The First Piece.

When you start a new suit, what piece does everybody prefer to start with? I find that I tend to gravitate to the helmet first, as its arguably the most labor intensive piece, but scaling it is more difficult without the other pieces to compare to.

Since I am new to armour building, I started from the ground up. With my ODST suit I started with the shins. Build the stuff that is simple to get accustomed to the medium. Helmet will be the last thing I build.

Well.......everything said so far is perfectly logical......and contradictory. There is no one "Best Way" to build a suit. It is however it suits your need and your exp level. Go from head to toe or toe to head or any which way you feel........jump all over the place. Bottom line, just build as you see fit. Thinking which way is the best way is only going to get in the way. Just do. Enjoy. go and build.

I haven't started yet, but I am actually going to start with the undersuit for the my Reach spartan. I am super skinny so I need to put padding for my arms before building armor around it.
I want to do a Kat cosplay, but I'm worried that with my fluctuating weight will be a problem.

Kat, I'm sorry to be brutally honest, you can't use that as an excuse. I won't let you. I don't want to sound callus or cruel, but you will find a way despite any difficulties be they physical, emotional or psychological (we're all a bit crazy here) even if I have to make a trip out there to help you get started........Don't let something like a physical attribute stand in the way of something you want to do. Own it. Don't let it own you. There are a ton of people here that will help as well. Just ask. Looking forward to seeing a Kat suit out of you.....
