... Well not quite.
I'm going to be re-making a few things as I've learned a great deal after wearing it for a day and a night and it took a bit of a beating. I had to make some rush adjustments after work friday, a few fixes to the loincloth, a remaking of a beltstring, a few other things. I now know a great deal more about what is durable and what is weak, as far as a few things are concerned. A general rule of thumb: make it twice as durable as you'll think it needs to be. Case in point, the medallion belt, which was made using 3 strands of incredibly durable waxed string used to stitch leather. As I couldnt break a single strand with my bare hands I figured three would be about right. I didn't think about the connections to the actual medallion, however. SO while string didn't break, the straws that I used as guides on the back and the apoxie that held them down did.
Additionally, the spraypaint coating on the medallions themselves began to flake off. I'm going to experiment with using 5 minute epoxy as a basecoat before spraypainting over the wet epoxy to make a more durable finish. If that doesn't work, I'm going to cough up the extra dough to have them plastichromed.
There was such a positive response that I've realized I'm going to be wearing this around for at least another six months to a year. One girl in particular stared openly with her mouth open for like 20 minutes before timidly asking for a photo :D Almost every other person or group of people flip out, and a good number of people asked for a photo. I now understand why people do cosplay and such ... there's such a huge positive reaction to it, its a horribly fun time; I had a great night!
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get to the Ren Fair in PA, thanks to that bizzare snowstorm saturday.
I'm also going to be getting some better pictures of the whole affair in the future, which I will of course post here! Especially after I work up my pecs a bit more, as well as getting a spray tan :P
