WIP Ursa Wren
« on: Oct 27, 2019, 05:29 PM »
Hello all,
I didnít post a WIP earlier because I had so little done, but with my flightsuit finished I think I have something to finally show for my first WIP. Also, I had wanted to finish my custom kitís Brigade approval, so with that finished as well Iím good to get started.

Some reference photos:
Iím doing this from my phone so hopefully the image is large enough. If not, Iíll modify this post later.



Flightsuit:

Overall size etc


Color Reference:


Belt:
Currently looks like a Jedi belt lol


Belt Items:






I have the smaller pieces and cartridge thing printing now so no photos of those yet.

Anyway, the wig is currently being worked on and thatís currently it.

Feedback more than welcome!

Ok worked on some stuff tonight with our head Ruusalor. Basically the leather pieces for the holsters and belt. A lot of the small bits like I said earlier are being printed such as the cartridges, buckle, t-pieces, and Iím going to finish the holster myself as well. One blaster is further along than the other, I just need to keep working on them in the evenings.









Anyway, weíll get the leather pieces dyed, gonna use a chocolate brown, and Iíll receive the remaining pieces so I can work on them.

Question: I have some leather that is nice and pliable that I thought I might as well use for the tabards, however it has a texture that is visibly different and I want to make sure itís ok to use by your standards

Lovely build so far.

Are you planning on taking this to the brigades at some point or just getting this kit official?

I'm going all the way with this build to Brigades, that's my plan.

I have a few more photos from today's work.







We figured out a workaround for my leather question previously. Found some better material around the house that will work better as its a nice grade and doesn't have the texture I was worried about.

So right now, the gauntlets are basically finished and the blasters are almost finished as well. Just need to finish sanding the whole lot of these little belt pieces. Once that's done, I'll be working on the next stage of the actual armor plates, which I already have templates for except the chest and ab. I just need to find them and get some photos once I get there.

Looking great!

The grays of your flight suit seem to have too much contrast. The lighter grey needs to be darker.

I like that you are doing both waist items in leather! I might think of doing that upgrade later.

I'll have to look for a slightly darker gray then, first. If push comes to shove, I could dye this suit as it is just slightly, but it's a ponte knit. Not sure how that would work out.

Yes, I like both as leather quite a bit, mostly because I like how it feels lol.

Also, I'll have a gauntlet update soon!

Ok everybody! I have a possible sample for a darker gray and I need opinions on it.





Same sample however the first is in indirect sunlight and the other is more indoors. I think it's a viable option, I do have at least one more sample coming in.

How did that other sample swatch turn out? 

I quite like the contrast you have there.

I haven't received it yet, which is a bit of a bummer. I did receive word it was on backorder, so I'm thinking it may be a while before I actually see this other sample.

Alrighty, I am back! So I finally have samples and the wig for you to see!
These next photos are of a medium gray and a dark gray together in various lighting (yellow, white, and natural) the dark gray is the same tone as the previous dark gray I had, I was just silly and forgot it at home




These are now of the wig, the lighting is a bit harsh but thereís silver and gray hair through the wig





Very excited to finally have some movement. I havenít purchased the fabric yet. Also, I have found a dude (Iíll get his info) who has made a way to do the jet pack with the back plate. Iím planning on checking it out

Anyway feedback welcome!
