    Okay so I'm making a Big Sister cosplay for the upcoming MCM convention in London in May and thought it would be fun to share my progress.

    I first started off with the neck piece, I used an old mannequin and sculpted the neck piece shape and size. From here I was then able to cover the sculpture in plaster to get a mould of the neck piece which I then coated in resin and fibre glass to make the final neck piece.

    Once I had the neck piece I then sanded down all the edges to ensure there were no sharp edges and to neaten them. Next I added the first coat of primer i then sanded the neck piece again before applying a second layer of primer.

    I will be updating this as I make further progress ^^ hope you enjoy. I've not gone massively into detail just a rough outline of what I've done.

    Nice work.

    Make sure you have enough air flow or it's going to fog up and get stuffy fast.

    Haven't updated this in a while. Main bulk/frame of the costume has been completed primed and painted now. (cage still needs to be finished then primed) 22130_453851738115630_5317212898043114280_n.jpg 10407522_453851841448953_7561820106214467967_n.jpg 11264897_453851828115621_2655654468379519480_n.jpg 11045431_454363541397783_3139802247043472985_n.jpg

    Thankyou :) I've been using some machinery to save time on sanding, cutting materials etc and the only things that I haven't moulded and casted are the helmet and tank. Used a plastic globe for the helmet and plastic tubing for the tank
