So I have an actual project in process for Blizzcon, even though I wont be able to go myself.
Making this priesty outfit for a fellow WOW priesty player to wear at the con.
Still working out the exact details and construction.
Plan to do this in a couple pieces.
Starting with a basic medieval cotehardie type shape dress for the under gown in the royal blue from this pattern and will add gold detailing.
Then will make a silver/grey overdress with gold details altering this pattern.
May need to add some type of an apron/belt piece for those front and back parts that are peeking out in the grey/silver.
Will then need to add some dark blue/gold bracers, shoulder/mantle armor piece and a headpiece/collar.
Will post some more once I have cut into the fabric and gotten started.
Have about a month to finish and ship it off.
Still need to decide exactly how I will construct those last armor pieces so they can handle being shipped about and still remain stable and retain their shape……
So a bit of progress done. I got the blue under gown completed…………I like the pretty hem trimmings.
I also did my first attempt at casting resin gems. Was a little harder than I expected to get the gems out of the molds, I ended up having to cut the molds away to get them out. Was a little unhappy about that since it means those molds cannot be used again. It scratched up the surface a touch, but that was easy to buff away with some sand paper. I also wasn’t too happy with the dyes I got, the color out of the cast was a very light grey/blue. However, following the advise of fellow cos players I painted the backs with a dark blue nail polish. I think they look pretty snazzy. Just need to figure out the whole getting em out of a mold better.
Though I will need to make another set of each size for the shoulders.
