Finished all alterations and took pics modeling everything. All I should need for soft parts now in order to meet CRLs is a second waist item and my gloves to arrive. I plan to make a leather belt for holster/ammo/bags. I also need to finish hemming the cape.

Almost finished with soft parts - the final piece is this two-tier leather belt which I just need to attach the hardware to and oil/weather. I also will be making a leg holster that attaches to this and possibly some ammo pouches and knee armor straps.




Update: modeled - still waiting on the hardware to arrive.

I've decided on just making a beeswax/coconut oil finisher to buff it with and then sun tan it when there's actually some sun to let it get a nice aged patina rather than dye or paint it. I just think it'll end up looking a lot nicer and more aged/weathered/in universe with a natural patina on it.





Update: made the holster







And got 2 yards of double gauze fabric in sand color for the cape. I'm going to dip-dye the bottom half of it a dusty purple like the flight suit.

Finished belt with neatsfoot oil/beeswax mix and saddlesoap and got my new fabric for my cape - its a double gauze linen which I'm honestly thinking I may not hem, or may just sort of stitch across where the hem would be, about an inch in, to keep the rough edge look. I'll need to weather it and everything else. I'm thinking of adding a brown leather spat to help the white shoes tie in with the other brown aspects of the costume.

This looks awesome so far!  I love the two tier belt! Also the way the cape hangs showing off the back...solid.

Got a different pair of gloves



I think these will work a little better. Leather gloves from leather mystics. I'm going to sew thermal thread at the fingertips to make them texting gloves if I can.

Update:

Added velcro to the vest for chest and back armor, added grommets and got paracord to have lace up sides instead of the velcro/snap ordeal I had before, painted grommets with oil based paint marker (idk if this will work but I'll find out). I'll be trying it on tonight to see how the plates fit.  :)




This is some solid work. Keep it up.

Thanks!

Beautiful work! My one question is whether the cape thingy on the front will interfere with plate placement or not? I really hope not because this is looking really nice!

I don't see why it would, since it's just going to lay over top of the collar plates, not underneath them. I don't see any rules in the CRLs against having soft parts going over top of plates except that waist items can't touch ab plate, but people have bandoliers and stuff and the cape can go over my back plate so I don't see why it wouldn't be able to go over my collar plates unless there's some rule I am missing?  :)
