Automotive Detailing

By on August 4, 2016

Most of today was spent getting some of the details on my shin pads done, since I like jumping around between parts of this project like crazy.

The links were primed with a rust-colored primer and then sprayed to death with a bunch of various metallic paints that I have…

Belt adjustments and trimming

By on August 1, 2016

I spent a bit of time taking measurements this morning and doing some rough designing of the belt. I think this is about right to fit my close-to-38″ waist, although it’s got about an inch of allowance for what I assume will be extra material I’m wrapping around my…

Straps and buckles!

By on July 30, 2016

Had a bit of a prototype run with the airbag, and I’m still not happy with it just yet. It’s quite a challenge to figure out ways to sew the fabric to emulate what they did in the film, especially since the stitching is all visible and in the…

Spent a bit of time refining how the front and back halves of the torso join up and I think I got something workable here.

Swag for a scepter

By on July 27, 2016

Two other bits of note for the day. First, I had the opportunity to go back into NYC’s garment district, and this time I went there with the mission of finding fun odds and ends for Joe’s scepter.

I don’t have a lot of great, clear reference imagery for what’s…

Printed fittings and pulled forms!

By on July 26, 2016

The printed right-angle pipe fitting seems to have worked out pretty well, all things considered!

I need to sand it a bit, glue the parts together, then XTC-3D the whole thing to give it a better finish, make it a little stronger, and maybe make sure it’s properly airtight… but…
