I leave my alignment to Fate-whether Light or Dark


« on: May 18, 2019, 09:56:51 PM »

IT HAS BEGUN!

Most of my materials from Amazon came today (including my amazing new dress form which I adjusted to my measurements) and I headed to the fabric store to get some canvas (originally wanted hopsack linen to match Darth Revan, but they didnít have in the right color) and vinyl (the other colors werenít thick enough to detail, so Iím going to be darkening them by hand).

I patterned about a quarter of the front of the breastplate today.

Yup! It's fine for me, but still might be slightly big on some petites. I actually realized after I put the photo up that this doesn't show the actual current state, but meh

Breastplate jigsaw puzzle! Iíve figured out for to do it in two pieces but make it look like 1 continuous without visible connectors! Cheesy

Cool. How long do you figure it will take to put together?

My wife recognized the armor. She just finished KotOR last night.

Awesome! Iíve been doing a play through for the cut ending, but I think I need to start over since getting my new computer. Glad she recognized it though! Ambitious as it is, I would like to finish within a month so I can bring it to a con Iíll posdibly be attending in June. Raphael Sberge is going to be there, and it would be awesome to be able to take pics in it with him (thatís the voice actor for Carth Onasi).

Have a few more layers done. The front is almost completely patterned (the rest of the belt is actually part of the back)

Wow LR, you never cease to amaze me with your creativity!

If the patterns are indicative of what's to come, I know that you'll have yet another fantastic ensemble  Smiley

Thanks, Dutch! TBH, I'm less concerned about how the breastplate will come out than the actual robes themselves. I'm pretty awful with a sewing machine, and typically hand sew everything, but that's just not practical for a fabric project this large. I'm also still in need of patterning paper to pattern the robes and hood (which is a whole other monster to try to pattern a hood) since the hard poster board doesn't really work for that purpose and isn't large enough).

I finally found some good reference photos of the back, so I can start patterning accordingly. I'm probably going to have to experiment quite a bit with the hand guards though, since engraving is difficult on vinyl and I'd rather not shell out on real leather for what is essentially a prototype.

Progress! All thatís left pretty much is the belt and a couple of side panels. New paint dried a little shinny, but Iím sure it can be dulled
