Finally, an update for my Gun Sniper Naomi Cosplay!
Now, I know it doesn't look like much now, but I am hoping it will look amazing when completed ( or at least half way decent).
This is the base of the tail, made from very thick cardboard, with places of stress strengthened by plywood.
It is made out of three sections that are supposed to be slightly tapered. Between each section are joints made from cardboard between two pieces of some sort of wood. Yes, the tail does move. It will be attached by a belt, though some minor adjustments to the belt might be made as I work on the costume.
I made it out of thick cardboard because I was going for lightweight and on a budget. So far, it has held up and is actually stronger than you might think.
At this point, the tail still needs foam armor, paint and details, which I will hopefully get around to next weekend or so. Though, school has been taking chunks out of my time, which is why this update is way overdue.
If you have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated!
Big thanks to my dad who did all the cutting and helped me with the adjusting ( Needed quite a bit) of the patterns I made myself. He is always a great help with my cosplays, and if it weren't for him I might not even be making Cosplays.
