I used Darkside501st pro files along with the standard EVA foam.
8 Layers of tacky glue, 3 layers of plasti-dip, 3 layers of adhesion promoter, and 5 layers of metropolitan Nu-Life boot spray.
Paracord buckles and nylon straps hold the suits pieces together.

I have 4 Arduino UNOS installed

One for each Bionic repulsor, in which uses a muscle sensor from advancer technologies to activate the sound effects and less in my hands with a simple flex of my forearms.

One arduino for the 13 led arc reactor witch i made from sheet metal, coper wiring, a sink tap, and reactor set pieces.

and the 4th Arduino powers my voice changer/sound board. the mic is located in my chin and i have a key pad on my chest piece to activate the sound effects/AC/DC music tracks.

I have 10 2600mah lithium ion battery packs to power it all.

My biggest issues with my build was getting everything to fit just right and the placement of the electronics/switches/battery packs.

This entry just needs a proof pic to be complete. I've also asked that the mods move your gallery pic into the new members category. Good luck!
