About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Quite possibly the most difficult thing I've made in terms of planning, materials, props, etc. It doesn't look like it, right?
Thing is, this costume should be pretty basic to "generally" simulate, but I wanted to try for screen accuracy (which I'm still working on bleh). It's INSANE. The entire costume is technically a weird onesie: the vest is attached to the pants at those front straps, and the back bottom of the vest is actually the top of the pants rather than being attached to the vest? Also the quiver floats ...You get the point.
It's made out of Cordura, which is our best guess as to what the original was made out of though the purple color was a custom color job for sure. On the bright side, I'm totally waterproof! XD
The bow was completely custom sculpted and it's designed to actually snap out/fold. I ran out of silicone and wasn't able to cast the riser in time so the riser pictured is the original clay sculpt (and thus too delicate to fold), but I have every expectation that the final product will be able to flip out like a champ.
The arm guards and SHIELD patch are cast in Task 13 semi-rigid black resin which is SUPER COOL *A* I'm hoping to sculpt and cast all of the trim in this material!
The pants were hell. That is all.
- Personal Thoughts:
- AHAHAHAHA WHY DID I THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?
