Have a picture of all the expanding foam stuff that will go into the finished Death costume:



This doesn't include the scythe blade. We have: 10 x bones for wings, scythe handle, 10 x finger bones, 3 x skulls, face for belt, 2 x skull faces for pauldron, ribcage thingy, and 7 x bones for arms. They don't look like much yet, but that's the culmination of about 25 hours' work.

All of these now have to be masked with masking tape, and then paper mache'd before I can paint them. Then I can get onto the more interesting stuff like ombre dyeing cheesecloth for the hooded shroud, fiddling with EVA foam for the belt, bracers and pauldron, and messing with LEDs for the glowing undies. Fun times..

Has to be ready for October's Auckland Armageddon. I'm entering the comp as part of a Darksiders group. I've never grouped before and have no idea what I'm doing.

Because that's basically how I live my life.
