Alright, so I didn't mean to wind up doing so many Chris Hemsworth costumes, but I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS FILM AND F1 AND SEVENTIES AND RON HOWARD THIS FILM IS GONNA BE EPIC AND I JUST NEED A RACE SUIT COSPLAY ALREADY. #fanboyin'

I have an old helmet that isn't road reliable anymore, so I'm going to be stripping it down and painting it for this. :]

The race suit is an OMP one which I've sewn onto and I've painted the patches and helmet freehand.

Looking good so far~ The Union Jack looked like a pain to paint XD

Progress Journal

Helmet 2 (Posted 3rd August 2013)

Side view! It was horrible trying to keep things in line while working with the curve of the helmet. XD I did a lot of measuring before I started painting on. :')

Helmet 1 (Posted 3rd August 2013)

All done! This was an absolute pain to do so neatly and it's not perfect, but I'm quite pleased with the result. :)

Helmet base coat (Posted 3rd August 2013)

I removed the stickers and sanded it down, sprayed it with a nice gloss black and have measured and marked out where I need to paint. The base coat is on now and I'm painting it on with acrylics.

Patches (Posted 3rd August 2013)

All painted free hand onto felt with acrylic paint. It was more difficult than it looks! XD

Helmet and stuff \o/ (Posted 9th July 2013)

Not road reliable anymore, so it's going to be sanded/stripped and painted in a more matt black. It's currently kind of sparkly <_< and there's some stickers on it that need removing. Once it's all black, I need to paint on his name on either side and the coloured stripes (which are the colours of his old school, I do believe!) Then there's a Union Jack with his name and a Bell helmet logo too.

I've also got references for the many, many patches, which I'll be making myself as they can get quite pricy and the ones I want are seventies ones and quite obscure versions to buy. >__<
