Raider - Thanks! Yeah you're right about that old waist cord. I'm going with more of an animal pelt design now.
So yeah, time is running out rather quickly and between work and the rest of my life I've unfortunately been pulled away from this project way too much
But, I will try and keep going this week and see where things end up, though, it doesn't look like I'll be making it to the finish line on time at this point.
I've still got some big pieces in mind that I need to build, not to mention the demon head and the dead fairy thing, and then I'd like to add a bunch of greeble stuff (bones, more straps, beads, etc.)
