    We can rule out that they are not Converse... I don't see the star.

    These are Converse, guys. :p

    Here, unveiled the whole mystery. ;)


    Also, few more photos. Have many more but will have to sit and look at them first.

    But here is my Palmer 1.5 work-in-progress to 2.0:

    What?? Seriously? I don't see a star! As you can see I have this fixation on stars for some reason...

    PaiganBoi It's in the back. XD But these are Converse Chucks. ;)


    Few more shots - I have many photos and few small videos. Everything from my own camera as my mom was with me. Unfortunately I didn't find anything online, even though many people did photos.

    Anyway, we were also having a guy making a video.

    Here is a beautiful shot that pleases me. With light and shadow play you can exactly see the improved pieces so nicely. The different details giving it more dimensions and appear more 3d. So nice :D

    I even a very personal Cortana. ;)

    Also, here is a b-roll slo-mo of us making shots for the video. ;)

    Spartan55 - you can order them from Gamestop US, this is where I got it from, they send worldwide.

    Hahah, it's better to run as a Spartan than a square block. :)

    There just so expensive also wean I'm dressed as felix xxtrancexx and I will probably swap props for the con (he has my scatter shot I have his energy sword)
    Also forgot to say before did you yell out at any point " hey mum get the camera"



    And I need some help did you put this detail on both sides of the helmet
    image.jpg
    Because my cast only had it on one side?

    macktruck Wow, thank you so much! <3 Really appreciate. :D


    Spartan55 Unfortunately, yeah it is expensive. 50$ + shipping. Still, IMO it's an amazing prop and I'm totally in love.

    About the helmet cast - thing is that the helmet is inaccurate with many details... So, you can either keep it or sand it down - but be careful, you could make a hole if it's hollow inside. It's up to you.
    Normally, in the area underneath the visor there is no part like that at all - both going into the helmet or protruding out, but like I said, the helmet cast has many inaccurate parts.

    Spartan55 You're welcome.

    SilverRosemary Thank you very much for your kind words and I'm happy you like it. :) Good luck with your costume!

    - UPDATE -

    Alright, no photos now, but few behind-the-scenes videos from a short video we filmed on Gamescom.
    Short clips rather, but I wanted to upload them as I really appreciate them - my mom was actually doing these and all pics.


    This short video of me on Halo Wars 2 booth. I was staying there multiple times or circling around the Xbox booth overall. Some people wanted photos and I'm happy it was captured on the video - showing my mobility that I can crouch or kneel. ;)




    Here more of the BTS footage. Slo-mo run, because apparently slo-mo is cool. ;)




    Simple short footage of us having a short break during filming different shots.




    Another epic slo-mo. I only wish so hard it was sharp at the beginning... would have been so * epic. ._.




    I have few more of those short videos.

    i don't want to be that guy who revives a dead thread, but where did you get the foam for detailing? i feel that i would save me some time detailing an odst helmet.

    it'still in the pre-pep/pep fase but i like to get all the info i can get for materials and such :D
