    Here are a few pics of my original sith armor I've been working on. The old republic's influence mixed with the look of some of the Secret Apprentices armor. not really based off any character or armor, just trying to make sure it looks Sith.

    Nice Work!!! Very Inspiring! It's really thick but looks flexible? What did you use for the armor?

    Re: Original Sith Armor build

    The foam is just basic foam flooring tiles , smooth on one side, textured on the other... and yes that is the bottom of a coke can haha, Ive made sci-fi like armor before for other projects and its surprising how well they work and look when you need those circular accents ...or like ear cups on a helmet. I use em alot



    check out the bottom for some pics of the steampunk armor I built, do notice the use of coke cans ha

    Re: Original Sith Armor build

    I use an OLFA razor blade that extends so its easier to cut thicker foam, its freaking sharp! cut my finger once it happened so fast and was so sharp I didnt even feel it...then i saw the blood :confused

    Olfa L-1 Heavy Duty Cutter / Knife

    Can't believe this isn't getting more attention, but I love custom Star Wars costumes... I love what you have done so far.... What are you planning on doing for the soft parts?

    Are you planning on having a full mask, or will it be a 1/2 mask?
