Final piece details (Posted 31st May 2014)

Final 3D printed parts by Steve included a set of full blades and a set of broken ones, that I added blood splashes too (needs more next time) and the blade clips that attach the blades into the hilts themselves.
The blade clips had small round magnets added to them that connecting to ones inside the hilt slit. The blades themselves were glued into the clips
permanently.
x6 faux blade clips were glued to the inside edge of the box ends, leaving the outside compartment of each box free to slide the full blades into.

Sheath and Gas Cylinder- painted (Posted 21st May 2014)

Sheath boxes/cannisters painted and detailed.

Painting progress (Posted 17th May 2014)

The small parts are finished, the boxes still need detail.
First I primed, then used silver/gunmetal with brown added to the grapple hook deployers, hilt grips, sides of the back pieces and a terracotta shade added to the side sections of the back cylinders.
Shading/weathering detail was added to all pieces. I used a scalpel to etch in the criss cross detail to the hilt grips.
Chrome paint was used on the gas cylinders and the main body of the box will have a light coating of beige once finished to match references.

Gear connected (Posted 17th May 2014)

The boxes connect with magnets to an extra holster part I added, holding the weight off the waist belt. Clear straps are used on the belt to hold the boxes at the middle.
The back piece connects with magnets to the harness.
The rods slot into joints attached to the back piece to a joint connected to the side of the boxes.

wig styled (Posted 25th March 2014)

I pinned the remaining hair into the nape of the wig, secured the hair bun clip with a bobby pin to prevent it from dropping and feathered out the end's of the bun.

Hair bun (Posted 25th March 2014)

I ended up trimming a really long wig that had the correct style of fringe to the nape and making a hair bun from the wefts left over. I knotted the wefts into a lose bun shape, stitching it into place so that it doesn't pull loose.
I sewed a clear hair grip into the back that attaches itself to the weft's inside the main part of the wig.

Sheath and Gas Cylinder- progress (Posted 13th March 2014)

x2 sets complete - now to add the connecting parts.

Sheath and Gas Cylinder- progress (Posted 23rd February 2014)

The outer shell and divided compartments inside the box were made from foam board and in held in place with small tacks whilst the wood glue set.
Plastazote foam was used to line the inside for extra support.
Shallow faux compartments will hold three dummy blade ends and a full sized compartment on the outer side for a single blade (all to be 3D printed).
Postal tubes were used for the cannisters with one half of a clear plastic ball on the end, the nozzle was a modified plastic t pipe.
More pieces of foam board were used for the brackets around the box and cannister, which still needs to be finished here.
Next will be making the sliding connectors that will connect the suspension brackets between the boxes and the core back piece and to the legs.

Cord connectors (Posted 15th February 2014)

dc connectors will be used to connect the cord to the main 3DMG pieces for easy transport and storage.

Back piece - arms (Posted 15th February 2014)

The arms that will hold the grapple hook deployers - attached to the the back piece and the rod underneath that will connect to the suspension brackets for the boxes.

Back piece - arm prorgress (Posted 15th February 2014)

To make the arms that attach to the back piece and fit around the waist - a paper template was made first before making them from foam sandwiched between layers of worbla.
The rods that help thread the cord through the arms were made from plastic dowling encased in clear plastic tubing. The function isn't needed but the cord does roll over these rods when it is threaded through the arms.
The arms were heat formed and attach to the main back piece at the sides via a small plastic bolt, with the cord pushed into an opening underneath.
This was made to be detachable for easy transport and storage.
Plastic dowling was attached to the underside of the back piece - this will help connect the suspension brackets that hold up the boxes.

Boots detail (Posted 15th February 2014)

Leather cord was added to the top of the boots.

Finished skirt with harness (Posted 25th January 2014)

Finished skirt.

Skirt progress (Posted 25th January 2014)

I used faux leatherette stretch fabric, I glued this together as the texture and finish wouldn't go through my machine. Made a paper pattern first, added a narrow waistband and pleats either end beneath it.
Finished with Velcro to wrap it around.

Detail - Back piece (Posted 11th January 2014)

Need to add the square back plates next, that will help attach it to the harness - possible 3D printed.
For easy transport, I'm making it so that the centre plate of this can be removed from the square back plates - and the arms that will hold the grapple hook gun's (around the waist) will also be removable.

3DMG - Back piece progress (Posted 11th January 2014)

I researched a load of tutorials to get an idea on different process. I used various sketches to break down the basic shapes and components and researched materials and parts I needed.
I mostly ended up using the official guidebook diagrams for reference.

The basics:
I paper templates for the individual pieces (as I'm making two set's of 3D gear at once)
I used full rolls of sellotape as the base for the cylinders and a plastic dowelling in the centre.
I used 5mm foam board, reinforced with worbla - particularly to cover the foam board edges.
I made a 'bridge' to fix the two sides of the back pieces together in the middle.
Measuring against the harness back part - I made a centre plate of worbla that the centre piece sits on.
I used small stud's for the detail.

I'm planning to add an in depth tutorial on my facebook page.

Military Police Jacket (Posted 30th November 2013)

I carefully removed the edges of the original patch to attach the new ones on top. The smaller patches fitted over the old ones without having to remove anything first.

Harness (Posted 17th November 2013)

I bought this and I'm very glad I did! It took me a while to figure it out even with English instructions I found online. Trimmed the straps under the arms and the long one's on the leg part, that fasten at the hip - so that the piece's that fasten around the belts on the side of the waist hides the ends.
This was a size Small, I know the hood is tucked in, I just wanted to show the harness better.

Survey Corps cloak/MP Jacket (Posted 16th October 2013)

I really wanted a cloak just for myself, but it will be good for photo's masquerading as a Survey Corps member.
Also the MP version of the jacket, patches yet to be added.

Boots (Posted 11th October 2013)

Brown boots.

Jodphurs (Posted 4th October 2013)

Decided to go with jodphurs (really comfy!) instead of leggings, the front zip pocket will be hidden by the brown wrap part.

Military Police patches (Posted 14th September 2013)

Patches for second jacket.

Ring (Posted 10th September 2013)

This was a 3D print commission.

Hoodie (Posted 10th September 2013)

Easily done.

Trainee jacket (Posted 8th September 2013)

Embroidered patches added. Will be getting some Jodphurs to replace the jeggings.

Jacket alterations (Posted 8th September 2013)

Bought a jacket and added embroidered Trainee patches, carefully removing some edges of the original design with acetone and some patience so that the new patches hide it.
Buttons were changed over as as the epaulette ones looked too large for my liking.
Will be doing the same for a Military Police jacket.
