Hey guys, I waited far too long and have far too many pictures. Here's the progress I've made over the last month and a half.

So not much has changed on the shoe front. I finished up weathering them and managed to break them in over the course of a week.





In late january I went to an armor party hosted by my Ruus'alor where they helped get my plates shaped properly






After the party I finally acquired some golf gloves that fit and began the process of removing the labels and adding conductive fabric to the fingertips so I can use touch screens while in kit.








Next I patterned up some hand plates and gave em some good ol fashioned weathering







My both beautiful and generous girlfriend got to work making my flak vest, patterning it off of a sleeveless t-shirt of mine.









The vest initially ended up being a little big, especially the front half.





So we made version 2.0! It still needs some darts in the back but overall a much better fit.








Afterwards, in her continued crafting radiance, my girlfriend began patterning and creating my shoulder bells











And because I am disgusting lucky to have her, she also made me some wookie braids from a cheap cosplay wig and inserted some pink extensions as a tribute to my aunt that I lost to breast cancer. It's important to me to have representations of their strength with me in kit. My girlfriend says it's a 4 strand circular braid so that it's symmetrical all the way around. I'll include a link to a short video she made showing the completed braid.

Next up was patterning and making my shins and knees. I dont have a lot of pictures of the patterning process, but here the shin after I PVC welded the two pieces together and then once I had added some reinforcements with epoxy sculpt





Then came the knee. I ended up cutting my knee out of 6mm sintra, whereas everything else was 3mm as I wanted the knee to be super durable. I filled in the gaps with epoxy sculpt, and put a layer of craft foam along the back side as some padding for my knee when I kneel down. Some extra bits for flair, greeblies and sanding until death is all they needed.














Here's a quick shot off all my armor laid out thus far:




Next is I made a set of thighs with hard case holsters attached. I ended up padding the insides with some thin craft foam to give my westars a snug fit.














After those were completed I started work on my gauntlets. Not many pictures but enjoy this gripping/climbing modification I borrowed from Jango




And there we have it! Everything I have worked on so far. If you wanna see my knife updated or the completed westar pistols, check out my weapons WIP thread as they'll be updated soon.
Thanks for all the positive thoughts and encouragement everyone. You guys are great.

It's been a couple years, but I kept at it and now I'm applying

This one is going to be mostly just pictures since I don't remember a lot of in-depth details. and I am pressed for time as I help my partner finish up her kit and Pack for Celebration.

Gauntlets:

Plates and soft parts:







And then disaster hit, but I fixed it just fine.


Belt Stuff:





New Westar 35s:






And to mount them to myself I hired my friend and leathersmith RedBirdTrade.

My Kit was approved on June 1st.

Here are some pictures I got at SWC of the kit just before it was approved and the first two official troops, Seattle Mariners SW Night, and Wa. Summer Con.
