    thanks for the comments. Madmax: none of our stuff was done using any files we just free handed it all. when you stare at things as long as we did you begin to see the basic shapes in it all..lol

    Locust costume is, quite simply amazing man, seriously, do you have any build details on this you could share, would love to know more!

    and if going by that one, the Sam armor is going to be mind-blowing!

    Wow man...your details on those are great. I especially like the foam straps on the last pic for your wife's armor. The paint is also amazing. Jealous that I don't have a set!

    JEEZ!!! her utility pack is freakin amazing. What did you use for the base of the pouches? is it foam? If so it looks totally transformed with all the texture work and hardware.

    Additionally, love the texture work on your locust flamethrower, the texturing on your muscle suit looks awesome and so's the color? I'd love to see more of the progress pics of the build.

    Question for you, what are you using to seal your foam before you paint it?

    thanks for the great comments guys. ill try and upload some WIP shots of everything later today. To answer some of your questions. We actually dont use anything to seal the foam everything is hard painted with acrylic paints. When it comes to the clean seam lines i always glue a very small amount at a time at the line then with that dry i do the fold, For most of the details i use a few different bits as well as wood burning tools. All the pouches were all done from scratch my wife came up with the method for those we had tried a couple different methods before we were able to get thim the way she liked it, as of right now im finishing up building her secound boot and about to start detailing them. She is working on the ab muscles as i type this. After that im going to install the lights. More pics to come

    I'm really impressed with the level of detail you have put into it. Could you clarify what bit you used and other tools you used for the detail work i.e. the lines you've made into the foam? The bits I have are not producing desirable results. For example, when would you use the heat tool vs dremel? Thanks.

    I have been checking back every so often to see if you have updated. You mentioned you were really busy. When you get a sec, would you mind telling me what sort of tools you used to make the detail lines and rivets in the foam? You mentioned bits and woodburning tools, if you could be specific it would be awesome! Thanks.

    ok guys i have an update but first i want to apologize for not having the pics up of the dremel bits i use and what i use them for on my builds. i have not forgot about them, for now i can say that if you check at lowes they sale a blue carry set with multiple bits i pretty much use them all for something or anything or another. as for the burner i use i got it from Micheals craft store and use used for burning detail into wood and i use it on some of the fine lines the only draw back to it is you have to be very steady or it could mess up the part so like everything else you need to practice with it. i hope this gives some insite and i hope to have a few pics of it to post soon.

    now for the update we have finished my wifes suit and did a photo shoot this past sunday the pics are not the greatest but i think they turned out awesome. in the pic the gun she is holding was made by Propcustomz and painted by me. here are a couple of pics and a link to my facebook page to see the rest

    Love the way you made your locust flesh look, it looks like something right out of the game. What was your base for that part of the body?

    ok guys im posting these pics here first. this is my finished locust costume. it was a long road but its finally done. The only problem with the suit is the helmet not having any fans or vents. i will be adding that this week, It was about 100 here its seemed like when we took the pics so it kinda went "take a pic, wipe the head, take a pic, wipe the head" lol but thats the point of these test runs. to find what needs to be fixed. anyway here are the pics
