Small update

I made a sash yesterday. (The belt is just a place holder till I find the brown one I was planning on using.)

 

Today I added the top stitching to the sash.





I shot an idea over to a Ruus' friend and they said it should be fine so I made a quick pattern to add some layers to my backplate.  I needs a minimum of one more inch but I didn't think it looked right even then so I cut out a few more.

 


And I added the leather covers to one side of my vest.  Nearly all the elastic is covered except the connection points and that blends nicely into the flight suit.  It is only noticeable it if you knew to look for it.  Please ignore some of the creative stitching, my machine was having fits today.  It was a little bit claustrophobic with the straps not having as much give but I think I can stand it.

I did some stuff.  ;)

I did a bit of work on the additional panels for the backplate. 



Then I patterned, cut, sanded and heat formed the pieces for my tasset plates.





Then I primed all the new pieces.




I am also fiddling around with a possible kama. I used the odd duck panels from the seat covers to construct it.  My siblings agree that it doesn't look quite right as it is now.  So should I cut it into a V (dolphin tail-esk) or cut the center panel flat across just to even out the middle bit?

For the kama, I think that if you do cut it, you should do the V design. Also the plates look awesome. You're just cranking this kit out, I really admire your dedication and stamina!

Happy New Year!

I put some silver on my plates!









For the kama, I think that if you do cut it, you should do the V design.

I did go for the V-cut as that was the consensus from my clan as well.  Also thanks  :)
 


And I started scaling a gut/cummerbund-esk thing from my left over leather bits that are to small for anything else.



I plan on giving it a grey trim and I'll keep adding to it as I build and have more leather bits left over.

Paint designs!

I sat down and colored probably eight different patterns but I am leaning toward this one.



The grey side would be reflected across as I think that the grey looks better and ties in my softs better.

The backplate paint design might change too as I was sent some awesome inspiration photos from a recruit/foundling of our clan.

Thanks!  How's your build going?

Pretty good, thanks for asking! The holidays have given me much more time to work on my kit. I will probably be posting an update in a few days.

Weather was so nice when I got home that I just had to get a couple layers of paint onto the armor.  Not happy with the back plates so those will get a lovely sanding and and some new paint.





   




Then I made and added straps onto one of the shin plates.







I also cut out the grey leather under-the-gauntlet cuff.  Once I get those fitted I can heat form my gauntlets.

 :) Thank you!


Update:

I finished making the leather cuff for under my gauntlets.







I made the straps and mounted them to the second shin plate



Then I added some of the extra trauma plates to the shins





I got the final layers of paint on the tasset plates and then I strapped them together.  I really love the way they hang and the confusing nature of how the paint all splashes and collides together.  My vod'ika told me it looks like modern art.

Thank you all!

I got home and the humidity and weather were both co-operating for painting.  I went for take two on the backplate.  I love the way it turned out.





I still need to strap it together but I absolutely love it.  It's making me rethink some of my other paint.  Might have a few tweaks to make.
