    With the huge success of the movie opening weekend and the bevy of Star-Lords kicking around here, I figured it was time this got thrown together. I would like to use this thread to pool our resources to decode one of the most detailed costumes I've seen around!

    Knowing that just about every piece is custom, we can at least try to figure out fabrics, hardware, colors, etc. to help in putting together some pretty great, accurate costumes.

    So let's start with what we know: custom, custom, custom. Marvel has been moving in this direction for quite some time, and it certainly isn't making our lives easier!

    Here's a quick video showcasing some of the pieces with commentary from the property master and costume designer:



    If you have seen the film, you know there are three distinct looks the Quill has: the trench seen on Morag, the short jacket used throughout the film, and the third act uniform utilized during the final battle.

    Trench:

    Short Jacket:

    ​Third Act Uniform:

    [​IMG]

    fe6846cecda983499f4d65a24821f22d.jpg

    As you can see, all three jackets have very distinct differences outside of their color. Construction, fabrication, and details are all over the place! For my own costume, I'm first focusing on the short jacket. Just like the majority of Star-Lords out there, I purchased the replica (found on many different sites, I picked mine up on ebay)

    My plan is to use the jacket as a base and rework some of the details to bring it just a little bit closer to accurate.

    Lucky for us, the trench costume and the short jacket costume are pretty much the same with a few exceptions (other than the jacket). The shirt, belt/holsters, pants, and boots are all used for both looks. The trench costume has the addition of gloves. Quill also carries with him a sling bag worn cross-body with both of these costumes.

    Star-Lord_and_Gamora.jpg

    This is the best image I have found to show detail of the jacket, sling bag, pants, and boots.

    Next, let's take a look at the shirt.

    As best I can tell, it is similar to a pique knit in a steel blue/grey color. It has a custom wide ribbed collar, and some mesh-like panels on the abdomen.

    starlord2.jpg

    Many people have gone with a basic long sleeve Hanes T-shirt in a close enough color. I was able to find a short sleeve pique knit tee that looks pretty close in color. I would like to add the collar detail and mesh panels, but I don't think I'm likely to find fabric in the right color to add those details.

    On to the pants. OH the pants! These things are a beast. So many details and multiple fabrics.

    Referencing the same image above that shows the back of the pants, it looks as though the exterior panels are made from a waxed cotton/canvas and the interior panels are possibly a cotton twill or nylon/cordura. There is the same type of zipper, which appears to be nonfunctional, that is used on the short jacket. On the front of the pants there are two panels at the top with a faint ticking stripe stitched in, an extended flap closure, more panels, straps, and snaps. You'll also find the rocket controls mounted to the outside of the knee. At the knee there is also what looks to be some pleated horizontal panels. On the hips are leather padding, similar to motorcycle pants body armor. This is where the quad blasters sit while holstered (more on that later)

    2014-07-31-14.56.55.png

    I am waiting on some fabric samples of some waxed cotton canvas to see how I like the color, and I'm also waiting on some black cordura to arrive. My plan is to make these completely from scratch. Should be fun! (even my wife who sews often doesn't think she can do it--I got this! :lol)

    Moving down to the boots. We have already determined that the soles come from a pair of Skecher's Diameter shoes, though which exact model I'm not sure. It would appear they added the soles to black knee high boots, and then added custom brown leather spats over the front.

    [​IMG]

    starlord3.jpg

    Again, referencing the image above of the back of Quill, you can see all the detail of the back of the boots and spats, how they are connected, and where the rockets sit.

    Speaking of rockets, let's talk accessories!

    Helmet, quad blasters, Walkman, belt/buckle...

    star-lord-helmet-guns-walkman-guardians-galaxy-comic-con-13-610x405.jpg

    There's already been several replicas that have been produced (or are in the works). There have also been some C&Ds issued over these too, so I won't go into much detail on the helmet.

    For the quad blasters, there are a few options out there. The Nerf blasters are excellent for a budget build, and that is the direction most people go. They are affordable, easily obtainable (for the time being), and easily modified.

    GOTG-STAR-LORD-QUAD-BLASTER-A7910-Closed.jpg

    There is a 3D print file courtesy of Helagak available here on the forums, which I in turn mastered and molded to produce casts.

