Here it is! My costume for 1st polish eliminations for EC 2011. Theres no words how happy i am to get the opportunity for London championships again! I'll do my best!

Costume itself took 2,5 month to make. I put all my heart and skills into this work. I learnt again alot about new materials and lvled up in constructioning ;3
Wings contains of about 700 geese feathers and pvc pipes stellar.For the armor i used craft foam, acrylic spheres and cut in the right shape mannequin. But the real fun were hand and spear! I basically used expanding foam for the base and carved the "flames" in seperate little foam piece. Then i put paper mache on it, sanded and glued to base where i had place to put my real hands in. Every single "flame" was enhardened with wood glue and painted. It was so much work! Especially for spear where i used plexiglass with 56 LED lights. I also had LED lights eyes for the presentation. So much electronic fun! I am also very happy of my make up and fake fangs. Rawring on random people and seeing their terrified faces was just too awesome. ;3 Skirt and cloak were burned on the ends to make them look old and ripped.
Cosplay of this sizes is seriously tiring but the satissfaction is undescribleable!

G3n3sis Hiiiiii Shappi !! I'm Genesis (from Spain) First, your cosplay is amazing, it is normal that you will qualify to go to London ^ ^, I hope to meet you there in London, since I too have chosen ^ ^ From here I send you a big hug

Earl Astaroth i can't wait to meet you in october either *_* wah, i'm so excited *_*

Mi-Young Dzisiaj mi się przypomniał mój zachwyt nad tobą :P Pewnie już pełno osób ci to mówiło, ale czuje potrzebę powiedzieć od siebie: W pełni zasłużyłaś na wygraną eliminacji jako nagrodę choćby za to jak się (wciąż!) rozwijasz. Każdy twój kolejny cosplay jest o level lepszy od poprzedniego! Aż nie mogę się doczekać co będzie na EC :DDDD hugs and kisses - your biggest fan 8D

Kacela Incredible costume! Congratulations on qualifying again, you deserve it =]
