Hi everybody,

First post here and a brand new member. This is my first costume build and I'm not experienced at all but I've been kicking it into high gear to finish this thing. I started the project August 25th. My costume is an Iron Man MKVI built from varying thicknesses of eva foam.

In hindsight, I wish I would've started out with thinner foam than 12mm for some of the pieces that are the gray color and maybe 3D printed the helmet so I could have a hinged faceplate. Also, I learned to be more careful using the Exacto knife... (Warning some gore)

I cut the foam using my school's laser cutter which was excellent in making quick work of the cuts.

Here's the laser cutter doing some test cuts.

Currently waiting for the Plastidip to dry. I have a push light for the arc reactor and some ideas for eye lights. I also still have to cut the boots and hand/handplate. Running a time crunch here and haven't been able to get to the laser cutter.
