well here's the story, a few years ago i made a bio from a paintball mask, was terrible but i learnt form it and got hooked on pred costumes. so, last year i bought a mask off ebay cheap. turns out it was a priks elder, so after a year of sitting there i paint it. then get a cheap muscle man suit and latex it up, bambooie dreads. the painting on the muscle suit is poo and will be redone

it stayed like this for a long time, until i found a source of foamies, so i made a belt system to hide a gap where my trousers and muscle suit end. i also had the idea of "safety" wristblades, coz i plan on wearing this out to a party on halloween and then into town to some pubs, diudn't think doormen would look to kindly on resin or metal blades, all foam for now then.

then thanks to Lee i have some feet, painted those up on a sunny afternoon with some strange looks from customers

then after that i made some shin armour to hid the join between trousers and feet. the reason i am using trousers is coz this year it's budget and i want pockets.

then lee provided me with some hands, pre painted and thankfully they aren;t too different from what i hope my finished suit will turn out like.

and then i tried it all on today for the first time, was good fun planning what to put on next so i didn't get stuck, soon realise a second pair of hands is a must. so got my bad tempered stepdad to help and take some pictures, he only took 2 and one of them was poo, so after 10 mins of posing and giving instructions i got this.

as a side note, i got hold of a mysteria alien trophy head and couldn't help but turn it into a shield AVP style, won;t be having it on for this halloween coz it weighs a ton, but it looks good

i have a lot to do to finish this suit but only a few things i would like to do before halloween, as far as i am concerned for now after a small repaint my skin is complete. i do require a neck ring and body net though, then chest and backpack and i will be ready for this year.
next year i hope to have a full skin suit some proper armour, looking at carls, awesome work, better start saving tho. and a bio, want something a bit different so might be making that one myself.
i am pleased with the way my suit is turning out, thanks to Lee for providing me with some key parts and dangerdavey for making the mask, i love it

well my legs arrived from usurper on tuesday, off to town i went tuesday afternoon and bought me some more foamies and some more games workshop paints.
set up early weds morning for a few hours painting before work. the plan was to repaint the torso and paint the legs at the same time to blend the whole suit together a bit. armed with a my trusty (but old) devilbiss super "63 and my leaky compressor i set to work.
i was a little worried when the base coat didn;t look to be coving too well but it all worked out fine in the end. colours used for those interested and in this order: bleached bone, desert yellow, bestial brown, scorched brown, chaos black. i am pleased with the results and it blends quite nicely into hands, feet and mask, i planned to repaint the neck of my mask but my compressor hose finally packed in so that put an end to that.

things left to do before halloween:
computer gaunt, plan on making this a small box to keep my wallet and phone in for the time being
neckring - next on list, priority really
chest armour
one shoulder armour
backpack maybe
also the shin armour needs making a little higher as the legs are slightly shorter than i guessed


her's a few pics of my duct tape dummy suited up. when i wear the suit the belt doesn't ride so high and also the gap between torso and legs is alot smaller

out in the wind and rain today for a test fitting, needed to see which bits i need to change and add. so far from looking at the picturs apart from painting the shin extentions and underside of the armour i see the belt need to be made wider and perhaps the legs mad ea little darker, but enjoy the pics, oh, photography courtesy of Elmaloy, random norwegian girl who is stalking me :D
