Thanks !

Here's where I am right now with this kit :





Flak vest done, still need to sew velcro on the back for my backplates.

Red sash needs to be dirty ! It's way too bright at the moment.

Need something to hide my neck

I have to be careful about that white velcro showing on the sides. Change it for black, or just ... hide it.

Kama and loin cloth are on my to-do list, as well as a nice belt for my weapons !

Maybe add some boot plates, and check with app people if laces at the back of the boots are okay :)

Also, the most important maybe : I still have to find a nice bucket.

For now, this costume is SUPER comfortable, I can bend and sit and cross my legs and PICK UP ITEMS ON THE FLOOR.

The costume fit and spacing look great! And that mobility sounds awesome.

I don't think having laces in the back of the boots are okay though, you might have to just make spat to cover them up. Are you going to go for a night owl or a Sabine style bucket or something with a more traditional T-visor?

Thanks for your feedback !
Sabine style bucket, I hope I can find one that's my size and that fits my expectations.

For the boots, I can remove the laces and just sew this part, I don't need spats :)

Nice! Well there are two really nice Sabine sculpts - one from NME and the other from RuthlessFx on Etsy. The RuthlessFx is really nice but narrow on the face (I don't have a ton of room) whereas the NME is really wide but requires minimal work.

There's also TMA though I know that people need to put a lot of work into it to make that helmet look good. But it's more affordable and it won't take nearly as long to be sent to you. I hope you can find a Sabine style bucket that works for you and your budget!

Thanks !
I've seen the NME one and it's wonderful !
RuthlessFX looks really good too. I have a small head so it could do the trick.

Just have to gather some money, but it'll be worth it. I'm kind of clumsy and for such an important part of the costume, I don't want to make any mistake and ruin it :V

I just reread through your WIP, but maybe I missed it. Are these sintra or metal? I'm seriously considering this style but I'm a bit lost on where to start lol (eventually)

5mm sintra here ! I don't have the skills (and the hardware) to work with metal yet.

I believe this style with metal would be absolute awesomeness tho.

Personnaly I didn't have to do any darts for the chest plates, just lots of heat and shaping. Since the main chest plate is quite large, it's not super hard to get the right shape, but it depends on the space you need for your own chest I guess !

Also, little update : This is what the boots look like right now. Went full Sabine on them ! Still have to remove the laces on the back.

How come this helmet is not approvable ?!

Well ! Test fit because I added a first back plate with a cape. Because why not ? Plus it looks nice.

Still have to get some loin cloth and belt items ! As for the helmet, i'll get it 3D printed by a clan member  :D

Thanks !
No progress for now, but everyday gets me closer to the coolest helmet ever !

Can't wait to get it, paint it and install a shiny red visor. And get it approved !

Also, I think i'd love to have some Sabine style holsters for my blasters. Maybe not right now but it's definitely in my upgrades list.

Edit : Oh, look, a cod plate !



Welp

Looking forward to that helmet! How did you attach the cod?

With the Force of course !

And velcro.

Since most brigades require a solid cod, I figured it would be time saving to have one from the beginning !
