Long time lurker, here. I've been working slowly on a femalr pred costume for myself, and am finally @ the point where I've made enough progress to share.

The armour was made with templates from VinMan (TY!), the bio is from Mysteria. The rest is from scratch. I was inspired by a few of the female preds I've seen here on the forum, but then took it in my own direction.

I'm working @ being a human huntress, so i won't be using a mask, and I've used natural hair instead of dreads due to this. Also, I won't have a "crazy" skin... I'll be using a flesh-coloured lycra body suit, lightly painted for texture, with a body net.

It's a good looking suit you got there, is the armor made out of resin?
Awesome paintjob and thanks for sharing, sharing is caring, and gives the rest of us more ideas :)

Thanks, guys!

The armour is made out of Sintra. I got that tip from VinMan, as well. It is ultra easy to cut and mold, and looks fantastic once painted.

Once I get some progress on the body suit, I'll post some pics of me wearing the suit.

I'm also working on a retractable spear that can fold down to about 14 inches, which will attach to a thigh platform

I suppose Machiko was a jumping off point for this...though ive seen her done alot already. I wanted that same look, but with my own spin on it.

More pics to follow as I make progress :)

Thanks again, everyone.

The paintup turned out easier than I had thought it would be. I coated all pieces first in black. Then, I lightly sponged on some "hammered metal" silver; not taking much care with it. I wanted a random sponge pattern of the silver. I didn't cover the black completely... Instead, I let areas of it remain.

Then, while it was still tacky, I misted over all with silver. This gave a sort of "flecked" effect, ad the black areas where now dusted with silver, and the sponged areas looked like metal flakes.

Next, I sponged on some hammered metal bronze, in the same manner ad the silver.

Finally, as this layer was tacky, I dprayed VERY lightly with some black; more like small splotches. This gave me a pitted metal effect.

I dry-brushed some black lightly around details for depth, then coated it all with a clear laquer.

It looks awesome. I love the hammered paints. They add a dimension of "metallic" very well. :)

Yes, they do. It made this part of the project so much easier in terms of providing a realistic metalic look on what is essentially plastic.

I need to get to work now on my gauntlets. They are the only part of the armour left to build.
