And we have a new headpiece! It's hanging upside down, soaking the inside with latex for support. I may have to apply some more inside the centre crease as the weight of the lekku pull the piece sideways.
I have wrestled the leather for the greaves. It is heavy and difficult work as the water cools so fast and I may have scorched a small section as well. but I think I may be prepared to get another scrap of russet.
