I'm working through my short list of costumes. No 3 on the list is the gold elite from halo. I'm using the version from 2 and the 3 multiplayer

the final will be in fiberglass.
I'm just building this up in eva then making molds.

So I reached a point where finishing it in time for dragon con 2017 wasn't realistic. I have several fiberglass parts but many more to go..

thanks! I'm not fond of wearing eva but using it to build shapes "quickly"( relatively speaking) is one of it's selling points. I'm trying to be forgiving of rough areas that i'll fill/sand later in the hard final.

Beautiful work so far, I love the figure you have positioned in your posts. It would be adorable if it rode on your shoulder or something once the suit is complete ;)
