BlackJack and LittlePip costumes.

Postby skinamulink » Thu Apr 04, 2013 8:31 am

For my first trip to Bronycon I'm making Two costumes, everyone's favorite LittlePip and BlackJack to accompany that. Here I'll be breaking down the process of doing so, for all who are interested and for anyone who wants to have a guide to doing it.

BlackJack :bwalk:
Spoiler: show
this one is first because its the most complex and the most complete at the time of writing.
weapons/equipment

weapons
For Blackjack's arsenal I chose the ever common path of airsoft guns. at this point in time I've collected Duty & Sacrifice, Taurus' rifle, and the combat shotgun. The starmetal sword is being worked on (I have a sword I'm stripping the paint from to modify) and I'm also planning work on trottenheimers folly, regardless of the fact it was lost. It's that awesome. no word on vigilance yet.

arms/legs
For her mechanical arms, I've gone through a lot of different plans before settling on one. I've decided to modify some riot armor! These specifically: arms legs

barding
Just some good old fashioned security armor.link

Pipbuck
And now the big part. The Pipbuck is going to be a custom app on a android tablet mounted to the left arm guard. The tablet is a JXD-S18 and is the perfect size for mounting on your arm. For BlackJack the app is going to be the Pipbuck Delta, with a cool blue interface and more stylized menus, along with slick animations and a central menu, instead of tabs like a Pipbuck Alpha.

general appearance
For the remaining appearance I've collected a black and red wig, some sunglasses, black gloves (her mechanical legs) and I've got my eyes on these contacts.

any parts I missed, didn't explain enough, or appear to have forgotten? Want some links? :bjshrug: drop a comment and ask!


LittlePip :lwalk:
Spoiler: show
not far enough to warrant writing anything up yet. :pipshrug: soon though.
