Solving and destroying

Yeah the Wayward Wind is coming along nicely~ It's a lot lighter and not as thick as my old one, I'm really happy about it even though it's not finished yet! Still has to finish layering with "softis" and then glue, after that it's ready for paint! We'll see if it needs another layer of glue after the paint to get a bit shine on it, that was something I noticed that has to be done with the armor since it's not anymore going to be painted in only gold and silver so it doesn't get the shiny glitter so to say but the glue solved the problem very well.

In process and trying to blend the right color and also testing how it looked on the surface, the reason why I decided to layer it witch softis to get it more even but first to the store to buy materials!!!

Here you can see the armor, really having a hard time getting the right color and you can see how dull the suface is. You can also see the color difference it's going to get.

So as some problems got solved, other bigger problems came on the way...
I fucking can't cut fabric right on the first go so I have to buy more, guess if you can find it in a fabric store now? Nope, NADA, NIX, NOTHING!!! FUCK!!! Yeah...

For now I'll just try to do other things and calm down...And maybe come up with some other material that could replace it or look for a store online...

I'm also incredably happy that I got the shoes (almost) done!!! (Just needs a bit paint and then the glue layer.) But I was really worried because I had no motivation to do them, and then I did them like in two days!!! "Like, wow, I did them...WTF! :'D"

So now the only things that I worry about how to do on my cosplay is: How am I going to fasten some parts of the armor to the suit? Should I sew them or what? Will the glue hold? Will the armor stretch enough when I put it on and while moving? This is the biggest issue... and hopefully it would solve easily and fast! Tracon is coming with lightning speed and I'm nowhere near ready!!!
