Zhang He progress - unpainted peacock talon  
Unpainted peacock talon

Talon #2 is mostly put together. It just needs the pointy trim and gesso. I'll worry about that after I'm done painting my armor. (I'd say it's 80% done.) I need to get the knee guards glued and painted, too, but I seem to be out of thin craft foam. Sigh. At least the thick parts are patterned and bent.
Current Mood: okayokay

WOW, that looks good! I'm really excited about seeing the finished project!

Thanks! I plan to use the same gold paint that I've been using on the rest of my armor, but I want to shade around the raised parts with blue to get a variegated blue/green effect (I'll have to test this first and see if it will actually look like I want it to)...and I also plan to decoupage peacock eyes onto the piece. I just hope they get here in time. I ordered them from Canada about two weeks ago along with the rest of my feathers.

Oh my gosh, if both of those ideas work, it's going to look soooo amazing. How DOES one decoupage, though?

Thank you! I'm actually bringing this costume to Otakon...but I'll definitely be wearing it again in the future, and I would like to get to D*C at some point. I've heard great things about Atlanta, and the con seems to be a great place for jaw-dropping costumes from all genres, and I mainly go to cons for the cosplay because looking at pictures just isn't the same. So perhaps I will be the most beeYOOtiful Wei officer at some D*C or another. ^_^
