An impromptu pic from last weekend. I am wrapping up the shin and foot guards. This is all out of 1/4" sealed foam. Works great as it will not melt when fiberglass resin is directly applied. Learned that trick about 2/3 of the way through. I'll forgo armor on the other shoulder and instead use some sort of sling to hold the combispear. Box on the waist is a sound board setup that plays many sounds via 7 momentary push buttons in sequential fashion. All adafruit parts. fx sound board 16 meg can hold a lot of wav/ogg files. I was advised that the sounds and costume will probably be a little on the scary side. For this years fan boy I will settle on a static plasma caster. Next year I will look at an animatronic one as the electronics and canon casting will take a substantial amount of work. I was thinking of adding a couple of faux skulls and write on one least favorite politician and the other your favorite politician as the humor may add to the costume or not, keeping out names will help fuel the on lookers imagination. If I am the joker I have to fit a joke in this costume some where... I have sourced a fixed collapsed combo spear off etsy.com that came out of thailand and I need to paint it. I did this due to lack of sufficient time for the costume build and money as well.
