Loth-cat WIP
« on: Dec 29, 2019, 10:12 AM »
Hi all, this is my first build and I'm excited to get to work!
My armor concept is based off of a loth-cat. I'm going for light armor with fur accents.


The two cat heads on the side is what I might draw on a shoulder bell.

I went to a local armor party and made the armor pattern and cut it out of sintra. I still have to sand and smooth out the edges before I do anything else with it.


I am now currently working on my flak vest, I can't decide if I want a zipped up back or side snaps. But I need to finish that before I shape the armor.
I think it is doable, but hopefully I can get this done before Celebration 2020!

This is so cool!! I'm doing a cat inspired build as well, I was having trouble coming up with colors/concepts so I decided to base my armor colors off of my cat ( who is grey, white and tan). I'm interested in seeing how this turns out, looks good so far!

Thank you everyone for your kind encouragement!

I am shifting to soft parts first.
I'm currently working on my flak vest. I've made one with buckle sides, but I don't think the collar is big enough to attach the armor. So I'm almost done with a second one with a zip-back. I'm making it way harder on myself by lining it but I like the finished look.

I will update with pictures of both when I can.

Update!
I finally shaped my armor today. I was going to wait for an armor party but... thats not happening so I did it myself!
I still have to fine tune, bondo the darts, and probably cut down the sides of the collar piece.



A few weeks ago I made my first trophy and guiding star for this build. A tooka doll! I named him Boonta. I will use the same teal duck cloth for my girth belt and other fabric accessories for my kit.



I'm also done with almost all my soft parts. I just need to dye the cape and loincloth.

Also my helmet I commissioned is printed and is almost ready to be shipped to me. I can't wait to receive it and start working on it.
