    Hey guys,
    ive decided to start a long in depth build of the paladin armour from the new Voltron series on netflix-
    *QUICK WARNING* I WILL NOT BE GIVING OUT THE TEMPLATES AS SOME ARE MODIFIED TEMPLATES FROM ONLINE STORES ( MAINLY EVILTEDSMITH )

    So to start out Im going to work my way down the armour starting from the helmet-
    for this I bought a template from EvilTedSmith(template here) and modified it to have more rounded edges

    Once that was done I added all the detail to it so i knew where to add in additional cuts-

    Now before I go any further I check again that these look the right size against my head-

    Im also going to be using the elbow /knee patterns later in this build -
    Thats all ive got for now until my foam arrives
    please subscribe to my Youtube GrizzlydesignsFX i will be doing a full foam fabrication video of me creating this helmet soon !!
    and my Etsy GrizzlydesignsFX.com
    :)

    some progress pictures -
    so I started by drawing and cutting my template out on my foam -

    after that I added in my detail by making small cuts that don't go all the way through and then heating up the foam, and then i shaped the side pieces to be more rounded-

    while i was at it i made templates for the hip pods and the chest armour ... I still have a lot of work to do on the chest but I got the basic shape -

    this isnt the final back i still have the backpack to glue on-
    i have to state that the final chest piece wont be 100% accurate as i thought i would put my "twist" on it :)

    my first attempt of the helmet came out alright but I have a lot of patching up to do -

    Sorry that this hasn't been very active- basically I made the whole chest piece and messed it all up. But I have corrected the helmet - if you want to buy one message me on my etsy!
