I will be showing my progress as I make a 1978 style Cylon costume out of cardboard. The thin cardboard from packaging, not corrugated cardboard.

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!
