Hey guys! The kids have started up with school again and I'm finding myself in need of a project. I've been wanting to put together this costume for 3 or 4 months, so I guess now is as good a time as any.
I'm going to try my best to post details and how-to's to help others along with their builds. There will likely be mistakes and do-overs, but that's part of the fun of it all.
I've got my helmet kit from Sandman (Todd). It has been sitting on the shelf for about 6 months, unfinished. I've been doing Boushh helmet builds for other people and mine has just been put on the back burner. The bandolier kit and tank kit I got in a trade deal, and I've got a kit for the shoulder/chest armor.
For the soft parts I am mostly just winging it. I am not a super awesome seamstress, but I am halfway decent. I've got a pattern for the tunic that will likely need some modifications.
I don't have any parts for the boots/spats yet (like the disks). And I don't have the belt buckle either. The pants will probably be my biggest challenge.
Anyway, stay tuned. Lots of posts to come.
