Thigh Prototype

posted May 4, 2014, 9:32 AM by Lewis Baumstark
Probably the hardest piece to fit (so far).  This one took a lot of trimming and piecing to get right, but I like the end product.  This one is 6mm foam for the dark parts with 2mm foam (yellow) glued behind the cut-out to give it that recessed look.  I won't be putting a "skin" over the dark parts to hide the defects, so this one is a true prototype: I'll use it as a pattern and cut two new pieces, one for my right thigh and one for my left.  This one is just too rough -- especially on the edges -- to keep.
