Light Fury Transformation

Post #2: Patterning and Foam

Hi Everyone!
This week I have been busy patterning the entire costume! I try and do at least an hour of patterning a day, so that I can have everything ready to cut when the materials come in the mail. Also, I will have a calendar at the end of this week to try and keep everything organized as well as keep myself on task!

I use the “Cling-Wrap and Tape” method for most of my armor patterning. I find this to be the easiest and quickest way to create the patterns for a majority of the armored costumes I create. I’ve patterned every armor part of this costume except for the breastplate. Since I am doing a drag transformation for this costume, I do not have a true bust to work with. Therefore, I need to re-design the chest area of Zach Fischer’s design with more coverage in order to sell the illusion properly. But, I will address this situation in a later week after I dive into mapping out all the padding and understructure to this costume.

Additionally, I have started cutting most of the armor pattern pieces out of craft foam. I’ve also been putting together a little graphic for my entire WWWIP journey! I really love being a part of these events, and want to make it look more fun and professional. So, behind the scenes, I am working on putting together a little Light Fury graphic to add to these blog posts and my social media. That will hopefully be done soon! :)

Here is the week-by-week calendar I constructed to hopefully keep myself organized! We are already on week 2! Things are happening so quickly! So, here is my plan on how to attack Light Fury:
