I must offer my heartfelt thanks to all on the Lair for their wip threads, huntorials, encouragement, support, and everything... without which this journey could not have been begun or seen through to completion to y'all.

So after much toil, blood (stabbed myself a number of times), sweat -'nuff said :0, and tears- over a certain alteration- here it is, I finished yesterday and suited up....

there's some tweaks to be done (backpack strap, gaunt "safeties", secure dreads, add more mask foam) but the first two of those are done :mad:

Just a couple pics, camera battery was giving me trouble:

Out-freakin-standing work! I look at the way a suit is put together as much as how it looks. You built this suit to last, good and solid, and it looks great to boot. Very nice work....cheers!

Now that you mention the dagger, I don't think I've ever seen an AVP dagger with sheath before on a costume. I didn't even know people were producing them. It looks sweet. How does it attach to the latex shin?

Again my thanks to your excellent WIP threads; they made it go so much easier a big, big tip o' the bio to ya

Thanks Chucky, can't wait to prowl the con!

...........nope, not parting with that dagger, not even if you sicced a whole hive of Xenomorphs after me !

Mr Fett,

I don't know the manufacturer, somebody on ebay had it (for background, see IxSLAY4xI AVP ceremonial dagger thread in Buy & Sell).

Its removable, I made a leather loop that goes lengthwise down the scabbard and around the shinguard with velcro closure inside. The bottom velcro around the anklet and shinguard keeps it from moving, and there's an upper leather loop on the main loop that goes around my leg; keeps it from pulling too much, thats the only strap you can see, and its only visible from the back
The scabbard has holes drilled in it at top and bottom, and leather lacing helps hold it on the lengthwise loop, the weight is too much for epoxy...

Many, many thanks, Paintninja :mad:

I can't keep my thoughts on my task at hand, I keep daydreaming..... amped up for sure

All the stuff (backpack, gaunt ties, dread glue) is done, just need foam in mask to keep it from shifting.... and PACK all this stuff :0

Thanks TiaJa, down to the wire- like Pdisc said on the SDCC thread, I'm a pred-head (OK now I got that song in my head... part of the lyrics are "bang your head, wake the dead...." can't remember what metal band did that... )
