Okay, now that all the legal stuff is out of the way...
Here it is~!
The full Judgement outfit plan, as complex as it may be.
Sorry folks, the lack of colors probably makes it slightly more complex than it should be (even though it is still complex), but I'm sure you'll get the gist of it.
This was modeled using Kratos' original character poses and the whole outfit from in-game footage. Some guesswork and stuff, since they're different proportions (the game characters and the slightly-more-realistic figures), but this is just the way I see it working.
As I say on the left, I'll be wearing a form-fitting top and bottom, then get into the shell of a costume like that. I didn't want to have the obvious overlap in clothing there, but it's not too bad and I've kinda gotten the idea sunk into my head that "I'd like to have outfits that are more realistic, and that one can actually look like they can get in and out of."
I mean, both of Kratos' outfits, really, are one-piecers. There's no way he can slink in and out that well. But I digress...
There's a nice interweaving of belts going all around, and each one will be edged with white fabric. I'm going to get some fake leather to use, something that's obviously thicker than fabric so that there can be a depth difference between them and, say, the pants and sleeves.
There are several grommets all over the weave, and I'd like to think that they're buttons. But, for the sake of simplicity, only a few will be actual buttons, as illustrated. The rest will be ornamental.
All of the important belts come out of the plate in the back; it's what forms the two bands that button in the front as well as another which connects to the legs. Combine that with the straps which come from the back of the legs and I say it'd be interesting to see just how well it can all stand up without sewing.
It's interesting, really: there's a band of blue that runs up his leg, to the waist then splits, forming a band in the back and the front of the "jacket." Also, when looking at the front, the thick bands of material just before the arms wraps around to the back, underneath the large leather plate and sliver of fabric below it.
Lots of twisting and turning...
His gloves are slightly shorter on the fingers than his usual ones. That, and they don't have those gold-metal knuckles.
Also, as I stated on the sheet, he does not sport an Exsphere. It just magically appears during some cutscenes. How typical.
Uh... questions, comments, concerns?
