Alas I saw you at a distance only at Expo and was unable to run in heals. It looked fabulous though! I hope you weren't too hot.

Progress Journal

2nd May 2012

F*****G BIAS BINDING!

Totally underestimated the amount of 25mm bias binding I would need. Plenty of 12mm, obviously! Finished the grey panelling and the collar, just need to do some belt loops and the three bars across the chest and the USTREAM transfer and the fabric is done. Then it's the finishing touches to the accessories and i'm ready to crack on with the backback!

23rd April 2012

Tunic taking shape

Got no dark grey fabric to do the chest panel and collar, but i've finished the basics of the tunic, as well as the belt. Not I just need to do the grey panels, collar, and yellow piping around the hems and the fabric side of this is complete. This pic is just because I got a little excited and wanted to see what some of the pieces looked like together. The jumper also needs its shoulder pads, because i'm a slip of a thing!

16th April 2012

Getting the pieces out of the way

The boots and the arm bracers are done, and the shoulder pads are drying, so only the tassling needs adding to those. After adding the decals to the helmet, all that remains is the belt and i'll have the last month free to focus on the tunic, which is what I wanted.

4th April 2012

Helmet done (well, the Grey bits!)

Enamal paint sucks. Too shiny metallic. Settled on a really simple grey base coat and some PVA washes to gloss it up a little. Blue jewels, dorsal fin, ears and yellow visor decals are on their way.

Oh and those loose £5 notes? It's because i'm gangstarrr. Brap!

10th March 2012

Various bits and pieces get some attention

The leg kneeepads and boot coverings also get a paint job, so did the arm bracers, but I am going to redo them after deciding they suck!

1st March 2012

In the dark dark room........

Despite my rather moody lighting conditions and even darker metal music playing throughout, i've finished the clay, isopon and craft foam sections. Now for a PVA glue wash and a paint job

15th February 2012

Basic shape complete

Finally got the base sorted so I can tackle the panelling

21st January 2012

If it IS broke.....fix it!

After deliberation I decided that the helmet was just not proportionaly accurate, and I could either soldier on and make the best of it, or make a new one. I decided on the latter, and I decided that the helmets should know exactly what i think of them (I was bored on my day off!)

7th November 2011

A nice start

So far i've made a start to the helmet using old cardboard salvaged from a recycle bin outside out local shop. Got a basic structure ready to build off once i've modroc'd the lot to give it a little rigidity.
