well, i got inspired by the scouter build in the prop forum, and now im back in the old days, where i allways wanted to look like those guys.
Well, good news: now i can!

so this is the goal:


seems pretty straight forward actually :)

now, what is to do:
Chestpiece: working on it:

i allready printed it and am cutting right now :)
file is made by Dancing_fool, can be found here
saiajin.pdo - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
a million credit to him :)
Blue zentai Suit, compression suit, or maybe just blue longsleeve and pants.

White gloves, white boots

Muscle suit: Im gonna go and try to make one, as i dont have the money to buy one. I have lots of foam at home (because i had to make my bed bigger in my college dorm ;) ) that is pretty good i think. also, this muscle suit is multifunctional, so i can use it with other costumes as well :)

depending on motivation, a scouter -> scouter built, needs some work still :)

And also, depending on motivation, a black or blonde sayan hairstyle wig

pretty straight forward, and i am surprised there are close to none builds like this out there


now, this is my build thread, and i will update constantly :)

cheers
EoS

This will be a great build man..Will you be making this battle damaged? And will you be doing that to your own hair? or a wig?

I thought of doing that last year but I wanted to build Broly. He is a bad a**

Re: Starting a new build - Dragonball Z!!!

probably not battle damaged, as the muscle suit underneath will not be perfect enough to make it look lifelike

i think, if im doing the hair, its going to be a wig, but a hair wig, not foam or something. Like a blonde wig permanently made into that hairstyle.
but i havent really thought much about the hair

This is one of my favorite anime series from when I was younger. I always thought the saiyan (I'll use the english spelling, because I'm english :p) armor would make an awesome looking costume, but I haven't really seen it done right yet. I hadn't thought of using pep to do it though, always figured it would be a fabric/leather build.

Aww, you're ditching War Machine? Well, at least you're doing DBZ :). I was planning on trying this with my leftover foam, wife and time permitting.
Good luck!

Happy to have inspired you, buddy!
I would love a copy of this file. PM me if you want to work anything out with it.
I wish I had the capabilities to make such a complicated pep file, but Solidworks' sheet metal tool like to yell at me a lot...

Re: Starting a new build - Dragonball Z!!!

Hey Eye, you should link the Dancin_fool DBZ armor file so that you won't get so many people asking for it.

EDIT - Here is the file Link.
saiajin.pdo - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

you can add it to the first post.
thx stealth

i had it in my big pep folder, and couldnt find the origins. But now that i know it, credit will be given :)

Thep13rc3, and jawavive, klick the link for pep file :)
Topshape: no not ditching it, but its kinda cold so i cant continue atm :)
also i usually have a lot of build simultaniously, so nothing will ever be abandoned :)

I did this build in a hurry... Be careful to not leave out the smaller pieces they make a difference. As for the hair, I have seen some tutorials on the cosplay sites. This will look nice once done. Oh and If you need the scouter pm me I have a pdf of all of them.

I wouldnt waste money on the zentai. You can get fitted sweats or even a snug jogging suit that will work great. Good luck and share lots of pics on this one

i found that scouter pdf online, but it seemed real edgy and low poly
im not sure if yours is the same, but if its different, i would very much like it :)

Re: Starting a new build - Dragonball Z!!!

I have a question: Is this already scaled for someone at about 5'10" tall? I am very unfamiliar with pep, but I think I could build this and I want to make sure the scale is right first.

i am 6.2, i scaled it to 50 cm in height. Standard setting is 45 cm. just measure from your shoulder to your belt line, and you should be good :)

You got to make the eye lens thing too, so you can go "...over 9000!!!"

:lol

Hope you get it nailed!
