Alright, this is a little old/overdue- but here’re a few better pictures of my Liv Tyler prop from this year’s Anime Boston.

She ended up a little more weathered than I anticipated after being tossed around all weekend (I should’ve used a different color of foam!), but taking into consideration the sheer number of people who wanted to HOLD her, she held up with no major problems. For a first prop, I’m pretty proud.

She was crocheted from a modified version of the amineko pattern; I didn’t write it down, but I more or less made two smaller arms for her ears, enlarged her head by another set of rounds, and shortened her limbs and torso. The fabric was weathered using just about everything I could find in my apartment- soy sauce, tea, paint, ink, etc.- and then glued on to fit; the armor is sealed and painted craft foam with Elmer’s glue weld lines. Her eyes are just painted plush post eyes secured through the head during stuffing. 

This was my first big-deal-everything-from-scratch cosplay, so here’s hoping my next one comes out even better… * ^*
