SDotP: Drafting Armor

*scarlet demon of the pavement

I've been working a little on how I want to put together the armor for Kaito.
I want it so I can bend my body and limbs, without any problem or discomfort, so it will be a very demanding project, once I get into the MAKING of it, but as the title says..
I've made some small 3D drafts of what I've imagined it to be, so far.

This first picture is the body armor, yes. It's very simple, but it is only paper, so no greater details.
I might add some more ribcage armor, but it really depends on what I'm going to work with in the end.
The long choppy piece, will also be armor, which will follow my spine, as if the armor actually is a piece of me.

This is the 'prototype' of the armor rings, which I'll make 10 of total, all to fit each individual finger.
Since it's paper, I couldn't bend out the shape as it's supposed to go, but I've gotten a feeling of how I need to put it together and what size it'll be in the end.

Kensington Gardens

I was in the mood for a shoot today, so me and mustachefriend just hurried a quick shoot.

Today I've been tumblrin' too much Peter Pan, so I couldn't help myself. Peter Pan is my favorite character of all time, the mysteries and the theories that haven't been made official. He's definitely a big inspiration in my life.
This is just a closetplay, but I will be making a real cosplay of him as soon as possible.

And OMG, it's so hard smiling for real on pictures! I need to work on my cockiness.

Future plans: J-popcon 2011

Just a quick one, to let you all know what I'm up to, the next few months.
Plans again partain my lovely partner in crime, Mie. /<3

For friday, we're doing Macross Frontier, which I'm extremely excited for, it's one of my most treasured series, and I'm happy it gets much more spotlight , than it've had in the past.
To mix things up a bit, I'm going as Sheryl and she as my Alto.

I've went over a few outfits, and originally decided on the green tunic one, but I changed my mind to one of her jumpsuits instead. Very excited to be a girly girl.

Saturday we're keeping up our Vocaloid trend, and going as the vocaloid adaption of Scarlet Demon of the Pavement, featuring Kaito, me, and Meiko, Mie.
Also going on stage with this, and working hard on making this a perfect skit. Imo, we'll either make or break, but I hope we'll succeed in make a show people 'll remember.

All in all, I think this J-popcon will be one for me to remember.
I'm very excited to see everybody else's cosplays as well.

Genki 2011

Genki is over and after a con you're supposed to write a con-review, but I suck at those, so I'll just say what I want to about what I want to 8D

Even with the stuff I'll get to later, I think this is one of the cons I've enjoyed the most, I've talked to a lot of new people, made new friendships and gotten closer to people I've talked to before. And the drama was at a minimum (at least what I know of).
(Sasha, Aybike, Emi, Bara, Barbara, Hayes, Kristine, Yoshu, Oni, Samie, Tatianna, Anja, Lina, Emi, Nadia, Mustachebuddy, Bunbun, Hopy, Rose, Lea,  still more, but these did most // Everybody loves their name on someone else's blog 8D)

This was also me and my baby's first danish con together as a couple, and it was great having her at my side all the way through, everybody be so jell-o ~ 8D

Saturday we had signed up for the cosplay show, with both of ours first cosplay skit, the nerves, the nerves!!
The whole experience up untill standing on stage, wasn't all that pleasant, not because I was freakishly nervous, the conditions was just horribad. But I'm not gonna whine.

The stage it self, was much bigger than what we'd expected, so I think that kinda messed up our act slightly, that and the lighting and bass, but can't do nothing about that now, so whatevs!
All in all, it was a good learning experience, and I'm happy that a lot of people enjoyed our small act.

If you've seen the video, you'll know we won "Crowds favorite", and I'm still surprised about that, but it's always pleasant to win, yes? 8D
The rest of the con, we just chilled with everybody and enjoyed the company very much.

Also, here's just some pictures of how I did the print on Ivan Fiore's T-shirt

Signing off by saying that my Sheryl and Klan wig arrived monday, and they're both gorgeous!
