SNES and spraypaint

Since you can borrow a lot of cool workshops and space there I spent most of the day at my school. This time it was the "spray box" I borrowed, a room for spraying three dimensional objects.So now everything has 4-5 base coats of PlastiDip spray and one layer of silver, all ready for the final touches! I thought I'd show some progress I've made since the last entry.
 
Some changes on her sword that made a big difference!
The blade of the sword is never shown in the game but I really love when there's pictures or text engraved in blades so of course my Ashei will have that! So now her name is engraved in hylian text on the blade:) I discovered that as long as you ventilate a lot and use a fan to direct the fumes out the window, you can engrave in foam with a (I don't really know if it's called this in english) focal pen. You know that tool woth a wire at the end that gets really warm and then you can make marks in wood? That thing.
 
Packing
in my institutions little kitchen I sat down next to the scary wobbly microwave-tower
I'd bought one of my latest purchases, a usb controller that looks like the ones on SNES! Now I can maximize my emulatorgaming. The day consisted of  Star Ocean with a classmate as company and the occasional runs down to the spray box for another coating
Liquitex spraypaints have really nice coverage and has almost no smell since its acrylic based!
Sadly I should have bought another can, so now the corset is the ususal stinky spray:/
The PlastiDip spray seems to have worked in getting the foam more durable but it was really hard to tell since I bought the transparent one, should have bought a colored! So, all of you who are thinking of trying this out, buy colored PlastiDip and use about 4-5 coats for a good result.
It's the annual spring exhibition this week at Konstfack which I didn't consider, so in the midst of all the high class art critics and general well-dressed public I ran around in my work clothes and mask haha!
This will be the last time I show this much of the armor. I'll of course show a little bit of the painting but not all parts, I want to save it for NärCons cosplaycontest. Of course I'll show pictures after the convention!

Ser riktigt bra ut Sabina!;o Den där handkontrollen var grym, var köpte du den och för hur mycket?

Svar: Tack så hemskt mycket! Ja visst är den fantastisk? Jag köpte den via tradera för typ en hundring. Det verkar finnas liknande fast för lite mer fortfarande på tradera om du funderar på att skaffa en --> http://www.tradera.com/finding.mvc/itemlisting?search=handkontroll+usb+snes&sort=16
