My son (7) wanted to cosplay Keith in his Paladin form for Momocon this year. He wound up winning in the costume contest! Thanks to all the awesome people who made him feel so loved and appreciated. ❤️
I’ve been remaking parts of my paladin suit since the original pieces were not up to par with my own standards 😓💦 My technique/process was flawed and I’m slightly embarrassed I didn’t figure it out the first time around… Basically you can see the old ones in the bg that have fabric creases in them because the vinyl is not secured to the foam. This happened only when wearing it all together due to the stress of things so it wasn’t an obvious problem at the beginning. I now figured out a way to make the tube armor pieces the way I want AND secure it to the foam throughout…. Just wish I didn’t have to make them twice haaaa… Otherwise there were only minor adjustments to these. (I wish I knew of a better way to make the round bits on the shin guards but alas) I know they will hold up much better but I’m still nervous about the wear and tear on this costume, ahhhh..
With some other adjustments and fixups, I will be wearing paladin Keith Friday (and maybe Saturday?) evening at Katsucon next weekend…!
