Those look like some nice gloves. :) Any logos on the band, or did were you fortunate enough to find some gloves without a logo?


They are logo free! Scored them for $16 on Amazon. The pictures showed a logo, but they arrived without one. Yay!

They are a tad big, but I have tiny hands, so I figured any glove I'd fine would be, which is why I went with the fingerless.

Sweet! I've had issues finding logo-less ones, so nice job!  :)

Fingerless is a nice choice in the long run to be able to do things like use the phone while in kit. (It's important!)

Nope, no logos. Which is odd because I have the same gloves, full finger, in green and they have a sewn in logo on the wrist strap.

This weekend I was able to sew the last piece of my softs, my cape.

Here it is with the rough sketch of the design on it.



Here it is with the silver paint



I just need to do the black outline and shading.

All that is left is to sew on all the Velcro.

It looks beautiful, but did you double check with the app team if the bird/Celtic knots will be OK? It looks very earthy to me and I'd hate to see them kick you back because of it.

They were in her initial design and got an okay at that time. And we've seen at least one other official kit with celtic knots on it. If someone from the app team wants to chime in before she goes any further though that would be great.

I agree that the bird outline is too earthy. I've modified it a bit (in a way that means I won't have to make a whole new cape and start the painting from scratch). Here's a quick sketch:



Thoughts?

I like it. It looks a little more "Star Wars-ish" to me with the elongated feathers.

I'll poke Kris or Kyra to weigh in on it if they haven't in a day or so. :)

That design should be fine; There's a similar in universe bird so you should be good.

Just to clarify, which design? The one already painted or the addition of the loopy wingtips?

Ooooh. Shiny! I love the second design.

On a more serious note just for the record - yes Celtic designs are fine, we just prefer to see them based on a Star Wars animal rather than a more Earth animal though. Also kinda cool when people ask what the dragon on your helmet is and you can launch into the story about painting it on to commemorate the successful hunt of a krayt dragon out in the wastes of Tattooine...

Finished painting my cape today. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Here it is with the silver and the outline:



And here is the completed cape (minus some light weathering):



I also started my leather bits too. I was able to cut out the pouch piece and dye it. And I dyed my belt as well. I forgot to take pictures.
