Although yesterday was rather unproductive (really squandered the whole day away if not for work -_-), I was able to finish the shield & get it to the point where I can spray paint. However, like the majority of this cosplay, I will have to spray paint it in segments because there are some pieces I need to s. paint separately. In this case, I really can’t attach the part of the handle & the tip for the lighting tubes until I spray paint the main body first, then glue them on later.
As far as the lighting for this piece, fortunately it wasn’t too hard to string my LED wire into the tubes for the shield. I purchased the LED wires from here, RTGS Products, & they are relatively inexpensive & very bright (at least for the blue LEDs).
Anyway, here are the pictures:
With both the lance & the shield finished & prepped for being spray painted (seen below):
With these 2 things done, I now can go on to working on the wing blades, which I can totally finish since I have the blue LED wires I need for the wing blades. That being said, I’m moving on to the wing blades now.
See you later & happy cosplaying!
