Destiny 2 Costume - The Most Challenging We’ve Ever MadeJun 11, 2021
In the world of film, skilled craftsmen make fantastic
costumes and accessories to bring characters to life. Now these
costumes always look so real, like they were actually
madefor these characters to wear in their jobs and before starting Corral Digital with Sam I. I always wondered how these costumes were
made. Now, early next year, we have the opportunity to film a too short Destiny movie and for that we are going to make a guardian hunter costume, so from the helmet to the boots in this video we are going to show. Every step of the way, how to make a movie quality costume, there are a lot of different techniques, a lot of people working together to make this happen, so we'll see if we can make it happen in a week.
I'm here. with kai from the commissioner accessories and he will help us put this costume together, we are going to build the Exodus Down armor set with a Celestial Nighthawk helmet, this is the plan, this is how we are going to build the costume, starting with the helmet In my opinion, the easiest way to do this is 3D printing. The next step will be the cape, hood and cape. We have this awesome area here and here, kind of segmented like very padded areas, so I. We have decided that we are going to go with a nice leather for the quilting.
We will use eva foam cut into squares and blocks, so next we have the chest plate, so we will use a sculpted and cut PVC plastic material. to get the shape we need for the chest plate now under all this armor we need a base layer so for that we're just going to use a basic under armor style t-shirt that has a cool hexagonal pattern easy next up will be from De here to here, a cool type of Han Solo utility belt, after that we have this type of two-tone pants and finally we have the boots, the gloves and other little accessories, the boots that we are just going to buy, the motorcycle boots .
The same goes for the gloves, there are gloves out there that closely match what we need in this costume, it's finally not here in the picture, but now we will also build a mida multitool that will be 3D printed and broken down into a bunch of pieces and printed on a bunch of different printers by our friends at Mattehackers, this completed costume should be ready by next Friday this Thursday, so basically we have a week, always remember to save it for references, print your stuff, keep it around you . All those little bits of information that you're absorbing by seeing them help you stay on track and be accurate because if you don't, you'll start to lose your memory and your memory won't be as perfect as those references exactly for
mostparts of the armor.
Of this entire construction, including the helmet, the 3D printing method will be much more accurate, much more science-based and a little bit of science fiction, which I think is kind of Cool Kai asked me to print the shoulder pad for him. Maybe we can get it from a 3D model that already exists, but there isn't one, so I have to model it myself. It is a relatively simple way. It's this thing here, so I actually started working on it, it's going pretty well. I have the basic form. I'm just putting some of the details here. First I make a low poly model so I can manipulate all the edges.
Actually, I'm just working. on one half and ignoring the other because I'm going to apply a symmetry modifier that will mirror the half to the other side and give it more of the shape I'm looking for and then finally a soft turbo modifier that will smooth it out. all because the printer will print it like this, you'll see those faces if it's not high enough resolution, so a couple more details to model here and this will be ready to print, so I'll be printing it in about 10 minutes. all those cool padded leather bits from the oven we were talking about, they are all eba foam with leather over the front and they look and feel pretty good.
This whole area is what we're working on right now around here. Wrapping it all around is kind of a gaucher or a kind of neck guard and it has padded raised areas, we're going to make foam blocks wrapped in leather, when this is all sewn together we're going to grab a big piece of leather. sewing machine we're going to make lines for it, so
everything is going to be divided, it's going to look really nice, this is going to go right over here and then there's going to be kind of an extra belt hanging around here.
In one problem, the print failed, how could such a print fail? Well this happened during the night when he was sleeping so he usually feeds like this and somehow the plastic filament had wrapped around itself, basically tied itself in a knot and stopped feeding. machine, but unfortunately it's a 22 hour print and we have to start again. We are now exactly one week away from the deadline. I just started again. I'm working on creative disorder and the emphasis there is disorder. This is approximate. chess piece outline there are s
everal different layers in this thing that marks the details.
I'm going to find a way to brush it and smooth it out because there's a flat plate here but then it gradually curves, there are these like beveled edges too, so let's treat them this way, this main area that Nico was talking about has to be shielded. and look kind of tough and robust, but the rest of this team and this whole midsection here we're going to have this. Something like a leather vest, a kind of crop top that we're going to stick on Nico's armor. I swear this will look like a good costume. Eventually, give me some time people, it's okay, it's a process, so heavenly.
Nighthawk helmet, so I have a 3D model, everything looks great, I sized it, we measured everyone's heads in the office and it looks like everything is fine, the thing is that it is a very complicated model, I'm not sure if there will be If I have some printing problem, I'm thinking of scaling it down and printing a miniature version and if that miniature version works then I can go for the full scale one. I have successfully printed the helmet, it is the size of a cat, but this turned out very well it looks good the scale looks good here is my head I will trace it for you in 3D ready yes move yes these basses are going to sewing, we don't want to do a lot like drawing, sewing and creating patterns and things like that, sometimes an easier way to do it is to cut something existing, leave it flat and now we have our platform and it will be exactly what we need to make our bottom platform to keep joined the rest of his team. the upper arm will have a padded area here, belts with buckles coming around the sides, on top of that you'll have this little shaped piece here, like it's sitting on top of here, like an extra little armored shoulder. there's only going to be one of these pads and then on this side we're going to have the padding also go through the walls on this side these sides hold weapons a shoulder pad a knee pad so it's okay to fall down to this knee, but if you do this, then you're going to die, this is my kneeling knee, so we drove an hour for five to come visit the matter hackers, now the matter hackers will help us with the mida multitool and the nighthawk celestial helmet, they actually have a lot of printers and they can print the individual parts on each, so for example the helmet has probably been split into about 10 pieces and on 10 printers they are all printing equally at the same time, so it should be like this.
