My modded Blood Dragon armour with my custom Turian enhancements and the Black Widow because I can- this is why I made the BW in the end over a pistol- which I was going to do as I still have some rough patches on this thing. Surprise original costume is a suprise. So fun how many people got it. Especially kids who probably shouldn’t be playing the game!

Glam paint job is glam. A layer of flat paints then washed with translucent yellows and pinks mixed with interference pigments (green over the yellow and blue over the pink).

I made 99% of this costume from raw materials. And patterned about the same. Huge shout out to trodoon on dA for his renders of his 3D models as I had print outs on my workroom walls for reference and used them heavily.

Her name? Neimhaille which is a word I created in 1999 and has since been taken up by fantasy artists with my explanation verbatim 😉 Also there is a Bioware account holder who snaffled it but I am so not ditching it given I did literally create the name. It was for a sportsfighting persona (Scottish- I had my play in music sorted as well- Give me the Prize from Highlander 😉 ).

Anyway so Neimhallie (Nee- wa-yeh or Neev-ayel depending on how authenically Gaelic you want to be- though I don’t object to Neem-ayel either 😉 )

I can draw at least :)

So cutting the templates for Shae was harder than it needed to be and I was almost in tears. It is ready to glue together now though and the effort should be worth it.
So after a break I started testing the paper patterns for my Blood Dragon. No, I’m not yet ready to cut the foam base. But I do now have all the armour roughly patterned. Except the helmet. I kind of like how my Lizzie Shep looked with her tiny ponytail and no helmet in cut scenes 🙂

A mix of printer paper, cartridge and baking paper. So yes, it will all need to be transferred. Hpwever my walls are horrible so I need to buy enough card to cover it as well as transfer patterns to.

I have also got my Shae Vizla jetpack almost back together again and the arm displays and “buckles” removed for sanding and detailing. So progress on getting her to Celebration 6 complete is in hand 🙂 But step by step so I can still wear her if occasion calls in the meantime 🙂

And I really love my in game armour. I want to make this set so badly.

#swtor bounty hunter gear can be hit and miss in terms of style. I adore the very early sets and the level 40 PVP gear and a lot of social gear. But this set? I *looooooooooooooove* it. 

Dude it is essentially Barbie Fett. But it also reminds me of Zam and Shae at once. I am not even kidding that I want to make this. You can’t really see but there are aurabesh markings on the helm (over the right eye) and on the thigh (right thigh) so I have been screencapping so I can recreate this. And the light under armour? Looove!!!

Please remind me that I already have Shae and a huge historical costume to try and pack in August? That essentially two sets of identical armour (well in theory, there are obvious differences between game and cinematics) would be silly?

Gah, it’s so damn pretty!!!!!!

That belt and those lower legs were crafted by “me” too XD
