Saw the Daily Prompt for today. . . it’s been long enough. Time to update this thing.
Here she is, my beautiful bucket from Zero Cool Prop Shop. Rubbed it down with a microfiber cloth and was ready to paint! A layer of black primer came first, then I discovered this, and got a new can of silver.
Here’s what I got after it dried and I got some toothpaste on for weathering! I’m just so loving this thing. . .
So I’m hoping to get around to the shoulder plates soon. They’ll be PVC pipe, but first they gotta get cut out. This, my friends, is no easy task, I fear. I’m waiting on a time that assistance can be provided for me as I attempt to wield a Dremel tool for the first time. Then, it’ll be loads of sanding, trimming, heartbreaking, then PAINTING! and then wearing!
I’ve lost focus on the flightsuit after the sleeve baffled me. I cut the shoulder wrong so my brain refuses to line it up correctly. . . will have to dig up the pattern so I can see what I’m supposed to do with it.
The armor is done. All done. All elastic and Velcro is on, ready to be stuck onto the flightsuit. I actually tried on the shnees and ankles on my boots, they really feel nice and I can’t wait to see the entire thing together!
This should be everything now. I have material for gloves, paint for weathering, and OH YEAH!
Forgot! Here’s muh paintsprayer, getting a coat of gray paint! It’s all painted and mostly weathered up now!
I still need to get a wig, blasters, and belt/holsters, things I can do myself
but I’m too lazy but I lack the experience for the belt. I do have a question I’d be very grateful to get an answer for. . . what color is Sabine’s hair now? It looks like a navy blue in some lights, but in others a chocolate brown. Is this my eyes, or did she leave her hair a REAL color? :T
In the meantime, I’ve gotten myself into another cosplay-type thing. . . I’ve discovered a hoodie pattern. With ears. Now I’m trying to decided whether I want a Lothcat, a Lothwolf, or a Fathier. Not sure yet. Maybe even an Icefoxie.
