#3 Xaevier on 9 years ago

What type of material/techniques do you use to make your armor?

#4 evaunit01berser on 9 years ago

dude? you seriously need a critique of this?

[QUOTE=Adamoluna;3417615]Sexy as hell. Not a surprise though. ;P

Honest constructive crit; you could consider repainting the letters and numbers, they appear very askew next to the ruler-straight edges of the armour. I'd buy one of those cheap alphabet/1-10 stencils you can get pretty much anywhere, or - if you want to be a perfectionist- make a stencil yourself.[/QUOTE]

Hi Adamoluna

im just going to repaint over it since Marvel is actually sending me official war machine decals "i know OMG". :D

Can you just give a brief summary? I like the way it looks and if you could at least tell me what finishing coat/type of material you used it would help a good deal, how you actually bent it into shape etc isn't that important to me.

#11 Xaevier on 9 years ago

[QUOTE=Adamoluna;3419885]quite possible he doesn't want to share his process, like a magician you know? ;) But you could create a suit like that using craft foam and styrene sheeting alone ([URL="http://amethyst-angel.com/armormaking_construction.html"]well known tut[/URL]), although you could go all the way and fiberglass it too (no need though). There's a tut about weathering your paint-job at the same site as the styrene sheeting tut, but if you want some really good advice you should go talk to the clerks at your local Games Workshop. They know how to make pretty much anything look like it's made of metal. Finish your paintjob with a varnish, and if you want to match this guy's War Machine look, I'd suggest one that dries only semi-glossy.

Your Knight looks very good btw! :)

Oh, and Anthony; don't forget to post your updated costume when it's done! ^^[/QUOTE]

Well it would be somewhat silly to think of cosplay tricks/things you do as something that need to be protected. And yeah I know styrene is a possibility, I just like to hear how other people make things since it helps a LOT in making your own stuff. I would never gotten anywhere on my own cosplays without suggestions/hearing how others did it and judging by the quality of his work I think the community would benefit a good deal from a tutorial or at least a brief synapses of the processes he uses.

I have no words for this. What can I say. It's AWESOME.

#13 Steam_Mouse on 9 years ago

Omg!!!! Omg!!! Omg!!! Marry Me!!!!!

#14 Giant Alucard on 8 years ago

lol, the costume is quiet awesome, no denying! But the method is more of less just foam over plastic, like is the armor making for fiberglass phobic thread. It's actually pretty easy once you figure out certain parts of it. I've seen a guy who's making the armor out of a couple trash cans haha, and its not half bad, just depends on how much effort you toss into it. I'm gonna start my own version of some of the armors (so I can figure out the correct patterns and mistakes along the way), but I'll definitly post whatever I figure out for those that want to make something like this for themselves (or use the parts for other costumes).

#15 Harlaown on 8 years ago

This costume is absolutley amazing! It's so accurate. OwO
I've seen your work on Youtube and i love how you made the helmet go up and down and have the eyes light up! Seriously cool stuff! <3

Keep it up! =3
