This pattern is pretty easy to work from and I like it!

When I get my lacing for my girth belt, I'll kit up in what I have ready thus far and see how it all looks. I'm pleased with the suede colors! My bandolier kit and boot disks should be here Thursday and I may work on that before starting to draft my spats.

Pardon selfie mode, photo assistance is unavailable ATM Very Happy



The only thing I'm not happy with is I attempted to use my blind hem foot on the bottom hem after having a few practice pieces. So I may redo the bottom hem.

Bandolier kit and boot disks have arrived! HUZZAH!!



All resin pieces got a good scrubbing and hit with primer. It's cloudy today so garage lighting was less than ideal. Everything got a base coat of silver. All but the boot disks got a coat of black. I'll have to touch everything up tomorrow before weathering. (If it's a sunny day.)

Thank you, Lora!

Lighting was muuuuch better today with sunny skies and a bright garage. Getting better lighting in the garage for painting and other work is on the to-do list.

Anywho! Today, everything got touched up with black. Then the weathering began! I misted german grey then sky grey over the pieces.




Afterwards came the dry brushing with flat aluminum!



Next up, umber wash for extra grime and blending!




​​​​​​​Now to move onto stitching up the webbing and to remember the specific 'X' and triangle stitches by the buckle and on the shoulder. I'll in all likelihood be screwing/riveting the greeblies and cylinders to the bandolier for security. Glue + weight of the parts just doesn't feel secure enough.

Greeblies are looking good. Cool

And I just love that word: greeblies. Heh. Used to describe any odd item you can't really categorize. Razz

I'm always sad when I'm done painting! It's my favorite part of a project!

Well, you get to weather the costume, and that's kinda like painting, isn't it? Wink

AYUP!!!

And experiment with the india ink drip bath! Muwahahahaha!

I started putting the bandolier together today in terms of stitching the 'X' and stitching the code cylinder straps in place. I'm not happy with my X. I may pick the stitches and redo it. My gray thread is too close a match to the nylon webbing. Also working on locating the soldering iron so I can poke holes in the nylon to screw and/or rivet greeblies and the cylinders in place.

It's not often you hear someone complain about something being too close a match. Razz

LOL. Well... I'd like the thread to be a darker shade. I'll take photos with flash later to see how well it shows.

Allergies have been beating me up something fierce, so after a few days downtime with that... back to work!

I laid out the greeblies to arrange placement and see where I needed to poke holes in the bandolier. I prefer to use a soldering iron since nylon melts when heated so the hole poked doesn't fray to pieces. 



I HATE my first attempt at the box with the 'X' beneath the greeblies. It was clumsy and lopsided. So I removed those stitches and remade the box. 



I am not happy with my shoulder triangle stitching.



Box and 'X' redone. MUCH happier with this one. Now to get some washers for the screws so I can attach the greeblies.

Box looks so nice redone- the triangle is fine but re-doing it more cleanly will make you much happier in the end I am sure. Weathering is great!

Yeah I think I'm redoing the triangle. UGH Costuming problems right?

I have my boot disks painted silver but am looking over techniques on making them look tarnished.

I also may be buying my belt supplies here soon. What's the width on the belt? 1.5" or 2" width for the leather? I don't see it specified on the RL side.

Good catch! I think it is 1.5 but I would say either 1.5 or 2 is acceptable.
