lol! Come back to a bit of character scrutiny
Funnily enough I just spotted something today which made me really start to push forward with this costume
I had seen pictures of the Mini Bust, obviously but not the blurb that goes with it. Interesting to say the least. It is possibly a spoiler as I haven't seen anything on the official site or in the novel.... But yeah she is a vital character in the game
Unless GG have jumped the gun...http://www.gentlegiantltd.com/product_p/80144.htm
Spoilers in there if they are true...
We won't go into how some SW related media products play merry heck with EU... I'm a Night Sister and Sith tatoo fan girl as well s well and have a few thoughts on that in regards to a different series..
So. My armour progress this week:
Printed base patterns for the chest armour. Made to fit me, though a little wiggle room for scaling up and down. Still not sure if I need to add more to this base. For me I'm going to rey and get dimention by layering where needed. This is not a 3D model that I pepped but is patterned on the dummy.
So, score one for inorganic collection! PVC pipe galore and all free! Most from one house too. Must have had a total lumbing refit.
So the greaves in the artwork are pretty flat, I decided to cut and shape from the pvc pipe. Sigh. Not as easy as it might have been due to a few issues. So I am going to have to make a solid base and then use these pieces over that. Luckily they soften nicely with a heat gun. It's trying to shape them that is not working out.I need to tape as I go which doesn't relaly happen to work well on real legs...
So here I ma putting plasticine all over the legs of my mannequin. She is alien. Her legs are really skinny front on but in profile really wide. What you don't see here is my final shape which has the clay scraped right back from the front and back and a little more from the sides taken out. I think I took off a good 800gm shaving with a ruler.
And tonight I got cloth over those legs and in the back of the chest armour.
I will be trying to make a decent go at the electronics. I know I can solder and plot up circuit diagrams but it is going to require me buying some more kit- I need something to hold everything as I solder. My joints are pretty clumsy atm because of not being able to keep things steady and supported.
The dummies I am using are both ex shop stock. The half mannequin is a really really good match to me, more idealised but still a really good match. It means I can build armour directly in it as well as drape patterns on it. I got my Imperial Officer uniform looking really sharp and spiffy because of it.
I'm no stranger to casting and mold making or sculpting
This is just going slower due to a lot of really bad health issues. Epoxy resin allergy aside. Bad contact allergy. But it's not the worst.http://neimhaille.tumblr.com/http://glittersweet.deviantart.com/http://costumes.glittersweet.com/
Or hat making for that matter..
