Ok… so @Jaqs has borrowed me a few frilly bits :heart_eyes: this is what I have so far… Dress up is FUN! :smirk::thinking::smiley::rofl:

I have a few ideas mod wise for making it more combustion-ey… there are a few cam gears and random bits kicking around I’ll be using to accessorize… a robotic arm/ gauntlet would be cool as!!

Will see what I have time for… a little under 8 weeks to go!! I know @Bambi_Meg has some ideas of her own in the making :thinking::smirk:

So far I has a biiiiig Nerf gun and some motocross armour… need MOAR guns. MOAR Nerf Darts and lots of spray paint and cardboard … Cardboard is plentiful at work tho :smiley:

Anyone in South Yorkshire/ Derby area needing some real life inspiration or accessories… there’s a Steam Punk Festival on in Retford this Saturday… am personally working till 2 but am aiming to get down late afternoon…


#10

I think all I have left to actually buy are some aquarium piping, and probably some bronze paint because what I have will no way go far enough, I think I need more faux leather as well…

Then I just have to finish putting it all together!


#11

Am still waiting on a few bits from China :joy: then I’ll need to glue it all together and make some stencils for face paint… I’d kinda really like some gloves or a gauntlet too… main reason for going to the festival this Saturday! I needs gloves!!

Needs more cogs, and I’ve got a footpump I need to cannibalise to go with it.


#13
