Necromancer progress
Post By Static. 30/10/08, 09:45 am

Yeah, not a whole lot done so far - just a whole steaming pile of SEAMS! This is a mock-up, I'll bone this in plastic and make sure everything's all hucky-duck before I do the properly-coloured satin and steel-boning version. On a side note, SPOTLIGHT ARE OUT OF BONING I AM SO OFFENDED.






To refresh everyone's memory, this is the original reference image:



Modified obviously. I'm currently fighting a fighty mcbattle with the collar trying to get it to sit properly, but as I have no boning it's kind of a moot point anyway...there will most likely be no sleeves, because the final corset will be really heavy and I don't want to die of heatstroke at the ball.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Death threats? Comments on my seams? Anything?

go out and buy a heap of the cheapest but bras that you can find then hack the boning out of that with a box knife probably only usefull for the fine details the rest I would use 2.5 mm wire and bend it to fit

Which staff or wand/offhand are you weilding sand have you thought about plushie bone minions cause they would be hax! also dont forget the scar patterns!!

Lol! You're more anal about the details than me XD I have the steel boning already, the problem with DIY boning is the grade of steel - it needs to flex, but not bend. If you end up with bent boning, you're screwed - it NEVER straightens properly.

I hadn't thought about a staff - although seeing as how I'l probably be in crazy heels, it might be a good idea...ta Very Happy

yea i am a huge necro player on GW scince teh very beggining with the no cap minion masters!!!

The staff would be easy enough to do with a broom handle and a either paper mache or wooden head. but it would definitely help balance and add the extra little bit every outfit needs

Uh, I'd like to place a Death Threat, please.
Is there a form I fill out?

Kidding aside, I have no idea what that's from or anything, but it looks good so far ;3.

I love Guild Wars, I want to dress up as my Fire elite Kurzick Ele. D:
Shame I don't play GW anymore, now that I have a Mac. May get a PC for gaming later on in life. GW2 should be amazing. :3
