    DragonCon 2019 Annual Dinner at Mellow Mushroom 3:30pm EST Saturday August 31st

    Not sure I'll be able to make this one, and I may not be the only one. if it's at 3:30pm this year, it's going to conflict with alot of us that also go to the destiny photoshoot, which is at 4:00pm this year I believe Edit: I will be there, although I'll likely be a little late

    Thank you, and sorry, I've been neglecting this forum lately, I'll try to get my progress pics up soon, I'm actually almost done with this suit. As for the backpack, I used the thick 1/2" foam mats for the body and I used 6mm and 2mm craft foam for all the details. Again, I'll try to post some...

    I use pep files and game asset models for the most part, but i modify them to look more accurate, and theres some occasional freehand work. And as for storing my armor, my entire emile suit(minus the helmet) fits nicely in a 50 gallon tote that i leave in my basement and jorge is currently...

    No i'm saying you should plasti-dip. i'm saying i consider it a mistake not to plasti-dip. it seals the foam, reinforces it and gives you a good, smooth surface to paint on. theres no reason to heat seal it if you're just going to seal it with plasti-dip anyway. Heat sealing only has a purpose...

    No, i heat form them before i glue them. Theres not really a point to heat sealing unless you're not plasti-dipping the finished piece, which i would consider a mistake

    Yeah i'm not either, i just heat form any pieces before i glue them, but i don't wait for it cure to add the hot glue on the inside, it doesn't seem to hurt it too bad

    Yeah i use hot glue to reinforce the seams on the insides. contact cement doesn't fully cure until after about 72 hours and heat can undo the seams a little, but i haven't had any issue with them coming completely undone or anything and the hot glue fills in what it undoes, so its no big deal...
