9th March 2014: Makeup test Grimas paint, dark green eyeliner for countouring, black and grey eyeliners for details, matt green eyeshadow for highlights and faux earplugs! :')
Dried pretty nicely so not sure if I need powder to set it or not!
9th March 2014: Shoulder armour Had to strip off the paint as it wasn't drying and I worried about the material being ruined. Repainted it with matt emulsion and it seems to have done the trick! Will add details on again once the base layer finishes drying.
8th March 2014: Wings detail Added some more tones and highlighted the veins running along the wings in yellow-greens, which makes them look better when the light does shine through them too and makes them look more natural.
6th March 2014: Gloves wip 2 Finished gloves with worbla claw tips. Will be painted and although they sit well on my fingertips, I'll add a bit of glue to keep them secure!
5th March 2014: Painting the wings Coated the plastic and latex in special spray paint and then painted on top in various shades of green, starting to pick out the details of the 'veins' and ridges and claws. :) [EDIT: The spray paint didn't work on the latex, despite being advised it would be fine. OTL]
4th March 2014: Gloves base The base of the gloves! The point meets up with the pattern of the sleeves. Tomorrow I'll be making polymorph or latex claw/fingertips before I start painting everything. c:
28th February 2014: Shoulder armour Three layers of latex that make up Hulkling's shoulder armour. Yet to be finished painting but this gives an idea of the pattern and shape/flexibility of them. They're sewn together and will be attached to the muscle suit by velcro and disguise the wing harness! :)
24th February 2014: Wing details Using 3D paint and latex to add in the details and emphasise where the bone structure is inside. :)
23rd February 2014: Wings base Plastic over wire with latex bone/claws at the top. Going to put more plastic and 3D over the top before painting! :)
21st February 2014: Wings frame done! So much bigger than I expected, but they hold the weight of the plastic! \o/
20th February 2014: Gloves wip Gloves mostly sewn up! They overlap with the lines/folds I put into the sleeves and I'm going to make some polymorph/latex/foam claws of some description to go over the first two knuckles. :)
20th February 2014: Wings wip again This is the relaxed position I was on about. With the skin over them, they curve in and behave more naturally, but this gives you an idea! :D
20th February 2014: Wings wip See below for more details!
20th February 2014: Wing harness and wire work Harness and base shape of the wings done! Got some shaping and tidying up to do tomorrow before I put on the final bits of wire and add the 'skin'. The width of these at full size will be a little longer than my arm span and they'll also fold back behind me in a more relaxed position too. :)
The base of the harness is a plastic hinge so they can be flapped and they on elastic fastenings which hide beneath Teddy's shirt and the shoulder armour (which I've yet to finish!)
They're as big as I can get away with for a con/without them drooping really!
10th February 2014: Arms base 2 Another of the arms base!
10th February 2014: Arms base Seams fixed in place with glorious wonder web! Going to put glue, paint and plastic/latex over the top to help make them more realistic and less plush looking! :)
9th February 2014: Starting the arms! Slowly creating the folds in the sleeves/arms for green Hulkling! I'm folding the fabric to make the shapes and underneath will be a sort of muscle suit style padding to build shape. I'll be painting all the fabric up to make it realistic.
I'll also be adding on polymorph for the shoulder armour pieces and gloves with polymorph claws that go up to my forearms but will still be detachable. :]
Later on I'll be doing some latex wings and experimenting with makeup/face paint too! :D
29th June 2013: wippity wip! See I am going to get it done in time! XD It's a pretty basic job. Just getting the zip in at the side and sewing down the folds on the back of the knees. The magenta material feels lovely but it's a ***** to sew. OTL
14th June 2013: Everything purchased \o/ What it says in the title. Wig on its way, fabric and zips purchased, wings in progress (that'll be chibi ones this time around though! ;p). WIP photos soon.
