Queen of Blades update: September 20

So, yes. We were out of town this weekend so not as much got done as we were hoping, and a lot of what got done was the wings, so.. not a lot of pictures, sorry. I’d say we’re around 95% done just because of the amount of stuff we’ve had to do to finally get to this point, today we start mixing paint and painting the pieces of the costume.

Two of the dreads are now molded, the largest and smallest. I think we were planning on molding the medium one yesterday but I had work and I think Mario forgot, or he needed the board, or something. We have only one board we’re using for molding the dreads, so we can only do it one at a time.

The wing structure is almost finished being built. It was really awkward for a while because I had to wear the corset in order for the wings to be worked on, so they weren’t completely still (those things just kind of do their own thing if I even breathe) (which isn’t a bad thing to be honest, it’s like they’re alive and moving) so finally Mario built a stand for the corset to be attached to and finally I can see what the wings actually look like without having to look at a mirror.

So apparently this is the only picture I have to share this week, really sorry about that. Started on sculpting the heels on the shoes, I think they’re coming along really well. I’m using Magic Sculpt on the heels, easy to sculpt with and easy to sand and smooth.

We also cast another cowl, and this one came out a lot better than the other one (the other one just didn’t have thin enough edges, we didn’t close it tight enough, so we put extra mold straps on this one). I’m excited to practice glueing the thing to my face!

Well, that’s it for this week. Sorry that there aren’t more pictures to share. I’ve already said that once we start painting things, you’ll stop seeing pictures, but I might show the base coats. We are hoping to have all of this done in two weeks, so we’ll see!

I hope everyone’s costumes are coming along well! We’re at a month to go til Blizzcon, people!
