    My first build (ODST armor EVA foam)

    I have been wanting to make cosplay for years, but it has always just been this thing that i never thought I'd do, but since I have so much free time now, I'm going to try it. I should probably start with something easy but i really like the way the ODST armor looks so for my first build I'm...
