I was lucky enough to purchase one of these completed helmets from Daniel and I cannot speak highly enough of his work. It’s seriously FLAWLESS!! I can’t wait to build a proper head display for it. And Daniel I hope you’ll be making casts of that chest piece!!!
In other news I have slowly been working on this all I need it the shins, boots and undersuit then it’s ready for painting. So I have started testing things for the undersuit. I have made a negative out of mdf (sealed with fibreglass resin) and using latex rubber I can make each individual part that is flexible.
Got one of the shins done today
I’m not going to the level of detail I would usually because the suit is innacurrate (I made the files back only when the first trailer dropped) and will be my personal stunt suit for skits and vids. It will get damaged either way.
The under-suit will be made from latex. I made a negative template on my mannequin out of tape then transferred the patterns to 2mm mdf. I glue all the pieces down and sealed it with fibreglass resin. Once cured I painted it with enamel and wet sanded for a smooth finish. After several days of layering latex I demolded it and I now have flexible material I can glue to my morph suit. All the pieces will be made this way as it is a cheap way to do things with the supplies I have.
Everything is looking awesome! Really loving the quality being put in. However is it a whole latex under suit your doing or just sections? Maybe I missed it but I would expect you would try and get some breathability out of the suit so you don’t over heat.
