The balaclava looks great!

Good luck with the rug conversion! I had thought about doing something similar (when I get around to this build lol) by purchasing a rug from ikea! :D super curious to see how it all turns out :)

Thank you guys! Didn’t make my first deadline, no big deal. Somehow hoping her kit goes on display somewhere before I guess on too much, haha.

Did a mock up of a glove to figure out if I can get away with faux stretch suede. Real leather gloves are great but not the most dextrous.




Need to go back through and figure out the seam lines on her gloves, for now I think this fabric weight may work (especially for convention settings).

Quick update, 2.5 weeks of travel slowed me down, but I am hoping to power through the rest of the project quickly. If all goes to plan she should be ready for Megacon, a local Orlando, FL event in a couple of weeks.



Added some airbrush weathering and a light coat of yellow gold. Plan to buff out some of the gold and weathering as you see here (visor is just taped in).

Hoping to see you at Megacon. 6 more weekends to get it all going, I'm counting down the days trying to get mine done too

Holy cow, so a lot has happened in the world since starting this project/build thread. My deadline, Megacon (Orlando, FL) has been delayed (if not outright canceled) . Not a big deal, more time to work, right? Then, Disney+ announced the Disney Gallery show...  I'm hoping that the Gallery episodes will reveal some natural/brighter light views of the Armorer. Until I can confirm or deny detail reveals, I'll be holding off on final paint and soft part weathering.

Some passive updates:


Acquired back, chest, belt greeblies and boot armor from T&A as well thanks to a trade.


I was also fed up with my attempt at tinting/dying shorter pile sheep skin, so I acquired a new one from Etsy. The store is "Exclusive Rugs" shipping from Poland. I am SO happy with the fur length and color of this skin, from what I can tell thus far, it'll be perfect.
