These are the top and pants used to wear underneath the armor to complete the characters' look.








The boots below are used to wear the armor boots of the character comfortably.

Proceeding onwards with fixing a commissioned Shockwave costume gone wrong. The individual did not complete his contract of which we agreed upon since the very beginning. I hope he suffers an agonizing life and later on a strenuous, prolong death for wasting my time and money on his sorry, worthless, pathetic, dishonest ass. Whatever you do don't make this guy your commissioner. He goes by the name John Wieger with email address jwieger82@yahoo.com or cylonproject2000@gmail.com (his facebook account http://www.facebook.com/#!/john.wieger) and has an accomplice goes by the name of Michael Wilson with email address of wanderer8212@hotmail.com . John Wieger uses the paypal account info of Familytreeclimber@Yahoo.com. Whatever you do stay clear of this guy with no integrity, honesty or skills! He will use his clinic visits (due to his disorders)as an excuse. I'm giving a heads up to all of you so that he doesn't waste your time... just stay away from him, please. ...Anyways I'm currently fixing that idiots' mistakes.



The following are steps taken to fix the boots.


Below are the boots given to me as is from the troublesome commissioner. The side bulbs weren't even attached to the boots. Poor craftsmanship indeed.

I first cut out the boots and set them out to re-size and reshape them properly.

shockwave_costume_leg1



Next I focused first on doing the back of the legs. I cut out the pattern from lacquer purple fabric.

Next each pieces were sew to create a pillow casing effect to wrap each foam piece with. Later each piece were hand sew together. Below are the photos that show the complete part of the back portion of the legs.

Further leg patterns then sewn.

And that is how Animated Shockwave boots are made. ^_^

This is the continuous of fixing a commissioned Shockwave costume gone wrong. The individual did not complete his contract of which we agreed upon since the very beginning. I hope he suffers an agonizing life and later on a strenuous, prolong death for wasting my time and money on his sorry, worthless, pathetic, dishonest ass. Whatever you do don't make this guy your commissioner.

Below is the original given unfinished work of the chest plate of the costume. Fuuuuccccc.... would be the right word for this whole pile of sit this commission did. Anyways onwards with fixing this.

shockwave_incomplete_costume_shit 001




First what I did was to undo the shoulder plates from the rest of the chest plate and re-size them. Clearly the commissioner had no fucking tape measurement. I was very clear with my measurements. Anyways re0sizeded and reshaped the shoulders to appear like those of the character. I gave them slit pockets so they can connect and click together with the rest of the chest plate. I will show you what I mean by that later on in the month.

shockwave_costume_shoulder_chest2






Below are the photos of the fabrics cut out in the patterns. As with all of the pieces remade, each piece of the individual part uses two fabrics to cover up as pillow cases.


shockwave_costume_shoulder_chest3






The following series of photos shows the detail opening left after sewing the pieces through the sewing machine, before wrapping the foam piece like a pillow case.

Next are the photos that show the pieces wraped individually with their fabrics. Again it takes two of the same fabric patterns to cover up one foam piece. These foam pieces have their fabric coverings pulled onto them.

The following photos display the finish shoulder plates. These include up close detailing of the shoulder plates.

As you can see clearly... this is not a finish product of the tank track shoulders of Animated Shockie. Clearly this individual is a slothful unskilled individual when it comes to creating costumes.


Below is how it should have been done.

shockie_costume_shoulders

Above photograph shows the details of the tank track shoulders of the character. THIS is a nearly done product. Pieces only needs to be sewn together and further details will be added through paint.



shockwave_shoulderssewn

One shoulder piece completed. Shown side by side with unfinished piece.


shockwave_shoulder_pieces_unsewn

Above unsewn shoulder pieces displayed together to show how each one fits together.



shockwavecostumeexample_how its_sewn_within

Above displays how items are sewn within using sewing machine. One section is left alone. This is so that it is flipped inside out to insert the form piece in and sew the opening close.



shockwave_opening_sewn

Above displays how piece is sewn together completely.





shockwave_shoulderpiece_side

Above is shoulder piece side.


shockwave_shoulderpiece_side_opening

Above displays the comparison of the different sides. You need one having an insert hole and the other complete. The hole is for the arm to insert within the piece. You'll need two pieces with holes (for two arms) and two pieces without as they will be the outside parts.


shockwave_compare_left_right

Show above demonstrates the comparison of left and right side of the shoulder pieces.

When doing the fabric pieces and sewing them together, make sure to leave the inner part of the pieces open/alone so to wrap the purple fabric around the form piece of the chestplate frame... as shown in the photos.

I always wanted to complete this but never had the time or date for it. Finally I'm more focused to do this project that had been in the works since 2008. Now that I'm ready to work on it, I'm redoing some of the pieces and even changed which Bludgeon version I want to go with. Originally I was focused on making my Bludgeon costume based on the DreamWave biography photo of Bludgeon, shown below.

bludgeon


I will now redo some of the armor pieces I made and do a Bludgeon costume based on the pretender shell shown on the cover of the comic book made by Devil Due... GI Joe vs Transformers Black Horizon 2nd cover, as shown below. Though I am going for a more zombie appearance of the character.

2500158-bludgeon_gijoe_vs_transformers_black_horizon_2_cover



I will be showing the materials used and the steps taken to make this costume. I may also show my weight loss process to wear this costume. I want to enhance the appearance of this macabre pretender shell. Keep in mind the methods used for weight loss isn't for everyone and the propose of it is to enhance the the appearance of the costume. Cosplaying is an art form like acting is. Many actors go on extreme diets to play the roles given to them. I've given myself this role so I want to do the very best I can. There are too many US cosplayers that take cosplaying too lightly and just dress up without regarding their body form and shape with that of their chosen characters, which is why they are hit with so many ridicule and insults. Anyways wish me luck and enjoy my process.

Below are photos of the nails used and how the helmet looks like with the reinforced nails. It's sooo much better. I used three nails from the inside of the helmet to stick through the ears that were glue to the sides. The nails are to attached the ears further to the helmet.

Shown are the photos taken of each step I took to make the Shockwave Costume armbands. The last pic showing a painted foam block is the arm given to me by the weak, lying commissioner. It may not be shown here but the arm pieces given to me were too large to be wearable by anyone of my height and size. They were measured incorrectly by the commissioner, even though I had sent out my precise measurements over 4 times to him. Seriously, he is clueless on how to use a f*cking ruler or tape measure. These arm bands are for an abnormally huge giant. Luckily I was able to save them. I kid you not I had to cut this down to size by 6 inches. The arm bands were 6 inches too long!
