This weekend is Nullus Anxietas VI
- an Australian Discworld convention. This is my second (third if you count the Unseen University Convivium held here a few years ago). I love these conventions. They remind me of the old fan cons. It's all about chatting, debating, having fun and - for me - the costumes!
This week's Photo Friday is a pictorial costume diary.
I made a paper pattern.
Cut out the foam and glued with hot glue (had to thin out the tip to get a point).
Started gluing on thin foam bits to simulate riveted panels.
Of course, no costume is real unless there's blood - or in this case - hot glue burns...
I used Araldyte to make lots of studs.
Lots and lots of them...
Then I painted it black.
Then used Rub'n'Buff to glam it up.
And here is the final hat: a steampunked witch's hat to wear on the steampunk panel (and there are other plans for it as well.)
Here's the video costume diary.
I'm also doing a writing workshop - Write your own Discworld story
. Come say hello if you are attending. I'll be posting more photos to twitter and Facebook over the weekend, so watch out for them.
