WIP vol.2 (Chest plate)

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 26, 2011, 4:30 PM






Yo!

I made a chest plate body and some shoes today.
Because this is going to be a quite long WIP, I'm only going to post chest plate WIP tonight.
Shoes are coming up tomorrow.

Oh lol, this chest plate almost drove me nuts.
First time making this kind of stuff.
And second time making a cosplay out of wonderflex!

Oh well, I bet you all gonna laugh.
But wanna know how I made it?
I taped myself with wonderflex, heated myself in front of a mirror with a hot air blower and ran in a bathtub full of cold water :D
Oh lol.
I think it took me about 10 hours to cut, shape and paint it.

Here ya go, a bunch of WIP photos for everyone. I hope you can get some tips!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me ^^;


Oh some lovely patterns are the first thing to do.


Warm it up and shape it a bit.


More shaping and taping.


Best weight in the world, a bottle of beer.


Oh trying out some ornaments and stuff. Also made some collar testing.


Lock system. A total of 8 locks in the chest plate armor.


In right:: "I would like bigger chest muscles to look cool = No, it's not gonna work, you just look like a man with BIG BOOBS. =__=
In left: The next tryout to make normal chest muscles.



Cutting out some ornaments.




Full chest thing completed.


Chest thing attached.


Okay, here comes the tricky part.
First, add a layer of violet in the corners.
After that, add a layer of dark blue with drybrushing technique.
(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drybrush)




Second layer, a bit lighter blue.


Third layer, even more lighter blue.


Paint all golden parts.
THAT'S IT! FINISHED o/

Well, that was my first tryout of a chest plate armor.
What do you think?

Tomorrow I will post the shoes WIP and a photo of the full body amor on me.
Hope you will like it!

Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's wonderflex, plastic which can be activated by heat.

really good work! love it! *_*

only a suggestion: I would add a layer of darken gold colour to the decorations. ;)
Reply
:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks!

Yup, it's a bit shame that I don't have any other gold color, darker etc, and you can't mix your own because it's a special paint.
I thought 'bout adding one special layer for it today. And those golden parts are extremely shiny in the character pic xD

Transparent paint? I'm not sure what you mean.
Like transparent dark paint or?

Oh my goodness, "cosplay without pain is lying" indeed, huh? X,D Don't get yourself injured, please.... :,D These WIP journals are a real joy to read, and your attitude towards cosplay (telling these things so openly!) is something I really admire. And yes, the armor looks pretty great for a first try! Looking forward to more. : D

Kun sitä lämmittää, niin saisko siitä esim. "pallon", siis tarkoitan, että voiko sitä vaikka laittaa keilapallon päälle ja sen kanssa muotoilla puolipallon ilman saumoja. Mietin vaan kypärän tekoa...
Reply
:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Venyvyys ei oo mitään parasta. Saa jonkun matkaa palloa muotoiltua, mutta ilman saumoja ei saa ehkä ihan puolipalloksi asti.
Tosin jos rypyt ei haittaa, niin voi hieman käännellä taitteille ja siten saa kyllä pallon. Myöhemmin ne rypyt voi leikata irti, pinnan lämmittää uudelleen ja muokkailla tasaiseksi. Ja jos on tarpeeksi kätevä käsistään niin sauman saa piilotettua, koska wonderflex sulaa yhteen.

Ok, kiitos infosta :) Ajattelin vaan yhtä kypärää tässä vaan...
Reply
:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Kypärään toimii paremmin kipsiharso ;D
Sillä saa täydellisen muotin omasta päästä ja ei tule saumoja.
Samalla aineella voi tehdä myöskin täydellisen peruukkipään itselleen.
Kipsiharsosta on tehty esim: Ichigon kypärä jossa on ne sarvet.
Reply
:iconmollamaija:
Mollamaija Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
Joo, sitä peruukkipäätä en voi tehdä, ainakaan omasta päästä. Mulla on meinaan kaikenlaisia fobioita tuollaisen suhteen(ahtaanpaikan, suljetunpaikan jne, varsinkin jos kyseessä on pää). Mä voin pitää kyllä kypärää, kun tiedän että saan sen pois :) Kipsiharso kuulostaa ihan ok. Tuo mies joka asuu mun kanssa samassa asunnossa, teki itselleen muovilevystä Kroenenin(Hellboy) maskin, siitä tuli erinomainen. Ollaan nyt yritetty saada sitä tulee traconiin näytille kyseisessä puvussa, kun olen ommellut sille jo uniformunkin, ja kaikki merkitkin siihen on laitettu. On vaan "arka" lähtemään. No onnekseen maski peittää koko naaman, ei tarvitse olla "näytillä" jos ei halua :) kuuma sille varmaankin tulee :D

:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Okei, no sitten :D
Kipsiharso on hyvä pohja, sen voi sitten päällystää millä haluaa.
Itse käytin sitä itsestään kovettuvaa muovailumassaa tiimarista.
Muovilevy kuulostaa myös hyvältä!
Ja mies mukaan coneihin~~ Yai! :D

:iconmollamaija:
Mollamaija Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
Mä olen käyttänyt tuota kipsiharsia moneen muuhun, just tänään esim. Tiimariin siis matka käy :)
Mies on ollut ennen ulkomailla asumistamme Etolassa töissä, siellä teollisuuspuolella, niin sillä on hanskassa nämä muovit ja kumit, miten mikäkin toimii :)
Suostuttelu coneihin on käynnissä ;)

:O Näyttää erittäin hyvältä! :D Sul on taito hyppysissä :D
Oli varmaan ihan mukavan lämmin jos kerta lämmittelit sitä WonderFlexiä päälläs :D Mut mietin vaan et jos se alkaa muotoutumaan vasta n. 70-80 C nii eikö se polta? O_o Vai oonko ymmärtäny jotain väärin? :D Ja toi millä oot vetäny noi reunat, esim. kuva 9, nii onko se ihan softista vai jotain nauhaa? :D (Sori nää pöljät kysymykset) ;D

:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Jei :D Kiitos!
Joo, jotain vajaa 100 astetta se sulamispiste on.
No kyllä se vähän polttaa! Mutta cosplay on tuskaa xD

Ja siis näissä kaikissa armoreissa on pelkästään wonderflexiä.
Se reunanauha on myös vaan wonderflexiä :D

itellä yksi cossi suunnitteilla ensivuodelle, mutta ei vaan tiedä mistä materiaalista pitäis alkaa tekemään. Tämä olisi aika hyvä vaihtoehto mutta kallis.
Reply
:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Kiitos! :D Joo, oikeastaan ei sen kalliimpi materiaali kuin muukaan.
Tähän koko armorisettiin (käsineet, olkapanssarit, kruunu, kengät, vyö, kylkipanssarit ja rintapanssari) on menny 120 eurolla wonderflexiä.

Brogox Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Hobbyist
no ei sinänsä kovin pahasti. Kamen Rider Kabuto, W tai OOO cossin tekisi niin siinä pitäisi olla jotain lujemmanpuoleista materiaalia.

:iconelffi:
Elffi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Joo, ei se oo paha hinta.
Ja wonderflex on kestävää. Voi ihan hyvin kieriskellä maassa ja tapella ja ei tää rikki mee :D
