Worn to MCM Expo London and Cardiff Comic Con!

Credit for the above 3 go to mega_eye on flickr. Heres the full sets from the con!

I had so much fun wearing the cosplay and met so many great people! Thanks so much guys!!

I also wore it the Cardiff Comic Con the following weekend where I won the cosplay prize! I was awarded around £150 of goodies, which has essentially offset the cost it took to make this in the first place!!

Day 40

Wow. I am so sorry for not being able to post for a long time. I have been doing bits and bobs for the cosplay since I last posted so I shall update!
I have purchased my ears and blue contact lenses! I haven't tried the contacts yet but the ears did need some work. I got the offical LOTR latex ear tips as they had pretty good reviews. They fit well etc etc The only catch is that their this horrible sickly pale colour that I think must be humanely impossible to actually be!! So I have painted them a more flesh colour :)
I have finished the shoulder pieces for the armour and just need to weather one. Here the before and after pic :D I have also attached velcro to the inside of these and corresponding ones to the dress.
Today I also did the neck piece 
I'm just waiting on some thinner wire to attach the beads etc

I have also been doing work on the wig and its about half done. Now all I need to do is the last piece of jewellery and the wig then I can fit it together >8D Mwahahahaaa. The end is in sight!!

Day 29

I'm now about half way through the armour, getting ready to paint and decorate!
A petticoat also arrived in the post today, but I'm not sure I'm happy with it, I think its too big.

Day 23

One last post before I leave for my bfs. I shall be back next Monday or Tuesday, hopefully with the armour :)
Today I hemmed and finished the jacket and have started painting the border design on. I shall do that back when I return as I need to let the front dry for 24 hours. See you guys!

 Tiara is now one piece!
