    Female Chest Armor b/c cup

    There was a lot of interest here for female chest armor. I don't really like my chances of making something good out of a manniquin. If I sculpt a couple of b/c size....umm....breasts on a torso for the collar and ab pieces..and they turn out well, who will vac them? All this cause of my wifes custom mando :-(
    The machine will have to be good and sucky cause theres no point doing this to make .060 armor. .125 is what Im talking about. I would'nt bother making a bunch of bucks just a master to pull off of till its ratty. Any takers?

    i used a half mannquin everthing turned out great.

    The only problem I found was sanding off the nipples.....I don't mean to be inappropriate but its very true. Why they are there, we may never know. hahaha



    Good Luck with your kit!!

    Yeah, a mannequin works fine, why not just give it a try, as Isabet, and LoneWolf have both made EXCELLENT FEM Armor from mannequins:

    I checked out those two threads bro -thanks very much....I know Id seen one of them before but not the other. They both look good. I will go to ebay now and scope me out a womaniquin. I still think its a good idea to have something sculpted up and Im probably going to go ahead and do it anyway.

    Hopefully I can wear it around the house a bit before wifey gets home.........j/k.

    If I do a sculpt Ill ressurect this thread with a few progress pics.
    Thanks for your input,
    Mike

    womaniquin
    yeah, you can use a mannequin as a base for your buck (I dont think your GF is gonna let you plaster all over her), then you can mold it or something, but don't give up, we NEED to see more people doin this, remember the trash can armor wasn't that popular in the beginning, but myself and a lot of others are using trash cans and doing lots of cool stuff, so, the more mannequin fem mando's that come around, the better.
    I still gotta make a set for the wifey, but I promised the kids I'd do theirs first.
