Journal

Twin holster with suit (Posted 20th October 2012)

Finished twin holsters.

Holsters complete (Posted 20th October 2012)

Finished holsters, some detail was added to the main wide strap behind where the gun fits, not really clear here.

Glocks 26s - edit (Posted 20th October 2012)

Added the chrome detail to the top of the glocks.

Holster progress (Posted 20th October 2012)

Thanks to Leadmill's research, a left and right holster were found that fitted the glock 26's. Originally they were Uncle Mikes Kydex swivel holsters, they were taken apart and I only used the main part that holds the pistol.
Using the wrong side of the same suit fabric I sewed up two wide strips for the holsters to attach to, three thin leg straps and four small strips that connected the main holster straps to the belt via press studs.
Two belt loops were made that fitted onto the belt that holds up the holsters, black press studs were added to connect near the top. I used pleather covered foam for the detail underneath, wrapped around the wide strip.
The unsightly holes in the plastic holsters were plugged up using the unused screws that would have fitted them to the swivel paddle. The one holster already had holes to help fit it to the holster and leg strap using the same screws, I used the dremel to add holes in the other holster.
The same metal buckle used for the belt were used for the three leg straps.

Bodysuit complete (Posted 17th October 2012)

Complete suit.

Bodysuit detail (Posted 17th October 2012)

Detail was added to the catsuit using 10mm and 6mm bias tape sewn into place. This was the most time consuming part of the suit as it required hand stitching in places and multiple fittings to get the placement to match correctly. I added detail around the base of the collar, over the back and shoulders, on the forearms and knees.

Belts complete (Posted 14th October 2012)

Added a belt loop to the buckle and used velcro to fasten the waist belt. Now waiting on the holsters whilst I finish adding detail to the bodysuit.

Belt buckle (Posted 14th October 2012)

I created another mould and used resin to make the belt buckle. I plan to add a belt loop to fit it onto the waist belt.

Wrist cuffs (Posted 14th October 2012)

Finally finished casting the bullet shell's, painted them black and added some detail before fixing them onto strips of webbing. They are held into place using velcro.

Suit zipper (Posted 13th October 2012)

I used a 17" zipper for the suit that ended at the waist.

Suit collar (Posted 13th October 2012)

I used a heavy interfacing with the PU fabric to create the stiff collar and added the detail strip using the reverse of the main suit fabric with a lighter interfacing to give it some support. This strip was placed between the main collar pieces before sewing it up.

S.H.I.E.L.D. patches (Posted 13th October 2012)

Using a paper template these were made from thin rubber sheeting in black/grey and carefully sewn onto the sleeves.

Glocks 26s (Posted 12th October 2012)

Painted airsoft pistols.

Utility belt (Posted 7th October 2012)

I used the same PU fabric as the pouches/boots, just the reverse side to make the utility belt. The buckle and pouches were added and it will be adjusted once the bodysuit is complete.

Boots complete (Posted 6th October 2012)

Footwear finished.

Wrist cuff progress (Posted 3rd October 2012)

I needed a quicker way of making the individual bullet shell's she wears as wrist cuffs, so I made one shell first then used a siligum mould and used latex to replicate more. I'll be making another mould to help speed up the process.

Pouches complete (Posted 3rd October 2012)

Finished utility pouches that will fit onto the holster belt.

Holster/belt buckles (Posted 2nd October 2012)

The metal buckles for the holster thigh straps and for the holster belt, sprayed black. These were the closest I could find that matched the references.

Utility pouches (Posted 2nd October 2012)

Progress of the pouches with the paper template, then transferred to foam before adding the faux leather and the disc that will fit inside before detail has been added. I'll be making my own utility belt as the one in the reference is slightly thinner than the standard viper belt.

Pouch progress (Posted 30th September 2012)

I used foam covered with faux leather fabric to create the pouches, one of four that will be attached to the holster belt.

Boots progress (Posted 30th September 2012)

Boots aren't finished here as buckles need to be added to the main straps before fixing them in place.
I removed the original buckles from the boots. I added a piece of faux leather fabric on the outer side to hide some original detail I didn't want to show, this also helped to straighten out the top of the boots on the sides since the one's I'm using had a different shape. I also cut a 'V' shape into the front and back of the boots.
These boots have a side zip on the inside so I added a faux zip to the front and a strip of fabric was sewn over this and around the top edges, keeping the boot together where I had cut into it.
I then added strips of fabric in the back 'V' and the four straps around the main boot, which will have black buckles added to them before they are finally fixed into place. A black press stud was added to the strap near the base of the boot at the front that covers the end of the faux zip.

Bodysuit fabric (Posted 6th September 2012)

I'm planning to use a stretch PU fabric for the bodysuit, again using the basic catsuit pattern I used for other costumes and modifying the design.

Boots, base (Posted 6th September 2012)

These are the wedge boots I'll be using as a base to add the straps and front zipper to.

Gloves (Posted 15th August 2012)

I did some research and Alpinestars Stella Tyla gloves match the source material really well. The cuff will cover up most of the glove logo but I still covered it up with a strip of matching leather and cut off the fingers. Top is what they originally looked like, middle is the reference and bottom is afterwards.

Wig (Posted 15th July 2012)

Wig was trimmed, curls at the back may need taming.
