The StarCraft Adjutant Cosplay has been done before, in the style of a ball gown, I on the other hand want to make it more like a space armor cocktail dress ;)
Starting off with the chest plate. First off I will be making Second Great War Adjutant and not Adjutant 23-46, but I will use it as inspiration for the parts I cannot see on my reference photo.
Chest armor and Worbla
For the front I needed boob cups, so I shaped the worbla over a plastic sphere (my codex staff to be exact)
And pieced together. Since worbla is a little difficult to get hold of here, I am only using one layer to make it last longer. And I do regret that somethimes, when it gets too wobbly. I also didn't have a pattern, but tried and reshaped it all the way.
You can't really see the back, so I designed it as a space armor using reference photos from other space suits from the game. So in theory this is my original design.
And using pizza boxes a supporting material to the worbla.
One idea I had was that you could attach the cables coming out of my head to my back, so I used the screw mechanism from a jar, with the lid attached to the back. This makes more sense when the head is finished.
Used tulle for details
And Lights. For once I can actually take out the batteries.
Vents on the back - Robots need cooling.
Adding a few more details.
Then you need to prime it with Gesso. I like to use a mix of wood glue and gesso during the final layers.
Then I spray painted it with a silver base color.
Black weathering and black details.
The bar code is hand painted. The LED is 3 mm orange.
Screws were added to get a more mechanical look.
The threads from a can lid was added to the back construction, so I could screw the tubes from the head piece into the the back piece.
