Looking back, I'm proud of all the hard work we put into these pieces. It was my first time making armor and working with fur. The construction was tricky, especially when it came to the paws. I try to challenge myself whenever I make personal costumes, and I got what I asked for. ^^;;
Brittany was a tremendous help and I'm grateful she was down for the ride. We had many late nights at the studio watching movies and drinking coffee while we worked.
We used sharpie to draw on guidelines before cutting the foam.
When suede and fur take over the studio. (ﾟДﾟ；)
These paws were trial and error with a lot of faith. I made several mock-ups before finalizing the design. They have a cardboard skeleton to give them structure and were stuffed with batting for shape.
Packed and ready for Anime Central 2016!
The Artist Alley is a great place to take refuge during the convention. xD
Thanks for joining me on this throwback journey! After looking at all these photos, I think I want to dust this costume off and wear it again to another convention. :P
Until next time, take care! xx
