Definitely not abandoning this! Just slow on progress lol

Filler primer, sand, repeat.

Gauntlets are looking good so far.

Yup, that looks like my life with the gauntlets. I may put a coat of primer on them tonight and see if I need more spot putty before this weekend

What?!? Another update in the same week?!?

Well itís not all good news in this one, but such is the build process. So I dyed my top and now itís too dark... so while I decide if I want to torture myself with color remover or not, Iíve turned to some friends whoíve built the costume for advice.

Failed dye attempt:


Looking at these for options instead. My friend has the top below; Iíd just have to add the second sleeve and sleeve detail. She said she leaves her belly plate on and attached the rest each time she kits up. That may be the route I go with. Things to think about.


Iíd buy two to Frankenstein the vest, to add the second sleeve and make matching gloves since the crl calls for the same material and color as the flightsuit/vest


I could, in theory leave the legs and cod pieces attached when I dekit for this option.

Anyway, just my thoughts with where Iím at in the build right now.

Sorry to hear that your dye job didn't work out.  I'm sure you'll figure out the best solution.   :)

I like the alternative you mention. It sounds like the best option.

Yeah the more I think about it, the more I like this option, as long as the color actually matches in real life lol

i think these two will work out. this is more of that "dark charcoal grey" color that's truer to the show. cause her suit isn't quite black but it's not grey. it's got a slightly weathered look to it, which i think these colors will fit. hopefully they come in as the pictured colors :)

I sure hope so too because I ordered them this afternoon! Time will soon tell!

If all works out color wise, I think all Iíll have to do is add the seam down the legs (should be easy enough) and make gloves out of the 2nd shirt I bought (never made gloves, will be an experience lol)

in theory it's tracing your hand with some seam allowance added in then sewing it together then turning it right side out.

but notice i said "in theory"  ;)

Still waiting on the second half of my ďflightsuitĒ to arrive; top came in and itís quite soft. Hope it matches!

Got my gauntlets primed and silvered. Might need to lightly sand it before I paint it the blue but for now, Iím happy with them. Obviously still have to add all the little do dads lol





Also my friend gifted me some amazing rubies westar 35s! Theyíre the perfect fit for my tiny hands lol they still need another coat and maybe a little more sanding but theyíre getting there!



So thatís my mini update for now!
(Edited to fix my dang errors. Tired Kryamla is tired lol)
