    Default The strangers 1/6 scale figures progress thread

    hey guys wanted to start a little thread so you guys can see how my project is going and hopefully i get a good "ULTIMATE GRAIL" set made

    first a little background on this project
    this project started 2 years ago when i wanted to put together a set of figures of one of my favorite horror movies of recent time
    it didnt start well as most of the sculptors and artists id heard about just were not interested in taking it on
    however on the second time of asking legio7 decided to say yes and made two beautiful masks and also made a pretty awesome man in the mask headsculpt




    around this time i had been diagnosed as having a brain tumour so this project became a positive focus for me
    i had been asking around about clothing and was trying to avoid paying a ton of money as i had to keep some saved in case things changed with my tumour
    it was at this point i was shown the amazing strangers diorama built by zsaszsays ltd and the figure he had built
    i got in touch with him and we began talking
    he seemed like a genuine guy and we got to know each other because we both had **** going on
    i decided to use some of my saved money on commisioning him to build some stuff and make clothing
    knowing he was going to handle all that took alot of stress off me
    but then his updates stopped and he stopped messaging me
    there wasnt much i could do because i was due to have surgery to remove the tumour
    after i took a break and dealt with my recovery all communication from him ceased he removed me from his personal facebook and stopped even reading my messages
    i almost decided to just quit
    but after what id just gone through felt quitting over some clothing was the dumbest thing i could do lol

    so contacted geewhiz clothing and they handled some of the work
    worked on the tie myself and other bits and pieces
    and met an awesome lady called pam who made the clothing for my pin up girl and did an amazing job
    almost finished the man in the mask and am close to putting the girls together

    to say this has been a journey is an understatement

    ive met some amazing people through this hobby but also seen the ugly side of it such as peoples egos getting too big and other people just flat out running off with my money

    ill try and update this thread as much as i can

    thanks for tagging along

    geewhiz also made the suit for man in the mask
    they got the colour exactly how i wanted it
    normally this material is used for jedi cloaks and stuff so its pretty thick so im going to have to work on it the get some flex and hang right

    geewhiz clothing was just too expensive to keep using and they wanted me to literally separate the black dots from the orange and make two different files
    so i had to find an alternative
    thats when i met Pam from pamSD custom clothing she normally works on dolls and make elaborate dresses and fancy clothing for collectible dolls
    but fancied the challenge of doing something different and she nailed it
    i wish id met her sooner as i would have got her to make the dollface clothing and the man in the mask suit




    her work is second to none
    and despite some setbacks and her being sick she came through for me big time
    i used a scarlet witch hot toys body for this and she made it to fit

    thanks guys
    so i looked everywhere for a tie similar to the one worn in the movie and couldnt find any material that would do it justice
    so decided to try and create the actual pattern
    i took a piece of the tie from a photo from the movie and stitched the small segment together over and over in photoshop until i had essentially a "to scale" sheet of the pattern


    then printed it on a photocopier using special inkjet material sheets
    then shaped it into the tie and added a piece of elastic which would hide under the shirt collar


    it turned out pretty good
