Ever since the Cylons appeared on television, I was hooked on the classic lines of the armor. The helmet has an iconic look and the chrome always looked cool! I've made various versions of the costume over the years with reference pictures wherever I could find them. Not until hearing of this forum a few months ago did I believe anyone else was actually trying to recreate the Cylon. I found some plans online that showed how to make one out of a shiny silver card, so I began my project. I did not spend any money on the card, since I used the dull brown kind at the bottom of shipping boxes. I'll post my pics as I progress. The picture shown was the sample of the shiny card that someone had posted. I am so grateful for the inspiration!
It's crazy how long it takes to get back to the hobby. I made some progress on the helmet. I included a pic of the printed instructions in the background from Universal Studios 2014 Bazookajo.me.UK. Those instructions are how I started this build. Later I will show some chest plate, and gauntlets of the same design. Many parts built already, just not posted.
So as I was able to let the hot glue cool, I glued both sides as seen. many of the paper patterns were traced onto poster board and then cut out for a stronger pattern to trace onto the chip board thin cardboard.
I had a plan to make this Cylon costume in two different ways. One is in cardboard that has been covered in 2mm craft foam, and the other is in cardboard and later has it filled with putty and eventually primed and painted. Here is a version that is covered in 2mm craft foam. It took longer to cover it in foam, but after installing a Larson Scanner, it makes a nice effect. Maybe I will chrome paint it later.
