Uniform - technically not exactly a model
Just a quick post showing my progress to date on my Year II uniform. I actually made it a few years ago, but it always needed a few fixes here and there. With the upcoming Alpha convention here in Los Angeles in September I decided to dust it off and make the fixes I always wanted to make.
So, the whole thing is made from scratch, with the exception of the red AM patch and the shoes. The commloc is a scratch build from earlier this year. The stun gun is a heavily modified squirt gun I bought back in the 70s.... I may eventually upload a few pics of the gun to show all the mods. The basic shape was close to correct, but the handle was too squared off, the barrel area was too short, and so on.
The beige color of the uniform has always been a real pain.... figuring out what color it was in real lighting vs. what showed up on screen. I really didn't like the on-screen washed out gray that it usually appeared, so I went with a more beige color. It's just a tad bit darker than I would have liked, but it was the closest I could get at the time.
Now if only I could learn to pose more naturally for the camera.
Next up, if I dare try it, a second season jacket.
