Progress again! Gee.. I'm feeling so... productive O..o

Working on the knuckle bits some more. If everything goes well, they should be done today. I know I said that yesterday, but it got colder yesterday! In any case.. everything's set on them now. Now I get to do lots of sanding... except..

One of the spikes broke off first thing when I was sanding. I sanded the other three quite a bit last night, and they didn't budge.. but one snapped off. So.. I'll need to mix some more bondo. I want to re-inforce all the cracks and connecting bits anyway.. which will be a great deal more sanding to get them to look good, but at least they'll be sturdy. I've been using a dremel bit to sand around the bases. It wouldn't be a problem with the hand sander, but the tape is starting to shake loose, and I can't seem to get the sand paper to sit still for some reason. (I guess that's what I get for ghetto-rigging the sander.. but I'm not paying $1.00 per velcro-pad w/sandpaper for this beast! I go through it so fast with the bondo!)In any case.. I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to paint these tonight! If I get them painted, They'll be finished in no time.. and then I can worry about how to attach them. (The magic 8-ball says super glue will be spiffy.. HAHAHAH)

Ohhh! And my sexy sexy PVC boots came in. T..T They're so beautiful.. and they fit on my calves! It's a wonder! Even when I was thinner, I had problems getting boots&things over my calves (they're awfully muscular. I remember leg-pressing 200lbs w/o too much trouble back in highschool) That's why it's going to break my heart to tear them apart for the sake of cosplay :(
Though.. the shoe is attached very firmly to the sole, and I'm still not entirely certain I want to try to rip it off so I can tuck the suede underneath. After all.. if I fold over the edges and finish it with a nice-looking stitch, as long as I attach it evenly to the shoe, no one will know the difference, right? right? T..T
Oh.. if only I could find some way to get around destroying them! These shoes were pretty much a once-in-a-time catch on ebay.. and I got them for a good price.. so if it wern't for the fact that I've fallen head-over-heels in love with them, I'd be able to cut them up guilt-free. But.. in defence of the shoes-to be.... once they look like this.. they'll also be perfect for this. -..-** Though I swear to GOD they are purple in the game....AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH
THEY'RE GOING TO BE PURPLE FOR MY COSTUME, DAMMNIT! o..o It's ok if they're purple, right?

I really need another costume these shoes will work for.. XD It's hard enough having to cut them up and turn them purple suede.. lol
