I’m cooking like it’s 20 days til the con as far as Nyreen progress goes. I’ve got Lexcon on the 16-17, too, and I leave for our Boston roadtrip on the 19th so I don’t have a whole lot of choice!
This past weekend I learned to put in contacts so I can have slitted pupils. They slide around a little, so unless you’re comfortable with fixing your contacts every 10-20 minutes I would opt for rounded pupil ones. I’m probably picking some up for D*C, but these will work for this weekend.
Under my mask I’m wearing a dive hood I picked up. I may try making my own for D*C, but again… it’s coming down to a time crunch for now.
The shoes are these Heel-less Booties from Amazon. I didn’t want to mess around with trying to build digitigrade feet that might fall apart on me, so I taped on toes made out of that poly-fill foam you can get from Jo-Ann’s. Ritzy made my boot covers, and all I’ve got left is 1) the foam armor pieces and 2) learning to walk in the damn things.
***SIDE NOTE: I was playing Dance Central in that gif. I’m better at walking in these than I used to be, but oh my god do not play dancing games in them what in the hell is wrong with me.
LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES.
(I was actually fine. I promise.)
As of right now the cowl is completed and primed. The fabric skirt is made, but the belt is not so I can’t show it. The only things I have left to build are the belt, gauntlets, pauldrons, and leg spurs. I’ve got two weeks. Let’s do this. :)
