New WIP that was slowed down by all the worlds mojo
« on: Jul 07, 2021, 11:12 AM »
Been taking me a while to get my stuff together, put all the assembled parts together for the first time.
Found some problems, such as my gauntlets freely rotate and need to top that. The fit of all my soft part is pretty good. (vest is a little tight, but gained 10 lbs after breaking some bones) I like my blasters, was told the holsters look a little to tactical however not sure how to get them to be more acceptable for approval but they hold the toy blasters well. Next step is to work on a armored Loin Cloth. Looking for more input.

Here are some images of my webbing. I amtrying to make the holster look less tactical by putting mesh material over it. However  but not getting my desired results and it doesn't break up the outline as desired, just makes it look dorky. The original holsters are  drill holster that were ripped apart and modified.

Hi! Love what you have so far. For the gauntlets, I'd say using some foam or velcro to keep them in place would work. For the holsters... most canon star wars people have leather holsters, and I can see how someone said your gear looks tactical and earthy. Talk to whoever said your holsters weren't okay and ask what you can do to make them more star warsy. Maybe add some greeblies?

I have been working on my DL 44's holster (Airsoft base smaller than most) attempting to get the tactical feel out of it while keeping a good secure fit with the blaster.  I added blue strips of cloth I also used in the creation of the cape. I also used some mesh material earlier that did not achieve the desired look. I left it on as a layer under the blue cloth strips.

I am going to add a armored plate to the holster by pulling the mesh material through the strips and adding Velcro, this way the plate can almost float freely while walking while still being solidly attached to the holster.

Going to call this part done until it is time to weather, added a armor plate with a 70s style design on it. Also going to fill in screw holes in the Blaster this weekend so i can totally set this element aside and get to work on other pieces to hopefully get approved soon!

Armored loin cloth to be used in place of groin armor.

Trying on my plates for the first time, just got the Velcro sewn to the vest. Looks like it should turn out fine with consideration for spacing.

First time with everything put together and on at the same time.  Don't like how the knees make me look pigeon toed
