A few months ago my brother told me that he was going to this years Penny Arcade Expo. I asked him to take me with him. Now I'm going to PAX prime in september.
After I got my ticket and all that stuff ready I decided that i needed a good suit of armor to go along with it.
This is how it's going.
I have two and a half weeks left before we leave for the 13 hour drive, from Calgary Canada to Seattle in the States.
I'm only gonna post two progress pictures from before today since I already have about half the suit already done. At the moment I have the torso, biceps, forearms and hand plates completely done and the helmet is in the detail stages. The thighs and shins are being fiberglassed and the boots have just been peped.

I tried the dual visor technique and i'm really happy with how it turned out.
So now we're up to today.
I have plans to put a pair of fans in the helmet so I don't die at the con and there will be a set of lights in the helmet. If I have enough time then I want to set up lights on the rest of the suit as it is in the game.
There's gonna be updates pretty frequently since I have to get the other half of the suit done in the next two and half weeks. Look out for them and tell me what you think.
