Here's a an update on the helmet. Like the other pieces it has yet to be detailed/weathered.

I was able to fit the fan system in the front of the helmet. I was afraid it would add too much weight to the front (helmet loves to slid down) even with padding, but the padding works. Stays on my head with no sliding.

Originally wanted 2 fans, but there was no space. It's fine though as 1 is actually good enough for me. A little bonus was the portable charger had a blue led that turned on when being used. I forgot to take a pic, but I'll try to get one later. The blue light gave the visor a slight glow that is quite noticeable in the dark. Just a little extra for the fun of it.
Tommorrow I'm going to put the whole thing on and walk around for a while. All that's left is just detailing/weathering and it will be con ready!

Walking around is quite easy and comfortable. Some pieces tend to shift around so some extra padding in the shins and forearms. I added a little bit too much padding to biceps. Only thing that ripped was right bicep, fortunately it ripped at a seam so I will reinforce that with cc. I also plan on taking out some of the inner bicep so that it gives me some room under my arm. Despite the comically large shoulders, I can still put on and take off my helmet with ease. Helmet fan makes a HUGE difference when it comes to helmet fogging up. Will post another update showcasing my complete 100% build before the con. Until then!

Hi again! Finally completed my build (no pics just yet!). Just took about 2 months from start to finish. I plan on taking photos the next day. I also thought of a theme for my armor since I haven't really thought of one while building it. I decided to go with a Doom theme, so this build is called "The Doom Sparten". I painted on the Mark of the Slayer on my shotgun and helmet.

I went pretty heavy on the weathering, so that it looked like I fought some demons. I added multiple deep claw marks to the armor by cutting out chunks of foam as well as just running the blade over the surface to create small slashes.

I really like your build! What kind of fan did you use? and how did you wire it? I am looking to do something similar with my chief helmet!
Thx! I'm using Dual Modular Ball Bearing 4500rpm Fan Kit by HenrysHelmetFans on Etsy. They are pretty pricy but very worth and very easy to put together (no soldering of any kind since they clip together). I only needed one to keep my visor from fogging up.

This does require a separate USB portable charger, which I put at the top of my helmet.
