Bad picture quality but have sourced boots from sovietboots.com. Calf high, worn leather with a heel. No zippers or buckles either.

 

Fabric for the skirt, obi and pants bought from my local haberdashery store. Black raw silk to match the CRL requirement. Will be getting a seamstress from within the Redback Garrison to help with the sewing on all those parts

 

Crafting the shoulder and bicep armour out of EVA foam. Still alot of shaping to do but hopefully will come out looking a million bucks after paintwork.

 

Will post progress pics as more pieces come together down the track11ae2bc80314bb41021ffa79c99b39b9.jpgba3500adc3037f084b285852d6488464.jpg7a12dec955f0bb343813738b5d4d8654.jpg49192c00e84364c247c31a8b92f95fa3.jpg

Got these today to use for the buckles and belts on the boots (6 in total). Will get them stitched onto the boots to make it more permanent and also to provide somewhere to fix industrial velcro to for the shin guards51dac6786686a7f1896346e397e1ded2.jpg

Wasnt happy with the first fabrication of the shoulder armour (had no ridge and also wasnt uniform in line at the bottom). Made new patterns and redone. Alot happier now.

 

Shaped bicep armour pieces, ready to be fixed to elastic straps to hold in place.

 

Received boots from sovietboots.com today. Done a quick mock up of how the straps will sit with the top one sitting just below the calf muscle. Will take to cobbler to fix onto boots permanently next week.

 

Onto coating foam parts with some sort of fiberglass resin so it can be textured for weathering and gunmetal look.

 

Will be vac-forming shin guards and vambraces from abs so need to start working on bucks for that process.

 

Will keep the pics coming37caf120339cc7a371847ff89cf2ef92.jpgdb6738b74814c64ce816c94c4705c9cc.jpge125f716250b5d0dbb3a1b0ca2eb2409.jpg

Got my boots back from Mister Minit (local cobbler) today. Little bit of trimming of belts and weathering to do, but im very happy with their work. Next is a trip to Mammasiths house for a fabric drop and measure up. Slow progress, but still progress nonetheless. d4c9932b5a3e576d356f6e86afdda91d.jpg
