Hey y'all I've talked about my previous build in the current thread for Reach Build 3.0 and I decided to post up the progress and completed images I have of Build 2.0 into 2.5 in a separate thread to help keep the original thread on track. I might've posted pictures a few years back but that account is since gone :p

Pardon the quality of some of the pictures as well as the amount of crafting sins you're about to witness. This is from back in 2014 and I had nothing to really base the build off of. Regardless I loved this suit and had many great moments with it!

Build 2.0:
I used the textured side of the foam mats, I don't remember what my reasoning was but later there was a lot of regret.

This was not primed at all before painting, spray paint right on foam D:

I learned that you gotta prime it before you paint it.....

This build peeled and chipped everywhere, there was a paint trail showing everywhere I had been on the convention floor. But regardless of all the flaws, this will always have a special place in my heart.
