OK! Let’s start by looking for a picture of what I am trying to do.
Holy shit! How am I going to do this?
Ok. Calm down. You’re a smart guy. You’re creative. You can do it!
First things first, I need more pictures, with more detail from multiple angles. Luckily there are people with slightly less spare time than me. Those people make models. Some of them even make Mad Max models. I found a site that sells a 1/6 scale model of Master Blaster and provides a bunch of photos. Awesome.
Still incredibly daunting, but, hey, let’s go for it.
Gotta start somewhere and I think Blaster is going to require the most work and time. So, I am holding off on the midget for now.
Shit…that helmet is going to be a pain. Let’s get some of the low-hanging fruit first. As the brawn half of the brains and brawn combo that is Master Blaster, Blaster has to be ready to fight. Being ready means wearing armor of sorts to protect himself, though protecting his nipples was not deemed important. Looking at him, it kind of looks like I need to get some sports equipment. Football shoulder pads for the top.
Some padded football pants
and a pair of catcher’s leg guards
(Yes, I know they are purple but they were only $20 and I am going to paint them black anyway)
I am already on my way. At least if this costume doesn’t workout, I can always start playing some sport where you get hit in the legs and shoulder a lot. Rhythmic gymnastics maybe.
I seriously need help…
