To-Do List

Shoulder PauldronHighIn Progress
Main armourHighIn Progress
Sword of OmensMediumComplete
Turtle Neck VestLowPlanned


Pauldron (Posted 30th May 2013)

Just needs some smoothing out.

Greaves (Posted 30th May 2013)

Getting the hand of crafting with foam at this stage.

Thigh Pads, Arm Pad. (Posted 30th May 2013)

And starting the greaves.

Coming together! (Posted 30th May 2013)

The hardest part was sizing this so it all fit together, I probably over complicated it tbh. xD;

Shoulder Pauldron (Posted 30th May 2013)

Making a start.

Belt (Posted 30th May 2013)

Majoritively done..

Bulk Work (Posted 30th May 2013)

Easy stuff so far!

Buffin' Time (Posted 30th May 2013)

First time for everything.

Draft (Posted 30th May 2013)


Armour! (Posted 17th December 2012)

Finally made a start, template testing!

Sword Complete! (Posted 11th December 2012)

So I bought a Tai Chi practice sword, removed the blade, and drilled/filed some holes to fit the original pins for the original blade.

This blade is around double the length than the original so it looks much more to scale than the original blade, which made it look stumpy, and it's made of metal as opposed to plastic.

Brighter LED can also be seen here.

Sword (Posted 30th November 2012)

So lots of bits have arrived an I'm making a start!

Bought the toy sword as I wanted a look at how the mechanism works for the hand guard. After having a look, it's actually rather complex, and rather than pour hours into trying to replicate the design, decided I would just use the toy as a base.
I've disconnected the speaker, and replaced the LED as it was rather dull, and will soon replace the blade aswell as it was rather short. If I can modify the catch to work with the replacement blade is another question!
