    This is one of my favorite armor sets from the game destiny. I have a friend who introduced me to EVA foam and this is my first costume.

    I made all the patterns from eyeballing images of the armor. I made card stock pieces first and then used them as patterns for my EVA foam (from Lowes).

    The shirt is a multicam combat shirt from an army surplus store.

    I 3d printed my replica gun at my school library using a file from myminifactory.com.

    Next step is planning some battle damage and weathering and getting the straps.

    I changed the design a little bit, because I don't want to make the leg armor. I made a holster instead.

    Did some weathering. I wanted the armor to look like it had been to mars. IMG_20150916_165734488.jpg IMG_20150916_165742027.jpg IMG_20150916_165820998_HDR.jpg IMG_20150916_165923019_HDR.jpg IMG_20150916_170006029_HDR.jpg IMG_20150916_171006314.jpg

    Tried out some different methods for the glowing eye. I think I like the red led better than the orange glow stick. IMG_20150918_200028886.jpg IMG_20150918_195523373.jpg IMG_20150918_194823317.jpg IMG_20150918_195459879.jpg

    I made some changes to the eye. One red led in the center. IMG_20150922_130324926.jpg IMG_20150922_130355301.jpg

    All the armor pieces are basically done. Now it is time to sew a cloak. I took a sewing class in middle school....so, its been a while since I have sewn anything. I have some ideas on what I want to cloak to look like, but I am really afraid of making something that clashes with the costume colors. Here is a poster that I have been basing a lot of my color and clothing choices on. I want to make a cloak that looks something like in the poster (sage, and caramel colors). I have also included a screenshot from the game of the armor I am making, cause I don't think I included a very good picture when I started out. destiny_hunter.jpg IMG_20150922_164709498.jpg Destiny_20150923084327.jpg

    I just got my gloves in the mail. I am way more excited about them than I should be. IMG_20150926_130821355.jpg IMG_20150926_130844384.jpg IMG_20150926_130957484.jpg IMG_20150926_131035714.jpg

    Finished sewing my cloak this weekend. Here are some pictures my daughter took while I wore it around the house. She is only three so she got her finger in the way sometimes. Now I just need to find a way to get the cloak to stay tucked into the chest area, and get the straps to stay tight. I'll take some better pictures later with a better background.

    Well everything is finally done. I made a holster today and did some velcro and strapping work. I'll post the finished product around Halloween. IMG_20151024_151827747_HDR.jpg
