12th July 2013: Spiiiiine 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!
11th July 2013: Boots! YES boots are done! I'm really happy they're out of the way as they were the bit I was dreading most! Woohooooo!
6th July 2013: Wig! 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!
2nd July 2013: Belt! 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!
2nd July 2013: Shotgun shells I got the shotgun shells done! YES. I hope to make some more progress with the belt today, maybe even finish it! *crosses fingers*
25th June 2013: Gloves! Did the vinyl-y bits on the gloves! I'll need to wear thin black gloves underneath as these are fingerless though!
18th June 2013: Forearms happy with how these are going!
18th June 2013: Front! Added a few more little details to the front, I think it's done now! Yay!
18th June 2013: Back progress! Made some good progress with the back, STILL not 100% done but I think about 90% now!
9th June 2013: Torso armour progress Very pleased with how this is going!
9th June 2013: beginnings of forearm guards yaayyy so I vinyled them up and painted them etc, still need to put straps on them and everything but they're going goooooood!
6th June 2013: front vinyl-y bits on the torso! 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!
23rd May 2013: Side...pouch...thingys.. 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!
23rd May 2013: Beginnings of boots started on the boots, they're fairly sturdy. Still need a loooot of detail bit a good start I think!
23rd May 2013: Painting begins! Oooh scary! Okay I've painted the front and the back, still needs a lot of detail but it's getting there!
21st May 2013: Undersuit progress! 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!
14th May 2013: Belt beginnings! 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!
5th May 2013: details.. few of the chest details!
5th May 2013: torso progress! 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!
27th April 2013: Lights, camera, act- wait, what? pretty blue lights for the front and back :D
22nd April 2013: Back progress.. 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.
21st April 2013: front progress.. Some progress on the front! I'm quite happy with it :D
20th April 2013: Armour base layer Ahhh I have the base layer done! Cut some trianges in strategic places to give it the right shape (:
