Cosplay WIP: Rider (Fate/Stay Night) #3

Hey guys! DarthNancy here!
Long time no see! 

I got really busy working on things for Fanime and Anime Expo, and then I got really lazy to post stuff. But here I am again, posting another WIP post for Rider (although this costume is actually done now!). Check out the other WIP posts if you haven't yet. WIP#1  WIP #2

Boot Detailing: Rider has a very small amount of “armor”. I put that in parenthesis because it doesn’t work very well as armor but I guess if we get technical that is what it is. Her armor consists of two parts: a smaller rectangle shape and a larger bell shape. I had some difficulties with the second bell-shaped piece because when I kept drawing it out, it kept looking like a penis. This *really* bothered me because I didn’t want the end result to look like that!!! I did what I could but I guess it is inevitable that it has that kind of shape. Blah. She also has a small amount of trimming at the top of her boots. I had to measure the area on my thigh that these would sit on and use that to know how long the trimming needed to be. I drew the draft on card stock and then transferred it to EVA foam. I shaped the armor with a heat gun and cleaned up the edges with a soldering tool (although looking back on it I should have dremmeled the edges).

Cosplay Spotlight: Shizuku (Hunter xHunter)

Hello Generation of Cosplay!
Today I have a special treat for you~ A full spotlight of my Shizuku cosplay!

This is a cosplay that has grown on me a lot. Firstly, I am such a huge fan of Hunter x Hunter! It has definitely become one of my favorite anime/manga of all time! And Shizuku is one of my favorite characters! She is quiet and doesn't have a big role in the series, but she charmed me either way! Her ability to summon a crazy demon-looking vacuum and the fact that she wears glasses is so cool too! As soon as I saw Shizuku, I knew I wanted to cosplay her! So here's all the info you need to know about my Shizuku cosplay ^_^

Cosplay WIP: Rider (Fate/Stay Night) #2

Hey there everyone~ DarthNancy here!

I just wanted to share some small progress with my Rider cosplay. I have been mostly focused on making the mask for Rider right now. I have the shape cut out, the details laid out, and now I am priming it with PlastiDip! I have a few more coats to go before I can start painting it! But here it is below:

In the mean time I will be working on cutting out the shape of her boot armor, bracelets, and dress trimming from EVA foam while the layers of PlastiDip dry! Ideally, I want to paint everything at the same time so it will be the same shade of purple. I will keep you guys updated on my WIP!

Until next time!
