    Hi Guys - long time lurker and I've dabbled in various costume projects before, but nothing since I found the delights that this forum has to offer.....

    Anyways I after seeing Omel and Chimmera30's efforts I knew I couldn't use the fact I was broke as an excuse any longer... so here are the progress pics of my TDK build - mostly foam camping mats and some cardboard for the armour, the cowl is duct tape / card - I was aiming for Halloween this year, but a particularly vicious bout of man flu made that impossible, at least I have plenty of time for next year now :)

    Foam Armour and First Duct Tape cowl.....

    Didn't like the cowl so have binned that and started again with a modroc bass and putty for features:

    Then finally got round to shoving some paint on the thing.... Undersuit incidentally is an EDZ thermal jobbie from my bike riding days:

    Feel free to criticise etc :) I know it's not screen accurate, but worth a go :)

    ps. Leave the love handles alone :p

    Thanks guys, hopefully won't be too long before I have something more to show - I have an old pair of curtains that are looking pretty good for a cape right now, just hope the Mrs. doesn't notice they're gone......
