Long time no progress. I did say itíd be a slow build lol

Anyway, some progress done on my gauntlets! My friend was kind enough to 3D print me some that were scaled down to 80% of the normal size. He did some primer filler and a light coat of paint to get an idea of how itíd look.

I then spent some time sanding and spot putty filling and Iím pretty happy with the results. Itís quite smooth now. Iím going to try to hit it with some primer tomorrow to see if Iíve missed any spots.




Iím missing one of the clips and one of the tops to a rocket, but I think he said he could reprint those easily for me.

Thatís it for now!

Yup, that looks like my life with the gauntlets. I may put a coat of primer on them tonight and see if I need more spot putty before this weekend

What?!? Another update in the same week?!?

Well itís not all good news in this one, but such is the build process. So I dyed my top and now itís too dark... so while I decide if I want to torture myself with color remover or not, Iíve turned to some friends whoíve built the costume for advice.

Failed dye attempt:


Looking at these for options instead. My friend has the top below; Iíd just have to add the second sleeve and sleeve detail. She said she leaves her belly plate on and attached the rest each time she kits up. That may be the route I go with. Things to think about.


Iíd buy two to Frankenstein the vest, to add the second sleeve and make matching gloves since the crl calls for the same material and color as the flightsuit/vest


I could, in theory leave the legs and cod pieces attached when I dekit for this option.

Anyway, just my thoughts with where Iím at in the build right now.

Sorry to hear that your dye job didn't work out.  I'm sure you'll figure out the best solution.   :)

i think these two will work out. this is more of that "dark charcoal grey" color that's truer to the show. cause her suit isn't quite black but it's not grey. it's got a slightly weathered look to it, which i think these colors will fit. hopefully they come in as the pictured colors :)

I sure hope so too because I ordered them this afternoon! Time will soon tell!

If all works out color wise, I think all Iíll have to do is add the seam down the legs (should be easy enough) and make gloves out of the 2nd shirt I bought (never made gloves, will be an experience lol)

in theory it's tracing your hand with some seam allowance added in then sewing it together then turning it right side out.

but notice i said "in theory"  ;)

Still waiting on the second half of my ďflightsuitĒ to arrive; top came in and itís quite soft. Hope it matches!

Got my gauntlets primed and silvered. Might need to lightly sand it before I paint it the blue but for now, Iím happy with them. Obviously still have to add all the little do dads lol





Also my friend gifted me some amazing rubies westar 35s! Theyíre the perfect fit for my tiny hands lol they still need another coat and maybe a little more sanding but theyíre getting there!



So thatís my mini update for now!
(Edited to fix my dang errors. Tired Kryamla is tired lol)

Minor update:

Well the body suit arrived and it looked nothing like the picture. It was a shinier grey and lighter than shown. Sigh... such is life. I have one more option Iím going to try before I make a bodysuit.

I was having some major paint issues and after trying every trick in the book, nothing was stopping the orange peel and bubbling paint. So I returned my unused paints and bought paint from the Montana brand. So far, itís working quite well (granted Iíve painted the base light grey for the blasters). Fingers crossed for me! Hoping to get the blasters done soon and get back to trimming the armor.

Also ordered my nite owl from NME! Canít wait for it! :D

Thatís about it, sorry no picture updates this time around!