I'm ready now so if these prints don't work we won't be able to have this costume made in time before we all leave for Christmas and we won't make the deadline so I hope they work so these are
mostof the images I use in In total, I think it was about 150 hours total for the rifle. Wow and like 197. Okay, here we go, done. Oh wow, look at that. It looks incredible. It's just real duct tape, next to the tape. Ooh, is it super fragile or can it? Yeah, you can hold it, yeah, I mean, shouldn't I?
It's super glued, that looks amazing, yeah, that looks really cool, yeah, this is cool, big question for you. 3D printing is always that question about size, whenever you want, take something from yes, those polygons and you realize that in real life it actually fits in your hands and it's really comfortable, it fits right on the shoulder, it looks cool , thanks for your experience and your skill, your time, thanks to Matterhackers for helping us with this. You're welcome, great, okay alex, we'll get back in the car because we're going to have the whole suit ready for Friday, have fun with that, I'll do it, it'll be great, you know, last minute panic can be a big problem .
Inspiration, what I'm doing is I'm working on an elbow pad here and as it gets built it'll end up looking more and more like what we're trying to do, this will be a cool thing I think once. I've made one of these, we need two, so what I'm going to try to do is make them symmetrical and then I'll show you how I make a quick mold so I can mold a couple of these. It doesn't look like much right now it looks like poop and it's going to look great yeah if you're going to use spray paint you don't want to do a nasty masking job this is what we're going to do.
We got them from Bungie directly, they hooked us up with what they call flip sheets for everything we're building, this particular instrument is going to require a lot of very particular masking, so I got the little things that the car guys use personalized. I've never done anything this complex, but as you can see, I think if we take our time and do it right, it will turn out great. I don't know if you just saw that time lapse, but look at all this masking. It took me two hours to mask this thing and that's just for one color, there are three colors and then I'm going to have to go in with some fine detail and get some neon colors and some coppers, better in the whole process, how am I doing?
Here I am John John, nice to meet you, we don't exactly have the time to properly customize the pants, so what we're going to do is take two pairs of pants and we'll put them together. Basically, I think it looks perfect, so this is what we need, so if you try to sew this by machine, you're just going to sew the pant leg together and that's not going to work, so he's going to sew it by hand. John helped me do it. a few things before and he's going to do a lot of sewing for us and help us, so just tell me what percentage we're at, from zero being nothing to 100 percent being someone standing in the costume with a camera taking pictures of It's very hard to quantify.
I need you to quantify. You know, I'm trying to figure out how to tell myself a number. You had to give me a number gun to your head, maybe like 50. 50. Yeah, okay. I'm going to take that with a grain of salt and assume it's more like 40. Even 35. We're working on an incredible deadline, that's for sure you're feeling the pressure, I mean, sleep is optional, right? Yeah, sure, but leave it when it's done if you remember at the beginning of the video I showed that little elbow pad and I started putting all that putty on it after I put a bunch of coats on it and I was polishing it and sanding it and it was done.
It looks pretty good and I wanted to shape it because we're going to make two or three of them. We're going to use one for the knee, one for each of the two elbows. What I did was take the elbow. pad I wanted to use I took some clay and increased it inside it and then I glued it to the table and after I glued it to the table I cut a bunch of cardboard and made a fence around it, after that I mixed a bunch of silicone and then I filled all that negative air space around this with silicone and then I made something that looks like this, yeah, when I turn it over and take the clay and take out the knee pad, all that's left is the shape of the knee pad after that , we can take this resin, this urethane resin in two parts, so now that it's mixed, pour it here, I'm going to slush it and keep it moving, this is often what's worth calling a slush plaster, right? are you literally letting it dry on the balls?
Yes, wow, the good thing is that I can do multiple layers. Wow, let's go okay, beautiful, yes, okay, so my sanding is done and now I'm going to Wash this off the images, no longer like bits of plastic or dust, then I'm going to apply a primer. If I don't prime the plastic paint, it may not stick to it, so this will give me a great base paint in a bit. It was a small problem, we had to start printing the helmet right away because we have a very short time frame for this project. The Destiny 2 version of the helmet is quite different from the Destiny 1 version, mainly in this part here, like the face. mask respirator, etc., we need to find a way to change this bottom part to more accurately reflect the Destiny 2 hood.
The profile of this is cool, that's all. Everything will work fine. Look at this, the bottom half of the hull is a lot. thinner or it's like a respirator or like a mask, we could probably do something by just using one of our gas masks or something like that to cover this part, that would probably give us this profile, you know, making a good disguise is something like that. how to jump on a plane and sew the parachuteon the way down, so it's really just a case of finding ways to make things work because there is no strict yes or no answer.
There are many ways we could have done this, none of them are the choice wrong. One of the other steps we'll need to consider is that once everything is built, we need to make it look like it literally jumped. of the game the best way to do it is with a really good paint job, we have to make everything look a little worn and worn. The best way to get those kinds of effects I think will be to use an airbrush or something or something, what's up? Are you okay, how's your weekend going? Okay, it's going great.
It's about to go really well, though yeah, turn this on. I'm going to try this video. Yes, let's try it. Uh, wow buddy, you're going to need one of those armor-looking ones. Cool the gun looks pretty good too yeah the gun looks hey thanks man I'm the happiest with the amount of pop we got when we airbrushed everything, taking it flat gold and then adding a little bit of darkness about a few places really help you go from flat colors to depth and I love that
