    I’m familiar with this pattern because I do have the Wizard as a costume I’m pretty awesome like that

    Found some patterns that I’m going to build off of. The sleeves of the (what I now know is called) doublet will have to be elongated and cut off at waist high. I’ll also have to avoid the seam in the cloak. Oh I’ll also have to learn how to sew. My lessons are scheduled [emoji16]

    Black dye and loops will be next on the shopping list

    Here are my two approximately 2.5 cm leather straps ($5 a piece). I’ll be gettting the approximately 8 cm strap and black dye next week.

    Probably won’t be much movement on this for a bit as I gather pieces. I ordered 2 thin leather straps for the belt this week. Next pay I’ll order the large strap and dye. I have a few theories on how to design the belt for ease of use and making sure it stays in place with the slight angle to the right. As always I will keep this log updated.

    With proper spacing and securing with more than some blue tape I think this has potential.

    I will edit this out if/when this changes I HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED WITH THIS ARMOR! But I would like to share my templates. Due to the variations i am not 100% confident the throat armor will pass, i based it off of the concept art as much as I could but added some more girth to cover the cloak clasp. Print these out to fit page and they should be accurate enough to Spray adhere to plastic and cut with a razor knife.

    Still going to add more coats

    2nd coat of primer. In between every coat I sand with 1000 grit sandpaper. It gives it such a smooth solid feel and look.

    I decided to try the chest armor just to see how it would lay. I think this design will sit well on the padding. If changes will be made in the future I’ll adapt them to fit.

    Neck Armor Some more neck armor evolution shots Then I decided to go with the point No regrets

    I got my shoulder bend on, I attached the .40 HIPS on it and will chamfer it when it’s cured. Also, the throat armor has a good bend on it now as well. I’m growing more pleased now that it is sitting flat I’m going to let it cool and try to bend it to enclose my neck more tonight

    The very reason why I never threw away my expired hard hat. I just didn’t realize it until today. The concept here is to get a preliminary bend. In my head I’m envisioning this being attached with hook and loop straight to the flak vest neck. I’ll be able to conceal the robe enclosure behind it. Again this is the Beta version. I’m not sold on the shape yet and I think I prefer the arrow style with the crease down the middle.

    It feels like I’m torturing them

    Shoulder Bells (prototype) Drew and traced like I did with the neck armor. This is 3/16 in HIPS. I also did a smaller section of .40 hips, same chamfering concept as above Now they are getting a preliminary bend before being Ziptied to my basement joists for a few days. These are NOT adhered together yet. I do not think it’ll make much of a difference due to their different sizes but bending 2 pieces then gluing them together often helps maintain the bend.
