Savage Opress almost ready to submit

Recommended Posts

Hello from Orange, CA. I am almost finished with my Savage Opress cosplay. I'm sharing my most recent photos to collect feedback before I submit my official photos.

  • My contacts were dried out, so I'm not wearing them in these pics. 
  • I need to finish and install the armor on the boots, and weather my boots a bit.
  • I also need to find a good solution to keep my hands looking yellow. However, I think I'm almost done and I would appreciate your feedback.

 

My photos show a deviation from the CRL - the vest/armor is not black and silver as per the CRL. Instead, it is dark brown with weathered seams, which is more accurate to the Clone Wars version of the character. I've included a screenshot for reference. I would appreciate guidance on adding this variation to the CRL.

 

Thank you in advance for your time and effort. Savage wouldn't say it, but I will - May The Force Be With You!

looking great there bud,

 

firstly, your boot don't appear to be high enough. the officer boots from sovietboots.com are a great knee high option and have a great heel in them as well.

there is also the absence of the 3 belts and buckles around the boots and the armour cap on the toe

the undershirt should be something of compression wear as it needs to be form-fitting to prevent blousing.

as for the hands, i still paint mine and apply nails every troop but look into welovecolors.com for some form-fitting gloves to make it easier. you can also apply nails to them with hot glue to make it easier.

the zipper on the vest should not be visible so a flap of leather secured with velcro is a good option.

the belt buckle and greeblies should be enclosed on the top and bottom so they don't have a 'hollow' look. 

i cant really tell with these photos and there is arguments on the topic but for your approval pics, you'll need a dark brown (yeah, almost black) face paint. the baldcap should be seamless so liquid latex is a good way to blend it to your skin via stippling and layering it up

make sure the bicep armour sits up higher also as it should be at the bottom of the shoulder armour. (more around the bicep than the top of the elbow)

 

as with all costumes, it comes down to your GML's approval.

 

i hope this helps with your build. its looking fantastic

JD,

 

Thank you for the awesome feedback. Here's a better pic of the boot and buckles. It sounds like they're too short, so I'll get on that! I was planning to start working on the toe caps tonight, but perhaps I'd better get the boots corrected, first. [Ignore those pants; they're what I wore to work today. :D ]

I see what you're saying about the undershirt - I'll get to work on that.

Thanks for the tip on the gloves!

That's a great tip on the greeblies and buckle. I'm actually a little embarrassed I didn't think of that. Easy fix, though!

Definitely - dark brown face paint and better bald cap application for the win. Is my yellow, um, YELLOW enough?

And yeah, I was losing patience with my bicep armor during this shoot. I think I've found a good solution, though.

 

Thanks again for all of your assistance! Your Savage is awesome and it inspired me to take on this challenging costume.

I'm still working on finishing Savage, but I'm getting closer..

I finally have the boots right and I've added the steel toes.

I've figured out the gloves, too.

I've worn it to cosplay in a couple of times, and I think I need to have the waist taken in a little.
