19th September 2013: progress 8 - contact lenses these are the contacts i got for Liara which shows how they compare to her own eyes.
They are Dolly Eye lenses in blue
19th August 2012: progress 7 The finished costume. I added the belts and straps made from thick rubberised vinyl.The'buckles'are made from 6mm foam. They are all simply decorative and bear no stress.
12th August 2012: progress 7 these are the upper arm armour. These will be glued to the upper arms of the costume with contact glue. They are made from 6mm eva foam and thin fun foam.the studs are made by popping out discs with a hole punch
11th August 2012: progress 6 back of costume showing silver lycra piping on the 4 way stretch pvc.the lycra stretches with the pvc. A hidden zip sits down the center back.
8th August 2012: progress 5 Bust armour is made from heat moulded Wonderflex with various pvcs glued on top.a strip of grey matt pvc is glued and sewn under the wonderflex to simulate the part of the costume that is under the armour.
such a find the carbon fibre pvc. This is why my version of the costume is true red as i wanted the reds to match. the black part of the costume is sewn through the wonderflex using a leather needle and pliers lol
2nd August 2012: progress 4 I glued some 4 way stretch matt red pvc to non stretch red pvc so as to create some raised profile in the panels. Then i glued those panels to the silver ( i sewd some of the silver down in places it would be hidden by the red on top.
I used contact glue for this
The leg straps are then glued and sewn under the silver panels.
29th July 2012: progress 3 Same technique as described with front armour. This is just to show i did the accurate back of the armour with the butt plate included Next will be gluing on the red panels to the armour.
27th July 2012: progress 2 the white here is thick pleather sewn onto the legs, then i glued carefully a layer of thin silver pvc onto the white. This made a smooth flat surface and raised appearance of thigh armour.
24th July 2012: progress 1 Work in progress on the catsuit. You can see the lower half of the 'coat' is actually a skirt attached to the catsuit. The upper half is permanently attached to the body with a zip up the back of the costume.
