Costume work

Hey guys, it's been a while hasn't it! I have been busy working away on my Artemisia costume and I have to say it is coming along quite well. I got all my thermoplastic work finished up, which is good since I'm now completely out of worbla, and now I'm on to finishing and painting and riveting. Also still need to make a skirt, but I'll get there. Anyways, progress pics? These are mostly of the swords plus a few of the spine piece.

Scale drawing for the pair of swords.

Shot of the detail work. This is about where I started thinking "what have I gotten myself into?!"

Cuttin out the foam.

Carving out the center for the dowel.

Sanding down the edges of the blades.

Candy colored swords!

Adding the detail lines to the hilt to be carved out.

Patterning for the spine spikes.

Patterning for the vertebrae.


Adding some details and using up scraps.

Finished detail on the hilts.

Swords pre-paint.
Testing out the spikes on the body.

And from the back.

Anywho, that's a lot of pictures so I'll stop for now. I'll try to put some more up when I get the painting for the bodice pieces done. Should be soon!
