Slipstream costume Complete by Fire-Redhead Slipstream costume Complete by Fire-Redhead
AT LONG LAST! After a whole summer and countless hours of planning, building, sweating, and all kinds of craziness my Slipstream costume is finished! I am SO psyched it's finally done and looks SO SO SWEET! :iconeeeeeplz:

And if that wasn't enough...my BF chose this moment (in my costume) to propose to me! The ring is SO me...twin Decepticon symbols holding the gem.[link]
Check out the link and be sure to leave a comment to the talented jeweler who helped my BF design it.

< EDIT>> If you would like to see more pics of my costume and my fiance's just visit my new website [link]

This looks really awsome! (and thats exciting, congrats) anyways, the colour scheme is beautiful! i love the shades and tints it all blends together wonderfully! the chest plate and arms are very well made, i'm jealous! the wings are also well done and im glad to see they're to scale and the right shape, as well as looking like something better than a cheap cardboard cut out (and if it is cardboard, you are a god). the decepticon symbols are look really good and i like the accenting light blue behind them...i almost wish they were the traditional decepticon purple but i guess that might have made them look to abnormal with the over all colour scheme. In the end, this is a very beautiful costume and kodoos for pulling it off!
What do you think?

I don't know if the costume or your ring is more awesome! What a brilliant idea for an engagement ring.

It's not often that I meet someone who (in my opinion) is an bigger TF fan than I am... but you are a winner.

Well, I arrived here following the link you provided on ff.net, but I expected to find some arts, not some of the most epic Transformers costumes ever! :love:
I'm a cosplayer too and, I tell you, rarely I saw TF costumes so detailed.
The ring was stunning too... I wish my boyfriend proposed me dressed up as Starscream too! :meow:

how did you do the chest plates?
and which materials did you use?

We built them out of insulating foam. It too a lot of design to get them right but my fiance builds model airplanes so he already had a good idea how to make them. Then we covered them in plastic cabinet covers (really cheap stuff!) and painted them
