|An idea I've been toying with for a while now. Mainly putting this up so I can look in horror at how much I've already spent buying things for it to encourage me to make a start|
In the end I used a bodysuit for the siren markings (I hate body paint) and cut up some old trousers for the chaps. The only thing I really had to make from scratch was the jacket.
My hopes are to make this, get some good photos and wear it a bit, then ruin it by turning it into the Borderlands 2 'Firehawk' outfit ^_^
Post-expo (Posted 2nd June 2013)
Managed to get both my Lilith and my partner's Mordecai finished in time for expo. In the end I had to wear my back-up wig, so I'm hoping to do another photoshoot with the proper wig at some point.
Outfit finished (Posted 15th April 2013)
Finally got on and finished this outfit today - painted the weapon thingy, put the straps on the leg guards, and painted the bodysuit. The bodysuit was a killer - it took a few hours to map and paint her tattoos, but I'm happy enough with how they've come out. The stomach area is wrong, and a lot of it will be hidden under clothing 'till I do the Borderlands 2 version, but it's still better than having to apply bodypaint each time I want to wear it. I also got a lot of weathering done.
Now I just have to decide whether I want a gun, and if so what...
The only bit I may need to beg people for help with is the wig - after a lot of rinsing the sharpie ink is still coming off :( Worst to the woart I suppose I'll have a pink forehead all day but it'd be nice if I can get it sorted.
Buttless chaps (Posted 8th April 2013)
Well, looks like I'll be going to May MCM this year, so I'm going to try to finish this in time (and also make Matt a Mordecai outfit) - erk.
Tops (Posted 22nd November 2012)
As I've been ill, I thought I'd start with the easy bit - modifying the two tops I bought off've ebay. I reckon it's gone pretty well, though I accidently cut the pink top too short - it's about an inch longer than where it meets the yellow top's zip. This won't be a problem till I try to do her Borderlands 2 outfit though, so I don't have to change it immidiately.
