I'll take photos of my set up later today. I ended using bondo to strengthen my plastic bits and build up the armor. I can go through all the steps with you if you want. What level of ease/involvement are you looking to put in?
I started out using armature wire to sculpt it to my shoulder shape to get the top "cap" part. I tried using sculpy to cover that and it just wasn't working for me so I ended up getting some thermoplastic and heat-gunning it to the form. I later came to find out one can get a set of used knee pads or something and just dremel the main pad down into the shape that works.
That looks smart., I was thinking about making one or two substitutes, instead of wires I may use fibreglass (always in fear of it warping)
and maybe start of with thin foam, so I can sow any "clips" or connection bits on to it, and then if I keep the underside soft it will not hurt her shoulder - saying that it maybe better to run the fibreglass all over to seal it and then I will just run some felt on the inside for padding...
Did you have any templat for the fome?
I was debating whether I should upload this or not, but i was told i should and figured i had nothing to lose ..so... here goes!!
my sweet pea cosplay progress so far ^^
still have lots to do, but I'm proud of it so far apologies for crappy phone pic too xD
I know this is an old thread but Amber's screen used boots were fiorentini & baker boots similar to these but black.Man, these are pretty hard to find. I'm doing Amber's costume but had to try looking. The closest ones I found were:
Platform Boots: Thigh High 5inTwo-Tone Lace-Up Platform Thigh-high Boot, Side Zipper Black-Red/Black
Two colour Lace Up Front Thigh High Boots :: Thigh High Boots :: Nicci Shoes
In both the heels aren't exactly right. After looking at her single poster again and the way the top of the boot fits her leg shape exactly, you gotta wonder at this point if they were custom-made?
