    I haven't been here for very long but I can say with some certaintly a few things that are probably shared by a few people here.

    1. Don't spam new threads. You created three new threads in a row asking the same questions about slightly different projects. Combine them into one thread.

    2. If we can't see the picture, we can't give advice. So I would invest in a slightly better camera.

    3. Basically you did step one of a pep build and then asked for advice. My advice is to pep and build one helmet from >Resin>Fiber>Bondo>Sand>Paint, and then see where you are and seek advice. Asking for advice about pep is like buying a lego set and taking a picture of the instructions and pieces and asking what next.

    Costuming is a very fun art form, so keep plugging away at it.

    -edit: An easy way to get non blurry pics is to do tripod your camera. Even using a small stack of books and setting your phone/camera on it helps alot.

    -Also, if you are doing alot of peping, If you arn't already, head over to the 405th(assumign it is online again) and read everything you can about what they do there. They are the pros at pepping.

    Answers to your "notes"
    1. I like to keep things organized, so I am creating different threads to eventually show the steps of the process

    2.I had a the wrong setting on the Camera.

    3. Again, I will show the steps from Pepakura to the final costume.

    4. Thanks for the Tripod advice.

    I want to apologize, I just re-read my thread and realized I have only posted half of what was supposed to be up there. When I get a chance I will fix my mistake.

    how did u connect the gauntlet with the elbow and the bicep so that it would be as one piece and still movable?

    And how on earth did u make it soo smooth?

    also i see that the bicep that you are using is from Mark VI, however the gauntlet is from mark III

    sweet! good luck! although my advice to you is to make some practise models. at least one. Because when I started I jumped staright into making an iron man helmet. How did it turn out? like a football with holes for eyes

    I think he means that the Helm is a complicated part to start with if you don't have much experience. Even when I had decent experience with Pepakura I still made 3 before I was statisfied with the result..

    The boots are fairly easy to make, If you are making Robo's like I am, I suggest starting with one of them

    ^ i meant exactly that. a helmet seems nice and easy but it has a lot of crafty details which are easy to screw up and it will be a big disappointment since you would have spent a lot of time on cutting out all pieces.

    @ Leander:

    nice. I am also using robo's model, hoping to put together a whole suit i ave a concern about boots. They are made so that at the bottom they have free (air) space inside them, how do you fiberglass them if you cant get inside them?

    Or did you cut off the bottom bit (the wave-like shape at the bottom) which allowed you to harden the boots from the inside and be able to put them over any shoes?
