Week 02 / 03, Helmet Kit. The basic stuff. Dremel, sanding, priming, painting, paint sealer, weather protection.

Oh yeah, one more thing about the chest LEDs, i used foil for the back to get rid of the hollow black area when it's turned on. Sample.

Week 04/05 - Eye mesh. I used to cosplay Spider-Man, and i've always loved the white eye comic book approach. So i applied it to Nova too.

Week 06/07 - Taking my time setting up LED casings to put into my vest. Standard 5050 LEDs. Found some make up casings from Spotlight then i just dremel-ed what i needed. Used baking paper as a diffuser, coz cheap!

Week 11 - Managed to finish off the helmet with a 9V power source (until i find a really compact 12V one, which is what i am looking for).
I am convinced that LED eye fashion is the trending thing for Netflix Ultraman villains now.
