Are you using actual cinnamon for weathering purposes?

Yes. I use it to simulate red rust/clay dirt. The muck on his shins is a mix of soil from my driveway and cinnamon. I dab a bit of clear glue and then sprinkle on the cinnamon.

You can see it here on my v2 kit

Ingenious idea.

I was just going to say that! Very ingenious. You surely have to smell a little like cinnamon even after the glue dries. The cinnamando...lol.

Finished the Backplate, so now all of the armor pieces are complete



His Jumpsuit came in, we cut the sleeves off

He plans on ordering his flak vest, and then it will be time to put it all together

How are you planning to do the coverage that isn't gauntlet from the end of the new short sleeves to the wrist?  Cannot have exposed skin on arms.  You ARE allowed to have a contrasting sleeve color.


Edit--- My apologies.  Did not understand this was an option.  Sorry for any stress or confusion I caused!

Short Sleeves are allowed, several OM with short sleeves, CRLs don't mention short sleeved flight suits being prohibited. The only place skin showing is mentioned is in the neck area between Helmet and Flight suit/vest, which requires a neck seal

Sleeveless is permitted, we judge on a case by case basis.

We did a photoshoot yesterday. Still didn't have my flak vest, so just for fun, we took Yogi's flak vest and swapped my plates out (except for the reader plate), since he uses magnets. It's clear that it needs work, and my vest will be black. But its a good rough idea of where we are going. I think I am going to try to apply for Beast Hunter Brigade eventually too. Also we plan on tightening the sleeves closer to my arms.

We ordered a a vest from MOW and I got it weathered. Jacob made the cape with some leftover material I had laying around. Did a full test fit. We will have the flight suit legs taken in a bit towards the bottom, replace the visor and do some final tweaks before the premiere.

That armor is so... Tasty! ;D

Great job Vod! Honestly!

Each time I see armor like this, I postpone OMing mine, because "It needs some more touch..."
Inspiring!
