So, I've spent the last couple of days working on the blueprint for this build. I figured it would be much easier to work on if I had something like this "template".
I think it has turned out super well, I'm very pleased with it, though it took a little bit of work to go through a few different reference images to get the right perspective.
My plan for the images (to save time, as it is limited!) like the label and dog image on the mug, is to print this onto something sticky that I can cut out and transfer directly onto the gun. I might have a go at painting them on if all fails me but we will see how it goes.
I have also now ordered all the pieces I will need for the weapon and tank, as well as paint, wig etc. I will make a separate entry on all this when it has arrived, to show in more detail the materials and tools I'll be using, and I have a previous journal entry with an image of the costume "so far".
I'm super duper excited for the con at the end of the Month and have my plane tickets and hotel all booked. I can only hope I'm done in time, between waiting for deliveries and working!
PS: If you would like a copy of the blueprint for personal use, please don't hesitate to contact me on Twitter (xoAilune) or on CI.
