Drilled a hole for the attachment system.
It was time to start attaching everything on the boots. I cut a piece of denim fabric and hot glued that to the boot.
Then i measured and cut out the fur parts, cutting it from behind with a scalpel so that i don't cut the fur.
Then i sewed the two part together,
I have been battling on how to attach the leather parts on the boot and becasue the original boot was a pair of work boots their sole is made of a rubber that resists glues. But the leather parts around the sole is made from leather so after testing a few diffrent glues i just took some superglue and spot glued the leather to the boot and too be extra sure that it will not get lose as easy, i used my Staple gun on the edge.
Might have gone a little overboard with the stapleing, but i am gonna hide them by painting them black later on.
Just awaiting the boot caps and leather straps and one of the boots are ready. The other one i need to start over with.
The boot caps was painted silver and then i used some latex on the edges and repainted them gold. After they had dried i removed the latex and the silver shines thru.
For weathering i covered the bootcaps with black acrylic mixed with water and cleaned them up as good as i could with a cloth. I think they need a little more dirt on them before i am happy with them.
I have also worked on the muscle suit some more.
Made the Crotch part, and buttcheeks
I also noticed that i needed something extra around the waist, so i made a "belt" to go around.
Buttcheeks getting attached..
Need to attached the arms next.
Started weathering the 300+ "metal" plates /buckles i made.
Its a simple job that take a long time thanks to the large quantity i have. The weathering is just black acrylic and a little water that i paint the part with and then clean away with a rag.
Clean parts on top and weathered parts at the bottom.
Just a few parts ready....Still got huge bags with loads more of these to make...
This is a stencil i have cut out for the pants knee part. Soon starting sewing on the pants.
