About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This was my first costume that I actually made. Please message for details.
The automail was made of Wonderflex, which was heated, shaped, and attached to a glove and leotard. I added and sanded about 20 layers of gesso, then painted the whole thing. A different shade of silver with a little black mixed in was used to give the automail an aged look. I did the same to my leg piece. This was my first prop making experience. In general I'm quite proud of it. In the future, it may be one I come back to and remake.
The other piece of this costume that was difficult was the belt. As such a thick belt was meant to fit on someone without curves, it took a lot of fitting, shaping, and angling to get the belt to both look and fit right. I was incredibly proud of it at the end though.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Good thing I'm left-handed... ;)
