I like the paint spatters on your gloves and boots. They are more realistic.

Thank you! All those years working in an airbrush shop gave me good reference, lol. Wink

can you add some padding at the top of the interior of the helmet to make the helmet sit higher on your head?

No unfortunately, I can already barely see out of the eye slot. I made the helmet before I got the wig so I didn't account for the extra volume. I usually just carry it anyway.

What did you use for elbow and knee pad elastic? I've been having a hard time finding elastic that wide with stretches both directions.

It's actually leftover material from the shirt, so some sort of rayon athletic shirt material. I did have proper 4-way elastic on there and after a few hours it was painful and rubbed a raw spot on the inside of my arm. Don't recommend. The shirt material is much better. Smile

That's awesome, because that's EXACTLY what I decided to try this weekend! Now I just have to make the pants. I've never made pants for a girl before, so this ought to be a "interesting." Thanks for sharing your build. My daughter and I have have a blast working on this costume!

Your Sabine is amazing!

I'm thinking about making this costume. I have a question about the pants and shirt, did you top-stitch the lighter brown/gray panels onto your shirt and pants or did you just cut your pants/shirt and seam the panels on?

hey again!

First let me say that it was great to spend the weekend with you at Geekonomicon. And second, from seeing this in person, its very impressive work! The paint really has to be seen to be appreciated.

Looking forward to seeing you again!

Can I ask how you did the armor on your boots? Specifically how you attached them? The only part of my Hera that's left to do is the boots, and she has a piece of armor on hers too. But I'm having no luck figuring out how to attach it.

I did a sample to to try two different types of adhesive, and neither held up well.

The plastic I heated and bent to form the armor also doesn't seem to want to hold it's shape very well, so I'm hesitant to try velcro. I suspect it would wouldn't be strong enough to hold the plastic in shape.

any ideas or advice?

Mine were glued but like you said, they didn't hold up terribly well, I have to re-attach them every time I wear it. I'm replacing the boots and the next set will most likely be attached with snaps or elastic somehow.

Would you mind sharing where you found the metal hardware for the belt/holster?

This has been a great reference for my Sabine costume! How did you add the grey to the shirt and the lighter color to the pants? I was thinking about cutting the pieces and using iron-on adhesive.
