    Apr 7, 2012, 10:54 PM - Orbital Drop Shock Pony #1

    To celebrate my partial return, i decided to take my old ODST project and add a nice new twist to it. I just got back from PAX East and decided I am not gunna go through that convention with out something cool with me. I wanted something original, and after seeing someones very strange and somewhat sad looking kat armor (looked like someone took a dive in a lake wearing papertowels) i wanted armor a little bit original. I decided, whats more original then combining two of my favorite hobbies. HALO AND MY LITTLE PONY! So alas, my project of the first Orbital Drop Shock Pony: the MLP themed odst armor! Here is the basic diagram of the basic design:


    the week after this week i will start finishing up the basic armor then when finalized the main hardening faze will focus on getting the paint and necessary supplies for the rest of this project, which probably wont be till summer time rolls around.

    oh, and enjoy some awesomeness:

    You may want to change the thread title as there is a active thread that's titled identically, its going to confuse people

    What i have so far. helmet is in shed with a bad mold over it. will have to wait till summer before i can get in there, get the **** mold off, and fix up the detail before saving up for real molding supplies. also, forearms will need to be redone, and shin will need to be molded and cast along with helmet.



    sorry for blurriness \/

    Looks great. I really like the idea and i was working on a custom concept of my own before i saw this. I will still drive on with my plan and start a thread of my own. I hope you dont think i am copying your plan.

    note to self: silicon caulk "poor mans mold" is not the best choice for clay

    the results of a bad mold left on my helmet:

    Looking good! I don't think I've seen someone use the desert MARPAT as an undersuit before. Sorry bout the helmet.

    the helmet is recoverable, but it is going to be tricky. the clay is fine, just the silicone caulk left residue merged with some claye, so when i try to pull some peices out, i pull more clay out then silicone.
