Hi all,
I've been mobilised with the Navy as of the middle of this month so unless this is go time, I probably won't be able to submit pre-app and full app until August.

That being said,
Here's what I have so far.

Some of these pictures have easily fixable errors such as spacing, but my mum would have ripped my head off if I asked her to take more photos for me  :(





I thought my cod plate problem was simply that the sash wasn't low enough, but it appears I do need to do something additional to fix it. Elastic is allowed in that area right?


I adjusted the lengths of wire to make it more con friendly.


Here is the new chest display and rank rope positioning.


I'm aware that pictures didn't post in full resolution last time, here is a link to the imgur album which should hopefully have closer details if these don't.

Please can I get feedback asap, if it's only small things I may have time to fix it.

Thank you!

The main issue I see is that the cod piece sits far away from your body and, like the rest of the armor, it needs to fit snug. The rest of your armor fits you so well!

The ab also appears crooked, but when looking at its alignment with the chest it looks perfect. It appears the right side is longer than the left, but if you know that you cut out the an and both outer edges are the same length, then it could be a trick on the eye by the shaping. Even so, it still made need to be trimmed on that right side to make it appear straight. I had to do this to my ab plate, my left side is actually slightly shorter than my right but when you look at it from the front it was the only way to get the bottom of the ab plate to look like it went straight across my midsection instead of looking tilted and it looked tilted because of the shaping for sure. Hope that wasn't too confusing! That's all I have so far.

Hi J'Khara!
Thank you for your feedback, I had actually taken updated pictures and posted them on my WIP in the Vok'Chi section. I didn't update them here because I didn't want to double post :P
I fixed the Cod plate float, and the ab plate was out of alignment so I fixed that too

Here's the imgur link for the new photos

Thank you for letting me know! The cod is much better. You might consider asking your RS if you are ready for regional pre-app. It looks like you're ready for more eyes to take a look.  :like:
