Complete-ish, I think. The headpiece still needs quite a lot of work though.

Headpiece WIP 3 (Posted 6th September 2014)

LEDs are wired up now and I've been working on the greebles. I had intended to bevel the angle between the main piece and the side-plate but I kind of like the way it looks 'as is'.

Headpiece WIP 2 (Posted 16th August 2014)

Getting there, needs cleaning up and a coat or two of paint. I haven't fixed the lens in yet as I'm waiting for some LEDs to arrive.

Headpiece WIP 1 (Posted 14th August 2014)

Finally got around to working on this again. I mocked up a cardboard version, played about with it until it fitted properly and used it as a template to cut out some PU board.
Top pic shows it taped up and fixed in place while the solvent welding sets with epoxy added to the joints for a bit more rigidity, below is the morning after. The compound curve didn't quite work as I intended but I can live with it. Next stage, make spacer blocks and fix it to the headband.

Latex applique work. (Posted 30th May 2013)

The suit has arrived and I'm really pleased with how the customisation has turned out. Ok, the lower line of the logo is in a in bold version of the artwork font but I'd been warned that the original version was likely to be too fine for laser-cut applique anyway so I'd been expecting that. The alternative was to print the logo onto the latex which would have meant having a box around it and I really didn't want that. I love how the 'iris diaphragm' part of the logo works too, very happy all round :)

A cute white bob :)

Aperture logo (Posted 15th March 2013)

I've made up some clean artwork and emailed it off to be appliqueed onto a white catsuit. T'm told there's around six weeks wait on custom work so I've plenty of time to start on the headpiece.

Starting. (Posted 10th March 2013)

I'm probably going use these boots rather than the leather ones you can see in some of my other pics as I think the rubber looks more 'high-tech'. They don't have zips which makes them a real pain to pull on but once you're wearing them they have a nice sleek fit and are surprisingly comfortable.
