    TK-9336's RAM in 2017

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    Hello all!

    Thought I'd check back in to get the pulse of the community. Rearing up to begin Starboy work. Sadly my original RAM Guy gloves I sculpted need to be re-chromed as well as new RAM gloves. Thankfully I have a ton of fabric I silkscreened last year to make some new ones! After seeing the originals in person at Maxfield (bought my plane tickets overnight to make it Sunday, amazing experience) the real ones aren't faring too much better with age. These costumes just aren't made for the type of abuse of cons. Probably why DP doesn't appear all that often! Expensive hobby I tell ya!

    I picked up some new RAM jackets that had the wrong sequins but whatever, I really have wanted to do the blacked out look since 2013. From redoing my RAM boots like 4 times over, to other small fixes in the suits I've gotten the closest sans the jackets to replicating the look that I'm happy with. I have the right, square 5MM sequins on the trousers, and still have enough to make the jackets one day... but 1k on jackets before doing something different like Starboy is out of the question. I really dig the Starboy costumes especially after seeing them in person!

    Here are a few more from Dragon Con 2017, shot by another great friend Trent Thornton. I got to borrow RabidIrish himself to wear my TB:

    I need to really add more mesh in my visor and do a completely new TB lid. I really want to do the actual jackets, but at 500-700 a pop, (and being back in school) its a project for down the road, like my LYTD jackets. I'm expecting to get a 3D printed RAM TB, they just so, so, damn good.

    For the longest time I couldn't post images to this forum for some weird reason on flickr but it feels great to be back!

    Dude! These are stunning. Thanks so much for sharing. Some of those RAM shots could easily be passed off as the real Daft Punk. Flawless execution and wonderful photography.

    Thanks gents. It's a continual evolution. I'm dying to make the real jackets and one day find the actual YSL boots. While I used glitter composite, the real deal use a glitter fabric.

    Next up for me is redoing my gloves, getting a new RAM TB lid, and eventually making a visor buck for Pedro's GM. Rabidirish made the best visor buck for GM with the fit and I'm definitely jelly! Glad I got to catch up with him at Dragon Con. Kinda cool to talk about this crazy stuff in person and not skip a beat to explain anything!
