Sombra Gun

The gun is my favorite part of this cosplay, and quite fun to build (except all the sanding... so much sanding)

To build the base sculpt I made several layers of mdf plywood, laser cut from vector files. A great puzzle.

And the unscrambling begins. 

Smoothing out the creases and suck with filler. 

First layers of primer, soon ready for silicone molding. 

And several more layers of primer. 

The dividing walls for the silicone. 

Brush on silicone. 

And a plaster jacket mold. 

My first resin cast <3

The electronics
I want lights and a small smoke machine. I used the tutorial from Valkyrie Studios.

Led strip being soldered. 

With a small trinket I could charge the battery with a usb cable. 

All the guts of the gun laid out. I also added polymorph to the magazine to even out the weight distribution. 

All put together and primed.

Base colors

I made vector designs in Illustrator and used a vinyl cutter to make the details on the sides. 

I also used an air brush and dry brushing to create details. 

The metal band is made from thin brass sheet.

And done

Sombra Leggings and shoes

I totally love the style of the legging and the fact that she has flat shoes. Still they took a bit of engineering to construct them, with the pattern, black panels and separate toes. 

I used the same fabric that I ordered for the inner jacket. The graphics were made in Illustrator and the fabric printed from BagsofLove

This was also the first time I used an Overlock.

Which took several tries to get right. 

But the first test leggings were a success. And I now love to sew with an overlock. 

The black applique were sewn on with a twin needle, and the effect is lovely. 

And then for the shoes. I had an old pair of ballerina flats which I detached from the soles. Then I added hot glue details as toes. 

The first pair was too uncomfortable, so the toes got transferred to another pair

I added "socks" of the custom printed fabric and glued the soles on. 

The ankle details are made from latex. 

The effect is really cool.
