Story's WIP ~ soft parts
« 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.



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


I'm planning on adding a mythosaur's skull, similar to Aria's kama  :D 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...


Thoughts, comments?

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.

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

Front


Back (still not finished with the cape, also my neck seal was acting funny)


gloves


and sizing check before I sew the fabric girth belt


As always comments are appreciated!

Really like that cape...maybe it's the colors?  ;) And the gloves look very comfortable.

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!

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!



Details on buckle


and on belt


All the pictures I have for now!  ;D

If you consider little balls of condensed hate nice that is.

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:


Spent some time adjusting the cape to make it flow better (ignore my bad position of my girth belt).



I got new gloves that fit better


Last but certainly not least I worked more on my flak vest. Hurrah for progress!
Front


Back (there is a part that i have to iron on the left side...)


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.




And to top it all off here is the vest on me...








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
