Progress Journal

25th October 2012

FINISHED :D

I added some velcro and elastic to parts of it so that I could get it on and off :)

It's a little bit dodgy in some areas, the plastic didn't fit together as perfectly as the paper did. I'm guna fix it up in the near futureeeee.

25th October 2012

Assembling the pieces

I attached the pieces with super strength araldite glue and strips of leather behind the seams, but this wasn't secure enough so I also bound some string around parts of it and painted it gold (looks a bit dodgy, but I'm working on a securer method as we speak! haha)

By the way: some of it hasnt been painted yet, I WAS IMPATIENT, OKAY? :p

24th October 2012

The pieces have finally arrived!

(Top Left) - 30 flat pieces of clear acrylic plastic. Now let's get this made! :D

(Top Right) - I used a heat gun to shape the pieces to fit my body. I heated them over domes of wood and bits of curved metal.

(Bottom Left) - I sprayed the pieces with a base coat of black matte spray paint. I would have used a plastic primer first, but I forgot to get it and these came so late in the post I didn't have time to go to the shop :(

(Bottom Right) - I then sprayed the pieces gold. It was cool coz I originally used a cheapo gold spray paint which was terrible, so I switched to the good metallic stuff, but there was some kind of reaction (with the solvents or something) when I sprayed the new gold on it and it came out with tiny bubbles here and there, but then suddenly it stopped looking like gold plastic and looked more textured like hammered metal :D I was like WOOOO!! haha :p

20th October 2012

Paper pattern for the chest plate

I made a paper pattern of the chest plate and scanned the pieces in separately to my computer, and in Photoshop I drew on the patterns in black and white and sent it off to a man with a lasercutter to be cut in clear acrylic.

19th October 2012

More painting of the satin

I know this isn't the exact pattern it's supposed to be but I'm sticking with it :p

19th October 2012

Weathering the leather

I weathered it with a lot of sand paper and a blow torch. Might make it dirtier though, I think it needs it.

YES! A BLOW TORCH! Although it was a miniature cordless one because I couldn't do it inside of the workshop incase the fire alarm went off (it smelt like a BBQ :p)

23rd July 2012

Leather for the skirt underneath

Sand coloured leather has arrived! (the photo makes the colour look a bit different)

18th July 2012

Leather for the skirt underneath

I've bought some leather for the skirt that she wears underneath this. Got some sand coloured leather coming in the post for the top of the skirt! :D

15th July 2012

Painting the fabric

I'm hand painting these shapes on. IT'S TAKING FOR. EVER.

It's a mixture of turquoise, fluorescent blue and white fabric paint. I think it's a bit too light though... although in some screenshots it is actually quite a pale blue.. AHH. I'll see how it goes.

Silk duchess satin

This is a kind of stiff silk, IT'S SO NICE <3
I'm going to paint on the blue pattern with fabric paint
