(And Really... *I* haven't done a lot.)
Honestly, I haven't done much but window shop and make suggestions because my bff Corey
is the one who is REALLY helping me with this.
I'm going to Dragon*Con and he wants me to have at least a helmet to carry around. Can't wait to meet his Naast buddies!
You all know him as Siege Vand'alosh
. He was assisted by the gal you know as Sahirate aka Jen
. And by assisted, I mean she did 85% of the work. But Siege is impatient and couldn't wait for me to help with this.
So they went ahead and started making a helmet and boobie plates for me.
I am jealous of all the pictures people take of themselves making the armor, so I'm going to post the pictures they sent me.
A baseball helmet and a for rent sign.
Corey cut them all by himself.
All Fiberglassed up.HUGE THANK YOU to Jen. I really appreciate it. I'm buying her dinner at Dragon*Con
Now the colors.
I made my name a portmanteau of Cyar'ika (Sweetheart) and Uj (Cake) . And since *I* say Uj like the last sound in rouge (like the blush) I wanted the cheeks of the armor to be pink (like the... blush). And I guess, roughly translated, my name means "Sweetcake/s"
But hey, Siege was again, impatient and took spare pieces and played with the paint and design.
This really won't be the design, but I wanted to play with the colors... well... he did.
But yeah... it'll be neater, straighter lines, and I might let the paint actually dry before putting paint on it, but you know those silly boys. No patience for anything.:
HOPEFULLY ***I"LL*** get to work on it or SOMETHING when I go down there for Dragon*Con!
But thanks again to the two who got me this far. Dinner's on me.
And whatever else... I like writing Thank You Notes.
