Though I think I'll leave my wings and Buster Sword at home LMAO

Lol best see you for this as well. I'm doing this because making a SeeD uniform will be hard. Can't put myself through that at second year. SOLDIER on the other hand won't be. Will make a slight variation on it though. Glad to see you're coming SJ

Haven't styled the Wig at all dude. I just put it on to see the effect but trust me, I'll be doing Major Styling on it.

@Turk- Thank you ^_^

I was looking at your progress on my phone last night, and when I got to the picture of Angeal's braces on your sewing machine, I could've sworn they were leather restraints for a minute! Bit of good ol' SOLDIER kink for you there. I did look properly this morning though, when I was actually awake and apparently not blind, and I just…all the fangirl squealing! This is awesome, J, absolutely awesome.

BUSTERSWORD ARRGH! V.5 (Posted 21st October 2012)

Just painting it up and adding Graining texture to it

BUSTERSWORD YAY V.4 (Posted 16th October 2012)

So now their attached with their markers, there's not much left to do, except the hilt

BUSTERSWORD ARGH! V.3 (Posted 16th October 2012)

So I managed to sculpt the wing sections and just waited for them to dry

BUSTERSWORD ARRGH! V.3 (Posted 10th October 2012)

So These are the various stages of finishing before priming the sword

BUSTERSWORD ARRRGH! V.2 (Posted 9th October 2012)

So.. The Carving of the top is done, the hilt will be covered in MORE PLASTAZOTE yay! But otherwise here's both sides done... I just thought i'd show you the side that hadn't been done. However I won't put concave shaping into that.. because thats where the rod is

BUSTERSWORD ARRRGHH! V.1 (Posted 9th October 2012)

So I've managed to do the template for the materia Slots so it's going into one and two.. I was thinking of making concave surfaces for it.. but honestly, it's not going to get noticed, however it does need a small dip.. I can't put too much in otherwise it'll compromise the entire structure

TEST! (Posted 7th October 2012)

This is what it looks like on ^_^ Need to Iron some bits on though

BRACERS! YAY! (Posted 7th October 2012)

So I've completed the bracers and now that its been done, I just have to mount the pauldrons on

StrappyTIME! (Posted 7th October 2012)

So just sewn most of the sections for the belt. Did one down the middle and then sewed it on to the larger chunk and top stitched most of it since the dog tracks on the sewing machine wouldn't move the leather along

Pauldrons complete (Posted 7th October 2012)

6-10 layers of watered down PVA
Polyfiller to clean up the cracks/ sanded down as well
3-5 layers of undiluted PVA
3-5 layers of Black Acrylic spraypaint
2-3 layers of Car Lacuqer

Sword Progress ~ (Posted 7th October 2012)

This was taken a while a go but I managed to completely seal the sword layers and now they just require a lot of PVA Sealing to keep it solid.

First Glaze- Pauldrons (Posted 7th October 2012)

They got their fillings for the cracks and open sections, and just covered it with 6-10 layers of watered down PVA with 2-5 layers of straight out PVA Glue.

Then spay painted 3 layers of paint.. with another 3 more to go, 1 pain x2 lacquer.. Will post the finished results at some point

Shoulder Pauldron Test (Posted 26th September 2012)

Well it's attached.. I look like Zack right now lol

Wig test with the Sweater (Posted 26th September 2012)

Not looking too bad right now. It needs obvious styling lol

Pauldron base (Posted 26th September 2012)

I was kinda worred about the shape but having looked at it now, it's not too bad

SOLDIER Belt phase 1 complete! (Posted 26th September 2012)

Ok so A couple of times the machine got stuck in one place and sewed one over the other but otherwise it went will..

WARNING: DO NOT DO THIS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!- it will summon angry neighbours!

SOLDIER Belt phase 1 (Posted 26th September 2012)

Woohoo! Did this whilst Ustreaming to a couple of the Round-Up Lot

Should Pauldron Base (Posted 26th September 2012)

Sweater complete! (Posted 26th September 2012)
