Alas I saw you at a distance only at Expo and was unable to run in heals. It looked fabulous though! I hope you weren't too hot.

F*****G BIAS BINDING! (Posted 2nd May 2012)

Totally underestimated the amount of 25mm bias binding I would need. Plenty of 12mm, obviously! Finished the grey panelling and the collar, just need to do some belt loops and the three bars across the chest and the USTREAM transfer and the fabric is done. Then it's the finishing touches to the accessories and i'm ready to crack on with the backback!

Tunic taking shape (Posted 23rd April 2012)

Got no dark grey fabric to do the chest panel and collar, but i've finished the basics of the tunic, as well as the belt. Not I just need to do the grey panels, collar, and yellow piping around the hems and the fabric side of this is complete. This pic is just because I got a little excited and wanted to see what some of the pieces looked like together. The jumper also needs its shoulder pads, because i'm a slip of a thing!

Getting the pieces out of the way (Posted 16th April 2012)

The boots and the arm bracers are done, and the shoulder pads are drying, so only the tassling needs adding to those. After adding the decals to the helmet, all that remains is the belt and i'll have the last month free to focus on the tunic, which is what I wanted.

Helmet done (well, the Grey bits!) (Posted 4th April 2012)

Enamal paint sucks. Too shiny metallic. Settled on a really simple grey base coat and some PVA washes to gloss it up a little. Blue jewels, dorsal fin, ears and yellow visor decals are on their way.

Oh and those loose £5 notes? It's because i'm gangstarrr. Brap!

Various bits and pieces get some attention (Posted 11th March 2012)

The leg kneeepads and boot coverings also get a paint job, so did the arm bracers, but I am going to redo them after deciding they suck!

In the dark dark room........ (Posted 2nd March 2012)

Despite my rather moody lighting conditions and even darker metal music playing throughout, i've finished the clay, isopon and craft foam sections. Now for a PVA glue wash and a paint job

Basic shape complete (Posted 16th February 2012)

Finally got the base sorted so I can tackle the panelling

If it IS broke.....fix it! (Posted 21st January 2012)

After deliberation I decided that the helmet was just not proportionaly accurate, and I could either soldier on and make the best of it, or make a new one. I decided on the latter, and I decided that the helmets should know exactly what i think of them (I was bored on my day off!)

A nice start (Posted 7th November 2011)

So far i've made a start to the helmet using old cardboard salvaged from a recycle bin outside out local shop. Got a basic structure ready to build off once i've modroc'd the lot to give it a little rigidity.
