    Late night update. All the hip plate bits have been cut and assembled.

    Bad part is I ran out of 2mm foam for the trim. So it off to Micheal's for a supply run.
    Before that the butt and one hip plate layers were glued together and I burned in some detail and damage.

    Got some more 2mm craft foam from Michael's. It's a little on the flimsy side but, since it's just for details it's not a big deal.
    Finished off the last hip plate.

    I also got started on the shin guards. Got the first one all cut out and started assembly.

    Shins are assembled. Just like with every other part I have made, some after assembly tweeking is needed. :cautious::cautious::cautious:

    Overall they are a little long by maybe an inch. They should come up under my knee cap. At the moment they are covering my knee.
    20190210_003954.jpg
    The knee plate was already cut down. I had them measure at 5 inches but, that was too long. 4 inches is much better.i have to recut the bevel. The angle they are sitting at know just does not look right.

    After the adjustments are made will burn in some details.

    Okay... So I bought some 10mm thick rope.
    20190211_205208.jpg
    The plan was to braid the 10mm and use it for the neck guards... Turns out 10mm is way thicker than I need. So now I have to settle for one strand to use. 20190211_212753.jpg

    For comparison here's a side by side of what it's supposed to look like.
    IMG_20190211_212904.jpg
    The question is does anyone know what I could use to tie up or crimp the ends with so I could unravel the ends to have to tassels at the tips?

    Oh here's a shot of the armour so far...

    You could always sew the strands together at the section you want the fray to stop at by doing a few loops around the outside and then sewing through the strands to tie everything off. If you can find an off-white thread that matches the rope fibers that'd be awesome and almost invisible.

    Does the tassel fraying start after the rope leaves the hole or before? If before the hole, then you could knot the rope and then fray it. If after, then I agree w/ TurboCharizard. Stitch the rope and then fray. Also, I recommend hot glue on the inside part to hold the rope in place. I had an issue w/ something similar on my Samurai build. The rope kept moving around when I put it on and took it off.....

    The tassels start after the whole. So I will be trying the stitches. At this point nothing is glued down. The parts still have to be painted. I might no glue them down, the hole that I have are pretty small and the way it's weaved in and out, it does not allow for much movement.

    Been home sick for the past couple of days. So instead of staying in bed sleeping it off what do I do? Work on my cosplay of course!
    Been patterning iut the helmet... Or mask... Whatever you call this thing...
    20190214_122712.jpg 20190214_122854.jpg
    Two major adjustments are needed here. The snout is too long. Will prob have to chop it by 2 inches and the other is the eyes. Instead of a mean menacing look, it looks like it's about to cry cuz some stole his candy...
    With the patterns everything looks like it has 90 degree angles. Those will have to be rounded off when foaming everything.

    I think traditionally you would take thread and wrap it around the rope a bunch really tight, which gives it that bunched look. Them before cutting it use a needle to send it through the rope a few before tying it off.

    I love seeing your pieces. Every piece is so bold.

    Not much to update. I was sitting on the patterns for the helmet. I wasn't happy with how the jaw line was. It didn't look right. After digging around on the interwebs for better references I found some that showed the snout wasn't flat it ended in a point like a dogs nose. So along with shortening the snout I gave a better shape to the tip. I also adjusted the brow line so it doesn't look so sad.

    Now I can finally get to uilding this out of foam.

    Assembly of the helmet today.
    20190217_153218.jpg 20190217_153240.jpg 20190217_153247.jpg
    The lower part turned out really well. I am quite pleased about it. The ears and upper part turned out well too.
    20190217_181625.jpg 20190217_183706.jpg
    The only thing that didn't turn out so well was the upper and lower don't fit like it should. I'm gonna have to play around with it... My have to add, remove or really heat form the foam to get it work.

    Got the top part attached. I ended up using little cubes of foam on the inside of the ear. At firs there were only 3 on eat side, then I added a couple of more just to make sure it would hold. 20190218_140615.jpg

    Then I added a strip of 6mm foam down the centre of the snout for detail and went to work with a wood burner.

    With this angle Odogaron looks like a Baboon ...

    Looking good 'boi. I've never actually played the game, so I don't see how the mask will sit, horizontal or more vertical, but I'm looking forward to how yours looks once it's on.

    You are gonna take pictures of it being on, right? ...Right?!

    That's the funny thing. I haven't test fit any of this stuff that I have made. I have a feeling that this is gonna bite me in the butt.
    Even for the mask itself there is a whole set up I have to figure out. I need a white wig to wear along with the mask.

    Look! I've made some teeth!
    20190218_211841.jpg Got some Lumin's Workshop foam clay from Redmoon Cosplay.
    20190220_213358.jpg 20190220_213411.jpg
    After 48 hour cure time, the teeth were sanded and then detailed with wood burner. Foam clay doesnt melt like eva foam. The lines aren't as clean.
    My dilemma now. Is weather to attach the teeth now then paint or.... Paint separately and then attach to mask.

    You run less risk of color bleed if you paint THEN assemble. It also allows better access to the whole of each tooth. That way you're not roving around like a dentist, touching tooth paint to everything.

    The eternal dilemma of choosing whether it's better to make painting or gap filling easier. :sick:

    For precise fitted parts such as 3D printed weapon props I'll paint in parts but large organic pieces I like to piece everything together first, fill gaps and make weathering easy.

    Small amount of progress tonight. Made a cuff/bracers with a zipper for ease of taking on and off. Added velcro as well to attach the arm guard. This cuff was a bloody annoying mess. My measurement of my forearm turned out to be off. I had to either add or take out material before it fit properly... Now I know how Dirtdives felt with his Centurion helmet. At least it didn't take 8 tries to get it right.

    Now why on the green planet we call home did I never think of installing a zipper?! My lord, man, that would cure all my forearm woes!

    I just happened to stumble upon this idea myself. I was scrolling through Instagram and there it was. Some dude had made a two part forearm piece.
    I thought "This is perfect for my MHW build! I'm stealing this idea!!!"

    I didn't want to start a new thread so I'm gonna ask those of you who are wise and experienced in different types of foam. I have found a local cosplay online cosplay supply store that has L200 sheet of foam available. Now my question is.... How does this compare to the standard puzzle mat sheets and a more dense foam like... lets say a 90kg sheet from Red Moon cosplay?
