After seeing Ashley Wood post this brief description of DIY de Plume I knew I couldn’t mess with my DIY when it arrived. Not to say I don’t want to take on another DIY later. With this one I wanted to keep the DIY character complete but in the tradition of Do It Yourself, still do some alterations. In the end I chose to have DIY be the first de Plume with removable mask and helmet. This meant I had the great opportunity to give de Plume a face, as no one has yet to see one without their iconic gas mask.
Removing the helmet was easy with some warm/hot water. The more difficult part was cutting the mask from the old de Plume head and hollowing it out enough to fit correctly on the new head. A decapitated soldier head from the WWRp Dirty Deeds Bertie supplied DIY’s new head. I thinned down the cheeks and altered the nose, removed the hair and ears and added some scarring to the cheeks. Add the two beady eyes and I feel DIY now has that cold look I imagine the de Plumes all share. Some white paint and DIY is all set.
For now the mask fits snuggly wedged between the inner helmet and face. The next step will be to add a small elastic strap to the mask to have DIY with mask sans helmet.Although right now I think my favorite look for DIY is sans mask with helmet.
My many thanks to 3A, Ash, Kim, all who work hard to bring us that great 3A merch and Knives for the little spotlight on DIY and those offering up their alterations.
