Thread: Jackal Costume Complete

  1. By request, and by sheer logic when I think about it, I am posting my finished Jackal photos right here, on the first page.



    Here's my gallery of them:

    And actually, the same shots are at my deviantart, but I think you can download them bigger. So here they are if you are interested:

    I know there aren't that many. I didn't have the best person with me to take many photos, unfortunately. Also, I was fortunate enough to get photos taken by a photographer, (which was necessary to enter the contest) and buy the three best ones. Sadly, my scanner is a POS so I had to retouch the colors in photoshop. For some reason it made them look like they were from the 80s or something.



    However, in the future if I come across people who posted pics of me, or if/when I don the suit one last time to take some more photos, I will be sure to post them.



    Here's also a youtube video with a summary of work in progress pics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqTdsowdzFE



    Anyways, ACEN was a blast. I had so much fun there. I saw a lot of really great costumes. I didn't win any contests, sadly, but I did get enough ego-boosting comments to make my day, including one person who quoted the family guy scene: "JACKAL! IT'S A JACKAL! Is it a JACKAL? JACKAL!" It was a lot of fun. For most of the time I had my mask off, due to the low visibility. Also, by the end of the day, I had really torn up my feet from those stilts. They were easy to walk in (not so much for stairs) but the shoes I used for them were worn out and I was stupid enough not to wear socks...so yeah. Yay for blisters.



    Other than that, it was a great experience. I'm trying to think of ideas for future costumes. I'm a little hesitant on the Elite, at least right away, due to the stilts. Well, actually, more due to the combination of stilts + low visibility. I will have to make sure that I have excellent visibility with the Elite. Otherwise, it's hell.



    I met up with a couple chiefs. Sadly I didn't get a picture with either of them. But I made some new friends, acted crazy, and had a blast. Conventions are fun.

    Maybe its just me, or are you really building up mussel tissue on the skull of the Jackal !?! Because that shows true craftsmanship of sculpting!

    ;; Thanks! Yeah, I kinda obsess over detail. I want it to look really vicious. Or at least cool.



    Thank you, everyone! I'll be sure to update you guys with progress.

    Wow great detail. I wish I had a quarter of your talent lol. Good Luck though you probably dont need it. And I'd like to know what your going to do about a shield. Now this is just an idea from me but maybe you cut a lot of plexiglass and shape it into a circle then use this spraypaint that fogs windows or the plexiglass.Then attach leds all around so like the dull plexi glass will absorb the blue light and light up but that is just an idea but Im not sure really.

    Glass fog stuff. That's a great idea! I was planning on taking lexan and using LEDs (which I need help with from my brother, who knows his electronics) to light it up. I was thinking of airbrushing the tiny purple polygons on the shield for detail. That way, it will give it the right hue as well.

    If you look veeeery closely you can see them. It's hard to see, but they're there.



    My only problem is...I am broke at the moment. And I don't have a job. ;_; My dad is going to help me shape the lexan, and help me build stilts (I am not a carpenter in any way shape or form). I still gotta give him the blueprints for the stilts, but yeah.



    So now I just have to raise some money for the shield. The armor will be easy. Cardboard and paper tape. Piece of cake.
