Well, it has been a hot minute. And I am still a little irked about some things but I think I am ready to be back.

First things first the state of my armor: Not great.

It has been around the block a few times and is really starting to show its wear in some places. Not to mention my own body's changes as I have changed over the course of a decade. For those of you who don't know me or my build a little back story.

I started my first build in preparation for the Halo 4 midnight release. which I finished by rushing some parts of the build.

I was pretty happy with my accomplishment at the time and went to my first convention where I received some wonderful criticism and critiques that would jumpstart my build to the next level. Over the course of the next year, I did a partial rebuild and upgrade that left me truly happy with both my skill and the armor I had created.

But life happens and I got busy after college. My hoppy had to fall to the wayside so that I could focus on my career and making money. And as a result of time and a few conventions, the suit is starting to crumble. both from use and from the use in wearing it but also mishandling by airline staff that left a great deal of it smashed and in dire need of restructuring. I had gotten it back on its feet for a time but much doesn't fit the way it used to.

All this brings us to today! I am revamping my poor little suit to life once again. And I already have some progress to show for it.

I am making a new helmet to start, but much of the suit is going to be replaced. so on with the pictures:

I will keep a post reserved for all rebuild progress in the next post.

Big props to you for committing to the pep method! I know your patience will be rewarded
I used Pep for my first suit entirely and as I moved on to upgrades I used some foam. But Pep has been my background for my lifetime of armoring. I know that they end up being a bit heavier I like the sturdy feel of these parts.

It is just this 1 pep file that has so many micro folds that my hands can barely keep up. I have had to break out the tweezers for most of these tiny pieces.

well as is usually the case making something the second time is a little easier. I finished the other side:

It is coming together a little slow but that is to be expected for someone that has been out of the game for a while.
