    Stilt Recommendations

    Ebay is always worth a look, I managed to get a brand new pair for £40 or about $60 - bit of a bargain, but you can walk in them all day long

    IRON MAN - Mark VI - Just started...

    It's cheap and easy :) I have two halves done up to now, just looking to add paint to see how they work out - mini ones for the kids :) not a perfect finish, but it'll do :). Looking good :)

    Problems with materials!

    Have you tried camping / yoga mats? Their cheap and readily available. Sports Direct is usually good for about £4 a roll, just make sure you have at least one smooth side on the mat

    Anyone that would like to help me?

    Sorry dude not got that far yet - for other parts I've just measured how big I think the piece should be and used that as a guide - probably not gonna help on fingers though - although I'll probably use JoWe's easy foam hands....

    can yoga mat use in iron man suilt?

    What firebapx said - yeah I've got an IM and a War Machine from yoga / camping mats on the go for my kids - not the smoothest finish although the PVA helps - that said depending on the mat you buy, some have a much better finish

    Ironman Costume - Alternative to Resin and Bondo

    Looks great :) and probably much cheaper too! I guess the only down side I could think of, is how brittle is joint compound when it's dry? Definitely looks easier though :)

    Jack Skellington for Halloween

    Ok going hell for leather to get this finished for tomorrow, but here's a small Zero update - scrapped the idea of stuffing apart from the nose. Made a skull, ears, spine and front paws from chicken wire, skinned with Duct tape and then hot glued fabric on - plan is to attach the lead to Jack's...

    Jack Skellington for Halloween

    Thanks :) I have some old black curtains which I'm gonna destroy to cover the stilts - and funny you should mention Zero - I have some spare cloth and plan to attach him to a staff, quick mess about with some stuffing and elastic bands as a test run below....

    Jack Skellington for Halloween

    I used plumbers putty to build up the brows and the nose, resined it to give it some strength and then painted it - white auto spray paint and black acryllics
