    Hey guys i have not posted a new thread in a while but thought i would share the progress on my new locust build. This one is based on the Savage Marauder. I hand made the muscle suit with upholstery foam then skinned it with spandex and latex. I used more upholstery foam cut up to make the scales. All of the armor is made from eva foam and detailed with texturing using a iron and aluminum foil as well as using a heat gun to super heat the aluminum foil and make larger pits. i will have 5 inch platform suits so i will be about 6'2 or so when im done.

    Here is a front a back view of the body so far as well as the early hood and the belt

    Amazing attention to detail. I've always wanted to do a suit like this when I have the skills. I'll definitely be following this build.

    Updates on the suit. Got more paint work done and some of the stitching on the "leather" straps

    It gives me the sads to know you worked so hard on some parts that people will never see. The effort on parts of the muscle suit and skin detail on the shoulders. :( Looks so good, though.

    thanks. I plan on doing a spoof of the Old Spice guy in the suit one night for dragon con. That way all the muscles are seen and i will just wear the boots and mask and hood with a large white towel maybe dirty and covered in some green stuff

    What did you skin the muscle suit with? Seems pretty thin (and perfect in this application in relation to the striations and separation of muscle groups.)

    Excellent work!

    Nevermind... I was so distracted by the pictures, I missed your first paragraph.. Apologies.

    Last test fitting before the finial paint on everything and the body and just need to finish the thighs. The knees will be a cheat. I will make those separate after after im in the suit we will put them on and wrap them loosely with some badge wrap just to make it look like the knees are there. I have the emblem for the back square 3d printed just need to clean it up and attach it. I will also be putting in the lights or maybe finding some way to at least fake the lights.
