Final Update for a while! (There are still a few things I want to do before I actually call this suit done)

I will say that this journey has basically reached the end. Last week Thursday night I finally did a full suit-up and got to see a dream of mine come into reality.

Even though I spent countless hours making this - I am still blown away by how it looked when it all came together.

My wife even took a video of me doing a full spin to see it from all angles:

After I did the suit-up on Thursday I packed it into a crate to drive down to Chicago on Friday for C2E2. This was my first time attending a convention and I wore the suit for ~6 Hours on Saturday. (Wore my Traxus on Friday with other folks)

I honestly can't wait to see even more pictures from the weekend as they become available.
I am so motivated right now...thanks

I got a bunch of fun looks and pictures from people as we walked around the neighborhood. The best though was a pizza delivery guy pulled over when he drove by and gave me a 5$ gift card for "having an awesome costume"

Was the Pizza Delivery guy from Papa Johns? Get it?
Also, I was looking at your suit over the last couple of days, getting an idea of how you did the airbrushing - really helped with mine!

I recently got a 3D printer (Prusa i3mk3s) and after finding the files from MoeSizzlac and helmet from Rainyfire on Thingiverse I decided I might want to print my own set in the future. The real push over the edge was stumbling on the full post of the build by JGPenland (found the cosplay Reddit post and he commented there to bring my back to 405th)

I've been playing around with and getting my printer dialed in and I can proudly say that I have finished printing the helmet. Next steps are to order more filament so that I can begin printing the armor and finish assembling the helmet. I will keep this post updated as I progress with my build. I am trying to get tickets to San Diego Comic Con next year and if I do I would use that as a goal to have my armor complete to wear for that.

First Attempt at printing part of the helmet: (Note the layer shifts since I hadn't dialed in my printer)

This piece ended up failing about half way through the print. That is OK though since I got it to print successfully the second time without layer shifts.

Here is the helmet mostly complete and currently being held together with painters tape:

Here is the helmet fully printed (still held together with painters tape). At this point I just had to put it on for a test fit! My wife ended up having to help me take it off since the opening was slightly too small and I couldn't get it off of my head without taking it apart. (there was some harassment about it too)

After the helmet sat on my desk for a few days I finally got around to taking the painters tape off and started to assemble it:

This is current state. I will post more pictures as it continues to progress.
Looking good!
