    Ok, folks. So I have quite a large update to share with you all.

    First off, the coat is almost done. I saw BlazedStarbon finishing up her coat, so I decided to resume some progress on mine. And that, ladies and gentlemen is where I have impressed myself the most. I am so pleased with this thing, but there is still a lot to work on still. This is my first time sewing, so I couldn't be prouder.

    I hope you fellow guardians like it as much as I do.

    And here's my new shoulder armor:

    I'm pretty pleased with this one as well. Some of the seams opened up a little bit after heat-gunning and plasti-dipping, but I am still very happy with it.
    I tried my best to do some nice fine-detailing, and I think I succeeded in doing that.

    I also used my Dremel to smooth out and chamfer some corners for a cool dimensional effect:

    But the process was not without its difficulties. The big fin was super hard to secure at first, as it was connected by two very small contact points.

    I strengthened the fin by putting some screws in there. It worked pretty well, and I was surprised the screws didn't rip the foam.

    All in all, I'm super stoked about the final product. I'm seeing what it will look like, and I have a very good feeling about it. I should definitely be capable of knocking this project out before Jet City Comic Show in October.

    Thanks for looking, and I hope to see some of you at Jet City Comic Show!

    of course, pick up a copy of Destiny 2, guardians!

    That coat is amazing! (I'm cheating big time with mine. Just about finished here)
    Did you use a pattern for the coat? My mistake has been free-handing everything. :notworthy:

    You have some skills, my friend! That foam work is superb as well!

    Well, I used a pattern I bought from Jo-Ann's, made that coat out of muslin, and modified it a TON to fit what I wanted it to be. It's pretty much unrecognizable from the original pattern. I added a few seams, but removed and altered the old seams that I wanted to keep.

    And thank you. I tried to take it slow to make the coat as good as it can be with my skill level. I still have the other sleeve and the fuzzy collar to do, though. Those will be tough. And the pants...I'll just buy some. I have no idea what I'll wear underneath the coat for a shirt. I'll probably make my own Traveler t-shirt for the heck of it. I've been practicing with other t-shirt stencils with some fabric paints, because the coat has a blue and orange stripe across it that I will add. That will be tricky considering the quilted fabric...

    Once again, thanks for the compliments. I pride myself in my foam work. :p

    Great work on the coat. Hoping to get a picture in the light a little more, but from what I can see you've got some sewing skills to add to your arsenal. Keep it up!

    The blue and white hunter happened to be the 405th's very own Huntress217.

    And I also met up with Thom A293 (above) and PerniciousDuke.

    Duke was (sadly) costume-less...and I didn't take any pictures of him, sadly. Not entirely sure if he would appreciate me taking random pictures of him anyway.:p

    Anywho, after the costume contest (which I got honorable mention) Huntress (who earned 3rd place(y)) and I took some fun pictures:

    Overall, I had a lot of fun.

    Thanks for looking, everyone!
