You did an AWESOME job with this! I would like to see more of this in the future.
Hey man, thank you so much! That looks amazing!
This looks awesome! Has anyone tried to sew this to clothe?
Thank you for sharing this with us. I look forward to using this to give my build the best accuracy I can!
The original Blue Realm one was pleather I think. That would certainly be more durable. The downside of foam or this hex material is that it wears quickly.
True, however if you try to avoid turning your head or moving needlessly then it can last a while.
Why has it taken me this long to see this? This looks like it'll be very helpful for me to actually complete my undersuit.
I've bought the hex material and I've been tryin to print the patterns. Every time I try to print,it only prints the center piece. I've read others post about having the same issue. Can someone explain how to make it print correctly? I'm using a Mac and also have photoshop. I'd really appreciate the advice, thank you.
can anybody tell me how good Hex70 would work for this part because it is a nice hex pattern to go above
I've never seen that stuff before, it's pretty cool.
It would probably work fine but you would have to heat seal the edges to prevent fraying of the nylon. It also might be a bit uncomfortable so you might want to back it with something softer.
So, can anyone help with the printing of the patterns?
Oooooh, definitely gonna try this. Not having a neck seal is one of the biggest requirements for my suit, but I had no idea how to go about it. Saving for later!
I just wear a turtleneck.
Do you mean in addition to, or instead of this? Because if it's instead of... No sir. One must become a proper Spartan.
That looks real cool and I wouldn't mind trying it but are you able to move properly with it on eg. Looking up and down, and what not
It's not great for mobility, but good enough. The one I made out of foam instead of the hex material works better.
Either way It's still really cool
Thanks! It's easy to make so you could experiment with different materials.
That looks a lot more comfy than the silicon ones that I've seen. Is it? Just wounded so I know if I want to get a silicon one or make one like this.
I may have to try this how well has it held up?
It's a little beat up. Definitely not as durable as the foam one I made for Mark VI armor.
There's a new hex pattern fabric coming from cosplayfabrics.com that would probably work a lot better.
As cool as it might look, the pattern is VERY tiny, but the problem is with the material - it's leather-like.
From some people's experience, you will dehydrate very faster.
Just finished painting the neck seal wth Plastidip. I'll let it dry over night and see how it feels. Thank you for thread, it really helped!.
How breathable is your Aero-mat neck seal? It looks like there's some open spaces between the hexes, but that Plastidip on top has got to make it hot.
I used an old under armor shirt as an inner liner. I'm hoping that will help the durability and make it more breathable. DragonCon will be the test as far as heat goes.
