Ok, well I am brand new to making cospaly costumes. I love halloween and dress up every year but I do prostectic make up and such
<------ Thumb nail :D. But after being on here looking at all you guys and gals work. Talking and taking it all in I decided to build myself a robot !!! The Iron Patriot suit :$. I have never made anything like this before this is my first time making anything pep'd or foam or resin or anything else. So please be gentle :rolleyes. What sucks it that I didnt know about this contest or I would have taken more progress pics. I guess the good this is I have not finished the suit yet so I will take more pics and better progress pics with the stuff I have left to do. I will add the two failed helmets I did :facepalm to the pics I have in the drop box and post them. I am using foam for the build and I tried the bondo and resin .... I suck at that so I am going to attempt the Polyurethane resin Xrobots method on the suit when I am done so I will document the last of the parts I have to make. The helmet, finger, cannon, and have to redo the shins as they are too small. Then the coating the parts, painting and electronics. I will document them well with pics and what products I used and how I used them. For all to see. One thing for noobs like me is I decided to cut out the templates from the paper then glue them to the foam them cut them out that way I found I get exact copies of parts for fitting when gluing. I was having issues trying to trace then cut and stuff not being how I wanted thus the two failed helmets. I am also going to try to add a mixture of PVA glue and water to a spray bottle and spary on the mixture to coat the foam. I hope that this allows even coat with no brush marks!!! Thought of that all on my own!!! :thumbsup;) Any way I think I can pass for Don Cheadle ( my wife says I look better) I just hope the suit looks good too. SOOOOOO here we go !!!! IRON PATRIOT FIRST ATTEMPT AT ANYTHINGLIKE THIS !!!!!

Re: Jappa's 2013 Halloween Costume Contest Entry&amp;amp;quot; Iron Patriot

OK, well I finnally got so me time to do some work on the suit I am almost done now I did the hand s and electronics for them I also worked on the helmet. I only have to finish the cannon and redo the shins and then start the coating process with glue then plastic then paint. I think that part will be interesting I dont think I have really seen anyone document the process with coating foam with plastic. Anyway here are some pics. 2013-10-07 16.22.44.jpg 2013-10-07 16.22.49.jpg 2013-10-07 16.22.55.jpg 2013-10-07 16.23.00.jpg 2013-10-07 16.23.03.jpg 2013-10-07 16.43.05.jpg 2013-10-07 17.29.34.jpg 2013-10-07 17.29.47.jpg 2013-10-07 17.29.58.jpg 2013-10-07 19.23.43.jpg 2013-10-07 19.23.51.jpg 2013-10-07 19.24.24.jpg 2013-10-08 02.21.21.jpg 2013-10-08 02.21.28.jpg 2013-10-08 02.21.32.jpg 2013-10-08 02.21.49.jpg 2013-10-08 02.52.31.jpg 2013-10-08 02.53.43.jpg
