I loved the DC comics Under the Red Hood film so decided to put a costume together for Halloween/Cons.
First of thanks to blackkaos who provided me with the pep file for his Red Hood version 2.
Also thanks to Allfate and Mcoatsey for inspiration, references, and advice for my build.
I almost forgot, thanks to Stealth for all his very informative and noob friendly tutorials. Without those I would be totally lost.
And of course thanks to the RPF forums for all the fantastic info.
Ok so this is my first build, first time using pepakura, and first time using resin/fiberglass. I am hoping everthing will come out great but this going to be a great learning experience at the very least.
So far I have assembled the pep for the helmet (ready to be resined), started working on the knife and sheath. Got a candidate for the belt. Oh yea and the jacket (need to add buckles for the bottom).
As stated before I am using blackkaos pep file and it is fantastic to say the least. I did have to resize it though cuz i increased the scale thinking my head would be too big but it turned out to be the opposite. Helm to big lol. So kept the stock size and it works for me at 6'2 245lbs. Blackkaos is at 5'7 so I believe he told me he scaled down to 278mm.
For the knife I got the idea from mcoatsey to use the halo reach combat knife blue print over at the 405th, however instead of wood I used a pep file by travisgmyers (also at the 405th) and modded to look similar to the Red Hood's knife in the movie.
Well here's what i got so far and will update with my progress.
Thanks for looking.
