Well, I've made the first casts of my chestbox. There were a couple hiccups as I figured out the ins and outs of the mold but I think that they came out fairly well. Just need a little sanding and they're good to go.

I've also got all of the greeblies printed out and the belt box, though I haven't cleaned them up yet or rounded the edges on the belt box.

I had to order more silicone for the helmet, and that should be here any day.

Chestbox...



Chestbox with greeblies (optional chestbox details not filled in)...






Chestbox greeblies...









Helmet greeblies (and one flak vest greeblie)...








Belt box...







Regarding the chestbox greeblies, there are a few that I don't have pictures of. These are the ones I've made previously for my last scratch-built chestbox. The molds are already made but I haven't made any resin casts of them lately so I don't have any recent pictures of them yet.

More pictures and information is on my blog... http://blue-leader-cos.livejournal.com/8504.html

Chestbox and flak vest greeblies are finally done! I had a little hold up on a couple of them because they were coming out right, the silicone wasn't making a good mold because the parts are so tiny but have a lot of detail. But I finally got a decent mold.

And lastly, the Y-wing pilot vest greeblies...


I also went back and improved one of the helmet greebiles using a clearer reference I found. The picture I took is crappy but here it is anyway. Though it's hard to see in the picture, the tip of the cone-shaped end has a hole on it and the larger rounded section below the cone is ribbed.


My cosplay blog has more information, more pictures and pricing information. Clicky

So that means everything is ready to roll and I should be able to knock out the last two orders fairly quickly!
