Managed to get everything finished the night before #mcmlondoncomiccon met some amazing people, can’t wait for the next one! Laser rifle is a mix of mdf, Eva foam from @poly.props , styrene, worbla and 3D printed parts I modelled in fusion. Suit was made by myself and @reb_is_making , following the tutorial by @brazen.and.bold , this definitely isn’t in my skill set! But I learnt so much working on this! The metal details were made by hand and in fusion the molded and cold cast. #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #fusion360 #crealitycr10 #creality #worbla #blackworbla
So as well as basically finishing the vault suit last night I also found time to get the rifle primed for paint, and had time this morning to put down the first coat! All of the foam is from @poly.props #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality #worbla #blackworbla

So I’m always a little nervous when I take stuff out of a mold, they always seem to look a little rough? But these came out beautifully! Cold cast with aluminium powder light buff with a scotch pad and they’re done! Love that sheen! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality #worbla #blackworbla #casting #demolding #coldcasting
So made some good progress today, first time making a firearm and first time using everything from foam to 3D prints to worbla! 4 days to go! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality #worbla #blackworbla
Made some serious progress on the #vaultsuit in the last week, got all the major panels sewn together, only the collar, zip and gold to go! Again I never would never have got anywhere near halfway through this project without my amazing costume consultant @reb_is_making or the incredibly detailed tutorial done by @brazen.and.bold #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
Ok so I know this is basically the same photo I posted last night, but in my excitement to glue all the pieces together I kinda forgot about how I was going to paint all the little dials and buttons? So after an hour masking, I’ve learnt my lesson! 😅 #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
I really wanted this thing to look as though it’d been about a bit so once the silver had dried I stippled some hairspray into certain areas before apply 3 coats of the final layer, now @chinbeard makes this look super easy! But I ended up using masking tape to rip off the unwanted paint! Love the effect though! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #robco #pipboy #pipboy3000 #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
So haven’t posted much lately, but slowly making progress on stuff! Finally got the #pipboy3000 to a point where I was happy to start putting down some paint! This is probably first layer of 3-4! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
So after a couple of days squeezing in sewing around uni, @reb_is_making and I have manged to get the panels marked out and the final test put together! Everything fits as it should and is looking promising for the final draft!!! Again thanks to @brazen.and.bold for the epic tutorial! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #sewing #sewingproject
Not posted for a while, my confidence and productivity got kind of knocked trying to sort out my fallout vault suit. Thankfully I found myself a sewing sensei in the form of @reb_is_making thanks to her I’ve got a solid base to work from, and can’t wait to crush it! Again thanks @brazen.and.bold for the epic tutorial! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #vaultsuit #robco #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #sewingproject
Seen as I’m currently buried under a crap ton of model planes, I figured I’d knock up a blueprint for my next build, thought I’d give @adskfusion360 a try and I have to say I much prefer it to what I’ve used previously! #fallout #fallout4 #fallout76 #vaulttec #vaultsuit #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
Scheduled programming might have to take a back seat for the next week or 2 as I’ve agreed to help out for an event in August. If I ever have to do another #airfix plane it will be a lifetime too soon! #bigginhill #spitfire #hurricane #1 :72 #modelmaking #scalemodel
There is no way I was going to make a #vaultsuit without making one of these! In actual fact, I started printing this months ago and decided to do the full cosplay after the #fallout76 reveal! #fallout #fallout4 #vaulttec #bethesda #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
Spent the day at LFCC today got home to this, over 400 followers!? Not sure how that happened but just want to say a massive thank you to everyone! I’m so honoured and humbled! #foamsmith #foamsmithing #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality
Finally finished! When I first saw the film I knew I was going to make this but never really expected it to look so good! Again, I didn’t design this I just printed it and finished it. #starlord #peterquill #guardiansofthegalaxy #gotg #marvel #mcu #cosplayer #cosplay #cosplaywip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting #crealitycr10 #creality #rubandbuff #thingiverse @thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:430184
After a bit of trial an error magnet shopping I managed to find some tiny beasts! Oh and also found a power stone! Not sure on the colour just yet, but you get the idea. #starlord #peterquill #guardiansofthegalaxy #gotg #infinitystones #powerstone #jetpack #marvel #mcu #wip #props #propmaking #propmaker #3dprinting
