Finally an update, I watched with great interest but I was a little disappointed. So much time has passed that they skipped over the part that I was most interested in, the conversion of the reference photos into 3d models for 3d printing. Also the creation of the dome, it was just sitting there looking perfect. I will probably watch it a couple dozen times, I love this stuff.

Has anyone here done any detail work on the interior of the helmet and have any advice from the process? I've seen some good screenshots posted, and little bit of talk about putting a hardhat-style headband inside, but I haven't seen anyone move much past the exterior and the LED strips.

I'm going to *try* to on mine as I want it as close to the hero prop as possible, but I'm still in the printing stage so it'll be a while. The rest of the helmet I'm confident about, but fabric and I have a short - and less-than-friendly - relationship so I'll be wading into new waters if I go that route.
 
Got these just for fun. (I don't think they are featured in the actual movie):

Should hold me over until my actual name badge comes in.
I know this was forever ago - but do you remember the brand/style of coveralls pictured here?

Recently made some upgrades to my suit for a photoshoot I did yesterday. I recently purchased a CR10 this year so I spent some time and modeled a new arm computer housing to replace my old one.

I also grew out a beard for a special "Mark Watney Space Pirate Shoot. I'll post the pictures as soon as they come back from editing.

Finally got to where I can start assembling the helmet, and the dome is just a HAIR too small! UGH. This helmet will be the death of me.

I am building a new helmet design and started working on the suit. Has anyone identified/build the neck foam piece?

The only ones I’ve seen used so far are the ones the 501st uses for the storm troopers. It’s similar but not the same. The fabric is shinier than the Martian version.

I guess I have to make one. Although it looks like a diving or welding neck protector.
