Hi All,

Some of you may have seen the post the lovely and talented miss Hydra made about her Ice inspired armor. I'm the lady who commissioned her to make it and I'm finally (mostly - can you ever be completely?) done with the kit and would like to post it here to share. Again, HUGE thank you to Hydra

First off - the helmet. After seeing Hydra's armor taking shape, I definitely wanted to go with a Night Owl inspired look as she was building it off of Bo Katan's kit. So I happened upon Falin's post that he was recasting his Night Owl in a new version. I hopped on that REAL quick and am super happy with what he sent.

My wonderful husband did all sorts of work on it trimming it down and sanding it. He also installed the ear caps and got it all ready to go for painting. He is also responsible for the paint job on it, which really impressed me (I know I know - I'm biased - but really he DID do a pretty good job) as he really managed to match Hydra's work quite nicely.

So please excuse the fact that we had to take these last night in the middle of a bad storm (having one right now too!). They were shot in my bathroom which, oddly, kinda matches the kit. Anyway, I had so much fun putting this kit together. I think Hydra did an AMAZING job on the armor, and I assembled all the soft bits and such myself.

Here is a full body shot for you:



Here's the back, which I particularly love, because it was my first attempt at dyeing fabric. The original was gray - I dyed it ice blue to match and did the bottom a sort of subtle value scale. I'm really happy with the way it came out. I made the little hood and capelet too.


Full shot showing entire kit:


Requisite silly shot:


Hope you all like it! It was an...experience putting everything together. I'm REALLY happy with the boots - found them at Goodwill two days ago for $5! And just the overall look. The character is Nyc'tea Alba, named (here you go my fellow nature geeks) for the original Linnaeus genus name for the snowy owl, and the species name  for the barn owl).

I think it looks great! Watched the progress pics Hydra posted and wondered where this was going. Look like it all came together really well. If I were to have any criticism at all it would be the color of the boots. Having one brown bit while everything else is gray or black really catches my eye, but I'm sure it's nothing you haven't thought of, and it's not like the boots can't be dyed darker. I also like what you did with the gloves, having the blue over black, that's sharp. Anyway, wish you much happy trooping in a wonderful kit. Go forth and get official!
