Nadia Thanewulfe's WIP
« on: Apr 14, 2016, 09:17 AM »
Darius here.  My wonderful wife Nadia has decided to embark on her armoring adventure with me, but is decidedly non-wordy so has asked me to at least get her WIP started for her.  So without further ado, this is Nadia's journey.

First, after having watched me work on my design for nearly a year (gasp!), she decided to sit down and sketch out what she was seeing in her mind's eye.  In doing so, she hammered out this amazing sketch-up


From there, since femmando templates have to be a bit more custom in order to accommodate her assets, she then sat down and pretty much just cobbled together scraps of paper until they resembled her sketch, and had them mostly sized for her body.  Which she then test mounted in her amazing dress form her adoring husband bought her.




Again, in a completely unorthodox fashion, in what I can only describe as magic, she cuts her Sintra and we begin getting the finer adjustments down. 





From here, after a great visit from a Clan mate (ROMEO THAT'S YOU) her Sintra has been formed, and now the breastplate is going through the long and tedious process of Bondo and Sand, Bondo and Sand.....Bondo and Sand.  We would love any feedback you guys might have....and she would appreciate all the encouragement you might toss her way.  Encouragement is the heart of motivation after all.

IMHO That is one of the best looking female chest plates I have seen in a while.
