I am going to be making a pepakura armor and I am wanting to know what the budget would be. My current budget is $200 dollars and no more. I will not be doing the dual-visor method due to the price tag of this method. My question is will $200 will be enough for a good quality halo armor?

Thank you,

P.S. If anyone could, could they tell me the price range I will be looking at?
A full suit or just a helm? You could do a full no frills suit with no bondo for that much. And the helm would have to skimp on LED's and fans.

You have enough.

250 sheets : 15$
Fiberglass : 25$
Bondo : 22$
4 LEDs 10mm : 7$

Where I live, this is the price.

Visor : 30$
Dual : 60$
Dremel : 45$

I think everything is listed...

Thank you, I have enough. :D I already own a dremel (my father does) so even with the dual-layer it will be on the cheap side of $129. :D
Don't forget batteryies, wiring, solder, battery mounts, helmet padding, duct tape, paint, sandpaper, gloves, ect. Theres alot more than just the materials that it's made of.
