    Phauxelates's Mk. VI EVA Foam Build [Project Status: Done, but not actually done]

    So I picked up this nylon mesh fabric, and I'm going to try to 3D print some hexagon designs on it, or do something else that's cool. Check out this video to get an idea of what I'm talking about:

    My first helmet finished helmet / incomplete armor build.

    Here's another photo of the blackwash. I've improved the wash a bit since then, but it gives a better idea of the improvement blackwashing can do

    I will add in, I was very skeptical about doing a blackwash. Now that I did, I'm glad I made the decision to try it. It really brings the costume to together. Think of it as adding shadows to a small model. The blackwash doesn't necessarily make it more worn, but gives it life. What I did was...

    Look at this! Should I do anything with it?

    You guys want to know the story behind that? I told him that I used up exactly 30 hot glue sticks. I had to use a paint brush to shove the last stick through the hot glue gun to use it all. I told him that he'll want to buy extra glue sticks, more than just the 30 that comes with the hot glue...

    Oh, cosplay is nothing but fashion. And I taught you basically everything you knew when starting out! I spent a month researching everything, and you just get up and started within a couple days after me explaining everything to you in between classes. I re-read through your thread and not once...

    What else am I supposed to do? It's a long loop with keys on the end primed for putting around my neck

    Thank you! I will say that a large portion of that improvement is learning how to hand paint with acrylics. It's difficult and time consuming, but is very versatile! At some point I'll try to get the DMR started. But for now, here's a couple of other 3D printed props I've made:

    I'm using a Lycra diveskin. Keeps me cool. Plus, I found if I stick my phone and ID in a plastic baggy, I can shove it into the front zipper like a boob pocket ;) Also dang! I wish I could have been at the Microsoft thing with Random Ranger. I'm with family out in Tennessee right now, and I...

    Just putting a post here to say I'm not dead! I've updated "The List" on the first post for things I've completed. Work has started, so there's less time in the day to work on cosplay.... But I will get started on making things again soon! First thing I want to do is 3D print that weapon prop...
