That is Kick-ass!! can you tell me wear you sourced the vest? I've been unable to find that design and was thinking about fabricating it myself (I'd rather not ;))

Thanks guys none of it is foam I made all the armour out of chlorine drums( I'm a lifeguard) I cut slits and folded the panels into position then pot riveted them, the helmet is made from paper machete and fibre glass

The vest is made from webbing, it was a lot of sewing but sounds like it was worth it haha
Great job on the vest and totally worth the effort :thumbsup
You made the helmet :eek! Fantastic:cool, that's a bit beyond my skill so I'll be ordering mine.:lol The trim on the armor is missing from most builds I've seen, did you use bias tape for that (thats my plan)? I don't suppose you have a build thread on this costume?:D

Honestly I'm a total novice, with the helmet it was just trial and error, I just studied the photos of big daddy a lot ha ha, for the trim I just used some off cuts of the fabric I used for the cape and glued it on, I don't have a thread but I should still have some photos on my old phone of when I was making the costume, I'll try get them up for you, I'm also a novice when it comes to using this site so bare with me ha ha
