    I finished the main part of the boot done, unfortunately I will have to extend it to fit over my shoe. KIMG1432.JPG KIMG1431.JPG KIMG1430.JPG KIMG1428.JPG KIMG1427.JPG
    The boot does not even fit when I don't have a shoe in it. Any recommendations for how I should extend it?

    Looks like you're missing a strap across the front of your ankle and the guard for the top of the boot. Those definitely help with keeping everything together but when I was building mine I found that to make everything stay in scale and still function I had to embed a shoe into the boot and build around it. I'll edit a picture into this post later on.

    I am aware of the missing peices, I want to add them after I extend it. As of now I just need suggestions for what part I should extend it at.

    Any time you extend something you weaken it by adding more seams, so keep that in mind. Otherwise general rule of thumb is to pick the flattest area. If it's in the middle great! If it's on a side then you have to extend the otherside too.

    For my boot I extended it on both sides right where I drew this line.

    But I also did pep, so I can't speak for sure with foam..

    So I did some messing around with foam and plastic models yesterday. Before I knew it I had another gun. I haven't painted it yet but it will be dark green and gold.

    Edit: this was the original gun, found it lying around.

    Just from the thumbnail the first thing I thought was a pipe pistol from Fallout 4.
    That's some slick Frankensteining.

    Thanks PaiganBoi, unfortunately I overslept today so I couldn't go buy paint.

    I did however get to go to Goodwill and pick up a jacket to make a warlock cloak sometime during the summer. I don't want to take on the entire warlock cosplay now though because I haven't finished my spartan yet.
    Here is the jacket on my sister's dressmaking dummy.

    I also extended the boot enough to at least fit my bare foot, it mat need more later.

    I also was busy with consoles. I found a good deal for an original Xbox at Goodwill. It needs a video cable but it seems to work otherwise. I tried once again to fix my disc drive for 360 and failed again.

    I have a few questions, should I seal my chest plate or cut it and add clips/REM first.
    Also how should I do that? Cut just top bottom or both?
    Finally, does anyone have any warlock coat patterns? Or female Hunter, since my sister asked for my help with that cosplay.
    Thanks in advance.

    It depends on where you're adding the clips in my opinion. I also like using Velcro on foam tabs to help with alignment of plates so if you have an image with where you're planning on splitting things it may help.

    I know BlazedStarbon was working on a warlock at one point and she may have a pattern floating around from that build. OH GREAT CANADIAN RCO, I CALL THEE FROM THE DEEPS.

    Lieutenant Jaku for a coat pattern (if you plan to make one from scratch), JoAnn’s tends to have decently priced patterns for sale. Unfortunately, we don’t have that craft store up in Canada, so my warlock base was free-styled.

    With no prior sewing experience, I took an old sweater and used that as a marking for the overall coat shape, and manually sizing sleeves that were pinned to my own arm.

    Recently, I obtained a dressform mannequin, for ease of pinning and fabric placement.

    Since Destiny’s designs are so unique, your best bet would be to alter a base coat with a similar shape, or alter a coat pattern that can be found online. I doubt it would help, but the link to my warlock build is on my profile page. There are other warlock builds that have been posted as well. :)

    Check out mblackwell1102’s warlock on page 2 under the ‘Non-Halo Costume’ subforums. His build is more concrete for patterns.

    BlazedStarbon thanks, I think I might do that. Joann's doesn't have any guy patterns unfortunately, but I have a jacket that I can use.

    Proof that I haven't been doing nothing.
    I just haven't been doing as much as I would like.
    I have been working on sealing my chest piece as well as cutting the visor to the right size.
    KIMG1669.JPG KIMG1668.JPG
    I have also been trying to get my printer working. The first print went well but the later ones didn't.

    They were all the same setting so no idea what happened.

    Without seeing the models or your settings I'm guessing it's an issue with your supports and possibly flow multiplier based on the walls being a bit wispy in some parts and possible under-extrusion on the arms of the robot dude. Do you have some screen grabs of the settings and models so we can hivemind troubleshoot?

    Got the shins from Halo 2 odst and added a few details based on concept art. Also the halo 2 anniversary odst have different shins (possibly same as Halo 3)
    KIMG1705.JPG KIMG1704.JPG KIMG1701.JPG
    Now for hardening, I have to go buy more resin.
    I also plan to start a shoulder tonight before doing the other boot (and finishing this one.

    I just noticed something that bothers me alot. Halo 2 and 3ODST take place at the same time.
    SO WHY IS THE ARMOR DIFFERENT?
    And why does it bother me so much?

    I have a problem with any of the armors changing from game one to the next at all! I chalk it up to designers getting inconsistent and needing to "earn their pay!" ... ridiculous. don't change the armor, make it with better resolution. Gosh! haha

    So yesterday I made and sealed a shoulder piece and it's painting day today.
    KIMG1709.JPG KIMG1717.JPG
    Got test peices with different base colors
    KIMG1720.JPG
    This is my weathered one so far
    KIMG1726.JPG
    By the way for those of you who did odst costumes (TurboCharizard PaiganBoi I'm talking about you guys) how did you attach the medical ID on the shoulder and what material did you use for it.
    Thanks!
