21st May 2012: Upgrades There's a Street Fighter x Tekken group at Expo this Sunday, so by request I am bringing Cammy out again. However I have made (and am still making) improvements to it.
First up, I've finally converted the leotard to a proper thong instead of half-assing it (pun intended). I'll be self-conscious but accurate. I may wear two pairs of tights just to be safe.
Second, new tights. The old ones got a run in them, and I was never totally happy with the camo anyway. I've gone for a much streakier look, taking SFIV as my inspiration. I'm much happier with it, it's still not perfect but I think it looks much more like it would in real life.
Third, new wig. The old wig was not good quality, had a crappy fringe I always had to hide under the beret, and was a bit too platinum for my taste. The new wig is a darker blonde - it's darker than I really wanted, but choice in that length was VERY limited. It's quite a nice natural colour though and camera flash should lighten it up a bit. The pigtails are much smoother as it's far better quality, and the front streak should look better too. If I get time I'll add some clips in so I can do good poses without worrying about it falling off.
Fourth, scar. Previously I've just painted the scar on with acrylics, which was fine for a cartoony sort of look, but I want something a bit more natural. I've bought some rigid collodion, which is a theatrical scarring liquid that pinches the skin to look like scar tissue.
Depending on how much time I have, I will also attempt to improve the leotard badge, make the beret badge, and make the boot toppers.
