One thing about the way our warband fights is that, we’re often not near eachother in a line fight. Instead, as a warband of pikes and halberds, we’ll disperse and attack where we’re needed, as well as absolutely wrecking and breaking our opposing wall. I guess here I was defending the back of our line ensuring we didn’t get flanked.
I’ll also tell you that a huge part of me wanted to photoshop my derp face in this photo, but the last thing I want to be is fake. So this is me, derp face and all, defending the backs of some of my best mates in the whole world.

So after many failed attempts and a lot of swearing I finally found a way to make a template that works! Feel free to use it you should be able to adjust it fairly easily. The dots are all 1 inch apart.
• I made the paper myself by laying it over my handy cutting board which has a grid on it each line is exactly an inch apart. My first couple of tries I was drawing the full line onto my paper but that was very confusing and hard to sort out so I just marked the 1 inch intervals wih dots which worked a lot better. You can also do this using a ruler it just might not be as precise but that’s ok.
•I highly recommend you make a paper mock up tape it together and try that on to make sure it’s going to fit you before you cut into your materials.
• I used EVA foam to make my armour. I was able to get a huge roll of the stuff at canadian tire in their carpet and rug section. When cutting EVA foam if you mess up a line don’t try recutting it just sand it down with a bit of sandpaper otherwise it ends up looking choppy and really rough around the edges. I used contact cement to glue everything together.
• I had to put elastic on the back edge of the side panels to attach it to the back panel so I could fit it over my shoulders without ripping it. This seems to work pretty well so far.
If you have any questions let me know I’ll be happy to help you out if I can! Good luck
Enjoyed taking some pics with my Zelda gear tonight! I’m starting to really feel a Link cosplay at some point ;;;;;))))))
Master Sword and Hylian Shield were both made from scratch by me! I have video tutorials on both of them that you can watch on my youtube channel :0 (master sword tutorial is coming in the next couple of days)
Imagine being into cosplay, despite being an avenger and 20 years old, and you do crossovers of things like beauty and the beast in a Harry Potter universe, Elsa if she was in the hunger games, pretty much Disney with a twist- Once when you were making armor for your Elsa in the hunger games costume, Loki comes in and sees you trying it on, admiring how tough you look in the armor in the mirror, he is aroused, and despite his better judgement he has to have you now- little did he know you had a crush on him for a while
Day two costume for @thronescon !
So yesterday after work I decided I wanted a better gambeson…the other one I was going to wear was too bulky. Lucky I had the fabric and the dye to start again! I’m much happier with it and I feel it fits with the House Mormont style I was going for better. The bear hasn’t been attached yet, I think I’ll remove the brown around it before I do.
And the best news is that is didn’t take as much room in my suitcase as I thought it would! Whoo!

My finished armour!! Made from leather and hand dyed (just the base coat as that’s all I’ve time for so far!!)
It fits me better than my mannequin though🙈 so hopefully I’ll get a few photos tomorrow at the convention, and then I need a photo shoot with my ponies and dogs 😍🦄🐶
