I'm definitely excited about con, but keep at it, you will be able to finish the armor soon, I'm sure.

Not ready yet! I have some details on soul, details on Rumia, an optional detail on Mikuo, A collar and tie for Satoko, and a bunch of little details that add up to a bunch of stuff on Red XIII.

Armor is now the bane of my existence....

I really hope that wonderflex arrives soon x_x *just ordered it*

beyond that im rushing to the finish line with my cosplay and Im not so sure I can finish in time

how are the rest of you doing?

Just curious what you are using the Wonderflex for.  It is great stuff, really thin, but it has a cross hatch patterning that is really annoying if you are using it for exterior pieces.  Another product that is nice for armor is Sintra, an expanded PVC foam board.  You can usually find it at sign shops, and they let us have scraps to play with.  Sintra is also a lot easier to find, comes in lots of colors, cheaper, and you can paint it!  Something to keep in mind if the Wonderflex is late, or you don't like working with it.

Sintra is easier to cut if you heat it first.  It may not be quite as flexible as Wonderflex, if you are doing 90 degree bends and stuff, you may prefer the Wonderflex, but if you are trying to make shin gaurds or shoulder pads, or something like that.  check out the Sintra.

I am mostly done. Just a lot of small things to do for my gijinka and Tokimemo girl.
And apparently I'm throwing together an Allen for a while, since my friend wants one to go with her Lavi, and she made two shirts. x

Im using it for the armor of my Black Rose which is pretty much some arm guards, a bra/breast plate and some plates that cover her thighs.  : o Ive made a foam base to mold it to, and I was told it was paint able and have researched a few methods of smoothing it out.

But Sintra huh? I'll have to look in to it. Do you think I could find it at a craft store?

Try sign shops in your area.  It is often used to make large signs, because you can attach large photos to it, and it is easy to bend when heated.  It also comes with an adhesive backing for some styles.  I wouldn't recommend using that type if you are heating it though.   ;D  They will most likely give you scraps to play with if you ask.  My wife got some from Multi-Craft Plastics here in Eugene.  They have a Portland store as well.  You may give them a look see.

Well I tried it out and it looked alright though I am not sure if I am going to do it or not. And it is very hard to get off, I still have the remains on.

What I did was tried doing my makeup with a highlighter. It showed up just fine in the black light and when I turned it off you couldn't see it at all but when I turn it back on it is all smeared from when I washed my face XD

Someone else who is trying to change their hair color.  I am going as Hohenheim from FMA this year.  Problem is my beard is brown.  I am going through stages of bleaching it blonde.  It is getting closer...  I also am having my mom help me style my wig later this week.  Getting my wig styled and my beard bleached.  GAH!!  What I go through for cosplay.  I am going to be awesome though.  I finally found that long brown dress coat he wears!  I am still trying to make up my mind about wearing a green necktie or navy blue bowtie.  I may alternate on different days.  Also the Hohenheim from FMA Brotherhood appears to be much darker and, well, evil.  I can play evil... HA HA HA    Edward.  Why did you burn down my house?  (glare)   ;D
