Hehehehe... well, you survived the last assault didn't you? How many costumes you have in place for RotS? Slightly under 2 months left...
Well, not good enough as I kept wearing my the same Gown again and again. Being short and fat didn't help much as I can only wear my own costumes.
For SW, I only got 1-3 costumes under my belt rite now. But since I'm a Lady of Leisure currently, I got time to make those I can make on my own, and hopefully afford those I have to send out (2 at least). Target is 7 SW costumes by May 16th, including those at hand and only need completing/upgrading, plus 2 pairs that kinda overlaps each other. By Nov, must have more than 10 to wear a different one every weekend!
Back to the Prologue elf... what are you using for the armour (sorry, I can't seem to get away from armour!)
This thick vinyl I gotten some time ago I hope. If not, I'll try to get Tikar-Getah (rubber floor mat). I'll love to use Aluminium Sheet with Craft Foam (latest obsession thanks to my Padawan) as it will give a better metallic look; originals were made from ABS or Styrene plastics with the heroes from Brass/Metal. Anyhow, since I can't start doing the Prologue one until I had completed the Elven Archer, even tho' I already got all the templates needed, haven't give the Prologue much thots yet.
rhyden said:What sort of paint is that Krylon? Fabric? Oil-based? Acrylic? Spray or bottle/jar/can?
Err.....I have no idea other than it's a spray paint popular among US Props Makers, but it's great on Plastic and doesn't run compared to Nippon Pyrox.
This is the official site for it but I think they had changed the packaging, naming and types so I can't tell which one is the ones I'm using.
Mine always have Titles like "Copper Brillance" or "18KT Gold Plate" or "Original Chrome" or "Sterling Silver" etc and the bottle is slim.
