Here's the plan I have right now. Tell me what you folks think. The main thing I'm worried about is the color scheme. I do not want to step all over anybody's scheme ya know. The colors also may not have transferred well in the scan. The cape and loin-cloth are purple, but it is a very subdued purple. I actually have the cloth for them and they were about the same color blue that the armor will be. They are not now, because I sent to the dye bath when I was planning on black and red armor. No worries, I think I may still have a few curtain left at the shop. Yup, they used to be the changing room curtains that were left here back when the computer shop I work at was an exercise studio. Use what you have right?
The blue would be a shade or two darker than Tarheel Blue. I drew (rather badly) a side view of the boots I am using. Pretty much just engineer style motorcycle boots that come up to just over mid-calf. The front plate is a Wilson shin-guard that I'll paint and bolt down. The top plates on the foot are from Ohl'd Vart's templates.
The gun, how awesome does that thing look right, is actually a water gun I picked up from a drugstore the other day and is roughly the size of a sawed-off shotgun. It will need paint and some greeblies added.
My gauntlets are not actually designed yet, which is why they are pretty much empty in the drawing. They will retain the stripe after design though.
So, I want to get your honest opinions and I want to make sure I'm not walking all over somebody else's build.
