    Ok. so maybe not complete, but done enough to submit pics for the NYCC Cosplay competition. Just need to do a couple of odds and ends before show time. Tighten up Velcro closure on back. A little more airbrush touch up, and then some non cosmetic stuff to help with wearing the suit. Thanks to all for there help and suggestions, especially George !

    Some have asked about the dimensions of the suit, so instead of pm I will just post stats here. He stands 6' 7" and is over 5' wide at the shoulders ( I have to go sideways through doors and even then I get stuck). Some have said the feet and legs look small. I have to agree that on the video and pics they do seem small, I'm assuming this is because of the angle of the camera and the overwhelming size of his hands and arms. His feet are over 2' long and 14" wide. His thigh measures 39" around. This is a very large costume. I wish I had thought to have my son stand next to me, he is 6' 3" tall and 185lbs. he looks like a 12 year old boy standing next to the
