Strider - Just echoing Boochman, but yeah that blaster looks pretty awesome! Great job! I recently painted my own blaster but went overboard on the rust effects. I wasn't happy with it so I recently started over, gonna go lightly this time around. What colors were you using for the Blaster and Gauntlets?
Barrel might be a bit short but it looks nice
Strider - Good stuff! I had also read that about Imperial Boots (That they're sizes ran small) I'm just shy of 12.5 in shoe size but since I really can't find 12.5 in most retail shoes I usually end up getting a Size 13 (e.g. Nike Adidas, etc.). When in the US Army I was always issued Size 12.5 Boots which fit great. I was nervous about ordering a size 13 from Imperial Boots as most say they run small. I ordered anyway and when they came I was pleased with how well they fit. (Maybe I got lucky) Still though, suck that you now have to order another pair. Still gonna go with Imperial Boots? or the other popular one......"CA Boots" I think they're called.
Thanks, bro! Yes, the fabric has already enjoyed an hourly bath in hot black tea but it doesn't really get much darker than that at this point. Let's see how airbrush works - haven't used it on fabric yet, lol.I soaked mine in black tea, and that did the trick in making that pouch a different shade as a base, then weather from there!
Pretty cool that you sewed your own tho! They look great!
But hats off to ya - again looks great! Concerning the "Burned" parts on the soft pieces of the costume - has anyone tried using an actual flame (Lighter or small butane torch) to achieve those effects? I thought about trying that with my cape.
Cape looks great - not overdone at all!
I wanted to do the plate too, and was all ready to do it this week, but couldn’t find the small flathead bolts at Home Depot! Where did you end up grabbing yours from!?!
