I been doing a lot of sanding. Primer. And silver base coat, intentionally not a smooth layer of silver for the dirtyetal look for a battle damage to come.
I like the choices you made for this under suit do you have links to the items or the names of the products you purchased? I really love the inclusion of hip packs for storage.Right here it is undersuit items time.
Planning to use a motorcycle 1 peice breathable undersuit as the base layer.
I bought a stormtrooper neck seal off etsy, it's comfy and easy.
On the shins I am reckoning fitting comfy knee pads inside the shins with some additional padding to make them nice and snug.
On the torso I have had an idea which is a spin on the classic downhill bike armour everyone uses.
I found a molle belt as well as thigh straps for gun holsters. The thigh straps I plan to connect to the thighs to mount them nicely. And also I grabbed two molle pouches that will fit and be practical for stuff. Ammo, plasma nades. I then plan to connect the molle belt to the belt peice to the body armour to make it all nice and tight and secure.
I can also attach the cod peice parts to this belt. It think it will look right and be practical too.

Hey.I like the choices you made for this under suit do you have links to the items or the names of the products you purchased? I really love the inclusion of hip packs for storage.
I didn't really document it. I have added some photos below.I think you did a great job on your build. did you document the repaint and mod on the AR?
This is amazing thanks for the closer look, I am excited to do mine now for sure!I didn't really document it. I have added some photos below.
I just watched a few vids on YouTube for inspiration. But graphite powder is 100% a great look, with blacks and guetal silver.
The electrics for the light were quite simple but the right size light was a but of luck EverBrite LED Mini Torch,... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B096RZ52VT?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
The lens of this light fits the nerf gun light exactly. You need the drill the plastic core bit out as it has retention pins but once you done that. A bit of hacksawing on the light itself and a few soldiering skills and you have a working light. If you wanted to you could even keep the working nerf guts in the gun and power of the d cells. I took that all out as some conventions don't allow working nerf.
The thing I did that I haven't seen anyone do, is I sprayed matt black near the muzzle and it gave it a light black dusting which gave a muzzle burn look which I think you can just about see in the 3rd photo. Truste it looks more convincing in person.

Definitely make sure you have someone there to take pictures for you, many first timers get caught up in the moments and forget about their own photos. It happened to me.I will be going to a con soon and will try to get some good glamour shots. Currently I don't have any decent photos
