Because no one besides myself (and my LJ watchers) have ever seen what went into making Envy's True Form head (which we all know by now it isn't the True true form), I decided to make a little compilation from start to finish of every picture I took along the way.

So enjoy the labor of love stemming back to Summer 2007 ^^

The Philosopher's stone can be see here: [link]

And the full Envy cosplay can be seen here: [link]

Wow. Just... wow.

It's a shame to hear you were unable to complete the body due to space, although that makes a lot of sense. Seventeen feet of prop is a difficult thing to house, especially in the spacially-challenged environment of an apartment. I hope that one day you are given the space and still have the creativity to complete the project; it would be an amazing feat.

Rock on, yo.

...if you make that a fullbody cosplay I will love you more than I do already for just making the head.
& THAT WOULD BE A WHOLE LOT OF LOVE. XD

Sadly that would be 17 feet, and I don't have the space for it (I tried though, but it didn't work out)

Aw. D: Um. You could be a stumpy Envy. Slightly smaller than required? You would be raped at cons. In a good way.

Well I wish I could have also completed the body, but then I wouldn't have been able to fit it in my car/apartment XD. But thank you very much!

well the body would have to be enormous(and heavy)

Not so much heavy (it wouldn't have been more than 25 lbs), just the bulk of it would have been a pain XD

I don't know if I've even taken that many photos in my life. I've never heard of Envy but it looks like a pro job.
