Oh no, don't get me wrong, the design was very accurate of course, but I mean making cosplay armor actually look convincing is not easy realistically.

In fact the only convincing "armor" style cosplays I have seen are a Guyver costume that had to have taken a ridiculous amount of time and money and a Samus cosplay. Of course, that's assuming they are counted under a "armor" type of style.

I think fiber glass can be used to pull off a armor look very well, which I believe is what was used in the two I mentioned...............but it's not cheap nor easy if I recall correctly.

Oh ya, it's a nice outcome, but or the price I couldn't do it. It's also a thing that takes practice, so I wouldn't wanna be practicing with such pricy material. With my luck I'd ruin the first batch I bought completely and waste all my money lol

Mayuka, you're the reason why I made my first Prestigious LeBlanc costume ages ago haha. At the time nobody had really cosplayed LB and you did a great job.

I'm not sure if you'll ever get this message but I decided to create a "cosplay progress/process" site with other female gamers. A lot of people respect you and I would be very honored if you would consider doing this with me.

I didn't know how else to contact you so I'm posting here. My e-mail is league.reg@gmail.com if you were interested. There is no deadline for progress entries... I'm guessing that some people might update once a month and others once a week. Let me know what you think!

Le gasp! I happened to be on and see my dusty old thread on the front page xD
I would surly contribute. I am, however, horribly lazy and forgetful, so my updates would be few and far between xD might be nice to have people to ask for help/opinions...then I wouldn't waste so much $$ on effing up materials hahaha. I will be making more costumes now that I got a promotion at work though, I will start taking progress pictures incase it will help anyone Nekonekomayu@hotmail.com is my email, and you can get me through my wordpress in the first post.
Good luck with your site!
