Looking great so far. Are you working from pep files or scratch built? If so did you get the files here on the OC forums? I'm asking because starting in September my wife and I are starting a SoB for her very own to accompany my Space Wolf.

Working so far from scratch. Taking knowledge learned from SCA Armor making, Casting and other costuming I have done over the years. this is truly being a test of my skills as I have almost always worked from some basic patterns.

I am a bit tall. about 5'11". Keeping the heels lower on it for a more military look and to add as little height to me as possible.

I would vote for the exaggerated Warhammer look high shoes.
The men are exaggerated masculine why should not women then be exaggerated feminine? Size is just awesome, a marines measures at least 250 cm ...
but it's just my opinion.

so between a lot of work in my way I have made some progress on the Armor. I have my grieve template done, got most of the shoes done, but I have the Gauntlets started and my second attempt to work on a chest plate. Also in the pictures is the neck piece I am also working on. things are coming along nicely, but I must admit there is a good bit of Trial and Error as Until this project I have never worked with Eva foam. I am used to using Weldwood though.

The Neck piece and the Gauntlets



The start of the breastplate.


also I have sourced the bodysuit I plan to use, but that will get shown much later on once I start showing the Armor as it gets assembled on me.

I think it's coming along nicely. I'm keeping an eye on your build because in a few shorts months I need to start one for my wife. Looks great keep it up.

Lupus: thank you for the feedback. I am trying to keep postings and pictures as I do things so that people can see how and why I do what I am for this build. the idea is to help others in the future.

Well I'm sure many of us appreciate you documenting your build seeing as there is a lack of SoB templates and what not out there. Keep up the great work

Sorry this has been quiet on my end here. Work has gotten really busy and in my way and I am also struggling with figuring out how I need to do the next things for the Costume. do not worry I will be updating it hopefully in the next 3 weeks atleast.

LarKin: thanks for sharing. My issues are more on how to attach the cups and do the basic chest area in the way to achieve the look I am after. I have the breast cups how I want them.
