I've almost finished updating one of Yoko's boots. I need to take it in a bit at the top of the foot and then patch up the sole. I completely re-did the zipper, it was too thin and made the boot too tight. I'm freaking out a little, AoD is just over a week away and I still have to fix the other boot and finish the jacket and rifle.
I did some test painting on cardboard and foam scraps, and I found that I already have a sealant that I can use on my rifle. It will make it shiny and waterproof (to a point). It wouldn't be able to survive a downpour or being dunked in a pool, but it's better than it just being acrylic paint over cardboard.
The rifle needs some parts added to it. It should be pretty simple, I just haven't done it because I feel like i need to focus on the boots, which are far more important because if I don't finish them, I won't be able to cosplay Yoko to AoD at all. If I don't finish the rifle or jacket, yes I'll be disappointed, but at least I'll have something to wear. I also need to fix up the yellow and black stripes on the butt of the rifle, they're just really messy right now. The jacket only needs some gold metal-looking bits added onto it and it'll be finished.
The belt fell apart a little bit, I used the wrong glue, but that's a quick fix. I also need to iron the shorts and put belt loops on them.
