On Fire

My creative juices have really been flowing lately, and it feels great!

I’ve finally made my first complete foam armor cosplay piece (minus the paint job and leather harness), and I’m pretty proud of myself.

If you follow me on other social media, you’ve likely already seen at least one picture of this, if not more…but I can’t help myself! Here it is, my phoenix foam armor 🙂


Sure, there are some rough edges that need sanding, and I still have to put grommets in it to attach it to a harness for wearing, but it looks damn good if you ask me. I can hardly wait to get some gold spray paint for it.

I still need to get the fabric for this cosplay, but I have the fabric for my husband’s steampunk Cyclops already. Still a few things to get for that, too, but for the most part I can get started as soon as I finish remaking the corset for the Magik cosplay (which, sadly, still looks as crappy as the first, but at least with this one the bones shouldn’t come out at all).

So geeked out about these steampunk cosplays, and I haven’t even really started! It’s going to be so much fun to have finished products to be able to show y’all. Eventually lol
