Hey folks, I'm back again with a WIP wednesday edition of Mikey Does Cosplay. It'll be a short entry this week with my continued inability to show you progress on what I'm making for myself, but that suit of armor I've been working on continues to slowly grow and become more complete. At this point I've finished building all of the torso pieces and now have the tassets done too!
For those of you unfamiliar with armor anatomy, the tassets are the parts that sit on your hips/outside of the upper leg.
So without further ado, let me just show you what all that looks like...
The other fun new things I've started working on are another commissions from my cousin & his fiancee who're doing Sokka & Suki from Avatar the Last Airbender! Thankfully they won't be needing them until next April, so I haven't had to start on the actual costumes yet, but I have made the base of Sokka's weapons and I'm excited to finish them!.
The other update I wanted to tell everyone about is that I've been doing more work on the site, so there are a few new pages and updated info! First of all, I've finally started putting together the Materials section of the Cosplay Help Desk. It isn't complete by any means, but I have started working on it and will continue adding things little by little. For everything on there, you'll see photos of the material itself, an explanation of some benefits and how it can be used, and some examples of things I've made using it (with photos of course). I also have links to where you can buy it online (most of it's through Amazon), and where you can find it in stores, if you can in fact find it in a store.
The second site update I've been working on (though it's not live yet) is a blog index. I'm kind of frustrated that Square doesn't have a tool to do this automatically, or at least not one I've found yet, but I want you to be able to access any blog entry more easily than the current method, which is to go back through all of them until you find it. I thought the "Featured" blog post feature that has them on the main page would keep all of them, but alas it only has the most recent 10. So I've put together the full list myself, tags and all, for your simplified browsing and will try to keep it updated as much as possible! You can find it in the footer below, or right here!
Thanks, my dearies, for stopping in, and Happy Thanksgiving!
