So I've been asked to be a cosplay judge at a convention here in Australia... I figured if i'm being a judge i better dress like one!
I'm building an armoured vest, helmet and modifying a Nerf gun for the Lawgiver... dress pants shirt and tie, just Casual Judge :D

Basing it off Dredd 2012 but putting in my own artistic influence i'm making the body armour with EVA foam but fiberglassing the helmet.

keeping the essence of Judge armour I drew the outlines then heated the foam into shape before bringing out the pieces 3 dimensionally.

starting the helmet

last is the Lawgiver... definately not screen accurate but certainly does have the feel of a Lawgiver

so I've attached the armour with velcro to an air soft vest i had forgotten about, works great... I also attached a mock Zip and had a friend who is an engraver/laser cutter make me up the Judge Badge.

looks fantastic, where did you get your visor?
thanks man! I first thought about using perspex but in the end i bought a cheap motorcycle helmet visor off of ebay. they had a few different colours too like gold, silver, black tint... i liked this just to be different :D

Nice spin on the Judge uniform. You've got the key elements locked in just right, that maintain the distnct judge look: helmet, vest, badge, LG. The casual look (no leathers) will save you from the agonizing heat build up that would otherwise exhaust you with a full suit outdoors or without shade or AC.
