    Hey everyone!

    I am brand new here but not exactly new to the costume and prop thing (no idea why it took me so long to get here). However If didn't see any other Halloween 2012 posts around so I figured given most of these projects take a lot of time lots of people have been working for a while now to get new ones completed. Feel free to definitely post WIP suits, armor, and other costumes here!

    My plans are to finish my Scout Trooper from Star Wars and complete my brothers TDKR Bane costume. He's a bodybuilder so he fits the role better than I do. Hopefully I'll Have pictures of these WIP up in the near future. Until then, post away about future ideas!

    I'd kind of like to do a Nova Prospekt gaurd from Halflife 2. Mostly because I also want to make a combine pulse rifle.

    My friend's Halloween party theme is "oversized costumes" so people are doing things like coming as the Dr. Who box, etc. I'm debating doing a cardboard build of the S.N.A.K.E. armor from the old GI Joe toys.

    Working on a few things. Not sure which one will be for halloween. More than likely the steam punk frankenstein.

    Currently I'm about to start punching hair in this for a the albuquerque comic expo. I havent decided if i will hand punch all the hair or just the eyebrows and hairline and use a wig.

    Going to attempt to make CLU from Tron: Legacy--his trench coat/helmet from the Games. If I run into any snags that keep me from having it ready for Halloween, I'll be designing my own creepy doll costume. Goodness knows I have the wigs to pull it off.

    I'm trying my hand at the most accurate 89' Joker costume possibly conceived! Well, to the best of my ability, anyway.

    I've not got much lined up for Halloween but this is something I've wanted a long time, anyway. As of now, I'm currently trying to match the pants' colors (already have the pattern down) through Spoonflower but that's proving trickier than first imagined.

    That was one of my favorite accessories as a kid!! Do It!!


    I think I'm going to have to call my Steampunk Satyr project my Halloween this year, as I'm not going to be complete in time for Phoenix Comic Con in 3 weeks (and I'm literally scheduled at work EVERY day of it).

    Welcome to the forums :)

    I'm working on Tribes:Ascend helmets (Blood Eagle and Diamond Sword) But i hope to make the Diamond Sword light suit. With the hype of The Avengers i kinda want to make myself an Ironman (woman) suit.Or at least the Arc that he has but the Avengers style.

    For the first time in a great while I have no idea what I'm going to do for Halloween this year. I'm debating on whether to just go with something that I've worn previously or try to come up with something new. The only new costume idea that I have is some sort of Steampunk costume but at the same time I'd like something with a little more wow factor/recognizability for my work's Halloween costume contest.

    Hey

    I'm also starting on an Iron Man suit.

    It will be a Mark III however but this will be my first build of this kind. However, I have made a Sandtrooper costume so I'm not 100% new.

    My girlfriend and I are doing Hawkeye and Black Widow from the film. Should be pretty awesome because I've been told many times (mostly after MI4 came out) that I look like Jeremy Renner, and she's been told she kind of looks like Scarlette Johansson so it should work out pretty well...

    Plus I'm teaching her Krav Maga, so she'll be able to kick some tail too!

    I know it's kind of sacreligious to even bring it up on this forum, but does anyone have any idea how the top line Disguise costumes Black Widow is?
    The Avengers Black Widow Elite Adult Costume - Costumes, 802652

    It looks like a fairly decent material, and aside from the boot covers looks like it could be a pretty decent base to work from. Some tweaking here and there and it could be pretty good.

    Captain America: The First Avenger. Got an awesome helmet from roblenzz on here! Building the rest myself. Taking some time because I am making it at screen accurate as possible, but still on an extremely tight budget. Living in New York City is fantastic for finding everything you need, just having it cost a penny more than anywhere else.

    I'm working on gettting back into shape! I think I'm going to wear my Dark Knight armor this year, as halloween will be hot on the heels of the release of the Dark Knight Rises.

    I need to do some work on the suit, but it's nothing significant. The hard part will be fitting in it :D

    I'm currently working on an G1 Optimus Prime costume using cardboard and instructions from a source on instructables.

    I do have a question if anyone can answer however, I dl'ed a pep file of OP and printed it using the free pep viewer (no re-sizing, just wanted to see how it would turn out). As i'm gluingthe pieces together, why are the edge ID #s shown on the inside of the model as opposed to the outside? When you guys all pep, I see all the little #s on the face of your models and mine is on the inside...

    If my brother actually keeps his word this year (last year he suggested going as The Dude and Walter, but he flaked out), we'll be Sub-Zero and Scorpion. If not, I'm working on Rocky 3 (yellow w/ black stripes) and possibly Sonny Crockett/Miami Vice.
