I’ve just posted about making the attachment for the nozzle of my heat gun to “weld” an Ice Viper’s hood onto Arctic Snake Eyes’ parka to make an Arctic Ripcord. Here’s the shots of the Ice Viper with the hood from Snake Eyes’ parka.
I’ve got hoodieboy and a normal one side-by-side for comparison. You can see that this is probably the least impressive angle as you can still see the seam on the inside of the hood. Because of the Squeeziness Factor, I had to do the work on the hood while it was already on the Ice Viper, making it incredibly difficult to melt things together, plastic-welding styles, without melting the Ice Viper’s face too (I melted his visor a little, whoopSo yeah, the most flaws in the above.
A side-on comparison, where you can still see a bit of a sharp angle between ‘old’ parka and ‘new’ parka near his face, but I’m still loving it.
My favourite shot, of course, because it shows no imperfections!
What’s that? FUCK. I see that I overlapped the black line with some white when covering up char marks. Meh, I can fix. But still, FUCK. Should’ve seen that.
Another shot showing the slightly too-angular meeting of hood-of-parka with neck-of-parka, but still a pretty good shot. The camo pattern works too, I think. Just need to fix that black line on his back.
