Hello all,

 Made this costume for my GF for Halloween, took about 3 weeks and cost a ton, but that was becouse I didn't know what I was doing really, lots of hit and misses.

I was/am working on a working chain sword and will update the costume with better parts/detail as I get the chance. I hope to have everything completed for the NYC comic con in 2010.

I will be updating the bolt pistol, that one is just a repainted nerf type gun, but it shoots darts, the clip comes out and it has "shells" that eject after re-cocking the gun for the next shot

Not to be arrogant or anything, but did the armor i've made give you any inspiration?

i'm noticing alot of stylistic changes i made to the regular "design" that your using also [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />
if not, then it's a fun coincidence.
if i'm right though, well that's awesome,

what materials did you make it from?
i noticed the nerf longsword, funny that a friend of mine was recently telling me it may be a quick base for a good powersword!

well done [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

what was the chest piece from?

edit: fixed the typo on the title for you.

To be nitpicky, the correct correction would be Adepta Sororitas: -a is the feminine ending, -us is masculine.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/ninja.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ninja.gif' />

Very nice costume!

Clever use of nerf stuff (much safer plan than wooden weapons at a con, IMHO), and I LOVE the chain-belt; it really fits both this particular costume and the Sisters vibe really well![/I]

Well thank you for the compliments!

 Kommissar, you made a costume?!?!


All kidding aside, it's impossable to make a Sister costume and not be influenced by your suit. It pops up in every search on the subject, your work is top notch and so yes, in that way, I was inspired by yours...*bows down*


 The Power Sword was a quick replacement for the working chain sword
I wasn't going to finish in time. I saw it in toys r us and thought "yeah, that will do jussst fine."

 The chain sword is proving to be problematic, I thought I had it all sorted out, but the "chain" sags in the housing, so I have to rebuild it  with some type of guide to help hold the chain in place but not cause to much drag on the motor. I hope to have it done for NYC comic con 2010.

The Chest piece is made from a manquin bust, the kind used to show tee shirts. Cut off the neck arms and part of the torso and shaped it with a heat gun to fit.

The leg armor was made from plastic trash cans, cut out and shapped with a heat gun to fit, held in place with velcro.

The two hardest parts for me where the neck collar and the shoulders. I ended up using Craft foam for both, but am not please with either. What did you use to make yours?

thanks for the compliments, i'm just glad to see someones costume they done after my work, as i've had alot of people grumble alittle that since ive done it, theres now no point.. which i consider a bad approach to cosplaying 40k, do it for yourself and the emperor.

a moving chainsword? ambitious, mine will be strictly non-working, going for more visual than gadget.

the stuff i used to make my entire armor is called pvc expanded foam, we've got some mentions of it in our useful links thread [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Well, decided to work a bit on the Bolt pistol as the chainsword is still being a pain the arse.

 Still needs some fine tuning, but I'm liking the way it's going so far...


I want to beef up the back of the clip, looks wrong being that thin...


I have also started a quick "mock up" of a bolter based off the same base gun as the pistol. Just wanted to see how it would shape up..I think it's interesting.. I think it will become a Chaos bolter for an upcoming costume...
 I need to beef up that clip as well. Also it's hard to see, but there is a scope/site at the back end of the gun

Nice conversions! I think the handles could be a bit bigger, and the length to height proportions seem... off on the bolter, but the detailing is great!

Bolt Pistol is a bit too smooth to be Imperial, but otherwise, it's a great conversion.

Artificer Bolt-pistol?

I must say, these look awesome! What's the blaster you're using as a basis? I might make my own if they're available here in Australia...
