Hope I’m posting this in the right place.
Officially starting my ODST build this week so this’ll be my work in progress thread. Starting on soft parts first then I’ll move onto the armor.

This is my bucket from Branfuhr Studios. Primered it black to better see any imperfections that need to be corrected.

Got this shirt to serve as donor fabric for the undersuit sleeves.

Got boots, Sean Bradley’s ODST gloves, and a big piece of leather coming in soon. Need to get some more fabric and pants for the rest of the undersuit. More updates to come.

It’s a very under looked part of a bunch of costumes I’ve seen. I understand though, I absolutely hate all the sewing

Where did you get the boots from, and if you don't mind sharing, how much were they?
Got them on Amazon. Searching jungle boots should get you results. Wouldn’t recommend buying the absolute cheapest ones though as the quality is usually terrible. These costed me $60usd. Word of caution, if you’re not used to these kind of boots take your time breaking them in. Jungle boots are notorious for being rough on feet

Those are the exact ones. Wasn’t sure if it would be available in every area so I just let everyone know what kind of boots they are

Got some more material for the undersuit today.

It’s undershirt (A-shirt/tank top, whatever you call it) material. It’s the most cost effect fabric that matches the material around the elbows/knees in the game. Probably gunna have to double up on it to make sure it can’t be seen through. Just need to get some black cotton twill and black jeans and I can start putting all the soft parts together.

More material updates and a quick question.

Question first. How many magnets would it take to hold a 3D printed ODST shoulder piece? I was thinking like 5 rare earth magnets. Wanna make sure it doesn’t get bumped off.

Found these at Walmart. $20 for both items

These trousers happen to be the off-color black that you see in-game. They also have hidden back pockets. These won’t really need much modification except around the knees.

Generic dryfit shirt for the armpit areas. Figured dryfit material would be best for that sweaty area.
