Femshep in a giganitic retro swimsuit??!!!

Just kidding, my nifty lycra arrived so I had to see if I had enough. Yep.

And no it is not going…

Patterning! And exhaustion!

Been sleeping until at least 2pm each day for the last three days so I’m no entirely sure what is going on there…

That said I have been able to do stuff, as can be seen by my posts ;)Today I redid the bodysuit pattern for my Blood Dragon. I am much happier…

Bodysuit… eh..

I’m not totally happy with the fabric. I think I’ll be making a smexy PVC one instead. I mean really, if I’m going to make something I’ll be happier making it flattering and comfy and this stuff is all that and more. And I may be able to get the mesh…

I keep wanting to make my Blood Dragon armour ASAP. ANd the think is I have now got a really good method for smoothing and shaping. And the armour would be freaking amazing to have that solid feel. And I kind of probably can do the hyper curved pieces…

And the last of the most important bits…

Not gonna lie this would have been a lot messier and wasteful had I not used the papercraft object. I still had to get it to fit and also to create pieces I cut off and lost. Very happy with how the jets and power pack fit against the back.
I have pencilled in the edges of the back straps, and there is a corner of the support layer still visible. I’ll keep it but it will be dyed black. In game there is an area under the arms that is so deep in shadow it looks black. This shape is preferable to keep as well for stability when worn- prevents stretching.

So still leather as the bulk of this but I may be using fibreglass to support the back things and also centre front plastron.

So that took too long but I have butt cup thing and hip, belt, thigh pieces. Stage 1 again but I have run out of card. Also cut the original papercraft chest pieces apart and I think I will just use them with the new cutting lines as well as create a new shoulder and back support.
So most of it will be my pattern (direct to mannequin) but the chest will be an alteration of the papercraft. Unless I go and buy even more card and just do this out of stubborness…. Which is fairly typical.
I need more card anyway….
