My WIP
« on: Aug 11, 2015, 01:08 PM »
Ok.. liked Gnar Gnar's thread and thought it'd be a good idea to make myself a list to keep track of progress.
Feeling a tad overwhelmed!!

ok:
Flight suit - scrubs. done!
vest - almost complete
gloves - done!
boots - done!
Rope belt - need to make
ammo pouches - need to make
trophies - ??? if i have time
kama - need to make
loin cloth - need to make
shoulder cape - need to make

bucket - cheat bucket arriving tuesday
armor - primed! **still need to make knees**
gauntlets - shaped!
weapon - cheater boba gun coming tuesday

am i missing something? i'm missing something right?

Relax, we got you 8) 

 That list looks pretty complete.  Trophies are optional and you can always add them later so don't stress on those.  Not sure what the "frot panel" is unless you mean a loin cloth?

Not too shabby of a list there vod,

For ammo pouches, I have some you can have for cheap... they are on my sales thread, but if you're in the vanity area, then i can get em to you free and cheaper than listed on my sales thread.

as for weapons, I've got a DL-44 thats missing a flash hider... should be a super easy mod. something to at least get you buy until your grand idea for a weapon comes through :)

haha yes.. loin cloth. don't worry.. gardengeek and tylek already made fun of me for that one :D

also for PAX, we're gonna cheat with the j2p from amazon. i know you said it was a lot of work but i'm thinking a quick sand and paintjob will make them wearable for PAX and then afterwards we can focus on making proper official buckets.
we're also cheating and getting blasters.. same thing, quick paint job then we can make proper weapons later on.

also.. my mom was making a flak vest for me and then tylek comes over and shows off his beautiful one and she's like 'oh.. that's easier to make' haha. but we're keeping it as is for now and then she'll make a better one later. lol

Your strategy for pax mirrors mine for fan expo, it works, and bonus! Once you redo the parts you have stunt armor for filming!

Beautiful pup!

and..

you know..

the rest of the stuff too ;)

The vest looks cool other than the obvious sizing issues, and the gaunts came out great.

if you have any paint on the backside of the armor, make sure to sand it off so the screws stay on permanently.

I'm thinking chicago screws as well... waiting to do vest and plate mounting until next armor party... I'm scared sheebless of messing it up...
