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!
