Now THATS pride in your work! Superb!
Great work sir. I work with foamies myself, the strength, and light weight are amazing. I have also done a Dark Knight, and Comedian costume with it. If you want to protect the paint you can clear coat it with Dupli-color. Also, if you want a working countdown system see Ei'luj, Julie makes great stuff. Again, damn good work.
Thanks Bovine13, I gotta admit you were my inspiration on this, I seen your suits you done I was convinced that I had to do my own. Now you see what I have done and am still doing, its a lot more fun than I thought it ever would be and very challenging at the same time. I love the process and the end results.I dub you Foamie Master! I love these types of builds. That is uber impressive. Once painted you would never guess that was foam armor. Awesome work!
I really like the paint job on the armor. After you sprayed it with Toxic Death Spray and then the Hammered Metal, it completely looks like metal, with no indication that there was ever any foam underneath. The pitting effect really looks good with this method.
Best of luck with the rest of this build. I hope everything works out well and that you'll be ready in time for your convention. Oh, and make sure you're using a respirator when you work with Toxic Death Spray -- er, Plasti-Dip.
egad James! Awesome work. I was just looking around at your other posts because you commented on my teeth (well not mine in my head ). You do amazing work! I can't wait to start working on armor. I will definitely look to this post for guidance. thanks for all the pics.
