A few more Guardian costume pieces

So here's the jacket, before and after. Not bad for $8 on ebay!

Here are the boots, completed (assuming the paint stays on)

Here is one of the gloves. Very rough, but i'm just lucky hot toys/sideshowtoys have such good photos of their detailed figure.

Here is a shot of the belt. Made the guns attach to it (snaps around the grips) 
instead of sticking to his pants, which is what it looks like it does in some of the promo shots

Here is the bag completed. 
Aged the color, reinforced the glue, and added the hardware.

  2. I love this. How did you add the detailing to the coat?

    1. well the coat came with a belt made of the same fabric (luckily). That combined with the little bit that was cut off the collar area and the bit cut off the bottom for the grown panel gave me a lot of extra fabric to work with. For the raised areas, I cut that fabric and glued it to craft foam then stuck that to the jacket. The brown pieces were just some cheap pleathery-vinyl from the fabric store. The shoulder guard and forearm are just craft foam bent and covered with that vinyl then stuck in place; the elbow guard is just foam painted silver (if anything was glued to the jacket fabric, I used "shoe goo"). The little hardware pieces are mostly studs glued on with that shoe goo stuff. Some places that didn't pop enough are where I chose to dust on some pewter spray paint, make the edges shiny so they are more visible.

  3. This is super late, I hope you see this! How did you make the belt you mention that you made it out of snaps but how did you connect the snaps to the belt? This is my current hang up for my own costume (trying to get it ready for a Halloween wedding D:)

    1. Oh no problem. You mighy could build it on top of an existing belt, but i built it more from scratch to get the exact look i wanted. The base is a thick band of elastic (from walmart) and the ends have the black plastic clamps to close it (like you would find in a backpack or something, also walmart). On top of that, i hot glued the elastic to the brown vinyl from the fabric store, same leather looking stuff i used on the boots and jacket. The little triangle things are just some thicker craft wire to match one weird aspect on the movie belt. Since in the movie, he has the guns attached to his pants, i made em hook onto the belt. Added some thin strips of pleather to wrap through the finger holes of the blasters. May want to add those snaps before you hot glue the pleather to the elastic. Just be sure the snaps are attached really well (use a hammer to put on the ones i bought), because the blasters are a tad heavy. Lastly, u made the buckle out of black craft foam. Cut a rounded rectangle in half and used hot glue to make the raised lines on it. Brushed on some silver spray paint and hot glued those to the plastic clasp. The foam is actually pretty nice so it can bend and bea easier to take off. If you can find a real buckle, thats awesome, but in central mississippi, the fabric stores didnt have anything like that haha. If you have any questions, you can email me at jillsowell155@gmail.com and i can send pix or something. Good luck!
