So I finished the attachments to the shoulder pieces of EVA foam. As usual, you have to remember to take your time, cause if you donít accidents happen.

Yeah, right after I set the hot glue and attached it to one of the pieces, while pressing them together I realized I had pressed the wrong side of the piece onto the EVA foam.

Well it was too late for that piece. I was able to quickly fabricate another nylon snapped attachment piece and installed it on the other shoulder piece.

It all worked out and after cooling, I did the snap attachment test onto the shirt and everything snapped, fit as it should. Also, the pieces successfully detached with no damage to either the pieces or the shirt.

Iíve got to set up the snaps for the briefs which the top section of the torso attaches to as this will keep the shirt from pulling out/away from the briefs. The golden power belt covers where the dirt/brief attachment occurs.

Itís almost time to work on the body decorations.

I had to bring home The Lady Sif from my office to help me with the airbrushing portion of my outfit. I wonder what role the great Lady Sif shall play in creating the garb of the Black Son of Odin?

I picked up these cups at 7-11 back when the Thor movie was about to come out. I got all four complete sets released as seen below.

A7D6044B-E379-434B-B6B4-1E2F325E6661.jpg

They reside in my office at work (as do countless other collectibles) each set includes a large fine photo cup, a smaller holographic cup and the two big characters include a statue figure cup and a straw with mini figure attached to it. Only Thor and the Destroyer had a four piece. The straw is in the big cup.

So last night and today I worked on creating the templates for the body armor that will be used for airbrushing. It was a lot longer and more involved than I thought it would be.

You have to constantly think and rethink; you only get one shot at it. If itís wrong, there potentially goes the shirt or briefs. Also, the hopes that it properly lines up so that itís not covered by the power belt that fits u def the bottom of the torso pieces and the top of the brief pieces.

First I did hand drawn concepts for measuring and refinement purposes.

I had a spare shirt that went bad because my initial cape attachment system went to hell. I used that shirt for a visual test shirt. I taped it and created a working visual representation of torso placement.

FF1C1DBC-A9C5-4B2A-92D9-20DC8925AF9C.jpg

I then created and finalized my paper template based on the test shirt test visuals. I did have to make changes, but they were minor on both the top and bottom sections. You can see those changes scribbled out.

BA12AB9A-67CC-47C6-9480-E118456A1381.jpg

Both temples are cut out and completed. Iím hoping to get to airbrushing today.

I/We will find out soon if it all pays off soon enough.

Well I’m finished with the top. I was reminded how difficult it is to airbrush onto synthetic materials. I have probably no less than 12 layers of first sprayed opaque white then a large portion of opaque Sky Blue.

Shirt readied on the shirt board and placed on the easel.

36DB7172-18C1-48AE-97C6-09C787821CEA.jpg

Template applied with spray adhesive, white base layer is sprayed, then first couple of layers of Sky Blue are sprayed.

F2D57C1A-39EF-428B-8830-4677FEEDB186.jpg

Now more layers of Sky Blue are sprayed. I realized I didn’t put enough spray adhesive onto the template back (or I didn’t attach it soon enough) it began to lift. So I had to use my fingers best as I could to prevent too much over spray.

EF68F35C-95B8-496F-BFE0-5AF849C57F7C.jpg

I removed the template to find the expected overspray.

A16279B5-F475-44CA-A075-1FBAC2F36110.jpg

I did the best I could to carefully cover up (or at best mute) the overspray by spraying opaque Black over the overspray. This is the finished result.

1F215936-BC0D-46D8-8535-6F16DAC632C9.jpg

I lightly heat set it with a heat gun. I’ll let it air dry and heat it again tomorrow. My main concern now is that it stays pliable and doesn’t crack.
I really wanted to have this done by “ silk screening, but, they won’t do it unless by volume and they won’t use items you give them. You have to buy the garment from them. I couldn’t find anyone who had the size or style of shirt or briefs I needed. Oh well.

Next I’ll spray the briefs and apply some of the things I learned to that. The briefs are a whole different beast. Can’t for them on a shirt board so I’ll have to make a temporary form out of cardboard to properly fit/stretch the briefs as needed so the template can be applied.

So with my worst fears realized, the airbrushed work on the synthetic shirt began splintering and cracking; well, ainít that some shit!

