Title: Story's WIP ~ soft parts
Post by: Storyteller on Feb 18, 2016, 07:21 PM
Heyo Vode!

Started working on my kit recently and thought I should drop by here. Here is a rough sketch of how I would want my kit to look.

(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/Runidral%20Final_zpsclr3ght6.png)

As far as the design goes I'm going to do my best to stick to it, but who knows when inspiration may strike  ;)

So I started my cape after several pattern drafts and a practice cape... Didn't mess up on the fabric so that's a score! Here is a pic of the basic cape.... didn't have anyone to take the picture so not the best picture but oh well  :P
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/3B86C096-1C81-427C-81B1-379FFF3DA4A8_zpscqu3bro8.jpg)

I'm planning on adding a mythosaur's skull, similar to Aria's kama  :D http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=90575.0 (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=90575.0)  These are the colors

The skull will be the yellow and then I'm thinking about doing a red panel of sorts down the middle...

I like your cape shape! Looks like a good concept for your kit colours- I'm a big fan of multi colour kits, and I like how you're tying in the colours and stripe on the armour with the cape. 

Ariarenee's Kama is pretty amazing isn't it?  Her patience with that one must have been out of this world.

Haha, I'm famous!  ;) Sort of.

As always, Story, looks good so far!

I would say your famous! Your Twi'lek kit is looking amazing btw!

Her kits are definitely amazing! Can't wait till my kit is done to troop with her!

Anyway, realized I never updated this thread with new pics... So without further ado

What can I say, your kit "may" have had an influence on me...

Daleks!!!

 ;D Daleks are nice... Thanks  :)

I really like the design of your cape.

Thank you very much!

Kandosii, vod, ori'kandosii.   ;D

Ori'vore vod!  ;D

Finished my girth belt, and I weathered the buckle for it and my bet (future amo belt) but photobucket doesn't feel like cooperating at the moment so pictures will have to wait until later. My flak vest is also almost complete, but I messed up the neck so adjustments are being made.  :laugh:


****Edit****

Pictures ahead!

Hopefully can get some work done on the kit tomorrow :)

Realized I never updated this thread... oops  :laugh: lots of pics ahead  ;D

Ok here it goes, very pic heavy lol

First of all I made a dummy out of an old shirt, a microphone stand, and a lot of plastic bags  :laugh:
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/4903BB47-8A9E-4FC5-8F1D-FC44C6A92217_zps7cwidu8s.jpg)

Spent some time adjusting the cape to make it flow better (ignore my bad position of my girth belt).
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/146F8127-A4C3-4517-9D66-9F4DD3E59852_zpstg3x9xxf.jpg)

I got new gloves that fit better
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/2F6531B2-FC63-4FAD-82B5-5037EBAD87C4_zpsyw3ecqde.jpg)

Last but certainly not least I worked more on my flak vest. Hurrah for progress!
Front
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/E6C52AE8-9039-4D60-B956-9A55AA6FBB69_zpszzvxu2b5.jpg)

Back (there is a part that i have to iron on the left side...)
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/27660A84-4976-46A4-B042-48A46ACC0F10_zpsj0hn5tfa.jpg)

And then side views. I pinned the vest to the dummy for now, but i adjusted my hook and eyes so they would hold the vest where the pins are now. I also still have to sew one side of the vest on the shoulder. I'm thinking about using an invisible zipper to be able to get the vest over my head, but still have it be tight enough on my neck.
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/3CF5E4E1-E5E3-44F3-A1FB-B6C6EFED0E91_zpsyiqz85y0.jpg)

And to top it all off here is the vest on me...
(http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u427/soccerstoryteller2899/F5281E00-CEEC-4CE9-A034-1A6404E9EC9D_zpsxszgpug1.jpg)

I still have to actually sew the left shoulder, so if it looks funky that's why. I also plan on adding another eyelet towards the bottom of the vest for a better fit.  ;D

Never thought about this system to close your flak vest :o That's a good idea easy to sew and to put on :D

Really nice work !

Im being lazy and just quoting my clan build thread  :P

Thanks guys  ;D Can't stop this progress lol  :P so I finished the cape and the shoulder on the flak vest. I just have to add the shoulder tabs on the vest. ALmost done with the softparts! Besides weathering...

I don't think i'm forgetting anything....

I also added a third eyelet to the vest

These are really cool closures for the flak vest. I love the idea!

The flak vest part is giving me fits. How did you get it over your head? Does it close on the shoulders too?

Yea the vest is definitely difficult.  :laugh: I have a hidden zipper in the left shoulder seam along with a few small hook and eyes to cover the zipper. I'll add some pictures of this and updates later  ;D


*****edit*****
And here come the pics. Like I said there is a hidden zipper along with a few hook and eyes to close around the zipper

My vest is complete, so cheers for that. Also found another belt that I can use.

Unfortunately with photobucket changing their hosting policy, some of my images are lost, but I'll just show the current progress of everything now.

Here is everything before weathering

Weathered softparts. The cape still needs some work.
