i have some WIP shots of the pistol, but nothing written out i'm afraid.
if you follow the basic guide to my bolt pistol tutorial, you can take it from there, just cut shapes that make sense.
i'd be happy to answer any questions you may encounter while your doing it [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />
we should make a new topic for it, encase someone else needs some help.

A Sister fan??   Me???  Yep....just a little bit!!  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

I can't wait to see updates on the costume if you plan to add to it.  It's already fabulous....adding some intricate details will only make it even more mind-blowing!!

Oh don't worry...your work isn't disheartening at all.  As a matter of fact, I find it inspiring!!  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /> I love it when people as talented as you share their work and ideas.  It's what helps all of us grow, artisticly speaking.  
I just hope I don't annoy you too much when I bug you incessantly for ideas and advice!  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

When I decided I wanted to make my own Adepta costume, my Google search brought me to your dA account... which was the whole reason I joined dA, because I loved all of the stuff I found on there. I won't say I've been disheartened from making my own costume, but honestly? I know I could never make power armor that looks quite that awesome, so I've decided that Ophilia's outfit will be her "off-duty" digs. Well, not really off-duty... just lighter armor for greater mobility for everyday Inquisitorial business. Power armor is great when you know there's going to be a firefight - gotta protect my fellow Acolytes, who would have died many times over if we didn't have a Psyker for healing. But most people are a bit too intimidated by a Sister in power armor...

Don't mind me. I tend to ramble in narrative form. Literature is my art.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

So far, I've only got the boots and a black bodystocking to go underneath the rest of the pieces - which I haven't worked out yet. I've been searching for black corsets or corset tops that might pass for torso armor, but I haven't yet found anything suitable. I did but some silver chains at the craft store for my Chaplet Ecclesiasticus and perhaps to bind my Rule of the Sororitas, but I still don't know quite how large to make the Chaplet, nor what material to make it out of. I have yet to see if there's already a thread about it, or if I need to start one.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='cool.gif' />

If you want to go Sister but with light armor, may I recommend going as a Sister Hospitallier? They wear light armor, a dress/robe, and generally don't carry weapons. It's easier to make than a sister costume, with less armor and more sewing.

This might be out of your budge range, but it would make a good start:

My wife has one of their cloth corsets and really likes it.

And they do a variety of very nice SteamPunk accessories that could potentially be used for accessories.

Ah, but I'm trying to create a costume for my Dark Heresy character, and she is most definitely one of the Sisters Militant. Since my GM has declared that my power armor does indeed only function for a maximum of six hours before it needs recharging, I do need to have an alternate ensemble for when the power armor is out of commission.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Wow. Those are quite beautiful, but a bit out of my current price range. If I get another writing client that pays me like the law firm in my clientele does, maybe. For now, I shall drool over them.

In that case, you could make a suit of armor that's pared down. Smaller pauldrons, just greaves with no thigh plates, bracers by no elbow plates or upper arm protection, a wider tabard in the front and back, and fuller sleeves. You could still wear the corset and chest plate, but maybe not the full gorget. Maybe a cloak or cape in the colors of your convent, too.

Mmm, that could work. Thanks for the suggestions!

Now to attempt a sketch... if only I didn't suck at sketching. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

i've really wanted to share some of the improvements ive added to the armor recently, but been unable to get good shots of anything.
so here you are, the chest piece and leg armor have been, in my opinion, greatly improved.

Wow, looks great! Must be nice to be at the "tweeking" stage of a costume [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

I'm wondering, how did you change the chest piece? I can see you crafted the fluers again, but wat eales did you do?


Again, looks awesome,
Finnlock
