    So, my Son and i going to the Comic Con Germany next year.
    He wants a Star Lord Costume, so i decided to make a Ronan Costume for my self.

    I will update this thread, but not regulary. I have almost a year time so i will take this time and make the Costumes as best i can. AND i will make everything from the scratch. ^^

    I startet with the Blasters and a (puppet sized) test Coat for my Son.
    Here are the parts i have so far.
    Everything from the star lord Costume has to be scaled down, so it fits a 10 year old boy. ^^

    Two days ago i got bored of sanding the blaster and startet the gloves:

    My biggest problem at the moment are GOOD Ronan references from his back.
    Maybe someone can help.

    Here is my version of the TPS-L2 Walkman, downscaled to around 70%.

    I roughly sprayed the Walkman, just to see how the colors on it work.

    Update on the Blaster.
    I make it in parts, mold them and cast them in resin.

    I am really interested in seeing how you tackle the Star-Lord pants when you get to that point in your build.

    Me too. XD
    Pants, Mask and Coat will be the last things i make.
    My Son is 9 and its a real possibility that he grows until next year, so i will push this 3 pieces as far as possible to the end.

    I know, they are not 100% accurate but he will wear these only for some photos we make. ^^

    Gloves look good. I keep considering making my own, but I do the short-jacket build and he doesn't wear them with it, if I recall correctly.

    Soooo, quick Update of the Blasters.
    One is more or less finished. I have to glue it together, fix some paint and some small Things.
    I had big problems with the mold making (leaking silicone molds are a ****ing pain). Beause of this i have to order new resin.

    But here are the Photos:

    How did you attach the leather panels to the glove?

    BTW, everything looks great.

    I sewed everything together.
    I hate gluing lether or fabric, it will come loose but even a ****ty seam will hold almost forever.

    And thx. ^^

    Did you make the entire glove from scratch, or did you attach the panels to existing gloves?

    I used a childrens Work-Glove, cut it, made a new pattern with these parts and sewed it.

    Are those the Skecher Diameter shoes? I can't quite tell.

    I saw those in kid sizes at the Skecher store the other day. Same movie-accurate sole as the adult ones too.

    Sorry guys, did not had much time the last days.

    Thanks man, now that the Star Lord Costume is (90%) finished i can start working on Ronan. ^^


    No, sadly i did not found them. They are really close in the overall shape and i thought about altering the sole if i have enough time. ^^

    Sooooo, i have a bit time and i thought i explain some of the methods i used to make the Costume so far.
    All of the Metal-Stuff on the Coat is actually made of Latex mixed with differend Acrylic paints.
    a57SCUv.jpg

    First i made a Positive out of craftingfoam, made a siliconemold of it and than used liquid latex in it.
    VFJ7Xzv.jpg

    I brushed the first layer in the mold to avoid airbubbles and get in all the details.
    The mix was about half latex half acrylic paint. I dicovered the same method worked with "metal" acrylic paint, so i used it on some of the parts for the bag i did not get somewhere.
    WP1gaYR.jpg
    I didn´t get these parts so i decided to make them by my own. First i bought a small chain with links in a size that matched the parts.
    Made a "Half-Mold" of them and brusheda mix of latex and brass acrylic paint in them.
    JMT1irc.jpg
    It pretty much matched the color of the brass parts. ^^


    The embossing on the coat was made with a very primitive vacuum former.
    Pf23mFo.jpg
    I cut out the shapes i needed out of crafiting foam, used glue on them and the faux lether, glued them and put them on my primitive vacuum form board.
    vM1roA9.jpg
    heated the faux lether with my heatgun the same time my vacuum was sucking the air under it out.
    I think you can use fabric between the faux leather and the vacuum form plate, the holes in the plate can show up on the material.

    The armorparts on the shoulder and forearm were hold in place with press-studs (i never know if this is the right word ^^).
    r2b68R8.jpg IXuTcFM.jpg
    I sewed them on the Coat, for the armor i sewed them in a strong and flat fabric and gueld that into the armor parts.

    The shoulderarmor is completly made of crafting foam, i melted holes and irregularities with a soldering iron on to it. The Cord/String/whatever/Stuff on it is just electrical cord from an old grey charger i had laying around.
    GzQVbJP.jpg

    The forearm armor was a bit more tricky. I used some kind of Foamboard Plastic i got in the DIY market (i dont think this is the correct word XD) for the lower part.
    I formed it with the heatgun, drilled and cut holes and stuff in it and glued brown faux leather on it.
    The upper part is made from crafting foam and different silver acrylic paint.
    rxwnEhH.jpg



    Yeah...i think thats it.
    If anyone has some questinons dont be afraid to ask them.
    I can not promise that i awnser them directly but i will as good as i can. ^^
    (by the way, if the grammar is wrong in any way. I am ****ing drunk als hell at the moment! So please forgive me. ^^)

    So for your boot, did you pattern this manually and sew all these panels?
    As I am pretty sure you did based on what I see...
    I have been hunting for a pattern/material for the ankle and have yet to find one.

    What shoe/boot [oem] are you using?
    Do you have anymore detailed build pics?

    As far as the Shoe goes i was really lucky. I searched through old shoes i and my brother had and found a pair of old sneakers with a matching sole.
    For the rest, i put them on, taped my lower leg and shoe in masking tape and sketched the "base part" on.
    With these patterns i made the upper part of the boot, taped that a second time and sketched the "outer parts" on it.
    IMAG0019.JPG

    I can make some more Pictures of the finished boot later if it helps. I am not sure if i have the patterns anymore but i will search through my stuff and make pictures if i find them.

    Hi Styxx,
    i am working on my Star Lord Cosplay since january and finished it to 90%.
    I will come to the Comic Con in Stuttgart, too. On Saturday you could see me walking and shooting around :)
    I hope we could make a photo together, a little Star Lord, me as big Star Lord, and our evil enemy :D :D

    As i wrote, i wrapped my lower Leg and the shoe in masking tape and drew the pattern for the base on it.
    I saddly dont have them anymore, i thought i just need them that one time. But here are some photos i made:
    IMAG0019.JPG IMAG0020.JPG IMAG0021.JPG
    I sewed them together, glued the base on the shoe and sewed over that.
    After that i made a fake leg out of duct tape (same technique as before, just without the shoe), stuffed it in the boot to give it more support.

    I wrapped the boot in cellophane and masking tape, drew the outer patterns on it.
    Same as before, i sewed all of it together, glued some things in place and sewed over that to make the bond stronger.
    boots03.jpg boots04.JPG boots05.JPG boots06.JPG
    I made the cross pattern panel out of 2mm craftfoam, i cut 1mm into it and hit it with a heatgun. To make it and the rim around it i used the same patterns as for the "base".

    Thats about it, i hope this helps. Next time i will make more photos of the steps in between.

    - - - Updated - - -

    That would be cool.
    We are going on saturday too, so yes if we see each other no problem man. ^^

    No idea how smooth i can get the Hammer in the short time i have left. So i decided to work on the rest that´s almost finished and sand the hammer if i have time left at the end.

    I would not call it programming but i made it in a cheap game engine named "Construct 2". Its a bit like Game Maker and with some other software you can convert the project to an android apk. ^^
