Now I just need the tut on how to sew.........
we are in the same boat my friend.
also.... subbed. Can't wait to see your vids.
Very nice work.
Sub'd as well.
Reading through this has been very inspirational. I have negligible sewing skills. ((I have sewn on a patch once... ))
I am going to be definitely following this going forward, as I have many plans for future builds!
Keep up the good work!
I seriously can't imagine that. Contact cement is permanent - something must have gone wrong there. It shouldn't just fall off! You should be able to tear foam apart from it and not it just falling off...
I have many parts glued onto my undersuit - wore it multiple times and as I said, I would rather destroy the foam by ripping it apart instead of it falling off...
Both E6000 and contact cement are permanent...
I just realized, electricknite, that you're in Calgary. I'll see you at Edmonton Expo in September then? Yes?
FANGS I haven't actually decided yet. It'd be fun but I would have to find a place to stay.
If I didn't have a house full already, I'd absolutely invite you to stay. I have a bunch of Calgary 501st with permanent reservations....hahahaha Do you know Kris? Jedi Ranger is in Calgary as well.
Also...I've moved this thread to the Halo Soft Parts forum but I've left a re-direct for a month so that people won't lose track of where it is!
haha its cool, thanks for the thought. ya I know him and sounds good!
Well I'm thinking in my wife's case it was the fabric, I even tried looking for a tag to read the exact material but there was no tag, she bought just a regular body suit off amazon. I wish I could find out exact material, because contact cement doesn't work on it unfortunately. I'm going to be starting my Buck undersuit soon and thinking of sewing it but do you think CommanderPalmer that contact cement will adhere large pieces of pleather on your standard fabric?
Personally I used E6000, but I've seen multiple people use contact cement and after wearing it on cons they had also no problems at all. All morphsuit cases. E6000 is similar to contact cement.
No idea how it is with pleather tbh, never tried it, but depends on how the inner surface is when you're gluing it. Personally had no problems at all with EVA foam.
This undersuit build looks amazing!
