    I use the 5 sec loctite super glue for initial bonding, which is very strong then I reinforce all my seams from behind with shoe goo. Let me tell ya man, indestructible! Shoe goo can get pricey but worth it. I've used it on many other things over the year and I've never had it bust loose. Whether of shoe soles or anything else. Turns out is bonds very well to Eva foam and it's still flexible. Get it at Walmart in the shoe section. I have a scrap forearm piece laying around that didn't turn out right but it's shoe goo from behide. I try to pull it apart everyday and I still haven't tore it yet. Haha

    I don't have a 3D printer like a lot of you rich folks. Heck, bills get any higher I'll have to replace my current one with a 1D printer! So I made this out of foam. Kinda free-handed it, and it's not square, but it looks good, so i'll stick with it.

    oh! gosh! I'm sorry, that's gross, what a mess. I'm sorry, excuse me, here, lemme clean that up a little bit...

    There, that's better. Sheesh!

    Now that I know what I'm doing, I decided my curaisse needed improving. So I improved it! I intend to form the gasket around the arms from scratch, in order to be more game accurate. I will also do the back and undersuit in like fashion.

    zachturner009 I just changed jobs and this new schedule is killing me for time, otherwise I'd already be done, I'm sure.

    On your suit, do you have pockets or storage compartments? Or just the thigh rig? I saw what PerniciousDuke did with his chest center piece, but I don't have that attachment, and I have things to carry. How do you do it?

    I just have a thigh rig, it held everything, I would have done pockets inside the chest, just didnt see a way to actually get it once my biceps and forearm pieces were on, so thigh rig was way easier.

    Gotcha. Guess i'll just have to rig me up a sweet thigh rig too, then. I'll do that after I'm totally done.

    For now, enjoy my nearly completed helmet:

    The visor is cut out and ready, just need to add padding before I insert it.

    Special thanks to TurboCharizard for his stencils. I've been wondering how I was gonna get those little details done.

    Dude, your foam work is borderline legendary. It is SO clean. I wish mine was that good. Looking forward to seeing (both of these projects) finished.

    Takes 1 and 2 for comparison.

    20181116_154016.jpg

    I'm much happier with this second torso than the first. It's more game- accurate, as well. I've not attempted the spine portions yet, but will probably attach those to the undersuit? We'll see.

    Here's a comparison shot of the back vs. The game for comparing:

    How does this look?

    Well, time for lunch. And the lunch-time picture dump:

    Ready? Let's go!
    20181121_131822.jpg

    Paying for the food...

    "Thanks, man!"
    "No problem, nice costume! "
    20181121_132926.jpg
    Ahhhhhh, food.
    For those who are curious, this is how much head room there is in an eclipse:

    *wakes up* huh! What!?! Did someone say I'm great?! True, I do need more pictures in my suit. But I need to get the undersuit done before it's actually "complete", and that's taking forever.

    I'll try to get something of a photoshoot in the next couple of days.

    For my 1,000th post I'd like to mirror in a small way what TurboCharizard did on his. PHOTO DUMP! haha

    I was hoping to have my MK V Reach undersuit completed by this post, but the cookie didn't crumble that way. Instead I tried a black flight suit. I'm not happy with it.

    Anyway, I shoveled my walk:
    20190107_165128.jpg 20190107_165622(0).jpg 20190107_165907.jpg
    Checked the mail:
    20190107_165507.jpg
    And after I finished my chores I took my beloved xbox 360 to the doctor to be fixed.

    First person in the mall turned out to be a huge Halo fan:
    20190107_174857.jpg
    which was cool.
    I couldn't find the stupid shop I was looking for, 'cuz I entered at the wrong end of the mall (which was kinda embarrassing, but no one saw my face so that's ok. ;P)
    20190107_175037.jpg 20190107_175031.jpg 20190107_175054.jpg
    After some detective work I finally located the place:
    20190107_175126.jpg 20190107_175141.jpg 20190107_175150.jpg
    These guys were pretty cool. I built up the good ol' 405th and told them to swing by. (Hi guys!)

    After they miraculously fixed the 360 problem by basically doing nothing (witchcraft!), I departed with great thanks.

    Then realized I hadn't done my PT today!
    MALL WALKING:
    20190107_180733.jpg 20190107_180800.jpg 20190107_180743.jpg
    Phew! That was intense! Time to relax!
    20190107_180928.jpg
    Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.......

    So my photographer and I decided after we left the mall we should check out historic 25th street in Ogden. They film a TV show here sometimes, but I forget the name of the thing. Anyway, if you see an old western tv show with a Spartan in the background, that'd be me. Oops! Haha
    Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures of that. :(

    I'd like to conclude with a great thanks to everyone here on the 405th. It's been a great ride, and very wonderful to see that at least in one place on the internet people aren't always rude, but in fact very helpful.

    Keep it real, everybody!
