    My first build.. think its good enough to wear to Mega Con? (Pic Heavy)

    Thanks. I need to look up the bondo section as I have no clue how to use bondo yet, so I think that will be next, and also I do have a toe piece it just fell off... any suggestions for a better way to attach it to the shoe?

    My first build.. think its good enough to wear to Mega Con? (Pic Heavy)

    Hey all, So, I made this suit about two years ago.. for Halloween, Last year for Halloween I took it out, repainted it and finished it off with the Visor (which came out slightly crooked dang it all). Anyway, here are the pictures from my cruise, and I wanted to ask if you all thought it was...

    Finished Armor

    I just bought the single gold visor off of ebay so i guess im doing single layer. I didnt have the extra income to buy the pressure suit this week but i would like to buy one eventually. I am def working on distressing the armor, I am playing with my smaller chest piece to see some good...

    Finished Armor

    Here is a quick pic from the party last night, I won the best costume contest. I still need the visor, it didnt get here in time, and i need to distress it but overall you get the idea.. not too bad for my first time and the fact that I did it all in 3 weeks. I redid the chest from scratch...

    So My Armor Is Done.... But...

    So how is this for a big back of suck. I have been in overdrive for the past 3 days because I had swine flu and couldnt do any work. Some of you may know who read my post that I wanted this done in time for my halloween party (which is tomorrow). So I dont know why I didnt realize it before...

    So, I am starting to cut for my chest piece now but I have a question. When assembling your chest piece, does anyone have any tips about ease. For example. Do you assemble it all together front and back and then fiberglass it, or do you perhaps assemble the front chest piece, and the back...

    Yeah, we have an annual halloween party every year that is pretty big, and I want to try and have it done before that with a few days to spare. We are doing a Video game theme as well this year so, it would make me happy to have it done. Also, I figure if I can finish everything by the 20th, I...

    I think when it comes to the helmet it all depends on the kind of time i have left. I would love to do the high def helmet but as I said I am on a time crunch so I will probably end up doing the low def one at least for now. I figure that if i get everything completely done by when I want to...

    Thank you very much, it was driving me crazy and I have noticed other lines that have the smallest hint of a tab but it seems pointless to cut it. I guess I just get in my zone when I am cutting and dont really think I just cut lines. But the tip you gave me about repairing it is very helpful...

    Thanks GiR, I wanted to have a majority of the armor pepped before I really started posting a lot that way people knew I had some credibility. And Gallard, I was doing the low def one first because I am trying to get it done by October 24th. Everything you see there I have done in about 3-4...

    Finally Have Pics To Show For Critique.

    So, I feel as if it is not too bad for my freshman effort. I know there is some warping here and there but im hoping that it isnt so much that it will effect the armor. Also, on the seat of the cod piece there is a cut (i have a picture of it on here). There was a cut line but it looks wrong to...

    How did you find us?

    I saw the backyard fx video on you tube about building armor and it reminded me of this place. I had stumbled across it once a few months ago.

    Hardest Pep Piece? Taking It Slow..

    I appreciate the info. Apostle I have to agree with you on working your way up to the hard pieces, and your point about the helmet being an icon was a good one. I think I will save that to last and start working on the chest piece today. Luckly for me im just doing the basic mark iv (or is it v)...
