Fairly pointless progress update.
Begun work on Rohan’s pants and in a moment of idiocy worthy only of Okuyasu, forgot to double check with the ref if they had pockets or not. Turns out they do and I had to go back and sew in pockets after only having gold things down the sides/connecting to shoes to go.
I also swapped the rhinestones on the vest with round buttons, I was really tempted to go full bling and do a cosplay inspired by the Swarovski crystal SAS but I think, that that idea is best saved for the same version outfit as the figure.
Also in Armageddon progress, cut out the wedges of a pair of boots I got for my second Lucy costume. They were perfect except for the lack of strange round things, having wedge heels and being the wrong colour. I prettied up the gloves I purchased for my first Lucy cosplay with some lace and a few swarovski crystals too. In the cover art it looks like she has some kind of design on them and they looked plain without.
I need to put small domes on the ends of the fasteners so that the stay down when posing but aside from that, it’s only pants, earrings and belt to go. I feel so prepared.
Totally getting the progress train moving and finishing things lately so I should be updating throughout the week with bits of my overload costume as I finish them.
For now, here’s the main bits of the claspy things for Rohan. They’re craft foam, heated to shape then coated in mod-podge with supports on the back so they can stand things banging into them/the camera strap from the camera I’ll be using as a prop resting on them. You may notice the foam on the cut out ones is different from the sheet I was initially using? I can’t cut stuff out for shit, how embarrassing.
They’re not a+ quality but when it’s not a close up shot, the small imperfections really aren’t visible.
Thought I’d post a tiny bit of original content of what I have to show so far for Auckgeddon.
The dress still has a lot of work to do on it but it’s approaching looking similar to the cover (good god it’s short, I’ve never made a skirt this short before, it’s almost scary even though I have no issue with tiny shorts and bikini bottoms).
I never meant to make this ver of Lucy but playing around making her dress out of spare white cotton sateen and then not wanting to literally just have a recolour of the same cosplay I ended up modifying it into this. I’ll be wearing her Sat morning, still doing her outfit from the very end of the manga in the afternoon.
