Got all the fractured parts repaired today and gave Fawkes a little darker wash to match closer to the 3rd Gen shiny Blaziken's design. Also gave the face itself a matte finish and gave the beak a good sound layer of enamel, buffing it to a shine. It's rather subtle in person, but the texture is noticeable. Things not seen is making the inside of the mouth black (as well as the rest of the interior) and strengthened any areas I could as, from the stories I have heard, a lot of folks at some cons can be rather rough if no fursuit etiquette is known.
Got some very strong magnets to replace the current ones coming and some red felt to complete the tail.
