Sabine Wren (S2)

"But Cassie, weren't you working on a second custom kit?"
Why yes, yes I was. But then Chirstmas happened and I ended up with a Sabine kit. So now the custom is on hold in favor of starting Sabine. My goal is to have her complete by Celebration, but if I don't it won't be a big deal. I'd rather have her done right than rushed.

To start this off, I'll make a list;
Quote
Helmet
Maker: RuthlessFX
Status: Complete

Base Armor (Shoulders, Collar, Chest, Elbows, Knees, Boots)
Maker: Eitanya Designs
Status: Complete

Additional Armor (gauntlets)
Maker: Templates by Eitanya, assembled by me & Dirgha'tus
Status: Complete

Additional Armor (Leg Flares)
Maker: Myself
Status: Complete

Blasters
Maker: 3D file by LToy CreationsRebelRousingProps, printed by me
Status: Complete

Paint Sprayer
Maker: 3D file by 3DPropsNL, printed by me
Status: Complete

Gloves
Maker: unknown, got from eBay
Status: Complete

Flightsuit (Top & Pants)
Maker: Eitanya
Status: Complete

Boots
Maker: Mossimo Avis in Black
Status: Complete

Belts
Maker: DarmanProps
Status: Complete

Wig
Maker: Arda (Magnum in TealEmerald Green, will dye darker blue)
Status: Complete

Painting of Kit
Maker: Eitanya
Status: Complete



Instead of starting on the helmet, I decided to start with making the gauntlets. Eitanya was kind enough to send me her templates and while working on them I made a few modifications to update them for the new season. Dirgha'tus is who did most of the assembly on the gauntlets, I cut everything out and did some of the intricate sanding with files.

I started with the boxes/displays first as those would be the trickiest.



The displays were based off of this image, figuring it'd give it more life than just a plain display screen. They were done with a clear plastic which we painted the displays on and then placed another sheet of clear plastic over the painted display.


I also noticed something fun while studying this image; There's an additional plate between the gauntlet and the hand plate. So I cut one out of Sintra and I'll figure out how to attach it. I'm also looking at alternatives so I'm able to still move my wrist.


I notched out the one box to better match reference images;


The gauntlets are all but painted now (& minus one screen in one gauntlet), and I'm pretty happy with how they came out. They're proportionate to me and I think they match the references pretty well (as far as how high they go on her arms, how big they are compared to her arm size, etc). Sorry for the bad photo quality; phone was dying so the flash wouldn't turn on









Will update as more happens, but now it's a waiting game for making sure fabric swatches match and printing the guns.

Thanks for reading!

Progress;

I ordered my wig today!
Originally I was going to go with a Arda Magnum in Teal but the more I looked at it and after talking it over with a friend, we decided the Emerald Green was a better base color. I plan on Sharpie-dyeing the roots for accurate coloring, so I also ordered some color swatches of the Emerald Green to test dyeing methods on.

Will update with screenshots of the wig as soon as I'm on a computer that lets me access imgur for my photos -_-

Yay! I'm so excited that you're making a Sabine kit! This is going to be awesome.
I hope it lives up to everyone's expectations. I'm really excited for it and doing a canon kit is a learning process :)
Gaunts are looking great! I'm planning on upgrading mine this year so it's nice to see your progress.
Her gaunts are hard! Originally bending them, Dirgha'tus and I were like "these are not going to work out", but then adding some bondo and sanding really brought them together :) But yours look awesome, I was using them as one of my references when working on mine


ETA:
Wig I was originally going to get


Wig I ended up buying


Here's a wig (not the one I got) that shows the Emerald Green color better

My wig is the magnum with emerald green Wefts added I believe. It worked pretty well. Every two or three wears I have to retain the bangs though or they stab me in the eye when I put my bucket on, so keep that in mind.
