Sooooo, yeah. I FINISHED
For those that recall my previous WIP, I was working on a Syndra costume to wear at conventions (and if I haul ass, the S3 World Championship games
). The most grueling task was making her armor. I have NEVER made armor for a costume before, so I tried several materials before shoveling out the coin to get some Worbla :I Pricey as fuck, but after using it, I see why so many cosplayers would swear by it. Sturdy and easy to shape... and light enough to wear for hours at a time :3
Also, I know the helmet jewel and the arm cuff jewels look like they are different colors. I used the same color for them, however
Truth: I painted them with an iridescent nail polish that looked like a heliotrope color, so it looks blue from one angle, but purple from another
(I intended on getting some extra heliotrope stones to add to the helmet, in lieu of any other pretty glowy materials.... because I can't work LED or anything like that yet :C).

So, now to haul more ass into the sewing
