Back Armor/Flight Gear Progress 1
So, all the fancy stuff on the back of her soft armor that straps around her neck seems like nothing till the end of the anime where you see a fan like wing pop out. While it won't be that functional, I do have that whole piece in progress. I didn't want it to look like one solid piece, but an actually assemble piece of equipment, thus why I made each individual piece. Once again I used www.bioweapons.com as a guide. For the two triangular-esque pieces I started off with the heavy foam armor from motocross jackets cut to the shape I needed. Foam was added to the edges to round them off before a plaster mold was taken. The more square piece was started from craftfoam with layers of it as the trim and once again a plaster mold was made. Hot glue were the final product with spackle used to fill in the cracks. Coats of white spray paint are in process as is the wire detail. I do have the round piece made where the wing sprouted from, but it's not pictured. That was made from a wooden bangle bracelet painted white with a piece of the same heavy foam cut into a circle and wedged close to one side. Styrofoam was cut and glued inside to look like the phillups screw top. The tube you see was also from the plumbing isle. The ends were cut off since they had A-symmetrical ends with washers and all that. That will be the tube that goes around the neck and ends with the buttons that sat on the collar bone.
