    Started off with a cheep dollar store mask and filled it with clay so it would be sturdy
    then I sculpted on the mask features

    I like the rough, "hand-forged" look of the mask.

    Nice work, doing Doom again myself at the moment so nice to see someone taking a slightly different approach.

    Ham out.

    Wow, really nice work on Doom. He's always been my favorite Marvel bad guy.

    Nice work and all in all a pretty swift build. Did you make the arms and legs as tubes or did you strap / elasticate them? Also did you use the previously posted shoulder strapping method?

    Ham out!

    The both upper and lower arms are tubes and the legs are plates with straps in the back and I tie the ankle portion with the laces of the boots I have on. Yes I used that shoulder strap methods also the gold bits are attached to the shoulders

    Awesome, I ask because at 6am on the day of the con (yesterday) I had total brain freeze and couldn't for the life of me work out how to do my shoulders. I also completely messed up the strapping and had bits popping off all over on the day that needed safety pinning.

    Lots of work to do :)

    Looks Good...
    I always carry a lighter and a few hot glue sticks so if something is not staying where it should I can make it stay

    So I made this costume to help my friend. He does themed nights at the local baseball park to get more kids to come and be internist in both comic's and baseball. This is some excerpts from the skit that goes on... Its not the best plot wise but the kids dig it
