Re: Half life 2 - HEV Suit. (pic heavy) - Full suit-up pics added p2!

great work mister!

shame you'd never be allowed to carry a real crow bar to a Con'

Hows the med-pack carry all XD I just got a standard strap onto the leg carrier and fastened it to the thigh armour, little personal touches.

Hey guys! To quote you here m8, I did decide to build a carry on med-pack.

Its made from a foam box. The box rests in a fabric made bag, equipped with an old laptop strap. It holds a small drink bottle, my phone, super glue and keys n stuff. So i can be independant of my friends. Don't want to be asking them for stuff all the time.

Anyway here are the pics!

After construction i added a vial with fluo green liquid (to give it a half life touch), a black mesa patch and allot of weathering with washes to make it complete.
The strap will go around the shoulder under the armor. But above the foam flaps.

Allot of suit up pictures are comming as gamescom gets closer. Next weekend its there!!!! my first cosplay run and my first time wearing this in public!!! My friend will be bringing his camera so i should have loads of pictures.


Hope you enjoyed this little extra prop.

I really like how you used magnets to strap on the armor pieces. Could you go into a little more detail on how you went about that? Do the slide locks use magnets too? Or are they more like puzzle pieces that join together?

Hey thx! The magnets just hold it close, the slide lock is not really a 'lock' its more a way to keep everything aligned and flush. Leaving no gap. I had to add a standard backpack clicker on the bottom though. With the undersuit the magnets on the bottom couldn't hold and the suit clicks open. But with the clicker all is well now.

I just watched a video about the fan-made "Black Mesa" remake of the last level(s) of HL1, then wondered if anyone had made a good Gordon Freeman costume and eventually found this build!

I know it's an old thread, but had to say this was really great work! :D

The foam work looks amazing and very solid. I especially like the dovetailed joints in the shin-guards, that was genius.

I would love to see a bit of rub&buff silver added to the metallic parts to make them pop.
