Tira soul calibur - Ring blade by Laurentea Tira soul calibur - Ring blade by Laurentea
Eiserne Drossel for my Tira soul calibur 4 cosplay. I can't decide yet if I'm happy with the final product but I figure a few days away from it help clear my mind.

I'm so glad it's done no more foamboard dust and paint fumes in my living room.

Made over the course of four days.
Materials used: Hulahoop and foamboard

I've worked with insulation foam before, but it was kinda clumsy. But then again, I don't think my boyfriend was using the right tools and such. Thanks!

Last time I went to a con, we had 2 suitcases in the back bench of our car. On our knees. (And we got a flat tire on our way back.)

Well, see you at AN! :dance:
