In nutshell yes. Try tossing in a few periods and commas in next time ;) But thats the basic idea.

You've got to understand, this isn't just a cosplay B.net. The 405th's got a little higher standards.

Poor spelling and grammer indicates that you are not willing to spend an extra few seconds on a post (ie. then you must not care very much about the answer)

No one's yelling at you. We understand your excitement, just the proper use of grammar helps everyone read and understand your posts tremendously easier.

If it's too much effort to decipher what you've wrote, then you won't get any answerers to your questions.

if you want to do the work of sculptin the whole thing, GOOD LUCK!!!!, i made an exact cast of a pepakura helmet outta plaster and the thing still had to be worked on, but if you want to do the work then just take your time cause a few minor mistakes can ruin the whole thing...

yeah i know but i mean if i can make the helm or the other parts of the armor look real smooth with the pepakura armor i would do it in a heart beat.so if there is any way for me to make it look real nice as if i sculpted it i would have no problem.as a matter a fact i would like to see how your pep helm looks or the whole suit if possible so i can determin weather or not im ready for all that hard work rite now.

You know, If you said something along the lines of :" ok sure, a pep suit sounds like a better idea" you would have saved yourself so much time.

he, i finished my second suit and it took me only a couple of months... practice makes perfect i guess... I,m startin another helmet, some guy i know broke his 360 and im gonna make him a helmet to trade for.... but your better off makin a helmet with pepakura, but glue the pattern to thicker cardstock then what your printer can handle(try to leave off the gluing tabs and use masking tape to put together, this makes for a smother helmet without the little ridges), the helmet turns out to be a little sturdier when your all done... try finding the thick back board that comes in those packs of address labeld, the stuff thats alot thicker then paper but not a thick at cardboard, then go buy some fiberglass resin, you dont have to use actual fiberglass, you can use regular cloth material, the same effect if you layer it for under half the price...
