Overwatch: Reaper costume

I still haven’t attached the knuckle busters to my left gauntlet, BUT, here’s a look at the “almost” completed gauntlet. Pay no attention to my arms, as I’m going to be working on some foam/latex muscle arms to wear. Shouldn’t be a big deal since you will only see just a small bit of it.

Also went ahead and permanently attached the knee to the left leg using fiberglass, some rare earth magnets, and JB weld... and took some cool pics in the dark.

Ammo belt finished!!! Ended up just ordering the shotgun shells from a shop on Etsy, and finishing them myself, but I’m happy with the results [emoji1360]

Almost finished up another belt AND the pendent.... also started work on the latex arms. I’m using my body suit that all the armor is going on as a base, since the sleeves aren’t required. I cut foam and glued them onto it... then I took two layers of panty hose and put it on top. Now I am coating them in contact cement and latex. Yes, I know that the forearm “circular” piece looks weird and unnatural, but there’s a good reason why. The arm bands (or whatever they are) will strap across that, so you won’t even see it, and the size makes it proportioned correctly with the gauntlet, once the arm bands/straps are glued on.

Went ahead and made the knuckle busters using the 3D prints from hydroid props and then used a carbon fiber vinyl wrap I found at the auto parts store... I liked it so much, I went ahead and starting wrapping all my carbon fiber pieces in this instead of the real stuff. It’s much smoother and more professional looking.

I’ve made lots of progress BUT for tonight, I only wanna post this... hopefully there will be more tomorrow. Still working out the shoulder padding to get it to lay properly, and I need to Velcro the hood into place/get it to sit properly, but I’m happy with how the proportions are looking.

Still more details left to add, a few more details to put on the armor, and a full belt left to make... but man it’s getting close. Most of this stuff is getting covered up by the coat, but still

Thigh armor is getting done.... I have a few small things left to do on these guys and some other small pieces, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Here’s a “sneak peak” of most of it together, though there’s still a full belt to be made and some other stuff. I also plan to mod the shoes just a bit to get them more accurate

Shotgun decals made by my friend DoomLives added... still waiting on my wood grain vinyl to arrive so I can wrap the handle and trigger guard.

Finishing this thing up completely tomorrow.... but man I’m happy with it. I love the proportions of it all put together.

Few more things to fix, paint touch ups, forgot to put on one of my belts (oops) and I have to finish the jacket straps, and it’s good [emoji1360]

Awesome!!! Can't wait to see it with the mask too. Looks like you pulled it right out of the game :)
