wristbands progress (Posted 8th January 2012)
so, as the pic shows I've got some, made from a cheap fancy dress bullet belt, I'm using the Avengers film (well, the trailer anyways) as reference instead of Ironman 2, as the wristbands in that are actually bullets.
need to do (Posted 2nd November 2011)
so, I need to make her wristbands but I also need to add the zip that's on her right thigh to the suit. I also need to re-make the waist belt and holster as the ones that came with it are damaging the suit =[
I've had a new idea has to how I can make the wristbands; get some small dowel and some elastic thread/cord and do it that way.
I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to sew the zip onto the thigh of the suit as I have no sewing skills what so ever! I might beg for help nearer the time of my wanting to wear it.
I also need to buy the wig.
With the belts, I'm going to use black waistband elastic strap stuff and a quick release buckle to make the waist belt, and for the holster belt I'm going to get some canvas belt webbing and another quick release buckle, as well as a cheap tomb raider holster (pic) and chop that up so I have the leg holster bit.
And the last thing will be the gun. what I want to do is buy a cheap gun that looks close enough to the one she has and gut it; I'm going to completely strip all the parts from it so its super light and leave it as a shell with just the trigger.
anyway, I'm planning on getting this costume done for Feb so I can wear it to Midlands MCM.
holster belt (Posted 12th October 2011)
so, looking at the pictures, the waist belt is completely right, however the holster belt isn't. the 2 main problems are that its on the wrong leg (she's lefty like me! yay!) and there's no pouches. swapping it to the correct leg should be easy but I gotta make the pouches as there aren't any ready to buy ones that're small enough.
wrist thingys (Posted 8th October 2011)
well, I was trying to figure out how I was going to do those things for a few days now when I finally came up with something.
