More work in progress.

Weathering on my soft parts, (sounds so dirty  :P).
Foam backing on chest diamond so it doesn't recess between my pecs anymore.

Sorry for the link only, apparently this site doesn't like mp4. (?)

So I was told to weather my cape more, and since I've already burned, ripped, painted, and sanded it, I drove over it a few times.

I was also told to weather the stitching on my vest due to it being too bright. Problem is I used dental floss for strength, (and I like the look of black leather and white stitching), and due to the waxy nature of dental floss, I couldn't use the recommended "tea bag" method of weathering, or many other options. So I just drew over it with a jiffy marker.

Personally, I like the "patchwork" nature of your stitching as I'm firm believe that your armor shouldn't just look weathered, but repaired and maintained. Are you still using the same blaster or have you upgraded since?

Thanks for the compliment about the patch work, that means a lot.  :)

I'm using a different blaster for the app process, (Westar 35), however I do have a sniper rifle which I now realize has been posted every where but here yet so I shall remedy that now. 🤪

I was asked to reduce the bagginess of sleeves, trim plates, and switch footwear as mine appeared to be sneakers.

Here's the sewing job I did, (I didn't trim the excess fabric due to lifting weights and looking to the future, I hopefully will need it)


And trimming of the plates
Pre cut

Post cut (cool looking sh1t, eh?)
