Title: First WIP - All Metal
Post by: LekíRal on Jan 23, 2019, 06:58 PM
Hey guys!
I just recently started my first kit and got a little ambitious so I decided to do all metal armor!
My husband (Den Barren) and I designed the plates a few days ago, so I spent the last couple of days shaping the plates and then painting and weathering them.
I still have quite a bit left to do as far as the weathering goes.
Let me know what you all think!

first off fantastic work over all, second and some one should correct me if i'm wrong, cause i haven't had much experience with female chest plates, but shouldn't there still be spacing between the chest plates and the diamond.

Beautiful craftsmanship! As you said, once you cut the sections for the chest diamond, you're golden. I can't wait to see more of this build!

Just finished weathering the chest plates! I still have to cut out the center for the chest diamond, but I think itís coming along pretty well!

Another update!
I just finished the shoulders, as well as the cod plate (knees are still being painted). I made a couple of filler plates because I thought that the gap between the collar and my chest plates was going to be too big, but I donít actually need them.
My husband and I have also been working on my cape (behind the belts, shoes, and gloves) and my vest!
I also attached a picture of my boots, gloves, and my belts that I plan on using.
I would love to hear what you all think!

Once the vest is at a place where it will fit correctly and stay on- yes! I tried it last night and it just didnít do it justice with how loose the vest was since we havenít closed the sides yet.

Okay guys!
I have finished all of my soft parts!
I was going to go for a burgundy flight suit, but decided to go with teal after finding scrubs that matched perfectly!
After tailoring, I sewed the two pieces together and added a zipper down the front.
For the vest I used a pleather material with 3 straps on the side that close by a snap on the back!
All to do now is finish my helmet and gauntlets and attach the rest of my armor to the vest!
