|My nalbinding has improved a lot. These are only my experiments.|
Not gonna use this stuff for anything.
|It was really last minute, so we went to a second-hand shop for costumes.|
I made a tricolore cockade for fun: Tutorial
|Mjolnir comes from Jelldragon.com|
It's a reproduction from Børneholm.
|Some pearls were left over, mostly because how did I think this could pass as viking stuff?The scissors come from Jelldragon, and I love them, they're great seamrippers.|
|WIP: Bracers in foam.|
I tried working with foam for the first time. This tutorial just about saved my life.
After forming them with a heat gun I brought the half-finished bracers with me to show the vikings. A few of them were very sceptical until I explained I was going to paint them. (At this stage, they were very colourful. The underside of one of them was bright pink too, I don't think that helped.)
I found the perfect shoes at the local Goodwill. They're way too big even for my gigantic feet, but they're oh-so comfortable! I can't express how much I look forward to wearing costume shoes that won't try to eat my feet.
I was inspired by the shoes worn by Thorin Oakenshield and added some foam details onto them. In retrospect I'm not sure how great this idea was, cause I don't think the foam will survive long, but oh well.
