Title: Oya from Nanaimo! Countess Ursa Wren custom kit WIP.
Post by: Tracyn_Buurenaar on Jan 06, 2018, 06:19 PM
Hi all!
Hi everyone, my name is Camille and I'm from Nanaimo, my fiance WolfofWinter (Sho'cye Buurenaar), has made me a profile on here so I can check things out!  I've met a few of you already at AP's (Islanders anyways) and I will see you at the AP next weekend!

I've got a jump on my kit already with his help for my Countess Ursa Wren custom kit.

- Helmet (Night Owl from TMA) is on the way.
- All the Ursa Wren armour plates are cut, just need to be shaped.
- Soft parts are mostly acquired, need a vest basically
- Weapons are going to be 2 x Westar 34's (thank you Jarrod)

Thats the basics there.

I will be trying to get the kit done in time for Capital City Comic Con in March, and will hopefully be OM by then!

So blasters are acquired (thank you Alaina and Jarrod)

Plates are cut out but need to be trimmed, sanded and  shaped.

Hi everyone! 
Lots of progress has been made!!  Plates are sanded and shaped, primed, painted and weathered!
WIP# 2 here: https://imgur.com/a/TTPG9

What's left:
Waiting for:
Nite Owl bucket to ship
Eternal Armoury Bella Gauntlets to ship
Leather riding gaiters (shipped)

Then GardenGeek has graciously offered to help with some of the soft parts (vest)
Just need to figure out a loin cloth and a cape (maybe), pick up some gloves and finish detailing the blasters!

Then stick it all together in time to do pre app and go to C4!!!

Thanks for all the support so far!!!  ;D ;D ;D

I have a couple of questions about your soft parts as I am looking to get a kit together inspired by Clan Wren.
I never thought about leather riding gaitors, is it cheaper than trying to find a pair of tall boots? Where did you order them from and  does it pass the CRLs? Going the gaiter route is smart as I could wear boots I already own. Smashing idea!
Also question on where aquire  a belt and holsters as I am not good at leather work.
The kit looks great and I look forward to seeing more.
