So I chose another delightfully warm (and humid) weekend to wrap myself in clingfilm and tape in the name of cosplay progress. This is officially the start of the … I’ll call it chest plate, though it only covers the upper half of my chest, but I don’t know what else to call it.
I had to enlist help for this one, because it goes around my back – plus I had to keep my arms still so I could get the coverage I needed. My husband kindly assisted (which of course had nothing to do with the fact I had to stand there for ages in just my bra) and even added suggestions, like marking where bra straps were and so forth. He’s a bit of a perfectionist, which was helpful – he made sure that his markings were even on all sides – I’m far more slapdash than he is!
I took pictures of the finished template on my dressmaker’s dummy, rather than having pictures of me half-dressed! It needs chopping up a bit before it gets transferred to paper, but you get the idea.
And of course, my husband decided to leave me a memento of the experience, in sharpie … Sigh.