    20140804_004643_zpsygd5m8dq.jpg
    pre-weathering*

    Lastly, there have been several people here who have created their own using various methods: MDF, foam, etc.

    @MorbidCharlie has done the best job so far at creating the belt--take a look at his build thread! I'm hoping a bit more reference will come out on that so we can get a clearer look at some of the intricacies. The buckle has been reproduced by many people using Sculpey to create the shape and ridges, then distressed and painted/weathered. I commissioned a 3D model of the buckle, and I am considering doing a run of cold cast buckles. I'll start up an interest thread in the coming weeks for that.

    Finally, here is a quick video that @MattMunson shot at the Arclight Theater in Sherman Oaks along with @E-Wan



    E-Wan mentioned to me earlier today he would be returning to take loads more photos of the screen-used costume on display. I'll definitely add more reference here as I can!

    So let's have at it... What can you add?

    Well that is an awful tease! What brand is the short sleeve shirt?

    For the gloves was thinking about coyote Blackhawk SOLAG's re-dyed red.

    For those of you wondering about the Walkman. It is a Sony Walkman TPS-L2, but more specifically, not the early model that only said stereo on the front, but the the later ones that said Sony Walkman. Prices for these range from $200-$400. A slightly cheaper option is to go with a 3rd gen walkman, the Sony WM-3 which is nearly identical, except it is an all black case, prices range from $50-$200. And the third option(s) are the Sony TCM-100 and TCM-600. Both are similar to the original, except coloring, and added buttons (these ones record) and a few other variances prices vary greatly with these, but I have seen some beat up ones for $40. Until I find a TPS-L2 for cheap, I am just going to go with a handmade case for my iPhone that will resemble one of these (to be made).

    This site shows a lot of great angles of the TPS-L2 for those of you who will just make a prop piece. http://www.minimallyminimal.com/blog/sony-walkman-tps-l2

    There was also a blue costume he wore at the very end. That almost leads into the comics a bit where he wears matching blue uniforms with his team. It looks very similar to the last costume, but a navy blue. Wish there were more pictures of that one as well.

    I can't wait for the DVD/digital release of this!

    Thanks for the shout out. I'm running into some real issues trying to replicate the shoes/boots and last night was ready to throw in the towel on the whole project. I've cooled down now. :p

    One thing I wanted to mention (if you're going for screen accuracy) are the side vents on the quad-blasters. I've not seen anyone mention these or seen them on any of the models. On the top of the quad blaster there is a screen/vent in the shape of an oval. I found this by looking at the NERF toy and there is a small indented oval on the top where the vent is supposed to be. It's hard to see in most of the images, but you can see it here faintly:

    Much easier to see here...

    Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 2.37.20 PM.png

    I have amassed quite the collection of shots on these little buggers as I build up to making my own replicas.

    I also have a guess that the "nose" of the gun, over those exposed heatsinks actually moves back and forth with each shot...but don't know how fast it does that. That might be a discovery that has to wait until the Bluray comes out.

    Adding to my library of The Art Of... books, I've got this on preorder:

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully there is some great reference in there (and given the history of the series, there should be!)

    Here are a few pictures of what I have so far.

    The jacket:

    [​IMG]

    First order of business here is to remove the awful slide buckles and leather straps on the forearms. I'm going to try to replace those with the oval grommets and canvas/nylon straps shown on the actual jacket

    The shirt, which I picked up at TJ Maxx of all places (a discount clothing store) for only $8:

    [​IMG]

    And a close-up of the knit texture. It photographs more grey than blue, but in person it has more of a blue tone to it.

    [​IMG]

    And my Walkman (complete with Awesome Mix Vol. 1 of course!). It's not a TPS-L2, but it will do for now. The blue color I chose is too bright, so I'm still on the lookout for a better color to paint with:

    Maybe I missed something, but these were the uniforms they wore at the end...

    Same uniforms, but they were blue. Every member looked exactly the same, but they were blue. This was when they were each parting ways with the Nova Corpsman John C. Reilly (actor).

    His pants do look pretty blue there though. I remember thinking the same thing in the theater. Could just be the lighting or my eyes playing tricks on me, but they definitely look different.

