

30th January 2013: Sword 1 So far, left to right:

1. Paper template
2. Base built using mounting board, foam board, foam and wood
4. Carve expanding foam. Turns out my foam application technique needs refining, because there are lots of gaps
5. Apply papier mache, then sand
6. Apply gesso (the black stuff). Now waiting for it to dry, and then sand again

30th January 2013: Bracer 1 Made entirely out of worbla. It's painted now but I haven't taken a photo. Still needs a bit of black leather at the back where it laces up.
