Georgia's first build!!! The MK IV and Halo 3 Assault Rifle

My Spartan name is Georgia (where I'm from) and my AI is Madison (my penname)

I'm going to be building this in conjunction with OFiveTwo, so my intention is for this to be a slow and steady progress.

I have decided on a MK IV Suit with an MK V helmet.
I bought the files from TitleWaveDesigns on Etsy.

I will be using TPU to print the under suit and PLA + to print the outer suit.
I will be painting this suit to mirror Texas from Red vs Blue

I have an Ender 3 S1 Plus.

This is my first time making armor or something I need to scale to wear. Armorsmith is an enigma to me. I don't know how much space I need in the gap between the armor piece and my model for it to fit once printed.
I am also trying to figure out the best way to secure the armor pieces to me to make it easier to remove the bottom half if I have to ...so bio things during a convention.
I don't know what kind of fabric actual soft gear to wear under the whole thing since I will be wearing two layers of suit.
I feel a bit too insecure to share my armorsmith model just with it being scaled the way it is without the armor. Once it has the armor layers on it, I will post a photo.
Tomorrow, I will start printing the first forearm piece

Printing parts 9-10/10!! The tree supports for each of the parts failed while printing for the previous parts, so, for these last two pieces, I printed them using a raft for the first time to see if it was an adhesion issue. This fixed the problem! We're 79% done now. Next up will be printing the TPU hand and elbow piece along with the accompanying forearm suit piece that was the actual homework assignment by OFiveTwo!