    The more I dive into this project the more I see that there are so many different outfits that look almost the same for starlord within this one movie... once GotG2 comes out there is gonna be another half dozen outfits too, hahaha.

    It wasn't a very long scene and I remember thinking: "They sure do change clothes alot. Even the Ravagers have stuff in Rocket's size, so why not the Nova Corps?" lol
    Look forward to seeing pics of your Rocket display!

    I think we should go ahead and state unapologetically: SPOILERS IN THIS THREAD!!

    We're going to be talking about the film and reference specific scenes, so if you're in here and you haven't seen the movie yet, GO SEE IT!

    I don't think he was wearing blue pants in the final scene. I saw the film twice and was really paying attention in that scene, especially because it's one of the few times you get to see his costume in bright light, so you can make out lots of details. I think in that scene in particular, you're seeing black pants in bright sunlight, so they appear blue. The nova corps uniform is definitely a royal blue, but i think Star Lord's still wearing his black pants. Also, if the nova corps gave him new pants, i would think they'd match the nova corp stuff. But the pants in the final scene still have all of the details found on the pants he wears through most of the film.

    Here's a great shot that you posted already, but way bigger. Shows good detail of the back of the boots and spat closures, as well as the jacket and pants.

    quill-back.jpg

    Oh and be sure to take a look at my thread, lots of pics and stuff on my costume. :)

    I've only seen the movie once, but from what I recall of the final scene, Rocket and Drax are both in blue. Rocket's got a little jumpsuit like he has had the whole movie and Drax looks like he might be just wearing some armored Nova pants. Gamora looked like she had a black leather top of some kind and a skirt. Star Lord looks like he's back to the short leather jacket costume he's had for most of the movie. His pants seem to have a bit of a blue tint, as you can see in Kevin's earlier picture, but it may just be a trick of the lighting.

    Do we know if anyone got good shots of the helmet at Comic Con? Apparently it was on display at Hasbro.

    Hi everyone,

    I am a brand new user and new to prop building, so please forgive me if this is a silly question but would love some advice if any has the time to give it.

    I am planning on building Star Lords blasters out of MDF which is my current chosen medium as I am no way near talented enough to be able to cast them, and I was wondering if any one had some advice on the best way to paint them and/or paints to use to get that hard and sparkly metallic look, like pictured above normally I paint my projects with just standard Acrylic paint then coat with a gloss protective layer.

    I did just purchase myself an airbrush, and am looking for to taking it for a burl however, am i correct in thinking metallic paints may be to thick to use with an airbrush?

    Thank you kindly for any help you can provide, I am most excited to have been able to join this community, I just wish there were more hours in the weekend to work on builds :)

    Only Rocket had a blue themed version of his suit on. Quill had essentially the same costume as most of the movie but with more basic, blueish pants. Gamora had a black leathery dress, and I don't know what Drax had on...but he only wears pants and boots, so...

    Welcome! There are a number of star lord build threads in this forum, I suggest you browse through them to familiarize yourself with how other builders have crafted their props. As for painting silver, me and a number of other folks have had good luck with a substance called Rub N Buff. Look into that and see if it's something you could possibly use.

    So, I've been collecting a TON of reference images of every piece of Star-Lord's get-up for the past few weeks, and this is the perfect place to let them free. Below (starting with props, then costume) are the images that I feel will be most helpful.

    To start, high-res photos of the screen-used mask on display at the Hasbro booth at Comic-Con:

    I haven't seen it mentioned here but, joatrash made a very astute observation by pointing out the fabric weave on the body of his jacket in this post here: http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=219413&p=3383339&viewfull=1#post3383339

    I tend to agree with him that it does seem to be a cotton twill that has been screen printed with the design on it, much like the new Trek tunics.

    He also has (almost) positively ID'd the correct zipper in this post here: http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=219413&p=3385337&viewfull=1#post3385337

    The jackets on the market are woefully inaccurate. I understand that they whipped them up based on trailers, previews and what pictures were available. But you can see that what the mass produced jackets interpreted as perforation was the screen-printed design on the body. The bicep strap is actually threaded through oval grommets, not a strap that goes completely around the arm. That's just what I noticed at first glance.

