    Paint/cladding color options/methods for 1990 comics Guardians of the Galaxy Martinex?

    Hello non-con attendees, As you have found yourself, without cons for a deadline thing sit on a back-burner longer. =) I've refinished Iron Man's paint job but many other upgrades for him remain. The Comic expo that was to run in April was rescheduled, then completely cancelled for 2020. While...

    Critique my '68-85 comic Iron Man please, and tips on 3 min. skit?

    - No worries! it is what it is! =) What I mean for the upper torso is, I my process started by making a base-layer down to the end of my rib cage on the dummy. Next I added a 'pectoral muscle' on the preferred side and patterned onto those parts for the actual upper torso, which now also...

    Paint/cladding color options/methods for 1990 comics Guardians of the Galaxy Martinex?

    Thanks guys, I hadn't thought of either of these before. Together with Facebook forums I now have 12 leads to investigate for this. Thanks for your help!

    Paint/cladding color options/methods for 1990 comics Guardians of the Galaxy Martinex?

    Hello builders! I’m looking towards my next project, though physical work won’t begin until May – right after the local Con in late April where I’ll take an upgraded comics Iron Man. The character in mind is 1990’s Martinex as appearing in the first 5 issues of that year’s volume of the...

    Critique my '68-85 comic Iron Man please, and tips on 3 min. skit?

    Thanks! Not at all George, this is the kind of critique I'm looking for. It is by refining such points that we progress. I also would have accepted 'the grooves on the rear of the codpiece appear uneven/wavy; consider replacing with grooves that look more parallel'. =) - Stomach - Bugger here...

    Critique my '68-85 comic Iron Man please, and tips on 3 min. skit?

    Thanks for the comments folks! Montysaurus, I don't have a good sewing approach to get rid of the wrinkles, but the next comments might help there - stirrups for the legs and under-suit muscles for the arms. Psicorp7 & SMP Designs, I'll start looking into the foam muscle angle, purchasing or...

    Critique my '68-85 comic Iron Man please, and tips on 3 min. skit?

    Greetings humans that prefer to appear otherwise! My production of '68-85 comics Iron Man was a success! Now comes the upgrade stage before late April's Calgary Comic Expo. I am thinking I should compete with a 3 minute skit in it. While I'd been thinking I'd have better odds upgrading my Iron...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    Campus tour a win! The hip pods tilt out a bit, but not a big issue? Got dressed without a mirror so will be able to snug up the stomach wrap to codpiece better for next event. Also, the repulsors will look better in the dark. Was happy with how easily I was able to switch my repulsors on &...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    Cost me an hour of sleep to finish repulsors, but for night before first use that's not bad at all right? Didn't have time to replace neck wrap, but might before evening events - event after lunch is campus tour giving out candy. This is my first time using a breadboard, but it worked out...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    A pleasure! Clearly also a G1 fan...might be dating myself a bit! I go with what mode of costume design I want to try, and then a character that I connect with. I'm not as much for current movies as I haven't had so much time to connect with them. Thus far they've been fairly mainstream still...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    Thanks George! It also had original cartoon cannon sound with button hidden in the pivot control grip. Since you've said so, here are my other Transformers: 9.1 scale (except head) Optimus Prime, cardboard but with EVA axe. This is the 3rd upgrade of my 1st 'hard' costume and launch into...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    Agreed Montysaurus! As it happens I am wearing a 5" high neck wrap made of leftover red metallic body suit material from G1 cartoon Megatron, but will replace it with a 7~8" high version and pin it to the collar of the body suit to cover it in the back while still cover most of my neck. I don't...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    Thanks! Looking forward to first day of use events - candy give-out tour at work after lunch (arts facility), fireworks at 8pm, and then the bar adventure with $300 competition (won it last year). Having the next day booked off months ago for hangover/project afterglow/clean-up is a wonderful...

    Retro comic version Iron Man build launch with Q's!

    Thanks! While 'Bordeaux Red' was an option with Dupli-Color paints, I went with 'Metallic Red'. Of course I won't do so again as this is my last rattle-can painted cosplay before learning/investing in non-cracking methods. There will be no arms. Well, ok, I have been doing 4-5 sets bicep curls...