So, lesson learned. I searched for a high cotton shirt and briefs (no fly type ) with the athletic cut and size I needed for my outfit. I found them on Amazon 90% cotton! I also needed more opaque Sky Blue paint, you guessed it, Amazon.

I took off Wednesday so I could finish off all my left over work for the Con. I had one shot to get this right.

Made a new stencil for the shirt, attached it with spray adhesive and masked off the shirt. Did the same for the briefs.

00A9F1F4-3AE8-459C-B85E-DB6AF473093A.jpg

Put down several light layers of white followed by white/sky blue followed by solids sky blue; All opaques so good coverage. Thank you Createx airbrush paints. I was airbrushing both top and bottom pieces at the same time, layering each with the same colors. It was a great process.

4F97EE02-3BF2-418C-A5F6-11FDED54FE6E.jpg

Dried everything and began to remove the protective layers and the stenciling. Both the top and briefs came out great. Thanks to their high cotton content, the paint absorbed onto/into the fabrics as it should have.

CEBA371F-E711-4C20-ABC0-99D97F6ABFFA.jpg

With good cotton items I was able to high heat set everything at about 325 degrees making it permanent and washable. I decided to try them on with the outfits blue pants, golden power belt and shoulder pieces. I think it all came out very good.

0A74E203-0248-4AA7-BE2C-C025648D7245.jpg

Also, I shaved down to skin as I do just before NYCC so there I a look at the difference in me here and on the other page!

Well itís now Thursday morning, 12:35am and Iím waiting for some laundry to finish drying so I can pack it up for the trip later today.

We made it to NY and we are checked into our room and had good Ol McDonalds for dinner.

Gonna make some minor alterations to the outfit that I wasnít able to do at home as my Daughter wasnít available to help me with and it takes two people for the nature of it. Hope it turns out good.

And it was the F Line Train that took us to our hotel.

39346FDB-064A-4A3F-B4F5-5E0F2A8E8AD8.jpg

And here is the happy Father/Daughter team all smiles in the NYC subway!

25BCFBE9-2E19-408E-989E-222761CB75EE.jpg

Also, I upgraded and got a new wig with really good hair and my Daughter is gonna show me how to prep it by shampooing it, then the conditioner and we will dry it, and brush it out and it rests on a mannequin head I got for it.

I spent well over $100 for it and thatís a lot for cosplay, so, itís an investment and Iím gonna take care of it.

Tomorrow morning itíll be get up and hit the gym quickie time, face painting time, cape and wig time, hand painting time, boot strapping hammer and sword prepping time.

Then, itís GO TIME!

So we woke up and I went straight to the gym to get my swoll-on before getting showered and dressed.

Got back and woke up my Daughter so we could begin changing our identities. As part of her MCU Gamora, my daughter began painting herself green. She did face, neck and hands.

1FCE1292-CB2F-4B6D-A220-99711D53942E.jpg

So I told you about me and my $ wig and my Daughter who has naturally long hair told me not to worry that she was gonna work her magic on my wig to make it into what you see below which I can only describe with three words FAB-U-LUS! That joint was silky smooth to the touch. Feathered out to resemble that look worthy of a God! It was some Buttery Shit Yo!

6C899B35-62D8-47E1-86D8-F99EB684C4EC.jpg

Here is my Daughter, with her lovely hair and getup, ready to go.

FB3432E1-C65D-4B97-940D-FC2E4375910F.jpg

Dad was ready to go as well. All the work I put into the changes on my outfit this year really paid off!

We are about to descend upon The NY Transit system as our cosplay selves.

we also found time to make it to the following panels:

on Hulu, Marvels Runaways

on Prime, Jack Ryan

both panels had all of the important and top "stars" of the series to include all of the actual Marvel Runaways "Runaways" (with two of the creative/writing force joining them) and for Jack Ryan, John Krasinski, Noomi Rapace and Michael Kelly.

each show, included premiering the first full episode of the yet to be released season followed by stage time with the casts to hear their take on the upcoming season as well as the past one. each also ended with a Q & A session with each respective cast.

both were enjoyable, nice to see the casts in person and hear from them. I can't wait to see Noomi in JR S2.
that woman is and she looks like she could kick your ass in the same breath!
