FOO's SEV progress

Post by DarthFOO » Tue Jul 08, 2008 9:26 pm

Well the shoes started it out, and I just finished my neck seal. So take a gander and tell me what you think. I threw in a shot of my bucket on with it, cuz I dig my lid!

Sev:
UK: Games Workshop Crimson Gore - This will have to be painted on by hand, since Sev's paint job is seemingly dried on blood, in an intricate pattern that should be carefully hand-drawn on with a soft pencil, then painted over. Games Workshop Paints are also available in the USA.
US: Tapestry Wine acrylic paint

(stay away from bright reds as they look like fake blood. Try to remember that real blood dries much much darker)

Looks like the Costume Reference Library entry is still under construction for Sev in the 501st Members Only area at CT.net. Here's the one for Boss, so this is a good start.
RC: Republic Commando Boss (EU) -Delta Squad


RC: Republic Commando Boss (EU) -Delta Squad must have the following:

Note: Game stills do not indicate any specific raised detail on the undersuit.

2. Black Gloves (gauntlet style) –Aviator gloves, etc

3. RC Neck Seal
Note -The neck seal has horizontal ribs, between 1/4" and a 1/2" thick. There is the 'bib' that covers the entire area within the neckline of the chest/back armor. The 'bib' should include the trapezoidal detail shapes and can be done with or without 3-dimensional features.

4. Armor consisting of:
(1) Chest
(1) Back
(2) Shoulders - Shoulder bells shall have recessed or attached resin detail in the centers.

neck seal looks cool.

Just one thing, I am not sure if it is the flash but the red may be too red. old blood is a bit darker looking

Yup I designed and built it myself. I used a "dickie" as a pattern, then used spandex for the chest and shoulders. I did 2 layers. On the bottom layer I tack stiched the craft foam trapazoids, then I pulled the second layer over and tack stiched again. Then I took the machine and went around each piece so that they were sandwiched between the layers and stuck out when you put it on. The actual collar is a spandex also with 1/2 inch cotton pipping from the fabric store. I measured the height based on pipping, doubled it and cut out a piece that matched the distance around the biggest part of my neck. then I sewed one half of a velcro strip on the bottom half. I repeat this process on the other end/ opposite side to allow the velcro to match up. This way when I folded it over the pipping could still be pulled through. Then I folded the material over then measured 5/8 and sewed a line across creating a tube. Then I ran the pipping through the tube. Repeated that 5 times and....vwala! I am keeping the collar and chest section seperate. I put on the neck portion, velcro it, then pull the chest section over and the spandex matches up perfectly. Now I sit and wait for my armor to be made my PA........waiting sucks!

Me too, we're in the same production run. I'm switching gears and changing over to Boss. I'm picking up my CCC Deece and pistol this weekend directly from Ed and my neck seal shipped out today from South Carolina.

Aaron,

Great job on the neck seal!!
While you wait for your armor, you should make several more of those neck seals and sell them to other costumers looking to do RCs..

Wouldn't be a bad side gig for you. I'm sure many people would be interested.

Think about it.

That's a good idea. I'll just need to figure out a fair price. One Hundred Billion Dollars....MMMWWaah ha ha (pinky to corner of lips). I may go ahead and do that. Anybody interested?

Well after some thought and talking to some other GLG members I have decided to go ahead and do a run of RC Shoes and Neck Seals. After running by the boys the price would be $50 for shoes + s/h, $60 for neck seal + s/h, or $100 for both + combined s/h. I will try to buy up the shoes that are the most common sizes, but having a list of requests would make it much better, that way I don't have FOO shoe emporium in my shop and no buyers...lol. So if you are looking for an RC shoe I'm your guy. Heck these would probably work for most clones from the stock photos I see.