    One thing we should note... I read somewhere that Disney/Marvel have their own textile shop where they create and produce custom fabrics for the movies.

    Awesome find on the soles. I've been looking through sketchers and the soles are on a few different shoes of theirs (garzo, vassell, diameter). But looking at the lines in the shoe it doesn't look like a sketchers shoe. It's too smooth without a ton of extra designs. I'm searching through a ton of shoes looking for the right body.

    I would start looking at motorcycle boots and not necessarily just the soles. Look at some of Matt Munson's HD video. You can see the back of the boots.

    The soles are definitely from the Skechers shoe, added on to a boot.

    Kevin's correct. I was the one that discovered the shoes they used. I looked at photos of the prop display from last year's comic-con and matched the sole details (diamond pattern on the sides, pebble texture underneath) to a pair of skechers I found while shopping at Academy Sports.

    Here's a good shot of the shoes. I bought a pair of the brown Skecher Diameter Garzos based on this pic.

    icm_fullxfull.41715618_n215iugze6o8s4cssgso.jpg

    However, a few months later this picture surfaced showing showing starlord's back. I cropped it down to just focus on the boots.. You can clear see that the shoe soles are the same, but the shoe continues up the back of the leg. Since i know Skechers doesn't make calf-high boots, the only conclusion I could come to is that they pulled the soles off some skechers and built new boots for Star Lord from the ground up.

    These are truly one off pieces that were designed to match the spats. You can see leather details coming up from the heels, and a brown leather tab at the top of the calf. Also, and this is especially trick, the boot has hooks or nubs strategically placed for the spats to hook into and secure themselves directly to the boot. So rather than being laced up or using velcro etc, they are integrated with the boots seamlessly.

    I would love to see these boots made custom, but I don't know if anybody here is an experienced cobbler that could put them together. I had a pair of spats made by a leather worker on etsy that you can see in my thread. He did a pretty good job. The color isn't exactly what i want, and the toe piece isn't as accurate as it should be, but they pull off the look very well.

    Thanks for posting that Beechy. That's the jacket most of the cosplayers here have. One guy got a custom version made (I forget who), and a few are making a long-coat by hand, but that's the one many people are using for their costume. Myself included.

    Owning one of these jackets, the most glaringly obvious error in construction is the shoulder flaps. If you compare the costume display video that was shot at the movie theater, and the jacket link that was just posted, you can see that the flaps over the shoulders are open at the bottom, and the arm details are sewn down. But in the movie, it's the other way around...the flaps over the shoulder are sewn down and the flaps over the outer arms are opened on one side. It's a bit of a bummer because the shoulder flaps open up and pucker awkwardly when you raise your arms.

    I still like the jacket and wouldn't discourage anyone from buying one, it's a nice piece and I've received compliments on it even from people who didn't know it was part of a costume. Just something to consider if you're going for 100% accuracy.

    IronManiac, Is it possible to sew down the shoulder flaps to prevent puckering? Or would it not look right?

    I've thought about it, but honestly i don't know enough about making clothes to know what it would do.

    I'll ask a friend of mine that helped make my pants. I suppose it's possible.

    That's the biggest thing that bothers me about wearing it. I'm going to look into that as well

    I'm not disagreeing with the Sketchers at all but merely saying for a quick construction you could look at trendy casual motorcycle boots! Similar how it was discovered that the new Star Trek boots were motorcycle boots from Puma.

    Having worked with leather for six years making Can Jack Sparrow items I am attempting to make the boots using the Sketchers and overlaying and gluing on the leather. I wear Sketchers so I have a rough construction sketck. Now to find the greeblies that hold it all together at Tandy leather. I hand stitch so this will be challenging!!!

    My plan is to remove the soles from the Skechers and glue to an existing costume boot and make some alterations, then add the spats :thumbsup

    That could work, Kevin. The boots themselves are not that important, because you can't see much of them...only the toe, a bit of the sides, and the back between the spat. I was more worried about getting spats that looked correct, because that's where the focus is. If you could figure out how the spats connect to the boot without using laces (as i did), that would look really good. :)
