The Boots (Part 2)​

I finally designed and printed the foot piece. It is one solid piece which, took me 35 hours to print. It barley fits on my printer.

Printing it was the easy part. The hard part was the attachment, to the rest of the boot.
I had the following requirements:
  • Needs to stand on its own
  • It should be flexible and not one solid thing, so I can walk in them naturally
  • It should not be glued to one pair of shoes, so I can use whatever shoe I like.
  • I still can put on shoes on my own, when dressing up
It took my quite some time to come up with a solution for these problems. I ended up attaching the parts loosely with only two buckles, and some support foam for stability. The buckles are attached to a short piece of elastic band, so it is moveable.
It can stand on its own, because the foam lays directly on the printed part. It has quite some weight, so I hope it does not wear off to quick or deform when I run in them a whole day.

To put them on, I first put on the calf part and then put on shoes. After that I can slide the printed piece above my shoe and attach it via the buckles to the calf piece. It still requires a bit of fumbling, but it works pretty good (at least for one foot, I have not done the other foot yet)

The Result​

There is also a LOT of padding inside the calf piece, because the proportions are simply inhuman. I went with the original scaling for all pieces which was a big mistake. But at least it looks pretty accurate that way.

Next Up​

This was only the left boot, so I still need to do the right one (well basically this could also be the right one as they are designed symmetrically).
I hope I get the other one done faster, now that I know how to do it.

Almost complete​

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that my cosplay is almost complete.
I asked my friend for another quick photo session and it was the first time since months that I wore the complete armor again.

My mannequin is also growing. In retrospect it was a good choice not to buy a regular mannequin, but only half a body and a hanger. Because with the hanger I can adjust the height pretty good. I guess a regular mannequin would be to short. I hope I can figure out a way to also attach the arms to the mannequin.

Mobility​

Walking feels weird and I always need to take care not to damage my printed parts, but it could be worse. I would complain much more about the mobility of my arms or the vision of my helmet.
The helmet is the only thing now which would keep me away from a cosplay con, because I definitely can't wear the helmet for more than a few minutes. I will have to improve it with some air conditioning.
Here is a video of me walking (no sound):


Next Up​

There are still few things missing like the codpiece. I think I will try to design a new one, because the piece which I have is a little bit small. It looks good on the mannequin, but it does not look good on me, because I am taller.

My to-do list:
- New codpiece
- Air conditioning for the helmet
- Paint the shoulders
- Apply clear coat on all painted parts
- Improve the back and paint it
- Attach arms to my mannequin
- Make the super shotgun as prop (almost forgot about weapons)
- Add bluetooth speaker to blast DOOM music
- More details etc.

The list is not ordered by priority, it is just a few things that I thought of right now.

Looks great! My helmet stays cool and clear, even in the warmer weather. I dremeled out all the vents, and glued in black covid mask material to hide the gaps. Although the foam might naturally be a little cooler than plastic.

The super shotgun model I used is really phenomenal, it took a long time to print but it couldn't be more convincing after I weathered it and did a little shimming with the hinge and safety. I think the modeler's name was Lilykill. He had an Eternal shotgun too with working extractors, but I'm not good enough with 3D printing to take that on. And I think the 2016 one is a sleeker design anyway.

I dremeled out all the vents
Well the vents of my helmet are all shut and I do not want to damage my collectors edition ^^. I will try to put some fans inside the helmet. If that does not help I might print my own helmet, the helmet I got is for doom eternal anyway.

The model from LilyKill looks good and the files are also not too expensive. I love the details of the model, with all the engraving.
But I already started to print the super shotgun from JohnnyDarling (aka Brendan Lautissier) on thingiverse. It is free to use and also comes with a hinge. I modified it a little bit and might upload a remix for it when I am done. The model has less details, but I always prefer something like this over too many details, because details always make painting more difficult.
There is also a model for the doom eternal shotgun on thingiverse, but I guess the super shotgun is more classy.

The Super Shotgun (Part 1)​

I have printed the classic super shotgun from DOOM 2016. As I already said I used this thing from Brendan Lautissier, which is quite good, but there was some room for improvement, that's why I edited it (I will upload a remix on thingiverse later).

The worst part about the original thing was the scaling. It was uploaded in a very high resolution and he did not said on which scale to print it, so I thought 50% would be a good size. But after printing the barrel and the handle I quickly realized that it is still way to big. Then I read in the comments, that people recommend 40% scaling. But it was too late for me to change it. So now I have this really big super shotgun. It weights around 1 kg and is 83 cm long!

One of my edits was to add holes a few neodymium magnets so, the barrel stays in place after loading it up.

Also added a little doom mark engraving. That is actually not part there in the game, but I thought it would look cool

Next Up​

The handle needs to be painted, but I will do that later, as I do not have the colors for it right now. But I like the idea of Brendan Lautissier to have the print layers visible as they remind of natural wood structure. He even recommends to just paint it with wood stain. Here is a picture of his work:

The last thing I want to add are some shotgun shells, which I want to design with special doom engraving.

Shotgun (Paint Job)​

I have painted the shotgun, I tried to use wood stain for a more realistic look, but I tested it on a failed print and it did not came out that good. That is why I painted it with "boring" plain brown color which I had lying around. Not super realistic looking, but definitely good enough.

Shotgun Shells​

I also designed shotgun shells, but they were hard to print. I did not wanted to paint them, so I split the shotgun shell into 2 pieces and bought gold and red filament. It does match perfectly. But no matter how I printed the brass head of the shells, there was always one side which was messed up. I learned some new tricks like concentric print lines and ironing for a super flat surface, but I just have not found the perfect settings and simply gave up and took the best of what I had so far.

As you can see on the pictures I also tried some engravings. But the engraving at the top was just horrible, so I only added the DOOM mark on the side.

Anyway here is the thingiverse link in case some one wants to print my remix of the shotgun.

Next Up​

I will probably print a wall holder for the shotgun as it is too big to store it otherwise. Cant decide between the "boring" version or the super cool version :D

progress is looking real good. For wood like painting i used some GamesWorkshop contrast paints mixed together.

Base coat primed with wraithbone and painted with a mix of snakebite leather (brown) and flesh tearers red. The pooling gives it a nice natural feel.

Looks great! What cons (if any) will you be wearing this at?
Thanks :) I have never been to a convention before, but I plan to wear this suit at the Gamescom in Germany (I am from Europe). This year it will take place from 24 to 28 August. So I've got only a month left to finish this suit up.
