MTAC was last weekend, and so I debuted version 1 of my Black Gold Saw costume:
I’m glad I wore it at this con first—it helped me figure out what worked and what I need to fix for Dragon*Con. My knee/thigh armor fell apart because the glaze I used never cured, but at least I knew that it would be a temporary set for MTAC only. My thigh-highs started to fall, too—I taped them up, but it was hot outside, so I think the adhesive stopped working because I was sweating a little. I still have to make claws for the hands, too… so yeah, I’m still not done with it but know where I need to make changes and additions.
Overall, though, I loved wearing the costume. I can’t wait to wear it again. The group got a great response. I’m so glad that Brandi and Katrina invited me to do this costume group with them. I’m really looking forward to D*C now, when I’ll have a fully-functional, not falling apart version of this costume. 😀
