Journal

Spiiiiine (Posted 12th July 2013)

Made the spine for the undersuit and sewed it in, made from foam, carved out all the bits with a Stanley knife then sealed and painted - phew!

Boots! (Posted 11th July 2013)

YES boots are done! I'm really happy they're out of the way as they were the bit I was dreading most! Woohooooo!

Wig! (Posted 6th July 2013)

Wig came today, had to cut into it quite a lot and the ponytail was really heavy so I had to cut that a fair bit too. Not exactly how I'd like it but I think it will do!

Belt! (Posted 2nd July 2013)

So today I just decided to go at it with the belt, I got it done! Yessss, but still have a lot to do. Progress is shaping up nicely though!

Shotgun shells (Posted 2nd July 2013)

I got the shotgun shells done! YES. I hope to make some more progress with the belt today, maybe even finish it! *crosses fingers*

Gloves! (Posted 25th June 2013)

Did the vinyl-y bits on the gloves! I'll need to wear thin black gloves underneath as these are fingerless though!

Forearms (Posted 18th June 2013)

happy with how these are going!

Front! (Posted 18th June 2013)

Added a few more little details to the front, I think it's done now! Yay!

Back progress! (Posted 18th June 2013)

Made some good progress with the back, STILL not 100% done but I think about 90% now!

Torso armour progress (Posted 9th June 2013)

Very pleased with how this is going!

beginnings of forearm guards (Posted 9th June 2013)

yaayyy so I vinyled them up and painted them etc, still need to put straps on them and everything but they're going goooooood!

front vinyl-y bits on the torso! (Posted 6th June 2013)

did the blue vinyl bits on the front, I had to dirty it up a lot with shoe polish because the original shade of blue the vinyl was was faaaaaar too bright!

Side...pouch...thingys.. (Posted 23rd May 2013)

I swear every Gear has these and I still don't know what they're called :| They're to go under the belt on my hips anyway, here they are!

Beginnings of boots (Posted 23rd May 2013)

started on the boots, they're fairly sturdy. Still need a loooot of detail bit a good start I think!

Painting begins! (Posted 23rd May 2013)

Oooh scary! Okay I've painted the front and the back, still needs a lot of detail but it's getting there!

Undersuit progress! (Posted 21st May 2013)

I decided to go the way of a top and bottoms rather than a catsuit for the undersuit, that way I can pee whenever I want! YES!=P so I put a zipper in the top this morning, still needs some more detail but alright so far!

Belt beginnings! (Posted 14th May 2013)

the beginnings of the belt! not too bad I think! Unlike Anya, I decided to make Sofia's belt completely from scratch instead of using an existing one. Think it went okay!

details.. (Posted 5th May 2013)

few of the chest details!

torso progress! (Posted 5th May 2013)

got the torso looking more like I wanted it to, but some buckles in the sides so I can get it on and off :D Not too worried about the different colours of foam because when it's sealed/painted it'll all be the same colour anyway!

Lights, camera, act- wait, what? (Posted 27th April 2013)

pretty blue lights for the front and back :D

Back progress.. (Posted 22nd April 2013)

BLAH WHAT IS IT WITH GEARS AND THEIR UNNECESSARILY DIFFICULT BACK PLATES? -_____- anyway, this is what I got so far, no detail or anything yet though.

front progress.. (Posted 21st April 2013)

Some progress on the front! I'm quite happy with it :D

Armour base layer (Posted 20th April 2013)

Ahhh I have the base layer done! Cut some trianges in strategic places to give it the right shape (:

paper templates (Posted 20th April 2013)

paper templates - always a good starting point!
