Ivven Oyre, femmando (Update Oct 2015)

UPDATE 1/30/2018

So, Photobucket is dead. That sure did a number on this forum. This is me trying to start the tedious process of rebuilding my build threads! :D

Here's a few photos of my Ivven Oyre kit. I first debuted Version 1 of this kit back in 2010, and Version 2, which is still pretty true to what it looks like these days, came along back in 2011. She was inspired by a few things. 1) Can I make a kit with pink in it that doesn't read like a "pink kit"? 2) I wanted the colors to come from the OT trilogy palette, namely, black and white for stormtroopers, and khaki/tans for Luke/Tatooine, and 3) I wanted her to look like a gunslinger and for her profession to be a high risk smuggler.

HELMET: MDS-B (size medium)
ARMOR: 18 gauge aluminum. Drafted, dished, and planished by me.
GAUNTLETS: Cups and Sintra.
FLIGHTSUIT: 96% cotton 4% spandex twill. Designed, patterned, and sewn by me.
VEST: Sewn by Shak-ti 4 Him, modified by me.
GEARBELT/HOLSTERS: By lonewolf1183.
EE-1 BLASTER: By Jare Hasan.
Q2 Blasters: Toys, modifed by me.















EDIT: Below is my old thread, broken photobucket links and all. Preserving it as is for now, in case I go through and fix it one day.

UPDATE 6/17/2011

Debuting Ivven v2, with all her many upgrades. Have to say, this is the first time I’ve ever personally liked my own kit, so I’m quite happy with it. I added knees finally and replaced various armor pieces (the helmet included). I’ve replaced most of the soft parts, including the vest, flightsuit (which I heavily modified from purchase), and boots, hoping to give the kit a more natural look while still keeping with the design schedule of the previous one. Real leather gear belt by lonewolf1183. Vest by Shak-ti 4 Him, modified slightly by myself. EE-1 blaster by Jare Hasan. Helmet base by M-DSB.

This suit is made of metal (18 gauge aluminum), hand-hammered and shaped by myself. Gauntlets are currently plastic, though I plan to upgrade to a metal and plastic hybrid.

Upgrades still left to do, hopefully before Dragon*Con:
-get a second blaster (possibly)
-obtain/make holsters
-add collar space to the vest and add a collar plate (ran out of time)
-get new gloves (possibly)
-the new gauntlets are currently made of plastic, but my goal is to upgrade them to a metal/plastic hybrid

These photos are from Animazement, ConCarolinas, and HeroesCon, where v2 was debuted over a two week period. ‘Zeherfoto’ pictures are by Riv.

Hoping to possibly do a more legitimate photoshoot of the costume once the aforementioned upgrades are finished.



UPDATE 9/10/2011

Here’s the inevitable picture drop from this year’s Dragon*Con. Ivven’s had a number of small-but-important upgrades (including adding a collar plate, some paint touch ups/new weathering, and the addition of two Q2 pistols that I modified from the basic toy version)! Thanks to the photographers who took these.

UPDATE 1/2013

Been several months since convention season, but I never posted any pictures. No new updates since last year, but these are some pretty nice shots of the costume, anyways. I figure this summer I'll start work on some upgrades and new interchangeable pieces for this kit.

Lucas McCoy shot the following photos for me:



















UPDATE 10/2015

Designed and sewed up a totally new flightsuit for this costume, so a new shoot was in order!

ORIGINAL POST (7/27/2010):

Ivven Oyre, version 1

This suit is made from metal (aluminum), hand-hammered and shaped by myself. Most of the soft parts were purchased from various places online and then modified. Real leather gear belt by lonewolf1183. Vest by Shak-ti 4 Him, modified slightly by myself. Blaster by Jare Hasan. The helmet is currently a Rubies one piece that I plan on upgrading out of ASAP.

Ivven was debuted at Celebration V.

Planned Upgrades, when time permits:
- Purchase a better helmet ASAP.
- Possibly switch the white half-vest out for a black one, so the plates pop more.
- More foot armor. The plate I had for the upper foot felt fine, but rubbed on the boots. I don’t want to wear a hole through them, so for now, I’m going without.
- Properly paint and weather the gauntlets.
- Knees, when I can figure out how to make some that aren't impeding.

What they said ;D. Spectacular work, as always.

As for knees, you could always just go with simple stylized plates over the front of the knees, rather than the wraparound Fett-style knees. Of course, with knees, shin and boot armor, your thighs will end up looking bare; maybe just a pair of smallish, 'light' thigh plates?

Simply Amazing! Black vest most definitely. Or possibly Dark Brown?

This came together beautifully, and it looks almost exactly like your concept art. :)

I agree that a black vest would be a nice contrast to the the light colour of the chest pieces. Right now they seem to blend in, and the contrast of a darker colour would really show them off.

Have you looked at standard vacuform fett knees with a simple elastic strap on the back?  That's what I wear for knees and have never had any issues with them impeding my movement.  Unless you're looking for something that you can actually kneel on?
