What's that? You think cosplaying doesn't use math to the extent that architecture does?
Pictured below: My afternoon.
|How many pleather straps do I have to make? How long are they?|
Make sure they're all the same width, and don't forget the seam allowance.
Oh, and how did you measure them? Because that makes a HUGE difference.
|I'm not great at 3-D geometry... Birk had to get involved to show me how to|
make all the straps attach to each other. Drawings were badly needed.
|This would have been the first of at least a few attempts at the red bracer if|
Birk hadn't reminded me of some basic geometrical concepts.
|You can see the failed attempt at geometry on the bottom of the page.|
|It turned out right... so far. There's still a lot of math,|
sewing, grommeting, lacing, etc. to go...
and that's just for one forearm of this costume.
Just wait until we put the whole top together.
