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. He goes by the name John Wieger with email address firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One shoulder piece completed. Shown side by side with unfinished piece.
Above unsewn shoulder pieces displayed together to show how each one fits together.
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.
Above displays how piece is sewn together completely.
Above is shoulder piece side.
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.
Show above demonstrates the comparison of left and right side of the shoulder pieces.
Final touches to the shoulder pieces put together.
Above: The two pieces that will make up the front and back portion of the chestplate, along with the top portion where the head will squeeze through.
Above: detailed front and back chest plate.
Above: Pieces cut out to be sewn together with the proper colors.
Above: Another view point of the pieces seperated to later be put together when the pieces are given the proper colored fabrics.
Above: The photographics of the top portion of the chestpiece where the head goes through put together and done.
Above: The chestpiece frame patterns cut, sewn and then attached to the frame form piece to be covered by the purple fabric. 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.
