Coronae's kit #2
« on: Feb 14, 2017, 11:10 AM »
Hey ladies! I've started work on a new kit recently, because I love my Sabine, but I want to avoid getting her all banged up by wearing her all days at multi day cons. So I'm working on a maroon and gold kit. I'm currently about 70% done with soft parts, and have everything I need for them in my possession. My flight suit is black, flak vest and neck seal are maroon and in progress. Still trying to get the fit on the flak vest quite right, but hoping to get that sorted in the next couple days.

Onto pictures: my focus has been on soft parts so far because Michigan is too cold right now to carve armor, but I do have my basic chest design thanks to Aria. I'm trying out a chest protector to avoid having to dart sintra, but I'm still going to need to add some sintra at the top and bottom to fill in the outer corners and not have weird cut outs.



The big thing I got done is my kama. I really wanted the clan logo on it, since I can't have it on Sabine, and here's the result!





Let me know what you think!

That's looking really snazzy!  I like it.

Small update for today! Now that Shutocon is over my new kit is my focus. So tonight I grabbed some time to make my belt. It's made of suede and dyed to match my boots. I'll also be getting a tube of rub n buff to turn the buckle gold in the near future. I'll try and snap some pics of it tomorrow once the dye is done drying. Also in the future, I'll be removing the suede tassel on the back of the boot and replacing with a wookie hair one, and then wrapping the ankles in wookie braids.

Looking good, I like the wookie braid wrap idea.

Had a very productive weekend! Got all my plates cut and most of them shaped with the help of Aria and Mi'ix. Now they just need a bit of additional trimming. I think I'll be using a combination of Velcro and snaps to attach. As for my flak vest, I need to install a new zipper, as the bottom fits perfectly but the neck seal is huge. Hoping to get all that done and add some terraflex detail so I can start painting at the armor party next weekend.

Nice work. Though I can't help but think that the cod plate is tiny, given that part of it will be covered by belts. Either you'll be showing the crotch of your trousers or the belts will be very low slung...

Holy progress Batman! Been working hard to attempt a beta test and get some pre app pictures at Midwest media expo this weekend.

First up, soft parts! I've added a flap to conceal the zipper since these were taken, and my shoulder bells will keep the shoulder flaps from being all awkward. I'm also not wearing the correct pants/boots because my original pair food not match in sunlight the way they did in the store. Replacements have since been acquired. Also keep in mind I've gotten better at tying the sash, this was more to get the general look.





Next up, armor!










Still finishing gaunts, weapons, and attachment, but I'm confident I'll be ready for Saturday!

Wow! I really love your color scheme. I hope nothing gets canceled and you can have your first troop in your new kit.
