Real nice suit, I like the scratch detail gives it more character. The effects and colours on your armor is excellent, much respect.

VERY thanks at all!!!
now I'm happy to share my experience for help.
Yes the armour look very metallic, this is how I made it
Excuse my bad english:

Materials: plexiglass (0,7 millimeters), glue, color (silver and black), sponge, brush

I have first make the all the armour in paper, like a tailor.
then I have cut the plexiglass,
I have blend it with a hot gun.

here there is an example of a piece:
the cut plexiglass

next I blend it with hot gun and join with rivet

now I take a shoulder to continue:

now color all with black:

Well now the trick how make realistic metal
take a glue like Bostick, I think there is in all the word. I have use the model 99.

with the sponge you apply the glue, and up and down up and down up and down, you stop after a few seconds when you see the surface like this

whait one minute for little dry and with another sponge give the silver, this is the first result:

well, now the last coloration. take the black and the brush, and detail it with your hands skill :)
Before and after the black with brush

for a good realism paint a black border leaving a little space before the end silver. (sorry for low quality of second photo, I have just do it with phone)

Now for answer a Scythe, we look the feet. For a lot of motives I prefer use boots and cover it with armour.
(sorry for low quality photo, I use my phone. Only first photo has make with digital camera)
in black, before final coloration:

next final coloration

I put a global photo of the costume over the manikin:


I assure you that in person the effect of armor is very good
all ask me how I did it to bend the metal so well
instead is plexiglass, easy to fold, low cost and excellent result.

I very very thank all member of this forum, because if now I have this costume was thanks to the hundreds of topic that I read, containing the their good recommendations.
And thank a google for help in traslate me LOL B)

Thanks Predator75 for this amazing idea for the feet! It was a big problem for me because I'm have a thing against latex. And this is the answer!

Make good feet is easy.
I have take my old boots +/- are like this
then I have make the armour over them.
all you can see is make with plexiglass of 0.7 mm
I have first make the forms with the paper, then cut the plexiglass with good scissors
next blend with a hot gun (a gun such a phon)

All is join with rivets, no glue.

look this

and this is a guide make with paint B) there is not any scale.... in the bead is open and it's close with velcro.

if you can, make a better closure of bead
the armour is glued on boots so:
boots foam armour

the foam allow the mobility that you need to walk
