    M.I.N.I.O.N / Death's Head 2 Costume build
    Hello Everyone!
    This is my first post to your wonderful forum. There's a time and place for everything and after 25 years of having this cyborg tattooed on my back it's time to make him a reality!
    I've been working since Oct on a foam costume and my plan is to wear it to Emerald City Comic Con 2018 in March.

    What I'm going for is MINION from the first issue. I want all the straps and ammo pouches and shoulder armor. I like the look of MINION before he gets changed into Death's Head 2. I will be making two masks; one MINION complete and one Death's Head 2 which is broken on left side of face.
    I own the original blueprint drawn for the comics by Liam Sharp, I have the cover of issue #1 tattooed on my back, and I've also built him in 3D MAYA (every damn part!)
    I have a couple weeks of vacation coming up this month and I plan to finish as much as I can during that time.

    I pretty much have all the pieces in place, now I need to refine/detail and paint. Much of what is there are placeholders and will be rebuilt. I'm already working on another mask/helmet as the one in picture was just my first try at anything foam. The left arm is 'done' and painted with colored Plastidip. Everything will be fine tuned soon.

    The Cranial Disruption Syphon will be a build of it's own. Along with that I'll build at least one more weapon arm, something like a giant cyber claw with guns and blades.
    I bought a voice changer for 'robot voice'...I may or may not use it. The right eye is cybernetic/bionic so there will be a light there.
    Still have a ton of work to do ...but at this point I can see he's all there. Any comment and suggestion are greatly appreciated.
    Seattle Comic Con get ready for DEATH'S HEAD!
