thankyou! i'm excited/terrified about it in equal measure. loving all the hard work making the costume, its all the hard work at the gym that terrifies me! x

Can't wait to see this finished! And I can sympathize about the gym thing... o_O Still, end result is worth it, mmhmm. ;)

Boots progress

Using the 'wet and dry' is taking a long time but I know its worth the 'leg work' if i want a good finish on them. I've just bought my plastic primer paint which i'll add once the boots are totally sanded, my purple and white spray and then my clear gloss top coat. cannot WAIT to get them done!

Boots have arrived! YES!

Order my boots on monday and they arrived yesterday - BRILLIANT. Tried them on and they're a great fit and more flexible than i thought so movement shouldn't be too restricted. Got some wet and dry sandpaper for use on cars to remove all surface gloss so that plastic spray paints will work on them.

Luckily the shoes are rear entry, which means i can happily mod-away at the front of the boots and know that i will still easily be able to remove them without damage.

Can't wait to get them sorted :-D

First hurdles...

Made the mod roc cast of my chest for the chest piece but can't cast it or make my foam structure from it yet until the end of this month. Awaiting my new budget at school so i can pay order sculpture foam and more plastic/mod roc.

I have ordered my purple bodysuit which arrived last week. A little snug but I'm sure it'll fit by the time the rest of the stuff is done, its good motivation for my gym sessions if nothing else.

Been reading up on techniques for prepping/spraying plastic so i'm going to go ahead with my ski boot idea for the shoes. found an ex-ski rental shop on ebay that's selling off white boots in various sizes. So i've reserved some and will be them on friday once i've been paid.
