Hi guys! Newbie to the group, though I've been at the 405th for a little while. Since this build isn't getting much love over there (non-halo and all that) I thought I would share the progress here and hopefully get some pointers and such. This is kind of a "go big or go home" build, so I think I might be a little insane.... Pics! Size comparison: Some details: Current status: I've also been working on the armor, but as that's all still in pep form (no resin/rondo) I'll post those pics later in the armor section. I've got a pipe in the center of the staff for support, and some insulating foam for stability in the center part. All I need to do at this point is sand it to make it more round, then start coloring! My goal is to have this and a full set of armor ready for NDK, which is in September. Seems like a while, but considering it has taken me since last November to even get this far.... Hope I have time! Pointers, tips, constructive criticism requested and welcomed! First time prop anything, so I'd love the help. Also, sorry for the huge pics. Is there a sticky with resizing tips?
