Long and short: the thighs need to be wider and longer and cover more area. I placed your photo next to the screen used costume for comparison

Unfortunately, sewing is far from my specialty either but what I do know what can help is to dart the ankles. You may need to see a local alterations studio or a seamstress to assist you, but let's get it wearable first before making a final determination.

I do have to agree with Jaster on this.

Perhaps it looks a little odd because you're not wearing your holsters or cod plate, but we need more in terms of coverage.

More curve on the thigh plates, too.  The edges are floating.  The screen-used thighs also seem to be made of thinner material.  Your knees also seem a little on the small side.  Joey's side-by-side image is very helpful in seeing what needs some adjusting. :)

I'll walk you through how to shape the curves in video sometime later if I remember.  I was planning on getting your helmet almost ready for paint today.  :jango:

I can remake the thighs.  And they're only floating because there's not attachment up there. Also, this sintra is about as thin as you can get without it being too thin.

I DON'T have time to make new knees!!! Those were made from scratch, and it was a painstaking effort. I only know one person who makes screen-accurate Jango knees, and he charges $143 for them. Plus, I don't know if he makes them in more than one size.

I wouldn't worry too much about the knees Jennari. They're not egregiously small like the thigh plates.

Knees are probably okay enough, but like I said on messenger, I'll look into whipping up a better set as soon as I have time.

To get the right thigh size, put the flightsuit on with knees and codpiece attached.  Measure two fingers up from the top of the knee plate and make a chalk mark on the flightsuit (because chalk washes out easily).  Make another chalk mark level with the bottom of the codpiece.  Measure two fingers up from the higher chalk mark and make a third mark there.  Then take off the flightsuit and measure the distance (with a ruler or measuring tape) between the two farthest chalk marks.  That will be the correct length of your thigh plates.  Scale your cutting pattern to that.

Remember that thighs have to curve on both the X and Y axis to conform to the shape of your leg.

FINALLY rub'n'buffed the chest plates, with the exception of the left one since it needs more work.

Closer and closer to the end!

Made PHENOMENAL progress this weekend. I'm practically done! WARNING: This is a pic heavy post.  ;D



Before and after.







All the armor, sans the helmet, is weathered.

   

















ALMOST all the greeblies and parts are secured on the gauntlets. Also still need to paint the rocket.











And the knee darts are attached.

All that's left is to weather my helmet once I get it, and attach the remaining plates to the soft parts.

Wow!  That's a LOT of shiny/grimy armor!  Looking good, so far, and I really can't wait to see you kitted up!

Good orientation on the darts, nice observation with the larger one on top.

I know you haven't gotten into painting the gauntlet laser/rocket, but the nose should be copper instead of brass.  Might be the lighting though.

Well, unless anyone thinks the paint job needs work, helmet is ready to be shipped to me! I'll weather it properly once I have it.

Who did the paint work?

The black stripes around the dome should be closer together.

Can I see how they sit in relation to the turn signals on the front of the helmet?
