Please Note: This costume has been completed. This photo was removed from my shared account with my fiancee to feature here in my portfolio. I left the description the same as it was on the previous account. To see the finished costume, visit my shared account with my fiancee: Piperonni
EDIT: Wow! I just smacked my forehead. I cannot believe I did that. Two of the front panels are backwards. They should each be on the opposite's side. Fixing that right now. Next update, they will be where they should.
I've got about 10 or so days left until AWA. This is definitely a costume I never thought would get made, especially out of leather. Keeping my fingers crossed. I just hope the end product looks as fantastic as the progress.
All that's left is to dye the remaining pieces, finishing detailing a few pieces, add the embellishment in the stomach region (that blank area), finish the boots, finish the leg armor, adjust the hood, and try to complete a sword in time for the convention.
Woohoo! I finally put up a picture of our Chrono Trigger group! It was actually taken on stage after our performance, which we did at Wai-Con in January 2012, in which our group won Best Skit! Hooray!
The Robo costume was actually started earlier in January, after initially joking that I would fill in the gap in their group by making a GIANT ROBOT. And... it actually worked out pretty well! It took a while to get this done though, and I ended up working pretty hard and stressing out, but so much thanks to the group for helping me do little things here and there. Specific thanks too to Lisa for drafting the legs, torso and speaker when I was too dead from stress to work my head around the shapes, and for also weathering the paint when I was at work and didn't have time to come over.
Robo is made out of a micture of craft foam (mostly yoga mats), hula hoops, cardboard and assorted bits and pieces of plastics and junk. The eyes are also made from LEDs and light up, which are pretty cool! The only bad thing about this robot was that it had limited movement, and also I wore it on a very, VERY hot day in summer, so it was kind of like... cosplaying in a portable sauna.
Still, it was heaps of fun cosplaying in this group, and I'll have more photos up soon!
