the "pink" portion I know is Krylon "mambo pink"

I will have to check the rest.... I don't think it was claret wine.... I think it was http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Painter-s-Touch-2X-12-oz-Satin-Aubergine-General-Purpose-Spray-Paint-257419/202531889

Im really happy with how the blasters and the holsters came out.

The belt rigging is not quite accurate, but I think good enough for now.

interestingly... not a single stitch was used to make those holsters.
It is all chicago screws, rivets, and E6000 glue!
I made the template for the holsters out of cardboard, then transferred to leather, then molded and glued!


lots of fun.

a little more done on the helmet

I used rangefinder from KW. I did not want to permanently attach the one from TMA. In hindsight, I could have used the TMA one and used a N52 magnet.... maybe next time.












it will rotate down, just not on the fly.... I have to loosen a screw from the inside.

It was really important to me, to be able to detach the rangefinger for travel.

Looking good! What are the clips you used on the belt? The ones attaching the main part of the belt to the holster straps?

Hello derek, very nice job with paint and assembly! Smile

As regular member, which also helped with some Sabine builds, I would propose some tips for possible modification .... I hope they can help Smile

1. Chest armor shape

Depending on material, which you used on armor parts - is it possible to shape chest plates more? As you can see, those parts could be more fitting mainly on sides. You can also check another approved Sabines costumes, those ladies did a amazing job Smile

2. Shoulder straps

You can achieve even more accuracy with modifying shoulder straps. According to original source materials straps outer line should copy an inner line of shoulder armor.

Examples:





(sorry for pictures, which were just googled up ... Wink )

3. Collar

It is possible that LCJ will ask for detailed pictures regarding collar, because Sabine is using specific mandarin collar with open in front.


I think, it can also help if you will pull up hair for submission photos - some LCJ could have a problem with visible hair in back Smile

Anyway, your build look great and it is visible that you spend lot of time on it! Great job and good luck with approval process ! Smile

This looks amazing!! Smile

I am a judge for the category that Sabine belongs to. I must say that this looks great for approval, and all that I believe would need to be added is the accurate wig. As a recommendation, you can also make the small horizontal indentation in the top of the belt buckle Smile

thank you for the input!

I see that the straps over the shoulder are not accurate shaped. I will probably re-make those. Your eye for details is excellent!

In the above pictures, the chest armor is not yet attached. It is stuck in place with gorilla tape only.... I am still working on a snap attachement system > I think with the snaps that it will look better.
