So, I've been working on a costume for months now and not talking at all about it because I was so worried about the progress. But tonight, I'm unveiling the progress. After months of welding, sanding, re-welding, airbrushing, gluing, carving, all that jazz, the Draenei costume is getting close to pulling together.
So, behind the cut are pictures of me in the almost finished stilts- all they need is some padding on the bottom, hooves, and me learning how to walk in them properly. In some pictures I threw on the gloves, shirt, and belt to show them as they are- headpiece is still in the works, as are pants (though the pants will likely be solid black).
Please excuse my messy look and any weird faces I happen to be making; I was concentrating on not falling and breaking an ankle. Getting used to a whole new height and center of gravity isn't easy! XD Also, don't mind the cats and dogs. They insisted on being in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE somehow. (The cats are Aggro, Krasus, and Pocket Onyxia. The black and white dog is Kujo. I don't think the Saint Bernard, Vash the Stampede, snuck into any pics though.)
Lots of pics behind the cut. Don't mind the dust bunnies made of fur, when you have a Saint Bernard even daily sweeping doesn't stop the fur tumbleweeds from forming. :P( Click her for peectures of a Draenei in progress!Collapse )
Obviously, there's a lot more to it then that. I have blue body paint, white contacts (except for the pupil, I can't be blind AND on stilts), and a wig with horns. I have two weeks till I leave for Blizzcon, and I'm entered in the costume contest there. Any feedback is welcome, though this is a very rough draft (every inch of these stilts will be covered).
Lots of work left to do. @_@ I might go insane.
