Here is the top armor so far. I am having a bit of trouble getting the right proportions. I redid a couple of parts here and there, so that’s why I’m a bit behind then I wanted to be. My pieces are not in the fast mache yet, because I’m still considering redoing a couple of parts. The shoulder pieces seem too small, and I might do the bustier part in real fabric for better comfort and shape. I wanted to be consistent with the armor but when I was carefully watching the video the bustier actually appears to be in a fabric material and has a different shade of red. It matches the shorts of the outfit so maybe I’ll just do them in the same fabric. I’m not sure, still in great debate. Anyways, here is what I have come up with so far:
Front Armor. Your’ll noticed that I have bra cups, instead of doing it myself in foam board. I think its really important to get the right shape when doing the chest! Sounds silly, but I’ve seen some amazing cosplay’s and then it was ruined because the shape of the chest looked funny. I just bought bra cups from the fabric store, so I wouldn’t have to worry about that.
Armor Arm Pieces:
I redid the tail because it looked awful. I thought I could shape edges with the Fast Mache but its too hard! I recommend always trying to make the shape as close as possible before applying the Fast Mache, I’ll apply the Fast Mache to the tail soon:
If anyone is wondering how I am going to keep the helmet on, here is my trick. It actually works really well but I braid my hair before putting this on, so it catches better. It doesn’t hurt, but I am going to put a strap behind it for extra support.
Cosplay all together so far:
Sorry about the above photos, I don’t know why they came out so blurry. I’ll take better ones on the next update.
Contact photos are late, my apologies! They look pretty scary, I’m not sure if they suit Shyvana.
